‘The prime minister has lied’: Dawn Butler asked to leave Commons chamber

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “‘The prime minister has lied’: Dawn Butler asked to leave Commons chamber” – below is their description.

Labour MP Dawn Butler was asked to leave the Commons chamber after refusing to withdraw accusations that Boris Johnson has lied countlessly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. ‘It’s dangerous to lie in a pandemic’ the MP for Brent said. ‘Poor people in our country have paid with their lives because the prime minister has spent the last 18 months misleading this house and the country over and over again.’ Butler was told to withdraw from the chamber by temporary deputy speaker Judith Cummins following her remarks in a Commons debate. Under parliamentary rules, MPs are not supposed to accuse each other of lying in the chamber.
