David Linden SNP MP was blasted in the House of Commons on Thursday for swearing in the chamber, after he verbally attacked a Home Office Minister.
During a furious debate the SNP MP was forced to withdraw his expletive attack by Sir Lindsey Hoyle the Speaker of the House.
Linden objected to Home Office Minister Chris Philip who was praising Britain’s approach to asylum seekers.
The Scottish SNP MP stood up and blasted Philip who was left visibly shocked by the tirade.
The SNP MP angrily shouted, “I’m sorry, the minister is just talking absolute c*** here.”
Sir Lindsey immediately intervened and ordered his to “withdraw” the C word and his use of profanity.
Linden then stood up and said, “I withdraw the word c***, but I would say it’s absolute nonsense.”
Linden then told the Commons, “He [Philip] 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?”
Philips hit back defending his position, saying, “There is no amount of huffing and puffing that can disguise the fact that we are the only G7 country meeting our 0.7% commitment.
“There is no huffing and puffing that can disguise the fact that we gave 20,000 grants of asylum and protection last year.
“The Honourable Gentleman can shake his head all he likes, but those are the facts.”
