Bercow watch: Is he true to his pledges?

Iain Dale and Donal Blaney have highlighted Bercow’s failings – on his first day.

23rd June 2009:

  1. Brown improperly revealed the contents of his parliamentary statement to BBC’s world at One before he announced it in the House. (Originally reported by Paul Waugh)
  2. Although Labour MPs were guilty of heckling and unruly behaviour, Bercow chose instead to berate only Tory MPs for the same – Daniel Kawczynski, Bill Cash and Sir John Stanley.

Let Fausty know if you spot further evidence of Speaker Bercow’s failure to act in accordance with his manifesto pledges.

Update: In today’s PMQs, Bercow made a statement to the House insisting that the house must be the first to hear information from ministers who are due to make a statement to the House “and they must not be released beforehand” to the media.
