I WAS appalled to hear Mr Bercow’s flippant response to Diana Johnson in regard to the front page of the Daily Mail.

If he wants to be a failed comedian he should resign his job of speaker of the house.

We have lost more than 2,000 victims to the contaminated blood scandal and many more will be dying because of it, including myself.

I have great disdain and am upset over his need to joke about the paper championing our cause for justice.

If he had made an uncalled for joke about the Grenfell fire people would be baying for his resignation.

We should be afforded the same respect and consideration.

I eagerly await his response.
