John Bercow’s Office : Rumours Absolutely Untrue

Guido called and got an “absolutely untrue” response from John Bercow’s office about rumours that he will cross the floor tomorrow. Of course if you were about to cross the floor you would hardly broadcast it…

Guido and the Monkey interviewed Bercow for one of our infamous pubcasts last year and he was effusive in praise of Dave, and damning of Gordon. Relevant is his total avowal of any interest in any other party than the Tories. Hear the interview here.

UPDATE : Some are pointing to this speech last week by Bercow, formerly an avowed Euro-sceptic, with particular interest.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
