LONDON: House of Com­mons speaker John Ber­cow and vet­eran Con­ser­va­tive MP Ken Clarke were dubbed ‘Tandoori traitors’ for meet­ing in an In­dian restau­rant and dis­cussing a ‘plot’ to re­main in the Euro­pean Union.

Clarke is a known Re­mainer, while Ber­cow is ac­cused by crit­ics of be­ing a closet Re­mainer af­ter his re­cent de­ci­sions in the House were seen to go against the gov­ern­ment. The two re­port­edly met in the ‘Ken­ning­ton Tandoori’ in cen­tral London last week, when Ber­cow, ac­cord­ing to the Sun­day Ex­press, asked Clarke: “Where do we go from here?” They or­dered ‘pop­pad­ums, naan bread, lamb curry and beer’, and dis­cussed Brexit.
