Speaker of the House


Book Reviewer
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.

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
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.
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.

I go with La Widdecombe too. A woman(?) who can put the bejasus up anyone in the house.
Anyone who can force womenprisoners to give birth whilst manacled to their beds in case they escape during the process, must be able to keep MPs under control.

However, she's in favour of the Expenses Gravy Train in that we pay for her cleaner - wish she'd pay for a cleaner for my house! And for that reason I wouldn't want her anywhere near the job, which will involve agreeing the new code of conduct for gravy train passengers.
