Speaker John Bercow 'uninterested' in newspaper stories

The Speaker said he was "supremely uninterested in what is written in many of the newspapers" about him when asked about the media profile of himself and his wife, but recalled how a Daily Mail article upset his mother.

Mr Bercow told Becky Milligan on Radio Four's The World at One how his politics have "mellowed" over the years, saying he used to be to the right of Margaret Thatcher. He described his political journey as an "honest change of heart".
