Bercow jokes that baby in the Commons is better behaved than MPs

The House of Commons descended into chaos as the SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford was expelled for trying to call a stunt vote in the middle of PMQs.

Turning to the speaker, he said: "Under the circumstances, given the disrespect shown, I have got no option but to ask that this House sits in private".

"The PM silenced Scotland's voice".

He stated: "I really do hope that the people of Scotland listened very carefully to what the prime minister said, because the reality of the situation is that powers enshrined under the Scotland Act 1998 are being grabbed back by this parliament today".

MPs from the party walked out of the question session in protest, with many shouting "bye!" as they left.

He made the weird and telling claim that 'even if we'd had 100 hours of debate, the situation wouldn't have changed, ' proving the United Kingdom government's contempt for Scottish devolution and desire to rollback the powers of the devolved parliament.

However, May responded: "We do expect that the outcome of the whole Brexit is a significant increase in the decision making power of Holyrood".

His actions today were as a direct result of the democratic outrage in the House of Commons last night, as the Tories' power grab on devolved administrations was not debated in the chamber, and Labour abstained on a devolution amendment in a shocking dereliction of duty. That is a democratic outrage.

Just 19 minutes were allocated for debate at Westminster on issues related to devolution during the EU Withdrawal Bill debate last night - 19 minutes during which not one Scottish MP was given the opportunity to speak, the entire time was hogged by cabinet office minister David Lidington.

He then demanded a vote on the issue, something which Bercow refused to consent to until PMQs had concluded.

He did, followed by the rest of the SNP MPs.

The SNP's Ian Blackford was thrown out of the chamber by the speaker of parliament because he refused to sit down after demanding a new debate on Scotland and Brexit. She has completely ignored Scotland.

"We hear from the Prime Minister about respecting devolution".

While Conservatives at Westminster say some of these must come to Parliament to allow for common frameworks to be established in areas such as agriculture and environmental regulations, ministers at Holyrood fear the powers of the Scottish Parliament could be restrained for up to seven years.

Moments later, Nicola Sturgeon tweeted she was "right behind" her party's MPs.
