John Bercow was a member of a far right group and penned a sex guide to bedding women
The staggeringly crass piece, which also suggested telling a drunk girl “maybe we could go back to your place and name your breasts”, has resurfaced in the wake of Mr Bercow’s controversial call to axe a state visit by Donald Trump on the grounds of the US President’s perceived reputation for sexist and racist outbursts.
But it turns out Mr Bercow knows a thing or two about sexism and racism.
The Speaker, 54, had his name at the top of an article in radical Tory magazine Armageddon which told people how to pick up virgins and drunk girls.

He was also a member of The Monday Club, a far right pressure group with hardline views on immigration, and was committee secretary in 1981.
In the article, entitled 'John Bercow’s Guide to Understanding Women', it reportedly included phrases such as “maybe we could go back to your place and name your breasts”.
The article included the line: “Don’t move, I have just broken a test tube filled with the AIDS virus.”
Mr Bercow, who so vehemently opposed Donald Trump's attitude to women, reportedly wrote “women will settle for anything that breathes and has a credit card” in the Armageddon article.
He also acted as committee secretary for the Monday Club’s Immigration and Repatriation group, which called for “an end to New Commonwealth and Pakistan immigration, a properly financed system of voluntary repatriation, the repeal of the Race Relations Act and the abolition of the Commission for Racial Equality”.
Mr Bercow is facing strong calls to stand down from his role as Speaker, on he has held June 22, 2009.
