I understand that politics is not a topic most like to discuss, much less read about. However, when things are as silly as they appear to be in England's House of Commons, attention must be paid. How silly, you ask?
The man slouching on the bench inside Parliament's House of Commons is Jacob Rees-Mogg. The Leader of the House's casual position infuriated pretty much everyone who saw it (he was quickly scolded for it).
Parliament has been suspended for five weeks ahead of the country's deadline to leave the European Union (Brexit). Prime Minister Boris Johnson is being accused of shutting down Parliament to prevent further debate over Brexit, letting the clock run out before Oct. 31 rolls around.
The star of the show, in my opinion, is Speaker of the House John Bercow, who does not appear to be Johnson's biggest fan. Also, he is very well-spoken and calls people out on the floor for their nonsensical bally hoo.
Bercow, who has been Speaker of the House since 2009, is standing down from his position, for which he has become famous. He chastises members of Parliament, yells "Order" in the most fantastically British of ways and he wears very colorful ties.
So, while the U.K. panics about Brexit, let us draw inspiration from John Bercow's speeches and congratulate him on speaking so eloquently even at the most heated of times.
