EXTRAORDINARY scenes in PARLIAMENT as MP for Peacehaven tries to stop speaker John Bercow leaving his chair
Parliament was witness to some extraordinary scenes yesterday as it was suspended until October 5th, Speaker John Bercow had recently announced that he would be standing down from his role, and as he was due to walk from his chair in the closing ceremony MP for Kemptown & Peacehaven Lloyd Russell-Moye appeared to be trying to obstruct the process.
MP Clive Lewis tweeted, ''Tonight in the chamber @LoveSocialism Labour and Green MPs symbolically opposed the prorogation of Parliament. It was based on the 1629 event, where MPs pinned the Speaker to his seat in an attempt to prevent the prorogation of Parliament.''
Mr Russell-Moye was also part of a protest prior to that where several MPs, including MP for Brighton Pavillion Caroline Lucas held up cards with the word ''SILENCED'' and shouted ''Shame on you'' showing their disagreement regarding the government's decision to prorogue parliament for an unusually lengthy period whilst the uncertainty of Brexit prevails.
