Speaking for the people; record readers.

I DO not think I have ever felt any sadness about anyone leaving Parliament. However, to see the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, stepping down saddened me greatly.

I have been a Labour supporter all of my life and I don't think I have heard a more eloquent and fairer Speaker than John Bercow. I wish him well for the future and can only hope some of his thoughtfulness and empathy has rubbed off on some of the mediocre people who populate Parliament today.
