Speaker's Spending Spin

Despite turning his back on the Tories and slamming Dave in the leadership election, suggesting that the combination of “Eton, hunting, shooting and lunch at Whites” made him the wrong man for the job, the embattled Speaker has resorted to plastering images of his old leader all over his election material. He also uses Tory fonts. What would Sally say?

Worse than that though is the blatant spin about his expenses. “In the latest available figures, only 7 MPs claimed less in expenses than John.” While that may well be true for the last quarter, Bercow has been living at the taxpayers additional expense in the Speaker’s  plush grace and favour pad in the Palace of Westminster, which begs the question, why is he claiming anything at all?

And lest we forget, in all the years running up to the current set of figures Bercow has fluctuated between the rank of 1st and 3rd on the troughing scale.

Quote of the Day

Boris in The Telegraph on May…

“… it was certainly a serious mistake in 2015 for the Home Office to order a move away from stop and search.”
