House of Commons Erupts After Labour MP Takes Ceremonial Mace

The United Kingdom’s House of Commons erupted after Labour MP, Lloyd Russell-Moyle, took the chamber’s ceremonial mace in a symbolic protest during debate about an impending Brexit vote on December 10.The mace, which represents the authority of the monarchy and must be present during Parliamentary proceedings, was removed from Russell-Moyle as he moved towards the exit.

The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, immediately suspended the Labour member for the remainder of the day’s session.Members have occasionally removed the mace in acts of protest, causing momentary cessation of debate.

Most recently, in 2009, Labour member John McDonnell was suspended from Parliament for taking the mace during a debate about the expansion of the Heathrow airport.Footage from the Parliament recording of the day’s proceeding shows members jeering as Russell-Moyle picks up the ceremonial weapon and the House Speaker immediately implementing a suspension.
