An SNP MP was forced to apologise to the House of Commons after sweary tirade against the Government.

David Linden was objecting to Home Office minister Chris Philip praising the UK’s approach to asylum seekers and foreign nationals.

The Scottish politician stood up to directly oppose the comments, but broke a major rule of the House of Commons.

Mr Linden said: “I’m sorry, the minister is just talking absolute c**p here.”

Immediately, the Speaker of the House intervened and ordered Mr Linden to withdraw his use of profanity.

The Scottish MP acquiesced, but couldn’t resist adding: “That word you don’t want me to say, I’ll say it again as I withdraw it.”
