Some are saying that - but I think that as an amendment it isn't the same - I'm sure Bercow said something along those lines. I think the best chance of a vote at the moment lies with the Kyle-Wilson amendment to any deal.

But the truth is I don't know smiling smiley

When I was in KCL he was always around as a leader of the Federation of Conservative Students and was a right wing libertarian.

He then allegedly met his wife and changed (I remember his reply to the question about having a B*ll*cks to Brexit sticker on his car - he replied "Its my wifes car").

Chaos at James Goddards trial (over the Soubry affair). All his friends shouted at the judge then got into the dock with him. Judge walked out.

Contempt or will they just let it go ?

So, if Bercow is an EU puppet, as suggested above - what does the recent news mean in terms of underhand strategy?

Of course - meaning chief magistrate. Now some yellow vests have invaded the Attorney Generals office shouting "Anna Soubry is a Nazi" - why do they pick on her ?

I think he's just pro parliament and anti government. He hasn't liked the government since they tried to get rid of him the last day of the 2015 parliament and Labour found out just in time and rescued him.

I think it makes good sense. Otherwise TM would present the same over and over again.

It's a bit like being asked every year if I like Brussel Sprouts. The answer is still no.

I think he's correct on the technical point and he has always been pro parliament standing up against the executive. Some previous speakers (Michael Martin, George Thomas) have been rather sycophantic towards the government - this one has always been the opposite even before Brexit.

I think history might have hardened his attitude.

He had another a great argument with Leadsom (which has been ongoing for a while)

messageRe: Brexit View
Posted by JohnL 19 March, 2019 16:27

Oh and the point is sensible - and I've heard when backbench MP's try to do similar they are told they can't - the government (especially the May government) just expects it can do what it wants.

I can't believe they claim they didn't see it coming - even I thought it was a possibility.

The speaker of the house as to remain neutral as johnl said bercow hates this government .but he's showing contempt for the 17 million who voted leave by doing his best to stop brexit because he and his remainer mp mates didn't like the result.what's the point in having elections .while many many people struggle to make ends meat .these leaches have just been given an extra £2000 pay rise on top of their £65000 + wages yet still lie and cheat on their expenses commiting fraud these fu...rs pay for nothing.yet still want more .that's it rant over .

Do you really think that May's Agreement is aligned to the will of the 17m who voted leave?

I don't think Bercow's trying to prevent Leave, just not on the absurd terms May has come up with.

Posted by teddyboy23 19 March, 2019 18:26

Angelina I agree mays agreement is crap.but bercow is picking amendments that suit the remainders is refusing to put forward an amendment that would rule out a second referendum backed by 120+ MPs from all parties .now he's found a rule dating back to 1604 saying MPs can't vote twice for the same proposition on our constitution the speaker .Queen and the cabinet secretary are three main people who must act with absolute integrity .this Muppet is driving around in he's official car with stickers on it saying bollocks to brexit our impartial is that.

Much that I cannot stand Bercow, I don't think it is correct that he is driving around in an official car with anti Brexit stickers on it. It is his wife's car that has the stickers.

I don't think he 'searched' for an old rule (also just because it is old does not mean it is not good law/procedure). Moreover, it is a little known rule only because it has hardly ever needed to be invoked - it's just that in 400 years almost every government has abided by the basic principle underlying the rule. May is an exception to the rule and she should be ashamed of her conduct in relation to her so-called 'deal'.

Maybot to ask for a short extension i.e to the end of June. All this does is move the No Deal cliff edge along, thus no incentive for the DUP/ERG to vote for her deal. Once again she's pandered to the loony brigade instead of putting the country first...

LOL Why is Darren Grimes twitter at the very top of my list every morning (and then I feel obliged to reply).

He was on Sky News paper review today too - but was rather uncontroversial and didn't outdo Joanna and Martin in the throw the remote at the TV reaction.

“In the absence of a deal, seeking such a short, one-off extension would be downright reckless and completely at odds with the position this House adopted only last night.” ~ David Lidington, de facto Deputy PM, six days ago, in the Commons

At the start of the Brexit process is was always thought that it would come down to who blinked first between the EU and the UK. Instead it's now who blinks first between the 2 sides of the Tory party. Up to now May has always cowed to the noise and threats of the ERG types, whilst the moderates have kept relatively silent. If May's request for an extension is indeed a short one, then this will be the last chance for the worm to turn...
