According to Bobby Friedman, a political commentator and author of John Bercow’s biography, the Tories have been waiting for an opportunity to get rid of him.
The Speaker, who is supposed to remain impartial in the House of Commons, came under fire after he went on a furious tirade about Donald Trump’s state visit last week.
A motion has now been tabled in Parliament by Conservative MP James Duddridge to oust Mr Bercow following his comments with 150 MPs set to support the motion.
The biographer believes that the Speaker will keep his job however warned MPs who back the motion that they might not get as many chances to speak in Parliament if they do.

Mr Friedman added on talkRADIO saying that the Speaker was very powerful and was not someone to get on the wrong side of.
He said: “I think James Duddridge and other MPs [who support the motion], they might not be called [to speak] in Parliament as much as they’re used to in the coming weeks.
“Bercow has a lot of power but he also does need the support of key figures on both sides.
“His problem is he doesn’t build bridges.”

Mr Duddridge, who filed the motion of no confidence, said: “He has overstepped the mark, he has overstepped the mark a number of times but this most recent incident – where he used the Speaker's chair to pronounce his views on an international situation in some quite detailed and lengthy manner is wholly inappropriate and it means that he can no longer reasonably chair, as Speaker, any debate on those subjects.
“This has been happening more and more often from this modernising Speaker.
“This is perhaps the straw that has broken the camel's back.”
Mr Bercow’s biographer however finished by backing the Speaker to keep his role in the House of Commons, as he argued that it has always been the Conservative’s objective to oust him.

He said: “It probably won’t work, but they’ll have a go at it. When people get the chance, they’ll try to stick the knife in him.
“The reason he was voted in [as Speaker] was a way of Labour MPs really sticking it to David Cameron. They knew he was the one person the former PM didn’t want to become speaker.
“Labour had to vote for a Tory, and they went for the one he didn’t want. From the beginning, there’s always been a divide.
