But, following a question about the UK's continued 'special relationship' with the US, under Donald Trump, the President-elect, Bercow was forced to intervene again, bellowing at MPs to restore order and telling SNP MP Martin Docherty-Hughes: "You're in a very emotional condition...try to recover your composure man!"
For Pagefield, Corbyn was the clear winner of today's session.
