How does the HoC's Speaker perform his MP functions

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In days gone by others weren't meant to contest the sitting Speaker's seat, alas now they do.

    Still, how does the Speaker perform his/her functions as an MP i.e. raising questions in parliament?
  2. The British constitutional is a bit of a hobby horse for me. Having read many books on the subject, web articles and even dined with the HoC seconded QC and I still have missed what's on that website then I am Gordon Brown (and I will self-immolate in self-disgust).

    Tne mans such a plonker he cannot even preform the duties of speaker. The major parties do not contest the sitting speakers seat. And they say there's no such thing as jobs for life!!!!!!!!!
