Labour MP Dennis Skinner has been thrown out of Parliament for labelling the Prime Minister 'Dodgy Dave' over his personal finances.
The member for Bolsover was asked twice to withdraw the jibe, made during a House of Commons statement on the Panama Papers revelations, by speaker John Bercow.
But Mr Skinner twice declined, leading Mr Bercow to ask Mr Skinner to withdraw from the chamber for the rest of Monday, on the ground of unparliamentary language.
Mr Skinner said: "Does the Prime Minister recall that at the time after he became Prime Minister under the coalition and at the time when he was dividing the nation between strivers and scroungers, I asked him a very important question about the windfall he received when he wrote off the mortgage of the premises in Notting Hill, and I said to him he didn't write off the mortgage of the one taxpayers were helping to pay for at Oxford.
"I didn't receive a proper answer then. Maybe dodgy Dave will answer it now."
Microphones near Mr Skinner were cut off as he tried to continue speaking as Mr Bercow sought to intervene.
Under unparliamentary language rules, no MP is allowed to accuse another member of being dishonorable.
