    MP heckled over weight and his Scottish accent.

    New Scottish Labour MP Hugh Gaffney 'heckled by Tories over weight and accent'.

    A Labour MP has claimed he was subjected to slurs over his weight and Scottish accent during Commons debates.

    Hugh Gaffney, who was elected in June last year, said he had been "heckled something awful" by Tory MPs.

    But the former postal worker said nothing would deter him from "standing up for workers and equality".

    Mr Gaffney said: "When people start attacking your body size then you're winning the argument because they're not going for the policy."

    At first consideration I am sure that many people would think that this is a low thing to do in the Commons chamber, but as Mr Gaffney arrived as an MP wearing his old Parcel Force workshirt he was maybe setting himself up deliberately for some heckling ?

    What do you think ?

    I think that this guy was just asking for it when he went into the commons with a work-shirt on.

    The publicity that he seems to be seeking has worked and now he is known to the whole house.
