Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

House of Commons rules

The BBC lists some things you can’t do while in Parliament: no hands in pockets, no military medals may be worn, and so on. But I found this interesting and most politically relevant: "Finally, members must not die on the premises! This is because the Palace of Westminster is a royal palace where commoners may not die. Any deaths on the premises are said to have taken place at St. Thomas’ Hospital - the nearest hospital to the palace."
