‘Order!’: Former Speaker John Bercow unlikely star of Belgian dance track

John Bercow, the former Speaker of the House of Commons, may have officially yelled out his last “ORDERRR” last week, but for anyone already missing him, a Belgian DJ has immortalised his not-so-dulcet tone in a new dance track.

“John Bercow is probably the most rock-and-roll politician in the whole Brexit saga,” Michael Schack, a Belgian DJ and drummer explained.

His track, simply titled “Order”, opens with the honourable former member of the House of Commons shouting what has become known as his catchphrase.

Bercow stepped down after a decade in the British Parliament’s presiding chair during which his booming voice, virulent putdowns and dragged-out shouts of “ORDERRR” have seen him become one of the most recognisable faces in politics both domestically and abroad.

Brexit, its drawn-out process and the divisions it caused in parliament, has particularly raised his profile as he found himself referring intense debates and choosing which motions could be put to a vote.

The video for the track has already been viewed more than 65,000 times on Youtube and show puppets representing Bercow, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, manically dancing to the intense beat and under pulsating lights.
