    They will all say they are impartial, but none will be. Thats how politics work now, on both sides of any pond. Does it not make more sense to have a speaker that is NOT a current standing member of either party? (This coming from someone who is not in politics and only knows the british gov by watching these TLDR videos)

    If there is no election before the 31st, Bercow will have one of the Manor of Northstead or Chiltern Hundreds positions

    His predecessor may have been incompetent in his role, but Bercow has been overtly political in his role as Speaker.

    As a foreigner who has had a great interest in the live sessions from the House of Commons over the Brexit years, I will say that the Bercow will be missed in the speaker's seat. I cannot speak to how fair he might have been, or his role in keeping with the political standard that dictates GB politics. But his energy, mastery of language, and all-throughout character leaves behind a void that will be hard to fill to completion. I think he has done an all-together admirable and venerable job in his role, and history should remember him so.

    I think it's time parliament as we know it is abolished, the governing body that is elected should have localized forums which can be attended by the people, no more of the London is the king. this would eliminate the kindergarten behavior we observe from Parliament, it would also eliminate the need of the Speaker, so no more little brat trying to usurp the government.

    A Scottish Speaker would be a most peculiar occurrence 🤔
    I imagine shouting ORDER ORDER with a Scottish accent, and I honestly think it would be just as funny as Bercow

      Bercow is about as funny as triple cancer
      Sebas1509.The man is a fuc*ing abomination and a disgrace to parliament .You are obviously either deluded or you need mental health treatment .Also we have already had a Scottish speaker many years ago so you obviously haven't a clue about parliament.

    He certainly was a character however the loss of entertainment will hopefully bring a more neutral and professional speaker.
    Personally he was an unsufferable oaf even more so than Boris.

    You need to offer Bercow a part of your merch profits. Even if only symbolic, it would be the right thing to do.

    It will be difficult for the next Speaker to fill Bercow's robe. He has been a special speaker in every way.

    Word of advice from an American watching this unfold from across the pond: when a conservative says "I promise I will be impartial" expect them to become an utmost bastion of absolute partisan hackery if appointed to the position.
