Boris Johnson ordered to sit down as Parliament descends into farce

Boris Johnson was berated for dodging the rules on parliamentary behaviour during bad-tempered scenes in PMQs today.Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle repeatedly clashed with Boris Johnson as the Prime Minister attempted to question Sir Keir Starmer about any links with Mishcon de Reya.Sir Lindsay told Mr Johnson: “I don’t want to fall out about it, I’ve made it very clear – it is Prime Minister’s Questions, it’s not for the Opposition to answer your questions.“Whether we like it or not those are the rules of the game that we’re all into and we play by the rules, don’t we? And we respect this House, so let’s respect the House.”After Mr Johnson attempted to ask again about the issue in a later exchange, the Speaker said: “Prime Minister, sit down. I’m not going to be challenged, you may be the Prime Minister of this country but in this House I’m in charge.”Mr Johnson later accused Sir Keir of “Mish-conduct”, which prompted calls from the Labour benches for the comment to be withdrawn.The Speaker said: “I don’t think this has done this House any good today. I’ll be quite honest, I think it’s been ill-tempered, I think it shows the public that this House has not learnt from the other week, I need this House to gain respect but it starts by individuals showing respect for each other.”Credit: Parliamentlive.tv

Conservative MP brands government's face mask advice is ‘mumbo jumbo’

A Conservative MP has said the government’s advice on face masks is “mumbo jumbo”. Desmond Swayne said the different approaches taken in England and Scotland had served as a useful experiment to test how effective they are.On Saturday, Boris Johnson announced masks would be compulsory in shops and on public transport to counter the threat of the new omicron variant.Prior to that, there were no requirements to social distance or wear masks in England, though masks have been recommended.In Scotland masks have been required in public indoor spaces and on public transport, as well as in schools for staff and secondary pupils for some months.Swayne is one of a handful of ‘libertarian’ Conservative MPs angry at face coverings being made compulsory in England in some settings.In October, UK health officials said: “The current evidence on face coverings suggests that all types of face coverings are, to some extent, effective in reducing transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in both healthcare and community settings.”
