Bercow brands Johnson 'most powerful' but 'least effective' British Prime Minster ever
John Bercow has just deployed one of his now trademark takedowns of Boris Johnson and it is pretty savage.
Bercow appeared on Sky News' The Great Debate with Trevor Phillips and he made it clear he isn't the biggest fan of the PM.
Asked whether he would send the PM a love letter or a letter of dismissal, the former speaker of the House of Commons didn't mince his words when explaining why he would choose the latter "without hesitation".
"Never has a prime minister wielded so much power, made so little effective use of it, and been and been seen to be in quite such an indecent haste to blow his own trumpet," he said.

Watch it. Listen. Re-listen. Digest it. And Retweet it everywhere. Show the world, and that are watching us right now, that not everyone is sucked in by the ineptitude and lies of Boris Johnson. That the country still sees and holds sense.pic.twitter.com/czLcSyDEVb

People might say he has an axe to grind but John Bercow summed De Pfeffel up masterfully there on Sky News. Every single thing he said was bang on the money. Perfectly said Mr Bercow \n\n#THEGREATDEBATE
Meanwhile, it is not the first time Bercow has described Johnson as the worst prime minister he has known. In December last year he said the PM "stinks in the nostrils of decent people" as the Partygate scandal was unveiled.
“I’m sorry to say it but I’ve known 12 prime ministers in my lifetime and by a country mile Boris Johnson is the worst," he said in an appearance on Good Morning Britain..
Seems like in the last two months he hasn't changed his mind one bit.
