Set against the shifting political scenery from Thatcher to Blair, this is the first biography of John Bercow, Mr Speaker. Based on original interviews with more than one hundred people, including MPs from both sides of the House of Commons, Bercow's political allies, those plotting his downfall and a range of figures from his past - whether his tennis partner when he was a ten year old schoolboy or members of the Monday Club who knew Bercow as a rabid right-winger - the book provides a portrait of a man who continues to court controversy.
