For when the government formally had declared that they were not interested to continue the debate in the parliament, marched suddenly Labour politician Lloyd Russell-Moyle out on the floor.
Where he grabbed hold of him in the "queen's spell", a gilded sølvsepter, and lifted it over his head, to the deafening outrage from large parts of the assembly.
"Shame you! Shame you!" and "Throw him out!", one could hear the british top politicians yell.
Russell-Moyle was quickly stopped when he tried to leave the saddle with the stake raised high. The leader of the house of commons, John Bercow, demanded immediately that the stake was laid down again, before a female politician took it back from the Russell-Moyle with power.May was alleged to have dressed "the constitution in a selvmordsvest".

With the stick safely in place, the Russell-Moyle ordered to leave the hall. There, he refused to join in, all the way to the Bercow came with the following statements:
- no, No. He must leave the room, if not, he is escorted out. He shall go out.
Here is required, there is probably an explanation.
For it was not to talk about any stake. The aforementioned stake is an important seremonistav, as at several ceremonies in parliament, carried in the front of the procession. During negotiations in the house of commons, as of yesterday, is the stake on the table in front of the leader of the house of commons.
