    John Bercow, the former Speaker of the House of Commons, told Sky News’ Trevor Phillips his decision to defect to Labour had nothing to do with the fact he had not received a peerage from Boris Johnson, as is customary for retired Speakers.’There has been no barter, no trade, no deal whatsoever,’ Bercow said. ‘ The people who make what they think is that potent and coruscating criticism of me are operating according to their own rather low standards.’
