'Only three Tories' voted for new Speaker


Conservative MP John Bercow is to begin work in his new role after being elected as Speaker of the House of Commons.

Conservative MP Nadine Dorries, Vernon Bogdanor professor of government at Oxford University, and Alan Duncan, shadow leader of the House, discuss whether Mr Bercow will be a successful Speaker.
