MHAIRI Black has called Wednesday's Brexit vote "an absolute riddy" for Prime Minister Theresa May.

The SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South made the comment after MPs defied the Government and dramatically decided to rule out a no-deal withdrawal from the EU in scenes some Tory Brexiteers described as “chaotic”.

Ms Black took to Twitter after the vote and wrote: "It’s an absolute riddy that the Prime Minister tabled tonight’s motion and ended up voting against it. The entire thing was just another ploy to try and scare the ERG into voting for her deal yesterday. An absolute embarrassment."
