Iain Duncan Smith caught 'picking his nose and eating it' during Brexit debate

There is quite a lot going on in British politics right now as MPs have now seized control of the Commons after Boris Johnson lost a vote on Tuesday night that would have paved the way for a no-deal Brexit on October 31.

It remains to be seen what will happen next as there have been talks of extending Brexit to January 31, a general election, taking no-deal completely off the table or a V for Vendetta-style revolution (that last one isn't true).

Either way, Johnson's Brexit strategy now lies completely in tatters and it seems that his fellow Tory MPs are happily sitting there twiddling their thumbs as their world collapses around them.

This was perfectly epitomised on Tuesday evening by Iain Duncan Smith, who was caught by Parliament TV, literally sitting on the backbenches picking a bogey from his nose and then, even more disgustingly, appearing to eat it. Yes, that is a real thing that happened.

There's not much else to say about this other than it is utterly disgusting and something we wouldn't expect of a six-year-old, let alone a 65-year-old Tory MP.

As you can imagine, people on Twitter didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Still, at least we know where we'll be getting our nutrients from when all the food runs out after Brexit.
