SPEAKER WATCH: Bercow Cracks Joke in Ukraine/Gaza Debate

The PM was updating the House on the situation in Ukraine and Gaza, with MPs paying tribute to those who lost their lives and discussing what Britain’s response should be.

Enter stage left, John Bercow. Carrying a tin ear.

The Speaker interrupted the House’s discussion about Hamas with a joke about Cameron playing tennis:

Another black mark. 

UPDATE: A Westminster wag points out that Bercow has a book out soon on tennis.

    Evil fuckers, the lot of them !

    The court of public opinion says:

    Poison dwarf

  4. 4
    Final Solution says:

    Funny how there’s no mention here of the Deputy Speaker of the Knesset who’s called for a Final Solution to Palestinians. Or the Knesset member who said every last Palestinian should be killed.

  5. 5
    Unlucky Alf says:

    He really is a c’unt. Typical lefty.

  6. 6
    Wah wah pedal says:

    I never cease to be underwhelmed and disappointed by that oik Bercow.

  7. 7
    The Truth leaks out says:

    While there may have been looting, and combat conditions that made it hard for officials (though not journalists, it seems), to reach the site, it seems there has been more cooperation than Kiev maybe realised. Local police and emergency workers, it transpires, worked through the night under OSCE supervision to carry bodies to refrigerated trucks; last night, more than two-thirds of the 298 had been recovered. The black boxes are in the regional centre, Donetsk, waiting for investigators to collect them. Far from being kept away, investigators were asked, when they arrived, ‘where were you?’.

    Little Johnny B13COW says:

    The public have written to me and said they dislike intensely the braying and shouting which has become the hallmark of Prime Minister’s Questions every week but they all simply love my pathetic attempts at schoolboy humour and put-downs of the Tories.

    Yet the Dozy Dormouse’s responses to hand-wringing events outside the perimeter of the UK should be satirized mercilessly, because they absolutely deserve it, don’t you think?

  15. 15
    Busby Barclay says:

    Bercow is actually Ukrainian for Twat

  16. 16

    it’s probably having 1,500 rockets fired at them that pisses them off.

    On that logic, Britain should have wiped out the whole of Northern Ireland in retaliation for IRA attacks on the mainland.

    This “public” must be a figment of bi-polar one-dimensional imagination as every member of the public I speak to either do not know of you, or know you as a total cretin.

    One very obvious difference. says:

    You accept that Hamas are terrorists then.
    The Northern Irish are still UK citizens and the UK government was correct not to want to inflict casualties on their own innocent citizens whilst chasing a handful of murderous republicans. People in Gaza are not Israeli citizens so Israel have a lot less qualms about going after murderous Hamas types if the collateral damage are hostile foreigners.

    Sally Bercow says:

    My little one needs a jolly good spanking. And if he behaves himself he’s going to get it. *excitedface*

  32. 32
    Final Solution says:

    Yes, I do agree Hamas are terrorists. I don’t accept all Palestinians are terrorists. I’d agree with your general point except that Israel is illegally occupying land it has no right to. If you were to follow your logic of not being so concerned about foreigners in contrast to the Northern Ireland situation, you may remember a lot of funding for the IRA came from America. Did we launch strikes on the homes of Americans who were funding the IRA and bomb their hospitals?

    Interesting debate on the Spectator site:


    “Typical lefty resentful of American freedom and success, always wanting to ignore the crimes of others as if America is the worst country in the world instead of the best (or one of the best). I don’t talk to America-haters, as I said below. Don’t address me again.”

    So, as far as “Freedom” is concerned, the US can do no wrong. Sadly for the NSA, many of us Brits can think for ourselves, and are willing to question the on-going anti-Russian BS. For, unlike our MSM and the Washington neo-cons banging the war drums, many of us reject a new Cold War. For the UK, the price is just to high.

    That said, it looks like having hi-tec fight-bombers and Modern Main Battle Tanks attacking a relatively defence-less people is finally pissing-off the whole world. And yet, while Israel have always had their Uncle Sam to protect them – is there not limits to what the US is willing to put up with?

    It's not difficult to understand says:

    If Hamas want to start a fight with a far superior military power, then they’ll get clobbered. Stop fireing rockets and suicide bombings and they will have peace, if not, the Israelis will use all the methods at their disposal to stop them. If Hamas want to use human shields of Palestinians then they’ll be collaterall damage. The Isrealis do everything to protect their citizens, Hamas encourage the deaths of Palestinians because it makes for great propaganda. Whose worse?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
