PMQs verdict: The only person silenced this week is Ian Blackford

“We have technical issues with the leader of the SNP so I’m going to have to ask Kirsten Oswald as the deputy leader to stand in,” Sir Lindsay Hoyle told the House of Commons.

Tory MPs erupted in laughter when they learned Blackford would not be able to give the Prime Minister his weekly blasting over Zoom.

But the question on everybody’s lips: was he silent or was he silenced?

Turns out Blackford had been cancelled by nature after high winds left thousands across Skye and the Uists without power.

The Prime Minister couldn’t resist a dig, praising Blackford’s stand-in for her “delightfully concise question”.

We look forward to Mr Blackford telling his authentic truth next week.


He revealed his lack of culinary talents when asked by Conservative Cornwall MP Sheryll Murray how easy it is to make a Brit fish dish.

Canny Johnson made sure he scored an early win at this week’s PMQs, perhaps he knew he was in for a bit of a pasting.

He kicked off the session by walloping Brussels over claims by the European Council president that the UK imposed an “outright ban” on coronavirus vaccine exports.
