Thank The Gods Of Sensible Bureaucracy, We Have A Boring Budget

The world may be burning around us but those fires are just keeping us warm here in the quiet, sensible Queen City. Our budget debate was a total snoozefest. But not quite so sleepy that I actually fell asleep during the six hours of deliberations. Oh no. I was buzzing on the high of a slow, steady government that isn't being dissolved from within by the crazed machinations of amphetamine-fuelled white supremacists.

So if you're looking for a respite from the geo-political gong show, you've come to the right place. Close your CNN tab, sit back and read my tweets from council's Feb 13 special budget meeting and remember a time when politics was less freakish than professional wrestling. I guarantee there isn't a single leaked dossier or Russian water sports scandal in here anywhere. Enjoy the serenity…
