  • "Well done John, you could not have done more than you have over many years on this project. I am glad that you removed the Mace from its location meaning Parliament was temporarily out of session. I hope your suspension does not lead to any further action.....and where were all your supporters both in the Labour Party and especially the opposition who apparently (unless it was just spin) are against the project and will cancel it if elected.

    Enjoy your 5 days away from London and use at least a couple of the days to have rest."

MP feels 'betrayed by his government'

First published in News

JOHN Randall, MP for Uxbridge has spoken out over todays events in the House of Commons.

He was speaking after Labour MP for Hayes, John McDonnell, was removed from the House of Commons during a statement on Heathrow by transport secretary Geoff Hoon.

Mr McDonnell left his seat and grabbed the mace, putting it down on an empty bench and shouting: "It's a disgrace to the democracy of this country."

Mr Randall told the Hillingdon Times: "I can fully understand why he resorted to such desperate action, because of the frustration over the way the secretary of state was taking questions."

He added: "John McDonnell feels utterly betrayed by his Government."
