Speaker John Bercow risks hypocrisy charge - Zahawi

Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi tells the BBC that Speaker John Bercow has opened himself to charges of hypocrisy over his statement opposing US President Donald Trump addressing Parliament, given the leaders he has not objected to in the past.

Mr Zahawi was speaking after Monday's surprise statement from the Speaker - who generally steers clear of giving political opinions.
