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.
