Txting OK In Prlmt

Found over at textually is the news that Australia is allowing MPs to send SMS text messages while in session. They’ve already been able to use laptops to send email, so this is just an extension of that. Still it would be interesting to find out how the politicians use such services in the course of a Parliamentary session. Are they using it for political purposes, or for goofing off?
