SPEAKER of the House of Commons John Bercow was slammed by angry Brits last night after it was revealed he was undermining the British negotiating position with attempts to thwart Brexit.
The egotistical speaker, whose position legally requires strict impartiality, has frequently abused his powers in the House of Commons to delay and frustrate Brexit, whilst also working alongside key remainer MPs against the government but his latest stunt has proven to be one step too far and has angered Brexit voters.
Bercow is supposed to be an impartial “referee” of British politics in the House of Commons – but he angered Brexiteers after entering into negotiations with the EU behind closed doors.
Brexit Party chair Richard Tice took to Twitter in a furious rampage against the Speaker, arguing that the Tory MP has no authority to act on behalf of Mr Johnson.
Mr Tice, referring to David Sassoli, said: “Here in Brussels new President Sassoli admits in the chamber that he has bypassed the British PM and Government and is now in direct discussions with Bercow about Brexit negotiations.
He refused to take my urgent question on what authority they had to have these discussions.” It has also been claimed an option Mr Sassoli has agreed with Mr Bercow is a second EU referendum, sparking fury among Brexiteers.
Within hours, the hashtag #InvestigateBercow was trending on Twitter, with tens of thousands of infuriated leave voters and even many who did not initially support leave-taking to the social media platform to condemn Bercow for treason.
Offline, others have sent letters and emails to the government demanding that a full investigation into the speaker’s widespread “foreign collusion” be held immediately.
The slip-up by the President of the EU (one of five within the Union) has caused further embarrassment for the disgraced politician – who has already stated that he will be standing down before the next General Election.
His impartiality is now undeniably non-existent, and Politicalite is calling for a full investigation into Bercow before he can carry out further attacks on British democracy, and a comprehensive inquiry to be held with a focus on never allowing this brazen abuse of power to happen again.
