    He's totally right-can't see what he did wrong here. Theres no bias in letting a MP know when he can object if he's been bery sliughtly (By a matter of seconds) out.

    To be fair, his knickers are permanently in a twist. He reminds me of a deputy headmaster...

    He's a bit better than the previous one - the Catholic. A beast of a man.

    Exactly what I was thinking; the way he was perfectly happy and then his face freezes and slowly descends into a scowl (as if in disbelief at the insolence) before he starts ranting reminds me of a teacher at primary school.

    I'm not a huge fan of Bercow, but I think in this instance he was within his rights - the Opposition had forgotten their procedure and he was giving them an opportunity to do things by the book. The Government Chief Whip overreacted quite a bit.
