Although the Serjeant-at-Arms Kamal El-Hajji has dismissed bullying allegations against John Bercow as a ‘witch hunt’, the Speaker’s problems are not going away anytime soon. Claire Perry, the climate change minister, has today accused Bercow of ‘sexist and demeaning’ behaviour – accusing him of having a ‘women problem’.
This video shows the incident Perry is referring to. In it, Bercow bizarrely refers to dilation.
Here is the full exchange between Speaker Bercow and @claireperrymp which has led to her complaint. What dilation has got to do with wind power beats me. 45 seconds in is Bercow at his absolute condescending worst. pic.twitter.com/CgA6u3cDaN
