Bercow elected Speaker of Commons

Not a very economic story I know, but still, what a disgrace. The Labour party, vote for the candidate the Tories don't want. What a tribal bunch.

To make it worse it does not even seem to me that Bercow will do much other than pander to his own ego. If he wanted to do that he should have started a blog.

Guido called it right and has won a few hundered quid...I prefer African Eagle Resources for my punting money this week.

At least it wasn't Beckett.
I couldn't bear to have to watch both the horse and the trough at the same time.

Beckett would have been a good short, surely she was never a real runner!

Don't despair CU...this is great news!

Let's look at this in terms of the Labour party being SEEN to do what you have said, even by the average thicko Labour voter, or someone who is thinking of voting for them.

They are further damaged!

Not only that but Bercow has got to be better than that horse faced harridan Beckett, and he may be egotistical, but if he is half as partisan as Martin the Tories can't complain.

All in all, a bit of a result in my most very humble opinion.

If any question, why Bercow ?
Tell them, 'twas Labour's final throw

It will probably go the same way again as the London mayoral deputies.
