Dawn Baker, a member of the Labour Party said she was expelled from her seat in the House of Commons yesterday after calling the Prime Minister Boris Johnson a liar.
The drama started after it was announced that in come September, a vaccine passport would be mandatory to get into nightclubs, which was never previously prepositioned or enforced before July 19. And it worthy to note that under the country’s parliamentary rules, an MP cannot accuse other MPs of lying in the House of Commons.
Well, Butler called Johnson a liar. When asked to withdraw her statements, she decided to stand her ground regarding her claims about Johnson and was ordered to leave the Commons.
Butler said: “Poor people in this country have paid with their lives because the Prime Minister spent the last 18 months misleading this house and the country.”
And in response to Butler’s claims, former Conservative minister Gavin Barwell exclaimed: “In general, I’m all for politicians being authentic, but there’s enough poison in our politics as it is, and we should resist a descent to the name-calling that is common in some other countries.”
Butler concluded: “At the end of the day, the Prime Minister has lied to this House time and time again, and it’s funny that we get in trouble in this place for calling out the lie, rather than the person lying.”
