weird UK law

Under the current rules, only the Speaker or the MP with "the call" (on his or her feet to speak) can be filmed, a restriction television and print media have fought against for years.

so long as they do it within the privacy of their own home, its fine.

The UK law seems absolutely correct, and will still be so in the unlikely event other MPS stayed sober, awake, present or silent.

A debate consists of listening to the guy who is speaking and then listening to the guy who answers him.

Now for real fun, watch footage of the Sri Lankan Parliament. Apart from punch ups with Buddhist monks on the floor, you've got the guy who ran off with the mace (once again a minister I believe) and a load more!
