Fresh doubts cast over John Bercow’s peerage as bullying claims resurface
 
David Leakey, a former Black Rod, accuses ex-Commons Speaker of being a ‘Jekyll and Hyde character’
John Bercow’s prospects of being elevated to the House of Lords were further undermined last night after a retired senior parliamentary official claimed he would be submitting a formal complaint detailing allegations of bullying against the controversial former Speaker.

David Leakey, a former parliamentary Black Rod, will accuse the former Commons Speaker of “intolerable rudeness and explosive behaviour” in a report to be passed to the parliamentary commissioner for standards, it was reported.
Lt Gen Leakey said he was “reluctantly” filing his own formal complaint “detailing allegations of bullying, intimidation and unacceptable behaviour” by the former Buckingham MP.
