17 times the hilarious NSFW Sweary Bercow said what the real Speaker can’t

The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, has emerged as a key figure in the Brexit game, which Arron Banks and Nigel Farage would have had us believe was going to be Hungry Hungry Hippos, but we now know to be 3D chess on a flaming board with explosive pieces. The Speaker has led many crucial proceedings with a fascinating combination of apparent unfailing politeness, while managing to make his comments sound like the most scathing put-downs – it’s a rare skill, but we can’t help wishing just once, he’d say to certain MPs what we’re thinking about them.

A new and wonderful Twitter account, @BercowSweary, has the free reign that the Speaker does not, and it’s a beautiful – though not even vaguely safe for work – thing. These are a few of our favourites.
