Elevate former speaker John Bercow to the House of Lords in keeping with his long, distinguished and loyal service to parliament and the people of Great Britain.
Why is this important?
John Bercow has served the House of Commons unstintingly with honour, professionalism and dedication for a decade. It is unthinkable that the current UK government should deny his elevation to the upper House breaking with all tradition, common decency and good sense. John Bercow is far more worthy of this honour than many who currently enjoy it. Boris Johnson should not be allowed to throw his toys out of the pram and block this.
