Need for an end for childish ways in parliament
So John Bercow was elected speaker and immediately the talk is how Tory MPs hate him and want to get rid of him. We hear he has to perform or he will be out! How ridiculous. Whatever the speaker, the reforms are down to MPs. It does strike me that the pension package and other benefits for the speaker are amazing - perhaps this should be the first thing Mr Bercow changes?
