Order! Order!

 

Order order, order! in the house.

The honourable member to my left

is not acting so honourable.

He will resume his seat.

 

Order! order! Order!

The minister for health will cease making

unhealthy derogative statements

across the floor.

 

Order ! order! Order! weve had enough interjections for today.

I name the Minister for education.

He will stay behind and write me a hundred lines.

 

I will not behave like a child in parliament time.
