Congratulations, Danny!

By prolonging the inter-legislature break to March 10th, you will have waited 175 days since the last session to re-open the House of Assembly, breaking your own previous mark of 171 days and taking full ownership of fifth and sixth place in post-Confederation history. You now rank behind only Smallwood for the longest interval between the last sitting of one legislature, and the first of the following one.

But wait! There's more!

You will also beat your own previous record of a 149-day break since the election, which you set in 2003. You will now have the fourth- and fifth-sorriest post-Confederation record, and the gold and silver medals in post-Smallwood history, leaving Frank Moores' 1975 two-month mark in the dust.

You're awesome! Congratulations!
