SPEAKER WATCH: Bercow Kneels Before the House

Leonard Cohen on his bankruptcy tour sang whole concerts on one knee, hand extended to the audience. He really needed the money.

So it was with John Bercow yesterday evening. He knelt. He extended his palm to the Commons. “I am in the hands of and ready to be guided by the House.” He really needed the support.

How well he plays that great organ of democracy!

“My responsibility is to hear and heed them,” he said of its members.

They just didn’t have the heart to give the kneeling supplicant a jolly good beating.

That will happen – and it is still more likely to happen than not – today, the day after and next week.

It is still more likely than not he will lose the Speakership.

Jesse Norman asked gently whether he was going to withdraw the letter of appointment. He was told, “It isn’t for me to withdraw a letter but for the panel.”

Is it? Is it for the Panel? Wasn’t the Panel’s function to advise the Speaker? Whose name was on the letter of recommendation – the Panel’s or the Speaker’s?

He misled the House on another point.

Rob Wilson asked whether any legal action was outstanding in the appointment. Good question. Direct. Has an answer that is capable of being falsified. The Speaker gave a false answer. It was, “No.” David Natzler has, by three people’s report, started an action through an Employment Tribunal.

That noodle Nigel Evans asked the wrong question. Would the Speaker keep Carol Mills informed of what was going on?

The question is – how many millions will Ms Mills demand in compensation when Bercow abandons her?

She should ask for five in the hope of getting two.

Saxton Bampfylde would surely advise her that’s what she deserves.

      It looks like the Scots are not content with being cowering wee timorous beasties forever under the English jackboot.

      The YES camp have two trump cards to play which the NO camp have no defence or strategy to challenge.

      1. Only the YES camp can promise no more Tory rule from London, for which a majority of Scots didn’t vote. i.e. (no more Thatcher,Major or Cameron governments).

      2. Whoever wins the next election is going to have to make the most savage cuts in government spending in history, at least 50% over 5 years. Only by voting YES to independence can Scotland avoid those cuts by virtue of having all the oil & whiskey revenue to themselves.
      In fact the Scots can see government spending increase to the level of Norway.

      Dalek Darling and the NO camp have nothing to offer but fear and loathing, they want Scots to betray everything William Wallace and Robert the Bruce fought for.

      So Vote YES vote Freeeedom!

        As imaginative with the numbers as Salmond. The biggest money spinner in UK which supports everywhere else is not NS oil but London. London representing about 15% in terms of population contributes 25% of GDP and tax revenues to the UK. About 3 times the entire output of Scotland.

        Perhaps Scotland think they’ll get a better subsidy off Brussels, but if anyone up there thinks they’ll be better off financially in their little socialist utopia they think Salmond will create for them then they are deluded or ignorant. MacVenezuela beckons.

          But then, London drains the life out of the rest of the UK, sucking up all the talent and investment. The entire economy is run for the benefit of the London financial establishment, with massive subsidies in the form of bail-outs and quantitative easing. Policies in energy pricing, transport and immigration are skewed towards the capital, which the rest of the country is treated as a backyard for the stuff London doesn’t want, such as windfarms and nuclear power stations.

            Witty Moniker; In the 1970’s I was trekking around the USA with a mate from London. At that time he used to get most upset when Americans when mentioning any piece of equipment (Phone, TV, mixer etc) used to say “Do you have them in the UK” He would normally reply by listing the things “We” invented but the US think they did.
            After a few beers I would normally point out that much of what he claimed as “We” invented was in fact the industrial Midlands/North and Scotland but Londoners think they did.
            The wealth of the UK was built on the industrial revolution and exploitation of the empire. The true cost of the bail out of the banks/financial institutions has more than surpassed the gain to the UK economy over the preceding 50 years. In the last 30 years greater London (12% of Nation) has eaten up a disproportionate sum in infrastructure cost (circa 4:1)…but naval gazing Londoners seldom look up and see that.

        With America and Europe in terminal decline it is essential that Britain leaves the EU immediately and gathers together the Commonwealth heads of state in a summit to which the heads of the BRICS nations should also be invited.

        Then the Commonwealth heads of state and BRICS leaders can sign a trade/financial/military pact and ensure an end to the dollar/euro/IMF/World Bank/NATO hegemony.

        Eventually the whole world should get together and isolate the most dangerous, warmongering rogue state on the planet, The USA.

        After a few months grace, to allow all yanks abroad to get their affairs sorted and decide whether to return home or apply for asylum, all trade and travel between the US and the rest of the world should be ended.

      The Tories should bring in 3 new bills to parliament in the run-up to the general election and dare Liebore and the FibDemons to vote them down.

      1. Immediate abolition of the telly tax to ease the cost of living on the poor and squeezed middle.

      2. Freeze the council tax for a further 5 years to ease the cost of living for the poor and squeezed middle (No loop holes allowed by councils, they must by law freeze the council tax).

      3. Bring in a new crime of public sector manslaughter, so that relatives of those abused at Stafford hospital can take legal action (special legal aid fund available) against those responsible and have them jailed.

      If the bills pass then the Tories get all the credit.

      If Liebore/FibDemons vote these bills down then the Tories will have a big stick with which to beat them in the election campaign.

    Unfortunately John, said House has more than a few slates loose. For example:

It’s almost as if government is making no direct reference to reality, as some unchallenged delusion is serving in its stead. Very similar in speculative nature to a different but also unquestioned illusion, which the ‘minds’ at ISIS are referring to. Surely leaders should be invited to publish the infallible methodology they use to test their personal ideological ideas. So that all skeptical spectators may use that, to check their own ‘erroneous’ notions. For if politicians continue to insist on shooting themselves in the feet, the public may soon elect to let them carry themselves.

    Widening the topic a little …..in my view …. under the auspices of more accountability the repsonsibilities of the speaker have long actually been being lessened… while perversely no one is taking them on. In other words I believe that generally on a large number of issues people are just not being held to account who used to be held to account by the Speaker because part of his job is now done by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.
    So why does he still get the same salary?

    For example when I wrote to the Speaker earlier this year about Gavin Barwell’s alleged misuse of House of Commons stationary I recieved the reply

    “The Speaker has asked me to explain that he has no responsibility for the actions of Members outside the Chamber of the House of Commons. Though he may set down precedents for conventions and courtesies (as you note that previous Speakers have done), the need for him to remain politically impartial precludes him from getting involved in individual cases such as the one that you raise.”

    In other words while Michael Martin clearly personally complained about stationary misuse by members (Geraint Davies) on a number of occasions the Speaker now does not see this as part of his job but that of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.

    “It is unequivocally the role of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards to investigate and decide whether there has been improper use of House of Commons stationery (see section 13, page 3:2011-FOI-office-stationery-rules-F11-295.pdf). If you disagree with the decision made by the PCfS, the Speaker suggests that you contact the Committee on Standards who may decide to look into the matter themselves. ”

    In other words the sphere of reponsibilites of the Speaker outside the chamber but inside the House seems to actually be getting ever smaller and smaller … all be this invisible to the naked eye. On the plus side you could say that Speaker is getting much less powerful which would be fine if that the power was actually being weilded by someone else. But is it? Where is the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards in this? After all they would seem to be the people incharge of “everything outside the chamber” these days?

    Conspicuously silent?
