When John Bercow retired as Speaker of the House of Commons in October 2020, he had become one of the most recognisable and iconoclastic figures in British politics.

As Speaker since 2009, he had a ringside seat during one of the most febrile periods in modern British history, presiding over the Commons while it had to contend with key issues such as austerity in the light of the financial crisis; the coalition government between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats; and of course the most intractable problem of all - how to deliver on the 2016 referendum decision that Britain should leave the EU.

Now join Bercow in conversation with Owen Jones for this exclusive event, as he shares his insights on the future of our politics, and the lessons he has learned about implementing change. A seasoned raconteur with countless stories from the corridors of power, he will consider his verdicts on many of the leading figures of this era - from Tony Blair to David Cameron, Theresa May, and Boris Johnson - and explain the ways in which he has sought to democratise the business of Parliament, using the Speakership to champion the rights of backbench MPs and hold the government to account.

Characteristically forthright and grippingly candid, this promises to be a hugely entertaining event for anyone trying to understand the nature of our democracy and the processes of modern politics in this country.
