t-shirts, fashion, stuff...

carolinelucas1401aI’ll be honest, I’m not 100% sure what the Speaker of the House of Commons actually does. Are you? I have an inkling that it’s something to do with being a sort of prefect separating squabbling schoolchildren, only with politicians.

John Bercow, current Speaker has just issued a ban on slogan t-shirts in the House of Commons. After Green MP Caroline Lucas sported a t-shirt with a ‘No More Page Three’ slogan, a 12 page dress code was launched, demanding that men wear suits and ties and women sport similar formal attire and banning “the ostentatious display of badges, brand names, slogans or other forms of advertising of either commercial or non commercial causes is not in order”

Definitely reminds me of my school prefects.
