PMQs: SNP chief Ian Blackford expelled from Commons prompting mass walkout from social gathering colleagues
Prime minister’s questions descended into chaos right now because the SNP chief was expelled from the Commons – prompting a mass walkout from his social gathering colleagues.
Ian Blackford was ordered out by a flustered John Bercow, after he refused to take a seat down in a protest over a failure to debate what he known as a Brexit “energy seize” from Scotland.
The row held up questions from a number of minutes, earlier than the SNP MPs left the chamber en masse – some shouting and pointing on the Speaker and Tory MPs.
The SNP was livid after a strict guillotine on debate on the EU Withdrawal Invoice left simply 15 minutes to debate a sequence of devolution controversies on Tuesday night.
