Bercow Declares War on Trump

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwJCyld4ac0

John Bercow tells the Commons he “strongly opposes” inviting President Trump to address parliament during his state visit. Applause for the Speaker from the Nats and praise from Dennis Skinner. Sure the President will react to this provocation in a calm, measured manner…

UPDATE: Nigel Farage responds to Guido: “For Speaker Bercow to uphold our finest parliamentary traditions, he should be neutral.”

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
