I never liked him much before this, now he's my favourite MP. 

On the other hand, it might be a kick for Trump to come and go full vulgarian all over both houses.  Might put Theresa the appeaser in her place.

More likely lost him his job. I get that he feels he needs to prove he is a man since his wife's "favours" but the Speaker is meant to be impartial. He put his foot in again today. Bye bye Bercow.

Did you see the update to this? They're moving Trump's visit to when Parliament isn't sitting. Haha.

Except that foreign heads of state don't usuall address parliament anyway. In the last 80 years there have only been about 40 invited to do this and only 3 of those have been a US president.

This all seems a bit of a non story and is just Bercow doing what he does best lately, being a di**. :)

To anybody who is nauseous at the idea of world leaders sending messages of validating or even endorsing  tRump's behavior, it's news. I'll take what I can get  ;0)
"Human" is a noun. "Black", "White", "Asian", "Latino", "Indigenous", "Male", "Female", "GLBT", "Straight", "Christian", "Jewish", "Muslim", "Buddhist", "Hindu", "Pagan", "Conservative", "Liberal", are all adjectives.

Then you might want to read up more about Bercow and the questions he allows he in parliament. Then look at who gets given  a high number of those questions and why.

It looks like you're kinda assuming I must not know anything else about him there, innit?

The comment was "I'll take what I can get" with public officials not feeding tRump's egomania, not "I think he's the frackking bomb and wanna have his babies" ;0)
