At yesterday’s Prime Minister’s Questions, criminal barrister-turned-MP Michael Ellis heckled Ed Miliband so loudly that he got told off by the Speaker.

Ellis, who is listed as non-practising in the most recent register of members’ financial interests having previously worked at Clarendon Chambers, was told: “Mr Ellis, you are a distinguished practising barrister, you wouldn’t have behaved like that in the courts, don’t behave like that in this chamber. Calm yourself and be quiet. Learn it man!”
