Things not to take into the House of Commons

The Metro lists some of the items confiscated by the Police from visitors to the Houses Of Parliament over the last six months.

These include 12 darts, a sword, an egg, five imitation police helmets (child’s size), a horse crop, a rock – and three megaphones:

Two keen gardeners were prevented from entering with a pair of secateurs and six daredevils tried to take in bungee cords.

One visitor was forced to surrender ten hipflasks and others have tried to get in with piercing kits, a grenade lighter, a guitar and a pair of plastic handcuffs.

They add that eleven potential mischief-makers tried to take in cans of shaving foam in July, the month media tycoon Rupert Murdoch was hit as he gave evidence in front of a parliamentary committee.

Despite this one got through and was able to attack the proprietor of the late News of the World with a makeshift 'custard pie'. I wonder if security at the Welsh Assembly is so eventful.
The thing I am most distressed about being taken into the House is the Tories rampantly dogmatic anti-public service agenda, you really can forgive bungee rope and the odd dart in comparison.
at least they confiscate items at westminster, I am told at the senedd you can get in with anything
