Mikey Smith, the Mirror’s politics correspondent, tweeted that Labour MP’s looked “confused” at the accusations as they didn’t appear to hear the insult.

“It’s possible someone did call Robert Buckland a traitor from across the chamber, but I didn’t hear it, and from the confused look on the faces of a lot of Labour MPs, neither did they,” he tweeted.

Last month, Boris Johnson was accused by a Labour MP of “inciting hatred” towards politicians with his use of language over Brexit.

Paula Sherriff said the Prime Minister’s use of words like “surrender” and “betrayal” to describe opponents of a no-deal Brexit was the same language used in abuse and death threats to MPs like Jo Cox.

“I believe the Prime Minister is inciting hatred towards MPs,” she told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme.

“We’re not weak, but when you have constant abuse every single day of your life … it’s bound to have an impact on what you do on a day to day basis.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also criticised Mr Johnson for dismissing pleas from Labour MPs to stop using inflammatory language.

“The prime minister’s language and demeanour yesterday was nothing short of disgraceful,” the Labour leader said.

“Three years ago our colleague Jo Cox was murdered by a far-right activist shouting: ‘Britain First. This is for Britain.’

“The language that politicians use matters, it has real consequences.

“To dismiss concerns from honourable members about the death threats they receive, and to dismiss concerns that the language used by the prime minister is being repeated in those death threats, is reprehensible.”
