    Default Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP is elected as Speaker of the House of Commons

    Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP is elected as Speaker of the House of Commons

    The MP for Chorley is 'dragged' to the Speaker's Chair after winning the election to succeed John Bercow MP.

    A few interesting facts,

    - The office of Speaker of the House of Commons dates back to 1377.
    - The Speaker is 'dragged' to the Chair to symbolise unwillingness to hold a position of power.
    - The role often alternates via convention between the two main parties.
    - Arthur Onslow is the longest serving Speaker in history, serving for 33 years between 1728 - 1761.
    - There are only two former Speakers alive today; The Baroness Boothroyd and John Bercow.

    For such an important office of state, and which plays such an important role, it is so good to see the back of John Bercow who greatly damaged the role as a position of neutrality. I wanted Sir Lindsay Hoyle to take over, and now that he has hopefully he can restore the office back to the respectable one it once was. Along the lines of The Lord Weatherill or The Baroness Boothroyd, not Bercow.

    Apparently the candidates were asked whether they voted Leave or Remain. Hoyle was the only one who wouldn't say - PERFECT.

    Thoughts?

    I liked Bercow, he was good fun. This guy seems alright though.

    Also, hi.

    Sir Lindsay Hoyle pledged to bring back the traditional clothing, including the wig, which has been gradually phased out by successive Speakers since the 1990s, with Speaker Bercow actually banning the Commons Clerks from wearing the traditional wigs. Tomorrow is the State Opening of Parliament, but they cannot find the Speaker's full-bottomed wig that was last worn by The Lord Weatherill when he was Speaker.

    Fabulous to see dignity and tradition being restored to this once-great office. (love)


    How the Speaker of the House of Commons should look, The Lord Weatherill -

    John Bercow is now under investigation for bullying his staff, with former Black Rod and Lord Lisvane submitting allegations to HoC authorities.

    He's also complaining about being denied a peerage, as it is against convention. Oh yes, convention John.... that you swept away when it suited you.
