An SNP MP was forced to apologise to the House of Commons after sweary tirade against the Government. David Linden was objecting to Home Office minister Chris Philip praising the UK‘s approach to asylum seekers and foreign nationals. The Scottish politician stood up to directly oppose the comments, but broke a major rule of the House of Commons.
Mr Linden said: “I’m sorry, the minister is just talking absolute c*** here.”
Immediately, the Speaker of the House intervened and ordered Mr Linden to withdraw his use of profanity.
The Scottish MP acquiesced, but couldn’t resist adding: “I withdraw the word c***, but I would say it’s absolute nonsense.”
He then proceeded to hit out at Mr Philip’s argument.
Mr Linden told the House: “He talks about how welcoming the UK is.
“This is the same UK Government that had ‘go home’ vans going around communities.
“It’s the same UK Government that’s got a hostile environment.
“So can I just suggest he cut to the chase and address the actual question?”
