A new government White Paper is set to be discussed in parliament on Monday, in the wake of the 'Tracy Brabin off-the shoulder frock row', and a further incident on Friday, when another female MP showed up for work wearing a bikini.
Brabin was criticised in the media for wearing the unconventional slinky, sexy dress which all-but exposed her right nipple as she spoke in the Commons last week, but she reacted coolly by saying:
"This was one of my less-racy numbers, Baby!"
Following her lead, the Tory MP for Ruislip West, Alison Tartt, entered the Chamber on Friday morning wearing a yellow polka-dot bikini, a huge wide-brimmed straw hat, large sunglasses, and sipping a cocktail from a huge tumbler with an umbrella in it.
This was topped during the afternoon session by the Labour MP for Blackburn, Emma Wiggle, who tiptoed in, sporting a ballerina's pink tutu.
She halted in front of the opposition bench and did a pirouette.
The House will now be forced to act before all sense is lost, whereby fancy dress becomes the norm, and members turn up wearing clown suits that match their abilities as politicians.
