Democratic Unionist Party MP, Ian Paisley Jr., has been suspended fro the British House of Commons for 30 sitting days. The suspensions come after the North Antrim MP took two trips to Sri Lanka that were paid for by its government before he then advocated on their behalf. He was found by a parliament watchdog to have broken rules. The chair of the Standards Committee said it was concluded Paisley was guilty of “serious misconduct.” The value of the trips have been put at between 50,000 and 100.000 pounds. The consequences of these actions could have him unseated and there would be a special election called to fill his seat. He could run and if elected would be able to regain his seat again. It was not clear if he could regain his years of service again. He has stated that if it came to that he would fight any such by-election if it came to that.
