Parliament In Consistency Shocker!

The houses of parliament and its inhabitants are rightly mocked by left and right for being two faced, so it is news when consistency is shown.

Today in Parliament there was a debate on banning page 3 of the Sun and one of the speakers was Green party MP Caroline Lucas who decided to wear a "No More Page 3" t-shirt ( link to video)

"Green MP Caroline Lucas has been told to cover up a T-shirt displaying the slogan "No More Page Three" in large lettering during a Commons debate.
She wore the white T-shirt at the start of a debate on media sexism.
Chairman of the session, Labour's Jimmy Hood, interrupted her and told her to "put her jacket back on" and comply with Westminster's dress code."

Now lets rewind a couple of years to this Tory MP :

For once we should celebrate and applaud Parliament for being consistent!
