'Barry, for goodness sake!': eyes roll and tempers fray as MPs clash over questions

Guardian, 26 Mar 2021
Labour MP Barry Gardiner and Tory MP Neil Parish clashed over question lengths during an environment, food and rural affairs committee meeting.
Gardiner was interrupted as he read out his question on seafood and meat exports to the environment secretary, George Eustice. Parish said: 'Barry, for goodness sake. We are an hour into this. Your questions are too long, Barry.'
The exchange has been shared on social media hundreds of times with many users drawing parallels to the now infamous Handforth parish council meeting that went viral
