An anti-Brexit car sticker was the subject of a heated debate between a Kent MP and the Speaker of the House in Westminster.
Adam Holloway, who represents Gravesham and voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum, confronted Speaker John Bercow during a discussion on Points of Order in the Commons on Wednesday.
He said: "We have all noticed in recent months a sticker in your car that makes derogatory comments about Brexit.
"This is a serious point about partiality. Have you driven that car with the sticker there?"
However, the Speaker responded by clarifying the label in fact belonged to his wife, saying: "There was a factual error in [Mr Holloway's] opening remarks.
"I am sure it was an inadvertent error, and I mean that most sincerely, but it was a factual error.
"He said that in recent months it had been noticed that there was a sticker in my car.
"That sticker on the subject of Brexit happens to be affixed to, or in the windscreen of, my wife’s car.
"I am sure [Mr Holloway] would not suggest for one moment that a wife is somehow the property or chattel of her husband.
"She is entitled to her views. That sticker is not mine, and that is the end of it."
The discussion came just days ahead of the crucial vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal, which will be put to MPs on Tuesday.
