Speaker John Bercow praises behaviour of a baby in the Commons

  • The shameful actions of Theresa May’s government will not be forgotten in Scotland

THE SNP's MPs have walked out on mass at Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, after the Speaker of the House refused a call by Ian Blackford to have an emergency vote and demanded he leave the chamber.

Mr Blackford tried to use an arcane procedure demanding the "House sit in private" - a motion that requires a vote of MPs on whether to clear public galleries.

The SNP has described this as a "democratic outrage" and claimed that Scotland's voice is being silenced while UK Government ministers carried out a "power grab".

"I think the people of Scotland have to reflect on what has happened here - a Conservative government has stripped powers from the Scottish Parliament and is not prepared to give us the opportunity to debate this".

A baby sitting in the public gallery of the House of Commons has been praised for her good behaviour during today's explosive meeting - and even got a round of applause.

"We are giving message to the government that we will take them on, we are not prepared to sit back and see powers taken from the Scottish parliament", he added.

What had Ian Blackford said?

That is a democratic outrage.

He used the parliamentary procedure to ensure the will of the Scottish Parliament is respected and that Brexit legislation pauses until the Scottish Parliament's motion is considered as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.

The unprecedented event brought PMQs to a temporary halt as Mr Bercow refused his demands.

He was followed by some 30 of his SNP members. Such a complex endeavour is bound to complicate the agenda of Prime Minister Theresa May as she tries to negotiate Brexit.

We walked out of PMQs because Scotland's voice is being ignored, Scottish democracy is being disrespected.

"We hear from the Prime Minister about respecting devolution". Yet last night she pressed ahead with a power-grab in direct opposition to Scotland's elected Parliament.

Most Scottish lawmakers are unhappy at a clause in the European Union withdrawal bill that temporarily restricts the Scottish, Northern Irish and Welsh assembly's powers, leaving them in the hands of the United Kingdom government while the rules governing Britain after Brexit are redrawn. Look at this morning's interview with Scottish secretary David Mundell, who was repeatedly asked why there was next to no time given for debate of issues related to devolution.

SNP leader and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted minutes later that she was "right behind" her party's MPs.
