Golden Dawn MP ejected from Parl’t for cursing

 

An MP for the ultra-right Golden Dawn party, Panayiotis Iliopoulos, was ejected from a session in Parliament on Friday after the deputy used derogatory language to revile fellow MPs.

Yiannis Dragasakis, a prominent SYRIZA MP and economist who was chairing the session, asked security guards to remove Iliopoulos after the far-right MP remarked that «Mr Alexis is preparing a souped-up question for the prime minister,” he said, adding that the leftist opposition leader was “sleeping the sleep of the just” and dreaming of waking up as prime minister.

Pulled up by Dragasakis for using derogatory language, Iliopoulos went further, condemning fellow MPs as «wretched sell-outs» and «goats.» Iliopoulos left Parliament, cursing all the while, accompanied by the remaining Golden Dawn MP who had been in attendance.
