John Bercow the Speaker of the House of Commons who to some is considered Marmite is set to receive a £1m pension after serving a decade in the green chair at parliament.
His package is worth almost £38,000 per year which is uprated in line with earnings, his current salary is £155,000 per annum.
He will also be the first speaker in 230-years not receive a peerage. A government source said,”No one in this government will be rushing to give Bercow a peerage.
“He likes to think of himself as a reforming Speaker, yet he’s been dogged by scandals and given up any pretence he is impartial.
“With bullying claims, his Brexit bias and a willingness to ride roughshod over established procedures, this Speaker has undermined public faith in parliament.”
