Bedlam erupts in Commons as fuming Speaker Lindsay Hoyle THROWS OUT two Scot Nats for heckling Boris Johnson | The Sun

BEDLAM erupted in the Commons today as fuming Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle threw out a pair of gobby Scot Nats.

Loudmouth Alba MPs Kenny MacAskill and Neale Hanvey were escorted from the chamber after heckling Boris Johnson.

Mr MacAskill could be heard trying to raise a point of order and appeared to say "we need a referendum", before he was drowned out by other MPs.

He then refused to sit down and continued to speak, prompting Sir Lindsay to act.

The Speaker said: "I will not tolerate such behaviour. If you want to go out, go out now.

"If you stand again, I will order you out. Make your mind up."

Mr MacAskill rose to his feet again before Mr Hanvey also stood up and started speaking, but he could not be heard over the heckling from Tory MPs.

Sir Lindsay then named the pair, meaning they are suspended from the House.

He said: "Neale Hanvey, I'm now naming you and Kenny MacAskill to leave this chamber. Serjeant, deal with them.

The Speaker's Office confirmed the pair have been suspended from the Commons for five sitting days.

After the protest, Mr Hanvey said in a statement: "Scotland's mandate for an independence referendum must be respected.

"Scottish MPs are in Westminster to settle up for the people of Scotland, not to settle down.

"Why should we respect the rules of the House of Commons when Westminster will not respect Scottish democracy.

"People back home are sick and tired of the House of Commons dismissing the democratic right of Scotland to determine its own future.

"Scotland will not be held hostage by any UK Prime Minister, especially one on the fag end of his premiership."
