Raucous laughter yesterday before President Obama’s address at Westminster Hall, after a flunkey announced that the Speaker, elfin John Bercow, would ‘make a brief speech.’

‘Brief?!’ shouted MPs, oblivious of the solemnity of the setting and the occasion. ‘You tell him!’

Bercow, according to my source, had to stand on tip toes to greet the the President at eye level, executing a comical balletic-type movement missed by the television cameras. Does Strictly Come Dancing beckon for this little exhibitionist?
