The revelation of the front page of today's Mail On Sunday that Dominic Grieve secretly met John Bercow a few hours before the president authorized the his killer amendment to make sense to the Brexiteers that Mr. Bercow is on a personal mission to thwart the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU.
And the pressure on Beaconsfield's MP, Grieve, from his local association, to increase it ̵
Seventeen Tory rebels, including Grieve, joined Labor, SNP and Liberal Democrats to defeat the government on Grieve's amendment of 308 votes to 297 on Wednesday – Second defeat of Commons Commons in 24 hours
It means that the Prime Minister will be forced to submit a motion that exposes his "Plan B" of Brexit within three days of the scheduled rejection of his agreement Tuesday
The pro-Brexit offensive deputies who accused Mr. Bercow of ignoring the opinion of his officials – and ignoring his duty to be impartial – will be infuriated by the appearance of "collusion" between the two men.
Mr. Grieve, who described a Brexit No Deal as a "national suicide", admitted last night that he visited Mr. Bercow in his apartment in the Commons on the eve of the drama, but denied that he "subjugated" the President to accept his amendment .

The Ex Attorney General refused to say whether the two men had discussed how his controversial move would be handled in the Commons. He said: "He was aware of the motion, but I do not discuss private conversations.
" I often talk to the Speaker about all sorts of things. We are parliamentary colleagues from Buckinghamshire. But I'm not in the Speakers' turn. They make their minds. I presented my amendment without speaking to the President.
"The way the Speaker has decided to move closer to the amendment is a matter for him."
The anti-Brexit campaign of Mr. Grieve has alienated many members to his local association.
One said last night that President Santokh Chhokar had been "bombed" by letters of complaint.
He added: "We do not want him to remain as our deputy, if he tries to get up again, I will personally throw rotten tomatoes."
Asked if he had confidence in Mr. Grieve, Chhokar said that all questions of # 39; association were private.
Shortly after the vote, Grieve was involved in a furious failure with Tory's vice president, Chris Philp. After Philp accused him of being "irresponsible" for presenting the amendment, Mr. Grieve protested: "I'm not changing the law of the country, I'm changing procedure."
Countdown to a coup in Commons: How Grieve about presenting his amendment
1. Tables of movement
Tuesday, Dominic Grieve presents his amendment that would force the Prime Minister to establish within three days of what he will do next if the significant vote does not pass this week. Its purpose is to allow parliamentarians to tell the government what they want to happen on Brexit.
2. Satisfy the speaker
Later that day, Mr. Grieve visits the speaker John Bercow in his apartment of grace and courtesy of the Commons.
3. Vote called
Wednesday, Mr. Bercow causes a stir by calling the amendment, despite the helpers telling him that he goes against the constitutional precedent.
Bercow's decision to authorize the amendment also caused anger with head of government Julian Smith.
Mr. Smith confronted the Speaker on his chair and told him that his behavior was "totally out of order." He said: "You are overthrowing the previous one, challenging the opinion of the chancellor of the Chamber and trying to overthrow the result of the referendum."
Mr. Bercow replied that he would not be "tyrannized" by Mr. Smith.
The local opponents of Mr. Grieve openly talk about "retiring" to his holiday home in Brittany.
The spacious and modern house is located five minutes from the fishing village of Lanildut.
Neighborhood Aude Guillermit said that Mr. Grieve and his family were there during the Christmas break. "I spoke with them and Dominic said that" the times were difficult for Britain and the Conservative Party ". Dominic's mother was French and he is a bilingual English-French speaker. It is equally at home in both languages.
"When Dominic is here, he spends a lot of time doing canoeing in the estuary and at sea, and he is also a very passionate lover."
Another neighbor, Helene Jaouen, said: "He speaks fluent French without an accent, he could be taken for a Frenchman."
Mr. Grieve said he was unaware of any call from members of the local Beaconsfield Tory association for being unselected for his actions last week and denied that he plans to abandon the next election.
A spokesman for Mr. Bercow confirmed that he met Grieve on Tuesday. He refused to say what was discussed, adding: "The meetings with parliamentarians are private and we do not comment on them."
But she insisted that the decisions on the amendments were taken "on the day of the activity in question and released or announced that day."
We can suggest you to retire to this small house, Monsieur Grieve?

Bercow could also have "B ******* to Brexit" pinned on the his swollen belly
by David Morris, Tory parliamentarian for Morecambe and Lunesdale
I heard that my rights had been er Oded, along with those of my constituents and parliamentary colleagues, regardless of their political color, writes David Morris (in the photo), Tory MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale
There are precious few occasions that can ever justify an MP that challenges the speaker of the Municipalities. But last week I unfortunately found myself doing just that. I still believe I was right to do it. "Publish it!" I screamed at John Bercow.
I was challenging our Speaker for the vote to stay clean on what advice he had received from the clerk of the communes before deciding to eliminate the established procedure and allow a challenging vote to Brexit taken.
I felt that my rights had been eroded, along with those of my constituents and parliamentary colleagues, regardless of their political color.
The Commons was yet to receive a clarification written by Mr. Bercow, although he claimed to have acted in our best interests by granting the amendment tabled by Dominic Grieve.
Mr. Bercow was shaking the precedents of the honored traditional Commons by creating a "one-off" rule, abandoning constitutional conventions and compromising his role as an impartial speaker. He also ignored the opinion of an expert of the City Council, Sir David Natzler, who intimately knows these rules.
Why? Well, it seems that Mr Bercow wants to do everything possible to counter the result of the referendum, allowing for another humiliating defeat for the government – without any warning
Bercow denies the claims that his car shows a "B *** *** s to the vignette of Brexit, saying that the vehicle belongs to his wife.But it could also be firmly clamped to his swollen chest on this occasion.
Speaker John Bercow speaking to the House of Commons on an amendment proposed to the Brexit withdrawal law on Wednesday, January 9
The Speaker is there to serve the Commons elected without prejudice, he should not ignore House's business and act as our teacher. It's like a cricket referee who, halfway through the game, invents a new method of firing to satisfy the losing party – especially if the hitter is Theresa May.
The Prime Minister is trying to get a working Brexit deal in the spirit of what people have asked in the referendum. We all know the polarized emotions and debates, but we as a nation have voted Leave and this must be honored and delivered.
That's what Mrs. May has committed to doing and now it's time for the President to support the established procedures of the Commons and not perform a & # 39; one-off & # 39; to satisfy himself. His actions did little to bring the country together and would be catastrophic if they were repeated.
This is a man who abandoned his rightwing principles as a Tory deputy to win the office of President in 2009 largely on the back of Labor votes.
Judging by the applause of the opposition desks last week, it seemed that he was repaying those Labor votes.
Traditionally, speakers give up their party affiliation to serve the whole house. At this important moment for the nation, it should not only be apolitical, but also bring together the parliamentarians.
Mr. Bercow indicated in 2009 that he would serve for nine years. Its self-imposed time has expired. Most of my colleagues believe they have betrayed his historic office and that the Prime Minister has denied him the traditional right offered to retired oratories. It can hardly object to breaking the precedent after having taught us last week that if past practices had never been reversed, nothing would ever change.
According to the same standards of creation of a "tantum", if Mr. Bercow should try to stand up as MP for Buckingham, the traditional privilege of the President in the session should be denied not to face the candidates of the main parties.
If Mr. Bercow tries to bend the rules this week to appear at the service of his own order or opposition, I will have no hesitation in standing up and protesting in the strongest way.
I have sworn to support the wishes of my community and of the people of our nation; a repetition of the President's actions will be considered a violation of the rights of my constituents.
But this time I suspect many of Tory's colleagues will stay with me to support our precious democracy and honor the interests of the people who voted for Brexit.  Tory MPs threaten Bercow about his peerage after "abuse of authority" in the crucial debate on Brexit
John Bercow faces the threat of mass protest by Tory MPs if he repeats his "abuse of authority" in the crucial debate Brexit this week.
The speaker was warned that over 100 MPs would resist to oppose a demonstration of "mass mistrust" of his authority.
Tory's MPs also said that Mr. Bercow should be denied the traditional support of the retirement president if he once again "bent" the old rules of the municipalities.
In an article for this paper, Morecambe MP David Morris claimed the threat of peerage, saying: "Most of my colleagues now feel they have betrayed his historic office.
Mr. Bercow has unleashed protests extraordinary in the Commons last week, when he was accused of shredding parliamentary procedure to allow a vote intended to tie the hands of Theresa May over Brexit.In the midst of furious scenes, the President has repeatedly accused of ignoring the opinion of an expert of 39, used by the municipalities, Sir David Natzler, to allow the vote The government subsequently lost the vote
Tory parliamentarians are threatening even stronger actions if Bercow repeats the tactics during the crucial final debates this week and votes Brexit agreement of the Prime Minister, sources said that over 100 were ready to line up "en masse" to protest whether Mr. Bercow shows what hiamano "brazen" against the government.
The threat raises the prospect of the whole debate that must be suspended.  Morris, who last week stood up and challenged Mr. Bercow to publish the opinion of the errant clerk of the communes, said he was ready to take part in the protest.
The deputy – a remaining voter who now supports Brexit – said: "If the President still tries to bend the rules, I will no longer hesitate to resist and protest."
Morris likened him to a cricket referee, who in the middle of the game invented a new method of dismissal to satisfy the losing party.
The Elector remains Mr Bercow has insisted that he behaved quite correctly and has always been & # 39; scrupulously correct against Brexiteers and Remainers & # 39 ;.
