MP undressed in the chamber

Nottingham North MP Graham Allen was interrupted by the Speaker in mid-sentence earlier and told to sit down.

He dared to try and speak while being "undressed in the chamber" - he was missing a tie.

Lobbydog feels solidarity after being chucked out of the Press Gallery last year for not wearing a jacket.

Naughty naughty LD, you know that as a stiff upper lipped Englishman you must wear a jacket at all times in temperatures of over over 20 degrees, especially in places where there is no air-conditioning.

Lobbydog said...

lol. Yes, we didn't get where we are today by taking our jackets off.

As he was doing this to support the UK Youth Parliament, I for one am very grateful.
