In a heated debate on the government’s strategy with regards to Iran the shadow secretary of state for equalities dropped the F-bomb twice while responding to the Defence Secretary statement. Elsewhere in his speech, he called for the resignation of the Foreign Secretary and was extremely critical of the government’s decision to withdraw from the JCPOA – a move which has been condemned by two former conservative prime ministers.
ThePootisPower refused to withdraw his unparliamentary language and was thrown out of the House of Commons by the speakership, this is quite extraordinary given that he is a member of Labour’s frontbench team and there will no doubt be questions raised about his temperament to serve in cabinet should the party be elected to government after the general election. His comments were also supported by the infamous Shadow Home Secretary who echoed his support the members comments with the offending statement. This isn’t the first time in the week to which he has drawn attention to himself with him making an error about Baghdad, the capital of Iraq being in Iran.
The Classical Liberal Leader /u/HiddeVdV96 gave the telegraph the following statement:
I think it’s a tragedy that it has come to this, but it was the right decision. MPs should be an example of good behavior for all people in the UK and swearing like that in the HOC is something that has to be taken seriously. I’m glad that the Deputy Speakers did something about that, let this set an example for the future.
He also told the Telegraph that he believed Labour should seriously reconsider thepootispowers role on the front bench.
The Defence Secretary /u/seimer1234 said that “Poot’s lack of knowledge on the Middle East is quite concerning, and this, coupled with his unparliamentary language resulting in his expulsion from the chamber, should be a cause of concern for anyone who would consider putting the Labour Party back into power, given these are the characters that shall make up their cabinet””
Labour told the Telegraph that they did not endorse not endorse the behavior of the pootispower during the debate of the statement regarding Iran. They stated that they believe that the Government’s reckless statement on Iran merited fierce criticism but still believe that debate in the Commons should always abide by the standards dictated by the rules in the chamber. When pressed whether any action would occur they said a warning had been issued and that if incidents like this are repeated then they will take action.
