Wise words

... from the Tedious Old Godbotherer:

Democracy is a curious thing – it tends to deliver precisely what the people deserve. And maybe the electorate of the House of Commons deserves John Bercow. He tries so hard to be all things to all people, yet he is everything and nothing. He is convicted of nothing strongly, except perhaps the righteousness of his own conviction, the uprightness of his amorality and the universal salvation which is to be found in his gospel. At one time or another he has held the whole spectrum of political thought in his hands, and yet it has all slipped through.

A more damning indictment of the people of this cuntry I cannot imagine.

Not sure the people had anything to do with Bercow being elected.

Well ... look at the depth and quality of the options available. Would any of them made an actual "good" speaker?

He won't last much past the next General Election, too many Tories against him, NuLab only backed him to frustrate the opposition

Funnily enough your third contributor's surname is an accurate description of Bercow. Since he was cuntstruck by the socialist who became his wife, Bercow has been on a journey to the left which has ended in the success of his election to Speaker: voted in by his comrades in government against the apparently almost unanimous opposition of . . the opposition.

The story that Mrs B was a member of the Conservative party as a student may be true (but so what - look how un-conservative the BBC's Nick Robinson is despite a background in Conservative politics). Unfortunately for the narrative that Bercow is not cuntstruck by his wife and her politics, she joined Labour in 1997.
