‘Rat JOINING Sinking Ship’: Twitter Lampoons Remoaner Bercow’s Defection to Labour

John Bercow’s attacks on PM Boris Johnson rung hollow as even Conservative MPs pointed out his membership as a young party activist of hard-line Tory factions that wanted to repatriate immigrants and hang jailed South African ANC leader Nelson Mandela.

The Twitterati have mercilessly ridiculed former British Parliamentary speaker John Bercow for his self-trumpeted move to the Labour Party.

Bercow took a last swipe at former Conservative party-mate Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday with his noisy defection to the opposition — singing the praises of hapless Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer.

The former speaker got a surprising welcome from Labour MP John McDonnell, formerly shadow chancellor under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, praising his ten-year tenure on the woolsack.

But some Twitter users wondered if the Labour leader was all that pleased to welcome his new party member.

​And one bright spark pointed out that the rats are supposed to leave the sinking ship, not join it.
