WATCH: Lansley Burns Bercow

From his little throne, Bercow loves to tick off the government for leaking announcements online or in the press before they are announced in the House. Just two weeks ago he said:

“If something has been announced to the House about its future business, I would consider it courteous for the House to be informed formally of any change before the wider world is. A written statement would usually suffice, if there were not sufficient occasion or urgency to justify a supplementary business statement. I hope you will have heard the statement from the chair, to put it very candidly and bluntly these announcements should be made to the House not by the mechanism of Twitter. I think it’s pretty clear.”

So imagine Andrew Lansley’s delight when he got to make this Point of Order:

Delicious.

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
