SNP membership has risen by over 5,000 in the 24-hours following a mass-walkout by its MPs in parliament, Sky News has learnt.
SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said she was "right behind" Mr Blackford and accused Westminster of treating Scotland with "contempt".
The SNP has set its sights on sabotaging the Brexit Trade Bill as its Westminster leader warned his MPs are prepared to use further guerrilla tactics to "frustrate" the Government.
Speaking to the BBC immediately after the incident, Mr Blackford said: "Scotland's voice has not been heard, we have had changes to the devolution settlement that were pushed through last night without Scottish MPs voices being heard".
'Under the circumstances, given the disrespect shown I have no option but to ask that this House now sits in private'.
'Proceedings on the EU Withdrawal Bill last night were a democratic outrage and the Scottish Parliament must be respected.
The prime minister's spokesman said: "That sort of stunt effectively means that the SNP members who were down on the order paper to ask the PM questions can't represent their constituents".
'That's undemocratic, that is a slight to the Scottish Parliament and to the people of Scotland'. Yet last night she pressed ahead with a power-grab in direct opposition to Scotland's elected Parliament. This will rightly haunt the Scottish Tories for a generation.
"We hear from the Prime Minister about respecting devolution".
'The Tories haven't won a democratic mandate from the people of Scotland for over 60 years, yet they press on to claw back powers from Holyrood without consent. History will remember this as a defining moment when the UK Parliament chose to reject devolution.
Scottish Conservative MP Kirstene Hair said: 'This rehearsed move just demonstrated that the SNP care more about headlines than actually achieving anything for Scotland.
They think they can do anything to Scotland and get away with it. It is a joke'.
Blackford was repeatedly told to take his seat after he demanded a vote on the House sitting in private, after Theresa May refused to bring forward emergency legislation on her Brexit plans.
The passing of the EU Withdrawal Bill meant powers which were supposed to return to the Scottish Parliament after the United Kingdom leaves the EU would go to Westminster for a period of seven years, a move which SNP MPs broke with the Sewel convention that changes to devolution would not occur without the consent of the Scottish Parliament.
