The Guardian view on John Bercow: after Brexit is the time for change | Editorial


Although the Speaker, John Bercow, and the leader of the Commons, Andrea Leadsom, palpably do not get on personally, they promised root-and-branch change. By this summer, a new, independent complaints system, crafted by Ms Leadsom, was up and running, while Dame Laura Cox was commissioned to write a wide-ranging report on the issue. Dame Laura does not mince her words about how this has been allowed to occur. But his time is nearly up, and parliament will need fresh leaders once the Brexit votes are over. He is right to stay on for the big Brexit showdowns, when he may prove vital to saving the country from a disaster.
