AN SNP MP has described Theresa May’s behaviour as “an absolute riddy” after the Prime Minister tabled a motion and then voted against it.

Mhairi Black used the Scottish slang phrase to accuse the Prime Minister of tabling the motion as a scare tactic to force the European Research Group (ERG) into voting for her deal the previous day.

“It’s an absolute riddy that the Prime Minister tabled tonight’s motion and ended up voting against it,” tweeted Black.

“The entire thing was just another ploy to try and scare the ERG into voting for her deal yesterday.

She added: “An absolute embarrassment.”

May suffered another humiliating defeat yesterday when her so-called revised deal was voted down by 391 votes to 242.

In January MPs voted against her deal by a whopping 230 votes, the biggest defeat ever for a Prime Minister.

Earlier this evening MPs voted for a UK Government motion to rule out a no-deal Brexit by 321 votes to 278. May was one of those to vote against it.
