Managed to annoy the government for the final time by ensuring that this parliament elects his replacement.

Best news we've had in a while. Pompous little ass, although my best friend lives in Buckingham & says Bercow is actually a decent local MP.

Note the ‘impartial’ Speaker’s applause from one side of the house. Very telling.

Started off well but then became a caricature of himself.

Would have been a vintage Spitting Image character or mysteriously murdered in a Dickens novel.

Doesn't really work like that in the Commons tho does it. Michael Martin was a rubbish Speaker because he struggled to control the house. Mrs Boothroyd on the other hand...

Spitting Image. I wonder why it disappeared.

Given those bodies only came into being due to political issues a century and more in the past, it's not surprising they eventually dissolve and change under the strains of a new one.

I shared a few drinks and couple of hours of frank discussion with him a few of months ago and he is a genuinely nice person.

Principled, honest and frankly probably too open for his own good. He has some tales to tell thats for sure!
