THE House of Commons has blasted "unacceptable" former Speaker John Bercow after he named staff in his autobiography without their permission.

His autobiography "Unspeakable" was released today, and includes a series of stories about his colleagues shared without asking.

John Bercow has been blasted by the House of Commons

He has now been blasted by the House of Commons, just days after a Parliament official said it would be an "outrage" if the remainer got a peerage.

The Commons said: "It is unacceptable to publicly name current or former staff without their prior knowledge or authority, especially for the purpose of financial gain or commercial success.

"A crucial element of the work of House of Commons staff is to provide confidential, impartial advice to MPs.

"Breaking this confidentiality undermines this important principle and also places staff in a position from which they are unable to respond."
