The Daily Mail has a story this morning about how Speaker Bercow's "kaleidoscope queen" comment may have been a plug for a charity he is involved in.
While a spokesperson for the Speaker insisted it was "not necessarily about the Kaleidoscope Trust", the charity certainly made the most of the its president's reference.
The Trust issued a press release at around 3pm yesterday saying: "John Bercow has once again demonstrated his commitment to upholding the human rights of lesbian and gay people. His choice of words today will not be lost of those of us who have admired his commitment to the values and objectives of the Kaleidoscope Trust since agreeing to be our President last September."
And plenty of Conservative MPs were willing to stick the knife in. "Talk about a toe-curler," one senior Conservative MP remarked to me.
Another told the Mail that it was "completely inappropriate".
"The Speaker is entitled to his views on gay rights but he is not entitled to lecture the queen on the issue when he is addressing her on our behalf at an event to mark her jubilee."
Gay marriage is very much an issue waiting to happen in Parliament. A few Conservative MPs have mentioned the amount of correspondence they are receiving on the issue.
One admitted: "The number of constituents sending emails against gay marriage almost equals the number of 38 Degrees NHS emails I'm getting... I'm not against gay marriage, but I am conscious of the opposition in my inbox."
Expect much more on the issue once the Budget is out of the way. It seems not everyone is as keen to proclaim their support for the issue as Speaker Bercow.
