Aberdeen MP Ross Thomson removed from Commons bar by cops

The MP was reportedly escorted from the Commons bar after police were called to reports of "sexual touching".

The Aberdeen South MP was reported to be involved in the incident on Tuesday evening, according to Guido Fawkes, who said he was escorted out the bar several times before police were called.

Onlookers reported that Thomson was drunk in Strangers' Bar, popular with Westminster staff, and began groping young men who were wearing visitor passes.

Met Police confirmed they were called to a bar in the Commons at around 11pm following "a report of sexual touching" involving three men.

A police spokesperson said: “Officers attended and spoke to the parties involved– three men in their 20s and 30s.

“However, no formal allegations were made to the officers and no arrests were made.”

Thomson was elected in 2017 having previously served as an MSP, one of the few Scottish politicians to support a Brexit vote he is a vocal supporter of Boris Johnson and the right-wing Tory grouping in Westminster.

The gaffee-prone MP was previously branded a "disgrace" after he was accused of "trivialising" Sadam Husseins brutal regime in Iraq.

In a series of Facebook posts, Thomson shared images of him posing on a throne used by Hussein boasting in a caption that he could "channel my inner dictator".

Thomson was also embarrassed after an undercover Channel 4 sting showed the MP a spoof app called “Instantgrammes” that claimed to educate the children making its cocaine in Colombia.

"It’s fair trade!”, an apparent pupil of the school said in a fake promotional video for the app which Thomson fell for.

A spokesman for the Scottish Conservative party said: "We are aware of reports of an incident last night and the matter is being looked into. We have no further comment to make at this stage."

Thomson is yet to respond to requests for comment.
