Parliamentary Procedure

I took a tour of the House of Lords and the House of Commons today, and the guide insisted that I could not wear a hat inside the Palace of Westminster.  (Those damn Americans–we never show any respect!)

Anyway, I thought I’d share this classic exchange from about twenty years ago that I found in a book at the gift shop:

MP for Knutsford:  I am not raising a point of order, Mr. Speaker.  I am raising a point of order on points of order that are not points of order.

The SPEAKER:  Points of order on points of order that are not points of order are not points of order.
