Nigel Farage takes swipe at ‘little man’ John Bercow as he sparks outrage in first Commons speech​

Reform UK leader Nigel Farage was met with jeers as he delivered his first ever House of Commons speech.

The 60-year-old opted to focus his first speech on speaker Lindsay Hoyle by praising him and taking a swipe at his predecessor, John Bercow.

Nigel Farage, the leader of Reform UK, is next up, describing his party of five MPs as "the new kids on the block".

"We have no experience in this parliament whatsoever even though some of us have tried, many times, over the years," the MP says.

"So we can't judge you from working in this place, but we can judge you from the way the outside world sees you."

Mr Farage says he doesn't just mean the UK - but the world.

He goes on to endorse Sir Lindsay Hoyle as Speaker of the Commons.

But it isn't without a dig at his predecessor John Bercow.

"It is, I must say, in marked contrast to the little man that was there before you and besmirched the office so dreadfully in doing his best to overturn the biggest democratic result in the history of the country.

"We support you fully."
