I just love how he turned that attack on him about his wife's Anti Brexit car sticker around on that jackass like a boss.

It's not totally unheard of for a man to become _more_ liberal and _less_ tribal as he matures. You will be missed, Mr. Bercow.

John Bercow is the legend. He kept peace in the House of Commons.
Everyone loves him.

when he became the story it was when he explained to the public how the process works. As an outside observer, in canada, this is clear. and his clarity from the chair is welcome as someone in a Westminster style democracy

I feel bad for him. He was cool, and he tried to mediate the best he could in the commons, and was disrespected to the concept of his job. So what if he accidentally called someone a cow. It has to be nerve wracking to deal with incompetence because the politicians are not listening or too divisive. Yelling gets you no where.

What a legend! Get martin freeman to play him in a biopic!

Johnson it the last Horcrux of Cromwell, the man has already shut out the peoples representatives at Westminster, if HM Queen Elizabeth II passes away during prorogation can you imagine the complexity of a Kings Speech? A coronation with a program by a minority government without a mandate to govern. Either way with Bercow out, the farce deepens.
