Another juicy bit of constitutional news from the weekend :
Conservatives to run a candidate against Bercow

Convention is that the Speaker resigns from his party when selected as such, and the major parties don't run candidates against him. The Conservatives seek to punish him for being loyal to Parliament, and democracy, rather than to the government.

Shitloads of precedent and gentlemen's agreements are being tipped out the Westminster windows. The UK urgently needs a written constitution, because nobody will ever trust anybody, ever again.
