Orderrrrrrrrr! UK parliament speaker John Bercow's memorable moments

Britain's House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, known for his fiesty temperament and florid style, has said he would stand down from the role.

Rough cut (no reporter narration)

Bercow, who played a key role in the three-year Brexit crisis, said on Monday (September 9) he would stand down from the role, issuing a warning to the government not to "degrade" parliament.

Bercow's put-downs of misbehaving lawmakers, ranging from headmasterly to acid, have made him something of a cult figure among global television news audiences and on Brexit-following social media.

Known for his trademark ORDER holler, he has championed parliament against the executive more than any recent predecessor.

Bercow occupied the throne-like speaker's chair, positioned between government and opposition benches in parliament, since 2009.
