Addressing an unusually quiet House of Commons on matters relating to Islamic State operations in Syria, Gavin Williams, Britain’s secretary of defence, was heckled by his own iPhone.

While one would have expected to be interrupted from a voice in the opposition benches, the UK MP was interrupted when his microphone picked up the voice assistant saying:

“I found something on the web for Syria’s Syrian democratic forces supported by premonition…”

The UK MP was quick to hit back with typical British humour.

“I do apologise for that. It is very rare that you are heckled by your own mobile phone. On this occasion it is a new Parliamentary convention, without a doubt," said Williams. 

He later took to Twitter saying he would ask his 13-year-old daughter how to use it.
