Saturday's DomPost editorial was a rather funny parody about missing clauses from the proposed minor party Code of Conduct;
We will behave in a manner that enhances the dignity and decorum of the House. (Members wishing to gesture at each other across the floor of the House will use only the middle finger of the right hand. Using two fingers causes disorder.)
And Deborah Coddington is also suitably impressed with said Code;
Last week, Parliament's minor parties signed a code of conduct so MPs behave nicely to each other. Isn't that what Standing Orders are for? This code looks suspiciously like a desperate attempt at headline grabbing. Act's Rodney Hide says he's now the "bad boy trying to be good". Does anyone fall for that? I've had more than my share of men behaving badly, and they never truly change.
Not having had "my share of men behaving badly" I couldn't possibly comment.
