Honest? You aren't, Sally.

John and Sally Bercow. What a lovely couple, eh?

That John, he's a busy man. Pledged to single-handedly 'clean up' Parliament. To root out the dishonesty and lies that have infected the place in recent years. Tough on fibs, tough on the purveyors of fibs.

A tough job. Still, at least he has the home comforts. That lovely, fragrant wife of his, Sally.

It must be nice to go home to her every evening, and share the trials of the day, eh?

Tales of all the lies discovered, the dishonesty revealed. The bright light of truth, shone into every murky corner. You can imagine him sitting there, cocoa in hand, pompously going on about the "importance of integrity".

Wonder if Sally blushes a bit, tries to change the subject, shifts about on her seat?

She fucking well should.

The Daily Mail  this weekend revealed that Ms Bercow has some shameful secrets of her own.

Some years ago, Ms Bercow - then Ms Illman - was taken on by a leading City firm. Doubtless they were impressed by her CV which, amongst other things, claimed she had an Upper second in Theology. From Oxford University, no less.

However, when the firm rang Oxford for confirmation, they found that this claim was .. ahem ... a Terminological Inexactitude. A big fat porkie. A lie.

Sally was shown the door. She probably hoped the episode would sink into the sands of time, and be forgotten. She hoped wrong.

Naturally, on being accused, Mrs Bercow has issued the traditional response, tediously familiar to us all: "No I never"

Equally naturally, she didn't speak herself - a 'spokesman' - there's always a fucking spokesman - was deployed.

Managing to keep a straight face, the spokesperson informed the sniggering world that Ms Bercow had got an Upper Second. Just not for her degree. No. Eh?

Mrs Speaker-to-be studied Theology for her first two terms and scored that upper-second-class in her first-year exams.

She then switched from Theology to History, fucked that up, and left a year later. According to her contemporaries she ".. was asked to leave because of her poor academic performance".

Regardless, there's no argument that she left. Without getting to end of either course, and therefore without any fucking degree at all.

When the .. err .. erroneous CV was mentioned, the spokesman waxed indignant:

'In the CV she said she was at Oxford .. Nor did the CV say that she completed her degree.'

For fucks' sake. How stupid do you think we are?

Whilst 'at' Oxford, in all the spare time afforded by not bothering to work at her degree, the young Sally was an active member of the Conservative Association.

So observers were a little surprised when, shortly before aborting her course, she joined the Liberal Democrats.

But they didn't fret for long. She later returned to the Conservatives, and even addressed the party conference in 1993.

But then, ever fickle, by 1997 she had defected to Labour and was campaigning for Tony Blair.

She's stayed loyal to the red team, and recently announced that she will stand as a Labour candidate in next year's elections for Westminster City Council.

So, here we have a lady who clearly has no fucking clue about her own political views, willing to chop and change parties depending on where the advantage lies, and a lady who has not hesitated to lie about her past achievements in order to get what she wants.

She and the Labour party are clearly made for each other.

What is it about these Lefties which compels them to lie, lie & lie again about their supposed academic qualifications ? ..

In recent times .. we've had "Dolly" Draper .. now this old Tart .. One has to wonder just how many more of them are claiming spurious degrees ?

I also seem to recall some dispute about Neil Pillock's University days too ..

I reckon a thorough, in depth investigation into the collective academic claims of all ZaNuLiebore politicians is called for ..

It might prove to be very revealing reading ..

I was a year behind John Bercow at Essex Uni. Horrid and disgusting little man. I'm sure he deserves her.

A bit harsh CF ? After all, she might have got an upper second if only she hadn't chopped and changed her course in the same way that she later changed political affiliations and if she wasn't just so rubbish.

In Oxford, surely?

Unless things are different at Oxford I thought that it was universal that only second and third year marks counted towards a degree.

As any fule kno the first year is largely taken up with trying to get the little ones used to being away from mum, not spending all their fucking grant on vodka and getting pissed throughout the first fortnight, being encouraged to pitch up for the occasional lecture or tutorial, and now and then (pleeeaaase!!)submitting 500 words of shite at the absolute last minute. None of this qualified for an upper or lower in anything.

Lying cow!

John Bercow is a Conservative and cannot really be called a "leftie".

What his wife thinks or do is irrelevant UNLESS she becomes a political figure. Being married to a political figure isn't enough.

What a nasty, spiteful post.

"irrelevant UNLESS she becomes a political figure".

Read the post again:

"..recently announced that she will stand as a Labour candidate in next year's elections for Westminster City Council"


"John Bercow is a Conservative and cannot really be called a "leftie"."

Read the post again. He wasn't.

"What a nasty, spiteful post"

If you'd rather not know about the dishonesty, selfishness and greed of our ruling classes, perhaps you're reading the wrong blogs?

Why not try The Kitten Channel: its all about kittens. And there are pictures. Awwwwwww....

Via TIm Montgomerie, I see she's now laying into the Tories as a bunch of toffs. (Presumably she doesn't count as a toff, having been thrown out of Oxford University...)

On Cameron: "He's just a merchant of spin. I think he's really an archetypal Tory. He favours the interests of the few over the mainstream majority."

More hilariously: "I'm really keen on Harriet Harman and her equality agenda - she's done such a lot to advance the cause of women and I completely agree on her all-women shortlists: they transformed the Labour Party."
