Speaker election tit-bits

Just nipped in to blog while they're voting in the first round.

Beckett called herself a "House of Commons Woman".

She was solid but will have confirmed the fears of those who don't think she'll push reform hard enough.

She said she would not instigate change, but would "facilitate" it.

Bercow tried to do the "speaking without notes" trick, but his oddball mate Julian Lewis was sitting next to him holding up prompts.

I think we'll probably need another two rounds of voting after the first.
