30th January 2017
By Peter Chapman

Mid-Sussex MP Nicholas Soames is once again in the headlines. This time for barking like a dog at a female MP during a debate in the house.

SNP member Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh MP complained that Soames made 'Woofing Noises' at her during the debate about US President Donald Trump and his travel ban on Muslims - a session in which the government was accused of walking "hand-in-hand” with a “fascist”. '

Speaker of the house John Bercow, called upon Soames to explain himself....

Soames said:
“I thought that in her question to the Foreign Secretary, she snapped at him a bit at the end, so I offered her a friendly canine salute in return.

"No offence was intended, and I apologise to the honourable lady if she was."

John Bercow said:
"The phrase ‘woof woof is “not in order.. it is discourteous and that expression should not be used.”


Spread the word, once again Mid Sussex MP Nicholas Soames has needed to apologise for being offensive
