John Bercow Issues Snipe At Angus MacNeill For Undermining ‘Statesman’ Potential By Chewing Gum

An SNP MP today faced a dressing down from John Bercow, after he was spotted by the House of Commons Speaker chewing gum. 

Bercow joked that Angus MacNeill was undermining his potential to become a statesman by acting in a “boisterous” manner. 

The MP was picked on as his colleague, Stephen Gethins, tackled the government on its Brexit strategy as part of an Opposition Day debate on EU withdrawal plans.
