Which politicians have been banned from Parliament?

Opinion

BARON NEWS paper is running an advert in its Sunday edition which asks readers to choose which MPs have been barred from the House of Commons.

The advert, which was posted on Monday and has already been shared widely on social media, says that MPs should not be allowed to enter the House during lunchtime and that the House should be open to the public on the day of the speech of the Speaker of the House.

If a member is banned from entering the House, the advertisement warns that the person must not enter the building until a formal notice of ban has been given by the Speaker.

Baron News is not the only newspaper to run such an ad.

The Sunday Mirror ran a similar advert in February.

MPs have also been banned on the grounds of ‘insulting’ their colleagues.

In July, the Scottish National Party MP for Glasgow South, Stephen Lythgoe, was banned for five weeks after he appeared to criticise another MP.

He was later cleared of any wrongdoing by a committee of the Scottish Parliament.
