GENERAL ELECTION: JOHN BERCOW WILL BE FEATURING ON ELECTION NIGHT ON SKY NEWS
FORMER Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow will be featuring on election night on Sky news on December 12, the broadcaster has confirmed.
On what promises to be a night of political frenzy with the very future of the United Kingdom at stake, former speaker John Bercow will join host Dermot Murnaghan to give his vibrant account of the events as they transpire.
Bercow has been a controversial and increasingly notorious figure because of his Brexit interventions.
He has had a front row seat for much of the Brexit drama and recently claimed, as previously covered by Euro Weekly News, that Brexit was “the biggest mistake of this country after the war”.
With Bercow no longer having to be impartial John Ryley, head of Sky News, has said, as quoted on the media site:
“I’m confident this will be Sky News’ biggest, boldest election night programme, covering every twist and turn of the night, with explanation and analysis for all audiences.
“Sky News will have all the bases covered to analyse the results as they start to be reported, with the exit poll released at 10pm giving the first indication towards the possibly outcome.
“We’re delighted to be welcoming John Bercow to our general election coverage. House of Commons Speaker for 10 years, John will bring his own authority, and no little wit to a night of high drama.”
