John Bercow vs The Sun: Sally snogs and hacking Japan
John Bercow, House of Commons speakers and husband to Sally the Seleb, has been “blasted for racking up a £10,000 bill; on a junket to Japan”. So says the Sun. We hear the view of “one senior Tory MP, who tells us:
“John Bercow is a disgusting freeloader, I bet the Japanese did not even want him to come.”
By way of balance the Sun also hears from Dia Chakravarty of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, who says Bercow “didn’t provide the taxpayers with better value for money”.
In previous news, totally unconnected to the Sun’s view of Bercow:
MPs and peers have “rediscovered their collective balls” over the phone-hacking affair, the Speaker has told the Guardian.
Sally Bercow has blasted The Sun after the newspaper published pictures of her kissing a man under the headline “Must Tongue Sally”.
Such are the facts.
