Speaker John Bercow facing new outburst claims

If he had been an MP I suppose he would have been sacked soon enough but as he is the Speaker he gets away with such things. It seems that even among them there are those who can get away with things one law for them and then another law for the rest of them perhaps.

Cymro: an MP can't be sacked.

The list of JB's goofs grows. Almost as long as Boris Johnson's.

Just shows he is human.

Bercow is playing with fire. Leadsom snuffed out 'little big man' Michael Fallon with the minimum of fuss.

I'm no fan of Mr Speaker, but as I understand it tbs was a private conversation.

Which one of us has never used such a term as "Stupid woman (man, boy girl, dog)," in a private conversation?

The whole thing is getting ridiculous.

Nicely understated by JB.

I'm sure Andrea Leadsom is well capable of wiping the floor with him.
