Private Eye’s Bercow Bashing Two Weeks Out of Date

Lord Gnome is clearly a fan of this organ’s new feature, Speaker Watch. This week, Private Eye’s Gavel Basher takes a look at the recent bad behaviour of John Bercow, don’tchaluvim?, beginning with news of the failed attempt by Bercow, ain’tyasickofhim, to try to get his pal Julian Lewis the Defence Select Committee chair job. Shome mishtake, shurely, since this was something Guido reported two weeks ago (They’ve done this already, Ed).

The Eye go on, noting Bercow’s tactic of repeatedly calling Lewis to ask questions in the House to let him plug his credentials, despite his name not being on the order paper. Once again, Guido pointed this out two weeks ago (Get on with it, Ed):

Finally, the Eye brings you news of Bercow’s ill treatment of the recently departed Clerk of the House. News that appeared on Guido a month ago (You’re fired, Ed):
