The MP for South West St. Catherine, Everald Warmington came under fire from Government MPs in parliament yesterday after he called Youth and Culture Minister, Lisa Hanna a Jezebel.
Jezebel is a biblical character known for immoral behavior and deceit
Tempers flared in Gordon House shortly after former Labour Minister Pearnel Charles asked Minster Ferguson to explain what he meant when he said it gave him great pleasure to announce the minimum wage increase.
Minister Ferguson attempted to defend himself.
Mr. Warmington insisted that Dr. Ferguson was misleading parliament. He was jeered by Minister Hanna.
Warmington responded by calling Hanna, Jezebel.
The controversial Opposition MP came under fire from Government MPs and was instructed by the sitting House Speaker, Lloyd B Smith, to withdraw his comment.
Heated exchanges continued as Mr. Smith struggled to establish order.
