No applause from the gallery if you please

Recommended Posts

These are the words the fat controller intoned, as reported on T.H. today when the climate change legislation was passed.    Words fail.

His job is to apply the rules. This he did.

Imagine if the plebs were allowed to cheer or jeer at will.

I am no fan of the man but I totally agree with him here.

It is not a soap filmed with an audience

Who are these weirdos that sit in the gallery anyway? I mean, I can understand if they're family or friends and about to meet up with one of the MHKs for dinner afterwards but I can't for the life of me imagine being sad enough to want to sit and watch a session of the Keys. I'd sooner sit and talk to pigeons at Lord Street.

I imagine for this debate that it would be green looneys and millenials filling the public gallery.

Haha, you managed to get a lot into that Helmut. I have a very strange picture in my mind's eye now!

I like to be thorough - you seem in in the know Max therefore would you have any inside / Forum ready info on how the Mylchreest official car and Honda Marshall bike contracts appear seamless through the lodge .....
