Dennis Skinner Thrown Out Of Parliament For 'Dodgy Dave' Insult

Dennis Skinner Thrown Out Of Parliament For 'Dodgy Dave' Insult

Veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner was removed from Parliament earlier today for calling the Prime Minister 'Dodgy Dave' and then refusing to withdraw his comment.

During a House of Commons statement on the Panama Papers, the Member of Parliament for Bolsover accused Cameron of not giving a straight answer on how he wrote off his mortgages in Oxfordshire and Notting Hill.

Skinner said: "Does the Prime Minister recall that at the time after he became Prime Minister under the coalition and at the time when he was dividing the nation between strivers and scroungers, I asked him a very important question about the windfall he received when he wrote off the mortgage of the premises in Notting Hill, and I said to him he didn't write off the mortgage of the one taxpayers were helping to pay for at Oxford.

"I didn't receive a proper answer then. Maybe dodgy Dave will answer it now."

The Speaker immediately told the 84-year-old to withdraw the jibe. But instead of retracting the remark, he chose to repeat it.

This is the fifth time the infamous Beast of Bolsover has been sent out of the chamber.
