Bercow got his worm

Everyone knows that John Bercow had an eye on the Speaker’s chair very quickly after Michael Martin announced his resignation.

He apparently circulated a manifesto for his campaign around fellow MPs within hours of Martin’s official demise.

But Lobbydog got a sniff of the full extent of his machinations earlier today when he was talking with defeated Speaker candidate Margaret Beckett.

She revealed that while she was canvassing support for her campaign MPs told her they’d been approached by Bercow for their backing up to three years earlier.

It seems he had been gathering names, possibly as early as 2006, and was waiting for the opportunity.

Between 2006 and 2009 came the years that Bercow was also active in working with the Labour Government, leading to defection rumours but boosting his cross-party credentials.

It seems the early bird got the worm.

I used to work for a female Labour MP, and can confirm that he was canvassing support/collecting names - certainly in 2007, if not 2006.

People should stop complaining about Bercow and give him a chance. He's not been in the job two minutes.

That is exactly one minute and 59 seconds too long.

The man sums up everything that the public despise about MP's
