Where did this whole "body guard" thing come from for ministers?

I have seen this a number of times. The speaker comes in late, is ushered in by body guards and is escorted out so that no one gets a chance to interact with him/her.

I really detest this. I think it smacks of pride and arrogance.

Is this really necessary?

What could possibly happen to a minister that they need THAT kind of protection?

So do they just come in, minister, get their offering and then split?

This really HONKS me off!!!! (could you tell?)
