British House Speaker To Step Down

British House Speaker To Step Down

Firstly, he would resign from the Labour Party.

Sir Lindsay Hoyle, the Labour MP for Chorley and now the Deputy Speaker, told the Home Affairs Select Committee in March 2017 that Jewish female MPs "face the worst of it" and that he had personally met several to discuss their security.

Seb Whale admitted he was "taken by surprise" at John Bercow's announcement he will stand down but knew "something was afoot" when he discovered Mr Bercow's wife, Sally, was in the Commons.

As the prorogation ceremony began opposition MPs reacted furiously and began chanting "shame on you, shame on you" across the Chamber.

The PM has so far lost all six votes during his leadership.

Mr Johnson is now more than 20 seats short of a majority in Parliament, making effective government extremely hard.

In a fiery chamber, opposition members held up signs bearing the message "silenced" around the speaker's chair, with Brighton MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle appearing to try to hold on to Bercow at the point he was requested to lead MPs to the Lords as part of the prorogation proceedings.

He said it was the longest for decades sparking an outcry from the government benches.

"The relationship between the Parliament and the public is very hard at the moment and I think a really confident, positive voice, speaking about the importance of Parliament with the public, is necessary at this time".

Parliament was later prorogued until October 14.

The prime minister was defeated in the House of Commons for the second time in his attempt to call a snap election in October.

But Bercow has not only enabled parliament to challenge the government's position on Brexit, he has entertained and thrilled us with his oratory and wit.

When Bercow eventually returned to the Commons to confirm the prorogation, only a handful of Conservative MPs remained while the opposition benches were packed.

In the House of Lords, the arcane ceremony got underway.

A sing-off followed with Labour MPs singing Jerusalem while the SNP sang Flower of Scotland.

Ode to Joy, recognised as an European Union anthem, was also hummed by some MPs.

But Boris Johnson is planning to exact revenge on Mr Bercow for his "bias" over Brexit by denying him a seat in the Lords.

"If the House does not so vote, I have concluded that the least disruptive and most democratic course of action would be for me to stand down at the close of business on Thursday, October 31".
