The Government is coming under increasing pressure to clarify their position on the future of John Bercow as Speaker of the House.
The outed Remainer faces mounting scrunity amid growing calls for his resignation after what critics call an undefensible violation of his role's neutrality.
During a cringeworthy appearance on The Andrew Marr Show, David Lidington, the Leader of the House of Commons, was criticised for "waffling" when asked about Mr Bercow's future.
However, Marr continued to press on whether Mr Bercow's exposed support for Remain as well as against Donald Trump's character has compromised his position.

The Sunday Telegraph revealed that Mr Bercow had spoken about his voting stance in a question-and-answer session with students at Reading University.
His comments put him in direct opposition to the Government's position and the people's will following the referendum result.
During that appearance, Mr Bercow also revealed his passionate support for immigration as a social good.
In a BBC interview this morning, Marr pressed Mr Lidington and continously asked whether the House Speaker had made the Government "anxious and embarassed".
The MP, who was the longest serving European Minister when he spent six years in the role under David Cameron, was widely known as Remain backer himself.
Mr Lidington struggled to evade Marr's line of questioning and was mocked on social media for his "uncomfortable" demeanor.

Many feel that John Bercow is hanging onto his job
It's a matter for the House. The Government cannot get involved into who the Speaker should be
He repeatedly told the BBC: "It's a matter for the House. The Government cannot get involved into who the Speaker should be."
Marr said dozens of MPs, who have since tabled a motion of no confidence in Mr Bercow, were "furious" with the Speaker.
When the Tory MP for Aylesbury continued to evade questions, Marr said he sounded like he "supported Bercow".
However, all Mr Lidington would say was that "Bercow has very strong supporters and very strong critics".
Bercow's controversial comments on Donald Trump have also provoked outrage
Mr Bercow himself has come out to defend himself and insisted that his impartiality has not been affected by his recent remarks.
His spokeswoman said the way he had cast his ballot had no impact on his ability to deal fairly with all MPs.
However, earlier on The Andrew Marr Show, Conservative Woman's chief Laura Perrins said that the Speaker had disgraced his position with his comments.
She said that John Bercow "seems to believe that the rules of parliamentary neutrality do not apply to him" and called for his immediate resignation.
Others on social media ridiculued Mr Lidington as appearing "very uncomfortable".
One user remarked that it was not the best idea to put out a former European Minister to counter Mr Bercow's Remain support.
Another tweeted: "Bercow voted Remain. So did Lidington. Is Bercow now any more anti-Brexit than Lidington?"
