Furious Scots walk out of United Kingdom parliament over Brexit

Share

Lawmakers from the Scottish National Party (SNP) staged a dramatic walkout from the British parliament on Wednesday after their leader was ordered to leave the House of Commons in a row over Brexit.

He said: "Due to the legislation we passed this week 120 extra powers will be going to Holyrood - this is going to enhance the devolution settlement, not in any way restrict it".

Speaking to the BBC immediately after the incident, Mr Blackford said: "Scotland's voice has not been heard, we have had changes to the devolution settlement that were pushed through last night without Scottish MPs voices being heard".

Mr Blackford said Scotland had been "plunged into a constitutional crisis" as a result of the UK Government's actions and demanded that emergency legislation be brought forward.

The prime minister's spokesman said: "That sort of stunt effectively means that the SNP members who were down on the order paper to ask the PM questions can't represent their constituents".

"They are the masters of manufactured grievance and the people of Scotland are sick of it".

It is a power grab and the MPs from Scotland were not given even the courtesy of debating it last night. That is a democratic outrage.

Bercow said: "I'm not hearing that at this time and I'm not obliged to do so is my clear understanding...it might be for the convenience of the house for the matter to be addressed at the conclusion of the session..."

Ian Blackford was thrown out of the chamber by the Commons Speaker because he refused to sit down after demanding a new debate on Scotland and Brexit.

'That's undemocratic, that is a slight to the Scottish Parliament and to the people of Scotland'.

The party's Westminster leader was then followed by all other SNP MPs. "But the Prime Minister has ignored Scotland". Proceedings on the EU Withdrawal Bill last night were a democratic outrage and the Scottish Parliament must be respected. Such a complex endeavour is bound to complicate the agenda of Prime Minister Theresa May as she tries to negotiate Brexit. "Not one single Scottish MP was able to speak in that debate", he added.

SNP MPs have simply been doing their job - standing up for their constituents - and the Tory MP who suggested they should commit suicide instead says everything about how little some on the pro-Brexit right value democracy.

Mr Bowie also hit out at Mr Blackford, saying: "By walking out of the chamber in a pre-prepared parliamentary stunt he actually gave up the opportunity to hold the government to account and actually have a debate about the very issue he is complaining he hasn't had a debate on".
