Whoever takes over from Bercow need do little to distance themselves from Bercow’s antics.

John Bercow, on a speaking tour in the US, claimed recently that Brexit may take another 20 years to sort out. More nonsense from this silly man. In his speech he claimed that ‘no force on earth’ would stop parliament having the final say about Brexit. While he agreed that the referendum was important, he went on to say that didn’t mean parliament just gave up. He explained that parliament was “taking views on the matter”. More nonsense. He said he thought that even if there was agreement on Brexit there would be debate about the future relationship between the EU and the UK maybe for the next ten or twenty years.  Bercow shames his university – Essex.

Little Bercow’s remarks will likely further inflame his Brexiteer critics. Senior Tory Sir Bernard Jenkin warned that the role of Speaker had become ‘irretrievably radicalised and politicised.’ Tory MP Michael Fabricant said that ‘his bias has brought the office of speaker into disrepute.’

Bercow also cast doubt on Boris Johnson’s claim that we could leave the EU without a deal at the end of October. “Not unless parliament changed the law which I can’t see happening’. More nonsense.

Bercow is the most controversial speaker in living memory – he has finally achieved something in his meandering political career marked by distrust and disloyalty. Furthermore he has convinced Tory MPs during his tenure that he has an anti-Tory bias and Brexiteers that he is equally biased against Brexit. He has never been shy of stating his position resolutely in defiance of all. Now he is about to step down as Speaker the questions are, who will miss him and who will replace him?

To the former, few.
