NOW Remainers have their reward for keeping the most obnoxious, discredited and shameless Commons Speaker of modern times in his job.
John Bercow, with Britain desperate for a deal to secure Brexit, scuppered the only one on the table with his most disgraceful abuse of power yet.

He unearthed a rule from 1604 saying MPs couldn’t vote twice for the same proposition. The same man who two months ago trashed centuries of procedure to help Remainers now says we must stick rigidly to ancient rules.
But you can bet your house he will allow multiple votes on defeated amendments for a second referendum, or for his Remainer pals to seize power.
Our entire future is in the balance. Theresa May’s deal is the only route to an orderly exit, fulfilling the mandate of the 17.4million majority, as she must. A third vote is unarguably in the public interest. For Bercow to halt it is monstrous.
Mrs May is having to fight a Remain majority AND a bent referee.
For three years Remainers have plotted to destroy Brexit. They’re nearly there. Bercow has almost delivered it.

The political consequences will be catastrophic, especially for the Tories. Too few seem to know or care.
The PM’s only hope is to present her deal again next week with a delay tacked on, or some other substantial change agreed with Brussels. That would be a different proposition and hard to ignore. But if Bercow fears that could pass, he will doubtless find a way.
As for Tory Brexiteers holding out against the deal, we have to ask:
Still think you’re winning?
Commons Speaker John Bercow says third meaningful vote can only be held if government’s proposition on Brexit deal is different
Oust the crook
TODAY voters have a chance finally to oust a criminal from Parliament.
refer to caption. Fiona Onasanya is an even bigger disgrace to Parliament than the rest of our MPs
Corbynista MP Fiona Onasanya was convicted of perverting justice, jailed, then lost her appeal. A judge ruled there was “absolutely no basis for challenging her conviction”. She turned up with no lawyer or paperwork.
Yet still she refuses to resign. She is an even bigger disgrace to Parliament than the rest of our MPs. But at least Peterborough voters can get a new representative if 7,000 of them sign a petition.
It’s open today. Get to it.
Shamed MP Fiona Onasanya begs voters to let her keep her job as she faces being booted out of Parliament

Stub them out
IT is quite a feat to give online ticket selling a worse name. Viagogo has managed it.
Anyone still buying from this site needs their head examined. Punters are routinely ripped off.
MPs are right to warn about it. But the Competition and Markets Authority must waste no more time.
It already has a court order in place. It must go after Viagogo for contempt of court, with the threat of prison for its bosses.
It is scandalous that unwitting buyers are still exposed to these cowboys.
