Who should replace "Gorbals Mick"?

#1
Who should replace the esteemed Speaker if he were so unfortunate as to fall under a bus.

Obviously they must have certain qualities I name a few, others may have their own ideas.

Integrity.
Ability to see all sides of an argument.
Have the respect of his peers.
Have a bi-partisan approach.

My three front runners are:

Galloway, Mr George (Respect) Bethnal Green & Bow
Adams, Mr Gerry (SF) Belfast West
McGuinness, Mr Martin (SF) Mid Ulster


Anyone e;se any suggestions?

Is Skinner still breathing? The Beast of Bolsover would have made a great Speaker a few years ago.

Tony Blair. He is honest, releiable, non-partisan, genuine, modest and totally unselfish.

Sounds like a perfect job for Ming Campbell. A chimp could do a better job than the current Speaker, whose only great achievement has been to award himself a whopping pension at our expense.

The Beast of Bolsover is still alive and kicking, though due to retire at the next election I believe.

To all the rest of you, who put forward their own names and that of fellow Arrsers, is that a statement of intent to run for Parliament?

If so I take it that you will be forming a new Party (in the broadest sense of the word Party)

The job would better suit someone who likes to go to work wearing silk stockings, gowns and lace cuffs.

The extracted liver of a cirrhotic terrapin. It'd make a better Speaker than Gorbals Mick.
