Hello dear Steemians,
As many of you living in stable in both political and economical country we do not care much about the sittings of our Government and we sometimes do not know much what rules and regulations are made unless they somehow involves us directly.
So we were until Brexit time, coming from Germany the political scene and parties are different, in the past I had no idea how it is running in Westminster and who is Mr. Speaker until very recent turbid events. Slowly but surely we learnt a lot and especially in such hot situation there is obvious how politician using all methods to steer the mood of people and their decision. Even sometimes if they have to lie and behave themselves like children in kindergarden. I am glad that there is a Speaker who is the senior person who is controlling all this chaos.
Current Mr. Speaker is John Bercow and I believe recently he is well know everywhere due to two things:
- Because of his various way of calling for “Order” and because of his really wise and respectful expressions in any difficult situations. He is belongs to conservative party but very popular among opposition too, therefore was elected and re-elected multiple times and remained a Speaker for 10 years.
- Because he announced to leave his post by 31 of October 2019, again seeing the videos in youtube you may noticed how the opposition supports him but not his own party, that is really a shame.
My today’s attempt to draw Mr. Speaker and also I am attaching little link to the video about his for those who never heard about Mr. John Bercow:
