    What Does The Speaker Do?:
    Prorogation Explained:
    7 Ways MPs Can Block No Deal:

    Earlier this week John Bercow spoke at an event during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and he clearly isn't happy with the idea of prorogation. In this video, we talk about what Bercow said parliament's role in Brexit and how it shouldn't be swept aside in order to get a no-deal through.

        There's no apostrophe in "Says". Two weeks later, and this HORRIBLE typo still isn't fixed?! :(

                Proroging is to end business - Brexit would have to be finished, it’s not. Johnson says there will be time to discuss the agenda in the opening but I’m guessing that it will be at the back of the queue and it will be filibustered out of time.

                      The video doesn't explain how Bercow can stop Johnson's decision. Which would be the whole point.

                          skates mouth bercow is an undemocratic little runt!!
                          who gives himself far more power and prestige than he actually had. he thinks he is above democracy the PM and the queen. not to mention the 17.4 million leave voters who WON the 2016 referendum. if he and all his other traitor buddies think EU is so wonderful that they are happy to betray our country . then l strongly suggest that they all bloody emmigrate to Brussels. and do us all a BIG FAVOUR!!.

                                                I refuse to sign this contract. I also refuse to not sign it. I assert 100% that maybe this absolutely makes sense, certainly perhaps.

                                                  I don’t quite see how this is a fight. The Speaker simply does not have the power to prevent the Executive from exercising a prerogative power. What I’m more interested in is Leadsom’s comment during the leadership race where she said that she had spoken to the Clerks who advised her that prorogation against the House’s will was not achievable. Wonder what the Clerks’ advice was.

                                                    Bercow is willing to fight, just stick him in the ring with Boris and let the best man win and winner takes all.

                                                      I don't understand why they need to be prorogued to block no deal. Does Parliament even have the power to revoke article 50?

                                                                  Try to imagine the US where its citizens have their constitution walked over, and nothing is done about it. That is the UK.Better yet. Think of 'High Plains Drifter'!
