Moment Speaker cuts off Boris Johnson for deliberately 'winding up' SNP MP

Boris Johnson has been cut off mid-sentence after the Speaker accused him of “teasing” and “winding up” the SNP Westminster leader.

Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle stepped in on Wednesday during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) when Johnson addressed the SNP’s Ian Blackford who had called his response over a £20 uplift to Universal Credit “pathetic”.

Blackford had asked the PM to make the increase in benefit made during the pandemic permanent in order to tackle child poverty but Johnson did not commit to that and said the country should be proud of the way the Tories have tried to look after people.
