Speaker Wilson wins Muppet award

Speaker Wilson get the muppet award today for refusing to send Rodney Hides privilege complaint tot he Privileges Committee on the basis that;

This is not a matter which which I can deal with.

For the Speaker to deal with a matter of privilege the matter must be raised at the earliest opportunity and in any case before the next sitting of the House after it occurs (see SO 392). The matter of which you complain (an alleged misleading of the House on 12 May 2005) was raised at the time and was dealt with by me then. There can be no further “earliest opportunity” at which a matter of privilege which occured in a previous Parliament can be raised with the Speaker.

This speaker plays fast and loose with the rules and does so at the behest of the Prime Minister.

Speaker Margaret Wilson you are…..Janice.
