Ber­cow the hero for once in SNP’s com­edy farce

Daily Express - - LETTERS -

THE SNP walk­out dur­ing Prime Min­is­ter’s Ques­tions re­minds me of an old black and white Eal­ing com­edy, with the plucky “ev­ery­man” hero lead­ing the op­pressed in de­fi­ance of their vil­lain­ous masters (“Chaos as SNP stages walk­out in protest at ‘post-exit power grab’”, June 14).

Of course, in the Eal­ing com­edy the press and the na­tion fall in be­hind our he­roes and it all comes good in the end.

By con­trast in this farce, the na­tion was en­tirely in­dif­fer­ent to Ian Black­ford and his MPs and just for once John Ber­cow, the Speaker of the House of Com­mons, was the hero of the day. Otto Inglis, Ed­in­burgh
