    But Did Berk Bercow ANSWER The Question? 

    However unfashionable it might be, I believe you are quite right – and by the same token, it is quite wrong to expect the voters to have to answer the same question a second time.”

    That was a Tory MP responding to the slimy little Speaker yesterday, when The Berk ruled that the Brexit bill had been voted on once so it could not be put to another vote again.

    No info on what, if any, answer The Berk made!

    Fascinating Historical Footnotes! 

    Although Abe Lincoln is an American hero, his words, quoted below, ought to strike a chord in patriotic British hearts…



    …in the light of the inclination towards treason among many Europhiliac parliamentarians.

    “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government…

      He’s such an insignificant little man.
      So I would ignore the ‘rack’ option, since he might welcome being stretched a little taller!

      We could make him the British entry in the World Dwarf Throwing Contest, to be held in Dover!
      Extra points if his thrower could hurl him to the other side of the Channel!
      The fact that the left hate dwarf-throwing contests ( as much as the dwarfs who get loads of money love them) adds to the attraction.

    An Odd Canadian Custom… 

    Jagmeet Singh, the Canadian Socialist, has a rather cavalier attitude to the electorate, esp. the voters in British Columbia whom he will tolerate as neighbours only if they vote for him,

    We’ll learn in a few hours if the Burnaby folks appreciate his carpet-bagging condescension, but whilst reading about the by-election I noticed that the Canadian Green Party had chosen not to join in the fight – yet all other parties are battling hard.

    The Greens’ Elizabeth May excused the opting out by invoking something called the “leader’s courtesy.”

    “The leader’s courtesy is a longstanding Canadian parliamentary tradition that facilitates a newly elected party leader’s entry to the legislature by allowing him or her to contest a byelection unopposed…”

    I have not lived in Canada for many years and while I keep up with big issues there, I was unaware of that ‘tradition.’

    It seems to me deplorable, as indefensible as that which till recently obtained in the UK, whereby the Speaker was not opposed in parliamentary elections.

    Nobody should enter parliament unopposed.

    In Britain these days, the Speaker has discarded all pretence of impartiality, Bercow’s blatant Europhiliac partisanship known to all…

    Bercow’s Bad, But May’s Enforcers Are Evil! 

    …. so one hopes he will be opposed next time round, and not only by minor parties as has happened in the past.

    As for the dodgy Singh in Burnaby, he may or may not win, but if he does, surely he will feel he earned his win because he had to fight for it.

      It was never a good thing, giving high-ups a free pass into parliament.

      Arnold, you are so right, why should any party leader get a gift of a seat instead of having to fight for it.
      It insults the voters not to give them a choice who their MP is to be.
      Another reason people have had enough of the old parties and a good reason to try a new one.
      The PPC for me from now on.

    Bercow’s Bad, But May’s Enforcers Are Evil! 


    When a position of power has existed for centuries, it’s hard to single out one holder of that position as the worst ever.

    But the smarmy little specimen who is currently Speaker of the House of Commons is surely in the running, John Bercow, whom I met more than once in my years in the UK.

    What was he then, a champion dissimulator or a worm innately programmed for turning?

    He used to talk the patriot talk but when he had crawled the slippery slope to Westminster, he cast off all trace of conservative values.

    Turning his back on his past, he embraced all the worst elements in the realm, not least the pervert lobby, whose top demand, that queer sensitivities take priority over religious liberty, Bercow was delighted to endorse.  https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/07/05/speaker-john-bercow-religious-freedom/

    Few Speakers of the House of Commons have shown such shameless disregard for the position’s tradition of impartiality as this notorious turncoat,

    I can remember him in the 1980s, sporting longish hair and patriotic pronouncements, an arch-conservative young fellow indeed.

    Alas, patriotism and conservatism were not then, any more than now, twin keys to political advancement.

    Even so, of course it’s a lot more than his emulation of the Vicar of Bray that leads people to abhor the little slug, but…



    ….his blatant disregard for the obligation of a Speaker to be non-partisan, the most notorious example being his rabid pro-Brussels bigotry.

    John Bercow does not speak for Britain, just for his own monstrous ego 



    All or even some of what’s written above ought to have been reason enough to turf the little squirt out of his ornate chair  – and the luxurious lodgings the Speaker gets for free.

    But instead he’s under pressure to quit because of a scandalous situation in which, over a period of years, women have been subjected to repeated molestation ( not by him) on parliamentary premises.

    The BBC report covers the story quite adequately

    What caught my attention, though, was the light it sheds on the sleazy nature of the system by which Party Whips force MPs to vote against their principles.

    In the climate of recriminations and counter-recriminations, a source in Parliament blamed government whips – in both main parties – for pressing to limit the range of admissible complaints in the past.

    “They wanted to use the information privately to help control their MPs.’

    Well ain’t that sweet?

    Can we call it blackmail?

    Or does that word only apply to demanding money with menaces, rather than voting as ordered to avoid exposure?

    What about perversion of democracy?


    Image result for blackmail is a crime

    Is there nothing in parliamentary rules that prohibits coercion of MPs by threats?

    And who appoints these bottom-feeding scoundrels called whips?



    You know who!

    Theresa the Traitrix, whose whips, even as you read this, will be using the whatever amoral intimidatory tactics they can dredge up from their swamp of secret sins, to get her Tory MPs to ditch their duty to the British people and instead endorse her betrayal of Brexit.

      I remember him too from the old days when there were meetings in the Commons committee rooms and he was even more conservative than I was, or seemed to be. I am fairly sure I remember you from those meetings too.
      The anti-Brexit people are desperately trying to delay his resignation because they know they have him as a useful ally.
      The whips have always been unscrupulous in their methods. I hate to think how low they will go to serve their Mistress May.

      Bercow has that look about him, not somebody I would want on my side If I was in trouble.
      All those women that took jobs in parliament and thought it would be a safe place, he wasn’t on their side when they found themselves in trouble either.
      He has a last chance to do something worthwhile with his life and that means resign.
