Current rabble poll

What question was going through your mind while watching the dust-up in the House of Commons?

Finally, a bench-clearing brawl in the House of Commons. 

The NDP were deliberately blocking Conservative Party whip Gord Brown from taking his seat in a bit of parliamentary gamesmanship. Justin Trudeau wasn't having it and left his seat to physically move Brown past Mulcair's ruffians. One of those ruffians, Ruth Ellen Brousseau, got an elbow in her chest for her troubles (and didn't turn into a pillar of salt).

Mulcair blustered, the Conservatives postured and Trudeau apologized. Then Trudeau apologized again. And again.

What question was running through your mind as you watched this calamity unfold?
