MP Nadhim Zahawi’s musical tie hits the wrong note

London, Jan 20 (THAINDIAN NEWS) It might not be such a good idea to wear musical ties around especially when you are going to the parliament.

A member of parliament for Tory, Nadhim Zahawi, had to apologize to his fellow members of parliament when his tie accidentally started making sounds. To make matters worse, the sound of the tie was picked by the house’s microphone.

Zahawi was on the floor of the house debating on education cuts. Out of the blue, the tie started to emit some sounds and the lights on the tie also started blinking. He initially seemed to have no clue as to how the sound could be stopped. He struggled to put the alarm off but he had to fumble for sometime before the alarm could be silenced.

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, Dawn Primarolo, had some words of advice for the MP. Primarolo told Zahawi that, “Perhaps next time the gentleman would be more selective in the ties that he wears in the chamber. And then we won’t need the musical accompaniment.”

That was one loud tie. It costs around £10 and it is a special tie that is sold by the Beating Bowel Cancer organization.
