Labour MP ordered to leave Commons after accusing Johnson of repeatedly lying

Dawn Butler (Brent Central) was told to withdraw from the chamber by temporary deputy speaker Judith Cummins following her remarks in a Commons debate. It is not considered within the boundaries of parliamentary etiquette to call another member a liar.
