Labour MP In Unspontaneous Protest
This is the moment John McDonnell was suspended from the House of Commons this lunchtime. He was protesting over the Heathrow decision. Watching it you get the feeling that it wasn't entirely spontaneous and that he had decided to do it well in advance. He spoke about his constituents losing their "villages,homes, churches schools and cemeteries." And, it seems, their Member of Parliament.
The BBC has the moment McDonnell grabbed the Mace here.
