Laughing in the House

Jane Clifton (as usual) captures wonderfully yesterday in the House as Winston demanded repeatedly that Gerry Brownlee be made to apologise for interjecting during a point or order from the Rt Hon.

Gerry it seems did not interject, he just laughed loudly, and hence wasn’t seeing that he had interjected. How-ever Winston kept whining so finally the Speaker told Gerry he had to apologise. The result:

Mr Brownlee: “I apologise. Point of order!”

Ms Wilson: “Point of order, Mr Brownlee?”

Mr Brownlee: “What have I just apologised for?”

That was hilarious. Game, set and match to Brownlee.
