    Australian politician pours fuel over himself in Parliament, gets kicked out

    A Brisbane, Australia politician concerned about pollution caused by cruise ships has been kicked out of Parliament for 24 hrs, for his 'serious and dangerous' act of bringing some of the black gunk into the building. Andrew Laming was over-enthusiastic demonstrating his concerns to fellow ministers, rubbing it on his hands while spilling it on the floor and seating.

    Liberal MP Andrew Laming has been thrown out of Parliament and scolded by the Speaker for bringing a jar of black "bunker" fuel into the chamber and pouring it out onto his hand, in protest at the pollution left by cruise ship liners... Speaker Bronwyn Bishop has taken the Government backbencher to task over the "reckless" and "serious" incident and suspended him from the House for 24 hours.

    "In his remarks the member himself acknowledged the dangerous nature of the material, setting aside the member's own offence in making use of props it is highly disorderly to bring dangerous and flammable substances into each of the chambers," she said.
