Labour has its new leader and candidate for PM.

Yeah, that occurred to me too. Stranger things have happened...

Labour is desperate for populr figure, Bercow is certinly that, and his record in Parliament fo standing up to the Tories will make for good viewing.

John McDonnell “wholeheartedly” welcomes Bercow; leader’s office no comment so far.

John McDonnell, Labour's shadow chancellor under Jeremy Corbyn, said Mr Bercow had been "scrupulously fair" in his treatment of MPs, including the former Labour leader.

"He won our respect, especially for his fight to protect the rights of Parliament," he said. "I wholeheartedly welcome him into the Labour Party."

The Labour leader's office declined to comment.

Expect the Guardian to bitch about this.

What about a Tory Woman joining. Theresa May? Amber?

Ms Rudd might bring along her former squeeze, old Etonian Kwasi Kwarteng.

He's not a Tory, he's a Labour party member.

Bercow has been quite outspoken in his admiration for Corbyn.

"Bercow defects to Labour."

To defect means to abandon a cause in favour of an opposing one. Adopting one flavour of Tory for another is not a defection.
