Britain’s House of Commons speaker announces he will quit

John Bercow, Britain’s House of Commons speaker has announced that he will quit soon. He played a key role in the three year Brexit crisis. Parliamentary rules were allegedly bent by the speaker so that the lawmakers could challenge government policy. This helped them to pass a law seeking to block a no deal exit from the European Union.

Once Brexit is finally over there needs to be an inquiry into Treason. Round up everyone who attempted to block Brexit and have them hung.

The difference between American and Britain conservatives is that the British ones actually have a spine, standing up to insanity.

I recommend everyone watch the speech he gave and all the members of parliament thanking him for his time as the Speaker, it was really wholesome

If the chaos in the U.K. continues, neither parliamentarianism nor democracy will be salvageable. At such a point, either active monarchy or a dictator appointed by the monarch becomes pragmatic. The House of Lords, iirc, was politicized by Tony Blair, and trying to re-aristocratize the House of Lords at this current point in time will probably be perceived as far more political than scrapping democracy all together. This is why you DON'T mess with aristocratic institutions. I don't care what Carl Benjamin thinks; he clearly has not read Thomas Hobbes well enough (and Plato/Aristotle, I think it is likely he has read the latter two but I do not know for certain).
