    So the race is on to elect a new speaker, after Mr Martins has resigned.
    Who do you think has the Integrity Honour and Balls to do the job. Past or Present Nominations Welcome.


    I would nominate Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

    He would sort the weak minded, spongers out.
     
  2. Widdicombe has thrown her hat into the ring and I'd be happy with her.

    I believe you are correct and he would indeed sort them out. However is he not somewhat........................dead :?

    I think the BMP bloke is just the man, not going to get his own way so he would be a pain in the arrse to the rest of them :D

    I go with La Widdecombe too. A woman(?) who can put the bejasus up anyone in the house.

  9. The Iron Lady for me!
     
  10. Judge Judy :? :D
     
  11. Don't be daft, he's dead too.
    Don't you remember they held a minute's noise for him at the funeral?

    ...on my way to the hansom cab.
    Driver! don't spare the horses!
     
  12. It looks like it's business as usual with Gordon and his cronies playing politics by proposing a pro-Liarbour Tory (John Bercow) that they know Cameron and the Tories won't back.

    All back to normal on planet Westminster - Gordon playing silly little party politics games while the country goes over the cliff. Does the Fuhrer not realise what contempt he is held in? He seems to think that just because his backbenchers were too cowardly to stand up to him, then that is the end of the affair and he can carry on as before.
     
  13. It'll take a man with an attitude to Parliament which reflects popular sentiment. A certain C. Stuart springs to mind.

    Some people might say he was none too successful last time, but his heart was in the right place and he's bound to be up for a rematch.
     
  14. Nice one Centurion
