WATCH: Bercow Denies He is “Preoccupied” By Guido

Referring to the tape published by Guido this morning disproving Rachel Reeves’ claim not to have said she wants “all benefits” to be “universal”, Tory MP Mark Harper has raised a Point of Order accusing her of misleading the House. The Speaker responded by trying to have a little dig at Guido, which then spectacularly backfired:

JB: “I am bound to say for my own part that I don’t spend any time browsing on websites, it’s not something with which I am in any way preoccupied…”

Tory MP heckles from sedentary position: “Very wise…”

HUGE LAUGHS FROM TORY BENCHES

JB: “It probably is very wise. Such matters are of no interest to me, but I am grateful to the Honourable Gentleman and I note his nocturnal habits.”

The truth betrayed by the narrowing of his eyes and the forced laugh. Guido is glad to hear Speaker Watch is hurting…

UPDATE: Guido understands the Tory heckler in question was Michael Ellis.
