Using a rare parliamentary device, he called for a "private sitting" of Parliament, which would have removed the public from the chamber's gallery. As a result, John Bercow ordered him to leave the House of Commons.
He said: "What they did was put a programme motion in place to try and force the opposition parties not to vote and I'm not sure that's very democratic".
As Mr Blackford rose again to applause from some of his SNP colleagues, the Speaker shouted: "Order". "Resume your seat", Bercow yelled repeatedly, before demanding that Blackford be thrown out. His fellow MPs then followed him out of the chamber.

Relations between the Scottish and United Kingdom governments have reached a new low as furious SNP leaders threatened to withdraw their cooperation with Westminster, accusing Conservatives there of forcing through a Brexit "power grab" by the backdoor. "The people of Scotland will not be disrespected by this Parliament".

He added: "Disappointed, if not surprised, that if they really felt so strongly about it, they chose a stunt over holding the Government to account".
He used the parliamentary procedure to ensure the will of the Scottish Parliament is respected and that Brexit legislation pauses until the Scottish Parliament's motion is considered as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. The Scottish government claims this could prevent it from passing its own laws in these areas for seven years.
