New Tory MP Kemi Badenoch's lively maiden speech

New Conservative MP Kemi Badenoch delivers a colourful maiden speech in the House of Commons using a Woody Allen quotation.

Making a maiden speech is a rite of passage for new MPs. So far 76 members of the June 2017 intake have made their first speech in the House of Commons. When the Commons resumes next month, eight more will get the chance to take the plunge.
