The Speaker was visibly furious as he admonished Mr Gove, bringing the MP’s children into the scathing attack.
As Mr Gove reacted to the night’s events, Mr Bercow shouted at him: "I say to the Chancellor of the Duchy, that when he turns up at our school as a parent, he's a very well-behaved fellow.
"He wouldn't dare behave like that in front of [the school] and neither would I."
Continuing his attack, Mr Bercow blasted: "Don't gesticulate, don't rant, spare us the theatrics, behave yourself.
"Be a good boy, young man – be a good boy.”

Well, that was completely uncalled for from Bercow. Deeply personal animosity displayed towards @michaelgove - and drawing attention to details of his children's lives is an absolutely unacceptable infringement of their privacy.
