John Bercow found to be ‘a serial bully’ and ‘liar’ by independent inquiry

The former House of Commons speaker John Bercow is “a serial bully” and a “liar” – that is the verdict of Parliament’s Independent Expert Panel, which adjudicates on bullying complaints against MPs.

It concluded that Mr Bercow was guilty of behaviour which had no place in any workplace – and recommended he be banned from holding a parliamentary pass.

He dismissed the allegations as “a travesty of justice”.
