Parliament was in a state of flux today as Speaker Trevor Mallard utilised his past teaching experience to reign in the National Party. 

However, he took it a step too far at one stage, resulting in a tell-off by Judith Collins.

"The member will lose his head if he keeps shaking it like that," Mr Mallard warned National's Simon Bridges. 

After making National Mr Bridges withdraw a question and apologise, National Party leader Bill English and fellow MPs Gerry Brownlee and Jamie-Lee Ross all raised points of order over technicalities. 

Ms Collins then got involved, "I don't usually raise points of order, I do however think it is not helpful when words such as 'that member will lose his head' are used in the House. I'd like you to reflect on that".
