John Bercow SNUBBED: Ex-Speaker becomes first in 230 years NOT to get a seat in Lords: The New Year Honors List published today recognizes the outstanding achievements of people across the UK. More than 1,000 people have been honored, including high-profile politicians such as former Conservative leader Ayan Dunker Smith. One person, however, appears to have been left in the lurch.
John Bercow was denied a seat in the House of Lords; one would not automatically be offered to become the first Speaker in 230 years.
Former Speaker Michael Martin was ousted ten years ago for dealing with the spending scandal.
But, despite timely criticism, he became Lord Martin of Springburn,
Lord Martin died last year.
According to a report by Mail Online, the move is being seen as a ‘revenge’ from Prime Minister Boise Johnson for tackling Brexit.
The Prime Minister’s aides said that Mr. Johnson wanted to rip off the convention that Commons speakers are automatically promoted to the upper chamber when they resign, in the same way, Mr. Burgaye ignored the parliamentary precedent many times when dealing with Brexit Was.
During his time on the chair, John bercow was often accused of not respecting constitutional traditions and showing favoritism in his political decisions.
According to Brexiters, he tried to thwart any deal exit from the EU, and unfairly helped pro-Brussels MPs in their decisions.
He told the students at Reading University in 2014 that he voted to remain in the 2014 referendum because he ‘thought it was better than no’.
Also, in 2014, a bright-yellow “B * * * * * S to Brexit” sticker was spotted on the windshield of a black Range Rover in its parking lot outside the House of Commons.
Mr. Burgaye later claimed the car, and the sticker belonged to his wife.
A government source told the publication, “Nobody in this government will rush to give Burgoy a peerage.
“She likes to think of herself as a reform speaker, yet she has been dogged by scandals, and given any pretense she’s fair.
“With claims of bullying, his Brexit bias and willingness to ride abuses over established procedures, this Speaker has undermined public confidence in Parliament.
This news is likely to upset Mr. Burgoy, as he had earlier expressed his desire to become a member of the Upper House.
He said after standing down: “It is for other people to decide.
“But yes, I would accept if it was offered to me.
“I want to write, consult, have fun, and do well.
“I want to make sure that I am solvent, and I would like to talk to a wide variety of audiences around the world.
“That will appeal. What I hate and fear is dancing.
However, the move will not leave the former MP for Buckingham empty-handed.
Since standing down, Mr. Burgay has lined up a series of lucrative public engagements.
His election night on Sky News, Pandit reportedly earned him £ 60,000, and a few days later, he appeared on Italian TV on the late-night chat show ‘Che Tempo Che Fa.’
On Christmas day, he gave an alternative address to the Queen’s Christmas speech, in which he called for more “personal etiquette” in politics and society.
The Channel 4 fixture was first aired in 1939 as a counterpoint to Rani’s traditional celebration address.
And according to a recent Mail Online report, Mr. Burgay has also signed JLA, a post-dinner speech agency, which can earn him £ 25,000 for just one night’s work.
