What does it say about current House of Common’s Speaker John Bercow that he couldn’t convince his wife Sally Bercow not to go on UK Celebrity Big Brother?
Now I can relate to Sally Bercow because I too am independent, strong willed and free spirited. And I don’t think that you should have to simply sit quietly in the corner and be a wallflower just because your spouse has a high ranking government position.
But Big Brother? Considering the unique nature of her position — being married to the highest commoner in the land — is this the best she could do to take a dig at the establishment?
Having watched a bit of the show (where do I go to get my time back?), I think she is proving to be an attention-seeking liability to her husband.
Case in point, was it really necessary for her to tell the world among other things that she gave her husband a “dirty weekend” so as to support her decision to go on Big Brother?
With all of this and more that I’m sure to come, wouldn’t be surprised if John divorced her or at a minimum gave her the cold shoulder for embarrassing them both while in the house. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Labour Party takes her off the approved list of candidates for Parliament.
