Accepting responsibility

While I find a minority parliament to be among the most honest forms of government possible within the existing system -- and to those who mourn its ineffectiveness, I remind that compromise can be a highly desirable thing -- I could wish for a government that would start truly governing, instead of acting like an opposition party. Answers are not answers when they are phrased only as qualitative comparisons to what has been before.

Are we not adults? Is it not time to stop constantly comparing, constantly blaming on those who came before, constantly ducking responsibility?
