Yesterday at the commencement of Parliament's day, Maurice Williamson, by way of a 'point of order', welcomed the current contestants of the NZ Miss Universe competition who were in the gallery having been in his office in the hour before the house sat.
They were welcomed with applause and Speaker Smith in the spirit of the moment suggested that it probably did not fit with standing orders and the day resumed.
Today Green MP Jan Logie will by way of a point of order welcome some feminist groupies as a protest to what she felt was a sexist move by the males of the house yesterday.
My mental image seems dominated by Bradford, Delahuntey and other uglies but I guess Wussel will lead the applause, celebrating the moment.
