John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons, stopped a Minister’s answer by calling it “boring”. Bercow’s negative intervention came as Greg Hands, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, was answering a question from Jeremy Quin.

Bercow said:

“Order. Sit down. It is a terrible waste of time—long-winded, boring and unnecessary”.
