Bercow says he will pitch to his constituents the things he believes are in their interests. But hang on a minute. At the last election he promised his constituents he would vote for a referendum on the EU, and postured as a strong eurosceptic on all occasions.
Yet once the real vote came, Bercow let his constituents down. Overnight out of the blue he transformed into a europhile, voting against a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. What happened to all the years he alleged he was a patriot who did not support the EU?
When John Bercow asks his constituents to trust him one more time in this election, they might stop and think for a second that a man who breaks his word is not to be trusted.
Buckingham does not deserve to be lied to any longer.
Nigel Farage deserves the seat.
Britain needs a voice.

Extract – “What a pleasure it is to see you in the Chair, Mr. Speaker, and to know that we have as our Speaker somebody who is simply not prepared to be pushed around, either by snobs or by bullies.”
Those were John Bercow’s words from an intervention he made in the Commons on Thursday.
