So John Bercow is to stand down as speaker of the House of Commons.

Will he be remembered for defending democracy or for failing to defend his members of staff?

Having seen his demob happy performance in the house today then the sooner he goes the better.

He should go soon for being happy about being able to be free of the pressures of a job of high responsibility?

I applaud him standing up for parliament against the government.

Everything else - hmm, doesn't sound so good, no applause there.

BBC2 Rise of the Nazis, ep2. At the start of 1933, Hitler is the chancellor of Germany but he does not have absolute power. He sets his sights on dismantling the German state.

Seems like an unpleasant man who has been exemplary at his job. Brexiteers conveniently forget how he gave them voice from the backbenches before the referendum. I dread to think where we'd be without his steadfastness under pressure.

Watched a bit of that... I’m now wondering what day the Place of Westminster goes up in flames and Corbyn is “found” to have similar matches in his possession as were used to start the fire...

Whenever I see him I think of our bantam cockerel strutting about the field, with his 3 wives behind.

I couldn't give a flying Flamingo about John Bercow. I think he likes himself to much.

He does seem to be even handed, though, if reports are to be believed, a bit of a bully.

Angela Leadsom is after the role, as we need a more balanced, hard right, speaker. We need to get back on track and up to speed. We want to ensure a good plunge, rather than a mere fall, from the worlds stage.

Her only saving grace is that she is Maureen Lipman's evil twin.
