What the hell? Our Prime Minister just locked the doors to parliament, again. (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/16533) And this time there weren't any coalition of opposition parties afoot -- no, it seems that our executive has shut down our legislature, for two months, largely to impede an embarrassing investigation into war crimes in Afghanistan. This is getting to be a really unpleasant holiday tradition.

(Can we please get Wilkonson and Levy back for another diavlog? Their conversation was probably the only good thing to come out of our last political blowup.)
