UK politics │ Mr Bercow is the new Speaker

22 June 2009

Despite all the speculation and reports to the contrary (see yesterday’s entry UK politics │ Electing new Speaker │ Plot thickens), Mr Bercow has been elected the new Speaker of the House of Commons. He may not be the great unifier or enjoy unqualified support from the Tories, he will have to do his best to clean up the Parliament. We shall see what Mr Bercow can manage.
