MacShane's "Disgraceful" Slurred Heckles

Which loud mouthed heckler found themselves on the wrong end of the Deputy Speaker Alan Haselhurst late into last night’s late sitting?

“I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman. There are certain right Hon. and Hon. Members who are not serving the dignity of the House particularly well at the present time. At all times we should discuss things in a calm and reasonable manner, particularly, I suggest to the House, a subject of this nature.”

You would think while discussing rape and the sensitive circumstances surrounding it, that Members would be able to contain themselves from jeering and interrupting from the back benches, but given it was a late sitting just before midnight it seems one member may have enjoyed the pre-debate refreshments a little too much. Judge  for yourself here (from about 23.15). The increasingly irate Deputy Speaker had to wade in again, this time with more of a warning to the obvious frothing, almost slurring, culprit – Labour’s rent-a-thug Denis MacShane:

“Order. The Right Hon. Member for Rotherham is behaving disgracefully and not assisting a debate of this kind. Now, he really has enough experience of this House, as a Minister and as a Back Bencher, to realise that what he is doing is out of tune with how we should conduct our business in this House. I hope that I will not hear from him again.”

A sentiment Guido agrees with wholly.

Boris in The Telegraph on May…

“… it was certainly a serious mistake in 2015 for the Home Office to order a move away from stop and search.”
