David Cameron has had a tough week, as his involvement in the Panama Papers scandal has led to sharp criticism and calls for his resignation. Things got a bit stranger today, as an opposition MP called him “Dodgy Dave,” causing a sustained commotion in the House of Commons before he was removed from the proceedings.
The MP in question is Dennis Skinner. Skinner has been in the Commons since 1970, and is a relic of the pre-Tony Blair Labour Party; he’s a socialist with deep ties to trade unions.
Skinner was given the option of taking back the adjective, but declined to do so, at which point he was removed from the proceedings for the rest of the day.
