  1. *sigh* 'Nother grand waste of time and taxpayer money...

    I would be happy to sponsor a bill that would put the financial burden of all the stoopid stuff on the personal doorstep of the members responsible. If they want to waste time and money on idiocy, they have to pay for it themselves!

  2. I can understand this if we've seen cases where they've been used to attack people. But I'd be willing to let them wear it if thats not the case. I think a background check could be in order. If the guy has a record of violence it would concern me as an MP.

    It could pose a potential security threat in another scenario. If a person bent on murdering a politician managed to obtain press credentials, they could pose as a Sikh and walk right up to an MP with the murder weapon getting a free pass through security. Tough call really.

    Cheers
    Paul
