House of Commons members were left in stitches following an SNP MP’s speech. Scottish nationalist Pete Wishart railed against the Government’s pro-Brexit agenda and demanded Scottish independence once again. However, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove, was quick to dismiss claims from the SNP politician.
Mr Wishart had told the Commons: “Today is a day where all the Brexit chickens come home to roost.
“Only of course they won’t because they’ll be sitting in a 7000-strong lorry queue on a Kent motorway for two days waiting to be dispatched.
“I remember the days of the easiest deal in history, having our cake and eating it while observing the sunny uplands. But even the minister himself told us that we hold all the cards.
“Well it seems the only card we’re holding is the Joker with his spitting image all over the front of it.”
He continued: “What I don’t understand is why does he continue with this charade of seeking a deal when we know it’s the no deal that they all want?
“The Scottish people are also scenario-planning. We are planning a best case scenario when we get out of the rogue state UK before the worst of this Brexit madness consumes our beautiful nation.
“His European counterparts must be looking forward to the next round of talks with all the relish of a vegan being served a platter of chlorinated chicken.
“We’re told that the talks are at a delicate stage. They’re so delicate that the EU are close to telling the UK to get stuffed, and you have to say you can see their point.”
The MP added: “They’re having to deal with a UK that’s prepared to tear up the withdrawal agreement that was oven-ready and the greatest deal ever just a few months ago, and in the process break international law.
“But there’s one good thing that’s come out of all of this: it’s focused Scottish minds on the type of future we want as a normal European nation.”
Following the end of Mr Wishart’s speech, laughter could be heard from around the Commons.

Mr Gove joked that he didn’t know where the begin with the MP’s statement, sparking even more laughter in the chamber.
The minister shot back: “Those questions were a mixed amount of metaphors the like of which hasn’t been seen before.
“One of the things we’ll be doing is making sure we prioritise day-old chicks and fish and shellfish from Scottish harbours in order to make sure that they reach the fish markets without impediments.
“As we take back control of our waters and access to our marine resources, it enables Scotland to get thousands of new jobs and millions in new investment.
“It is sadly one of the decisions that the Scottish Government have taken that they wish to re-enter the EU, give up access to that bounty and to sell the coastal communities of Scotland short.”
