SPEAKING at a meeting with the Foreign Press Association in London, Mr Bercow said: “I’m no longer the Speaker, I don’t have to be impartial, so if you ask me if I think Brexit is good for our international standing the honest answer is not, I don’t think so.”

Mr Bercow, who has long been accused of being a secret Remainer by Brexiteers, admitted that he thought Brexit was “the biggest mistake of this country after the war”.

Adding: “I don’t think it helps the UK. Brexit is the biggest mistake of this country after the war. I respect Boris Johnson but Brexit doesn’t help us. It’s better to be part of the EU power bloc.”

Mr Bercow, who was frequently accused of siding with Remain MPs in Parliament, insisted he was “always fair in the chair” but admitted: “Brexit is the biggest foreign policy mistake in history.” and predicts that Brexit “won’t be resolved any time soon”.
