LONDON, ENGLAND РSEPTEMBER 24: House of Commons John Bercow announces that the house will sit at 11:30 tomorrow morning following the Supreme Court ruling that the current suspension of parliament is unlawful one on September 24, 2019 in London, England. The court’s unanimous decision said that Prime Minister Boris Johnson acted unlawfully when he sought the current five-week prorogation, or suspension, of parliament. “The decision to advise Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification,” said Baroness Brenda Hale, the president of the court.

John Bercow Early Life

John Bercow is a British politician who served as Speaker of the House of Commons from 2009 to 2019, and as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Buckingham between 1997 and 2019. His mother converted to Judaism while his father was born to a Jewish family. 

His grandparents were Jews who arrived in Britain from Romania a century ago. After settling in the UK, the family anglicised its surname from Berkowitz to Bercow.

Bercow went to Frith Manor Primary School in Woodside Park, and Finchley Manorhill, a large comprehensive school in North Finchley. He had been a successful junior tennis player in his youth but was too short to go professional. He appeared on the UK children’s television series Crackerjack in 1975.

In 1985, he graduated with a first-class honours degree in government from the University of Essex.

Bercow was a member of the right-wing Conservative Monday Club as a young activist. He stood as a candidate for the club’s national executive in 1981 with a manifesto calling for a programme of “assisted repatriation” of immigrants and became secretary of its immigration and repatriation committee.

He got married to Sally Illman in 2002 after 13 years of an “on-off” relationship and they have three children.

John Bercow Career

John Simon Bercow was born on January 19, 1963 in Edgware, Middlesex to Brenda (Bailey) and Charles Bercow, a taxi driver. After he finished from the University of Essex, he was elected as the last national chairman of the Federation of Conservative Students (FCS), 1986–87.

The Federation of Conservative Students was then broken up by the chairman of the Conservative Party, Norman Tebbit, after one of its members had accused previous Tory PM Harold Macmillan of war crimes in extraditing Cossacks to the Soviet Union.

Bercow attracted the attention of the Conservative leadership so in 1987 he was appointed by Tebbit as vice-chairman of the Conservative Collegiate Forum (the successor organisation of the FCS) to conduct the campaign for student support in the run-up to the 1987 general election.

He joined the lobbying firm Rowland Sallingbury Casey (part of Saatchi & Saatchi) in 1988, becoming a board director within five years after a spell in merchant banking.

Bercow ran an advanced campaigning and speaking course for over 10 years alongside fellow Conservative Julian Lewis, which trained over 600 Conservatives (including several current MPs) in campaigning and communication techniques. He has also lectured in the United States to students of the Leadership Institute.
