Who's in charge here anyway?
We all love a bit of a parliamentary barney, especially when it happens in other countries. It makes us feel all smug and civilised and first-worldy and sophisticated.
When we see footage of people roaring at each other in some South American so-called parliament, we have a good laugh and nod sagely, 'Those crazy South Americans. They don't have a long and distinguished history of parliamentary democracy like us'.
Or maybe we see a bit of parliamentary fisticuffs in Italy or somewhere down that region. And we think, 'Ah, the Mediterraneans, too passionate, lack the cool heads and self-control we northern Europeans have'.
