What’s Bercow doing to PMQs?

July 7th, 2010

Is his high-handedness making it all a bore?

There’s a fair bit of criticism developing over Speaker Bercow’s “management” of that great parliamentary tradition, PMQs.

His warnings and threaten to sin-bin offending MPs led to what many are saying was one of the dullest ever sessions today.

This guy simply doesn’t get it. He gives the impression of wanting to be the star of the show and his speech last night has diminished him.

Come on John – you are over-doing it and killing a great Westminster tradition.
