Our take on John Bercow's Absolute Power podcast

John Bercow's Absolute Power explains the instruments of power in the UK, what the government is allowed to do and what it can't. Deborah Frances-White discusses with John Bercow how British democracy really works.

Bercow served as speaker of the House of Commons (2009 to 2019) and was a member of parliament (1997 to 2019). As a result, he knows more about how the British government works than the average citizen.

In this podcast, Deborah quizzes one of the longest-serving speakers, who shares his knowledge on tradition, legislation, convention, and the constitution. A necessary listening to understand the ins and outs of the institutions that rule public life.
