A Good Day for Short People

One of our number has been elected Speaker of the House of Commons.

Hmmm... interesting choice, this. Bercow is known to have a vicious temper (though is unlikely to be cited in any domestic violence disputes, unlike certain other MPs).

Seriously, I once had a road accident with Bercow after he braked suddenly and I went into the back of his BMW. When I saw it was the diminutive little gnome getting out, he went scarlet and screamed at me: "I AM NOT HAPPY!". I tried not to smirk, and politely asked him: "So which one are you?"

You should have asked him for his autograph, that would have really wound him up :-)
