Here's a tasty audio clip of a Canadian Member of Parliament banging his fellow MPs' heads together (metaphorically) over their petty procedural squabbling. Thanks to the CBC's As It Happens for providing it. (Link fixed -- sorry!)

    I’m only getting a 21-second clip of the intro.   No tongue-lashing to be heard…  Hopefully, the link will be fixed by tomorrow morning.

  2. Same as shutz. The clip is truncated.

    Alternatively the clip can be found at - 
    http://www.cbc.ca/asithappens/popupaudio.html?clipIds=2224821456,%202224824476,%202224827647, you just need to fast forward to 24:20

    Same as the two other guys. Tiny clip, no tongue lashing.

    Same.  The OP clip is 21 secs.  The clip from  Mark’s comment won’t play at all for me in Chrome or IE.  Tantalus had it easy in comparison!

    Nice to see the guy I voted for have some common sense.

    Seems fine now! I wish our parliament had more of these sorts of guys….

    “This, quite frankly, is not what we’re about.”

    Could y’all clone him and send some copies south of the border, please?

    The original link still isn’t working here. Shame, it’s always good to hear politicians with a bit of backbone.
