Order, Order!

So John Bercow is the new Speaker of the House of Commons - good luck to him. It is a big job for anyone to do and I wish him well.

One thing does spring to mind though; with the secreat ballot we shall never really know what the party splits were for Bercow and for Sir George Young.

Personally I had supported Hampshire MP Young since the beginning and was very pleased at his strong showing; but now the Commons must unite behind Bercow and make the change which is needed happen.

Obvious why Labour backed him...because he is more Labour than Conservative. Seeing an interview of him tonight on ITN demonstrates what a snide, stuck-up person he really is. Still, hopefully he will be gone by next years election.
