John Bercow Joins Labour

 I have to say that, whether John Bercow is right or wrong in his convictions, I fear he has not fully respected the office of Speaker by doing this. It undermines Lindsay Hoyle, the current Speaker, with his neutrality and how it is perceived and the trust given, and breaks the necessary protocol that former Speakers remain non party political and only speak on cross party issues, or on an issue of great national importance. That is what Baroness Boothroyd has done over the past twenty years and I hope John Bercow reflects on that
