  • Well that wasn’t as close as most seemed to be predicting

  • nice speech by Cleggas well. Congrats to the 157th Speaker of the HoC.

  • I will probabley get in the neck for this but I do like the tradition of the Royal Approbation.

  • Does anyone else feel that the Nadine Dorries / Tory whining has started a bit soon? I know little about Bercow, but surely anyone deserves a chance, at least a few months in a job, before people start their moaning.

    Worse still, the moaning and bitching paints an awful impression of the Commons to the public at a time when the public already hate politicians.

  • Mark – the complaining didn`t start too early. Ber-cow has been one of the biggest expense claimers (hardly then a reformer), he is vain and he has no loyalty. Other than that he is a great bloke!

    There are hints about what the Tories would like to do in the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail and from DC at PMQ.
