Does John Bercow have a Napoleon complex?

Via Paul Waugh at PoliticsHome, we have this brilliant little conversation between dwarf Speaker, John Bercow and Mark Pritchard MP who was walking a corridor when the dwarf came along with his taller bodyguards entourage.
Bercow: "The courtesy of the House is that Honourable Members should stand aside when the Speaker passes by".
Pritchard:"Mr Speaker, don't point at me. I am not here to be abused by you."
Bercow: "You will obey the courtesies of the House!"
Pritchard: "You are not fucking royalty, Mr Speaker!"
Awesomeness of an awesome order.
