Differences in parliamentary debate in Europe

Whenever I have seen clips from the British House of Commons, I’ve always thought it was absolutely ridiculous about how a “debate” is conducted with half the chamber yelling at the other. A few months ago, I heard about how a smoke bomb had been thrown in the Ukrainian parliament. Just a few days ago I decided to compare this to how things work in the Danish parliament, and I thought to myself:

Europe has got it all!
United in diversity! Amen!!

Denmark (Calm, quiet and orderly):

United Kingdom (Loud, irratative and disorderly):

Ukraine (Egg throwing, fighting and smoke bombs):
