Scuffles, Singing And Cries Of “Shame” As Parliament Is Suspended

Parliament was officially suspended, or prorogued, in the early hours of Tuesday as opposition MPs held up signs reading "Silenced".

Some tried to prevent Speaker of the House John Bercow from leaving his chair, which makes the prorogation official.

Following the scuffles, shouts of "Shame on you" filled the House as Conservative MPs escorted Bercow to the House of Lords.

Opposition MPs feel the suspension is a tactic by the Prime Minister to finalise Brexit on 31 October with or without a deal.

Parliament reconvenes on 14 October.
