Proceedings in The Senate are regulated by this document.
Here's a quote "Senators should encourage courteous and civilised debate which is characterised by "good temper and moderation".
This is Victorian Greens Senator/Village Idiot Janet Rice with her special contribution to the national discourse.
The poor old darling might need a carer.
She's apparently incapable of conducting herself independently in accordance with societal norms.
Janet, here's another extract from the rules governing how Australians expect our Senators to behave.
7. Courtesies of debate
By its nature, debate governed by known procedural rules is inherently orderly and facilitates rational discussion of matters of all kinds, including matters on which opinions may be deeply and passionately divided. A hallmark of parliamentary debate is the application of certain protections to observe courtesies that are fundamental to respect for the institutions of government in its different manifestations.
Why did you join The Senate. Wouldn't you be more at home in a circus?
The kindly Samantha Maiden has provided us with further and better particulars about Senator Rice's unparliamentary performance today.
As Sam points out, the Senator is not "new" at all. This is her 3rd term.
There is thus no excuse for her behaviour - she should know better.
