Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bercow is under impossible pressure.

On the one hand a third vote is against all Parliamentary tradition, as codified in Erskine May. On the other hand the Tories will send over their media kneecapping squad if he doesn't.

He doesn't seem to have made up his mind yet.

The news for May keeps getting better and better. Former ally Matthew Parris has said in a Spiegel interview that almost everyone in the party now thinks that May - hired as a safe pair of hands - is actually mean, rude, cruel, and stupid.

Which actually makes her a good representative for a fair proportion of voters.

But not all, and certainly not a majority.
