NIGEL Farage hit out at Speaker John Bercow for “breaking parliamentary precedent” and “ignoring legal advice” by allowing an amendment tabled by Tory rebels to be put through to the House of Commons.
John Bercow is a “twister” who is “abusing the integrity” of his position as House of Commons Speaker, claims Nigel Farage. The former Ukip leader also believes the Labour Party “predominantly” kept Mr Bercow in place so that he could “disrupt Brexit”. Referring to the Speaker on his LBC radio show, Mr Farage blasted: “He is not impartial on this or frankly any other issue. I think he’s stepped way over the mark today, he’s broken with parliamentary precedent.
“He’s ignored the legal advice he was given by the clerks of the House, he’s refused to publish that advice.
“You know, a few months ago he was going to be sacked wasn’t he, remember the bullying scandal.
“All those things that were being said, he was going to be sacked, it was the Labour Party predominantly that kept him in place and they kept him in place because he wants to disrupt Brexit.”
Mr Farage added: “The man is just a twister, he is abusing not just his own position, but the integrity of that position of Speaker of House of Commons.
