MP's Four Letter Rant In Westminster ...

No, I'm not criticising him. I'm applauding Mark Pritchard for taking on the arrogant bugger who controls the house, the little egotistical Speaker John Bercow (above).

After Bercow made a gaffe and refused Pritchard the chance to ask a question because he wasn't in the House in time (he was, Bercow just didn't see him) Mark Pritchard confronts Bercow in the the coridors of power. The Speaker then stopped and pointed at Pritchard.

Bercow: “The courtesy of the House is that Honourable Members should stand aside when the Speaker passes by”.

Pritchard: “Mr Speaker, don’t point at me. I am not here to be abused by you.

Bercow: : “You will obey the courtesies of the House!

Pritchard: “You are not fucking royalty, Mr Speaker!

Apparently, T-shirts with the phrase "You're not fucking royalty, Mr Speaker!" have already been printed.
