Immediate Past speaker of the House of Common, John Bercow has labelled Brexit “the biggest foreign policy mistake in the post-war period”.
He told journalists in London that he no longer had to “remain impartial” after stepping down from the chair after 10 years.
John Bercow stood down as Commons Speaker on Thursday 31 October, he was accused by some Brexit-backing MPs of siding with Remainers during his time as Speaker.
When questioned if Brexit would be good for the UK’s global standing, Mr Bercow told the event: “The honest answer is no.”
He added: “I think that Brexit is the biggest foreign policy mistake in the post-war period, and that is my honest view.”
Mr. Bercow also said, “with total certainty”, Parliament would be debating Brexit for at least the next five years – if not the next 15 – and that was “blindingly obvious”.
