Zelensky would be a gallant knight
BRAVE Volodymyr Zelensky has united his nation in the face of overwhelming odds.
The Ukrainian president’s unflinching stand against Vladimir Putin has shamed wobbling Western leaders.
His defiant oratory, including last week’s inspirational address to the Commons, has kept the spotlight on the brutal Russian war machine.
By refusing to back down to tyrants or flee from the front line he embodies values that Brits hold dear.
So why not send an unequivocal message of support to him and his countrymen by granting him an honorary knighthood?
Of course such an award in the Queen’s birthday honours would not stop President Putin in his tracks.
But it would be another slap in the face for the depraved despot in the Kremlin.
As MP Bob Seely says: “President Zelensky has been a true leader.
“He has given a voice and set an example to his people in their hour of courage. Let’s make him Sir Volodymyr.”
We couldn’t agree more.
He’s a complete Berc
DISGRACED John Bercow’s treatment of his staff was truly appalling.
The former Commons Speaker has already been exposed as a monstrous bully whose behaviour shamed Parliament.
He even had his taxpayer-funded portrait altered to paint out his former private secretary after she quit over his ferocious behaviour.
It is a disgrace that this deeply spiteful man can still claim a lavish public pension after all the damage he has done.
State employees can be stripped of pensions if they are convicted of crimes.
The odious Bercow deserves a similar fate.
TV’S SATURDAY Night Takeaway has been missing a shining star for weeks.

So we wish him a speedy recovery from his recent visit to hospital.
Get back on TV soon, Stephen.
The show’s not the same without you.
