'ANGRY Tory Brexiteers have slammed 'biased' John Bercow as “nauseating” after the Speaker broke down in tears as he announced he was quitting.
A scuffle broke out around Bercow's chair as Labour MPs tried to hold on to the Speaker and held placards reading 'silenced' as parliament was suspended in the early hours of this morning.
Remainer Bercow – known for his eccentric outbursts in the Commons – choked up when he told the chamber he will resign as a Tory MP if Boris Johnson gets a national poll.
But while Bercow was treated to a long drawn out goodbye today - with MPs falling over themselves to pay tribute - there were few tears shed at No10.
Boris and his team have become infuriated by what they see as the Speaker's constant efforts to block Brexit and had planned to oust him.
And he is set to become the first speaker in 230 years not to be offered a peerage when he stands down.
One Government source told Buzzfeed: "Bercow thinks he’ll walk away as a hero, when most people in the country don’t know who he is and those that do think he’s a nauseating w****r.
"The man has been central to stopping Brexit - the nation won’t thank him.”
If MPs do not back the vote tonight, Bercow said he will resign on October 31 - the Brexit deadline.
Crucially, this means the arch Remainer Speaker, who proudly showed off a 'b******s to Brexit car-sticker, could still be in position for next month’s votes on leaving the EU.
Bercow’s resignation on Halloween allows him to be in the chair to help the rebel alliance with any attempt to stop No Deal or extend Article 50, until the very last moment.'
