'You might be PM but in this House I'M in charge!': Angry Speaker Hoyle slams Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson repeatedly tried to grill Keir Starmer over his past legal work as the pair clashed over sleaze at the weekly session. But Speaker Lindsay Hoyle demanded he stop, insisting it is questions to the Prime Minister rather than to the Opposition leader. 'You might be the PM of the country but in this House I'm in charge,' Sir Lindsay said. Sir Lindsay also warned that the bad-tempered discussion was doing nothing to restore the image of the House after the Owen Paterson debacle earlier this month. Mr Johnson is desperately trying to get back on the front foot by pledging to ban politicians from working as consultants on the side - something that could cost dozens of his own backbenchers significant sums.
