Bercow just doesn't get it

Comments by speaker John Bercow regarding the MP expenses scandal will do nothing to defuse public anger.
He thinks that we have to be satisfied that MPs have "got the message" on expenses.
I'm sorry John, we are not satisfied.
The worse offenders have milked their claims over a long period and have tarred the others with the same brush.
Only this week David Wilshire's outrageous abuse of the system has come to light.
Now is the time for payback - literally and metaphorically.
Part of that is an element of contrition and humility.
Bercow's remarks suggest that MPs are displaying neither of those traits.
