MPS REACT TO THE PRIME MINISTER BEING KICKED OUT OF QUESTION TIME

* "It's pretty shameful when the prime minister gets thrown out, the one person who we do need to know keeps his cool in parliament" - Labour leader Andrew Little

* "It's pretty clear that because he was being asked to apologise that he basically lost control of himself in the house and so I think it's on his conscience to decide what he wants to do about that" - Green Party co-leader James Shaw

* "The speaker makes his rules and whatever you make of his rules you're best to take notice of them, but in this case I think the prime minister simply didn't see him (the speaker) stand up and if he had have seen him stand up, he would have sat down because he was warned about it yesterday" - Deputy Prime Minister Bill English

* "Of course the speaker is always right, he is the umpire" - assistant speaker and Labour MP Trevor Mallard

* "I have to say John Key has had a very low record of coming out of the house and I suspect I'm at the higher record" - cabinet minister Nick Smith
