Bercow gags John Hemming MP over superinjunction

Speaker Bercow has shown once again why he is held in almost universal contempt by MPs and members of the Conservative Party.

John Hemming MP tried twice today to speak about a superinjuction - something he is perfectly entitled to do as Parliamentary Privilege means civil law doesn't apply in the Palace of Westminster - and was silenced by the Speaker on both occasions.

I bet all those anti-Bercow Tories who turned out to vote for him in the general election last year just to stop Nigel Farage from unseating him are really proud of themselves.
