Goodbye Speaker

Douglas Carswell’s motion in the House of Commons reads:

No Confidence in the Speaker
bye-speaker“That this House has no confidence in Mr Speaker and calls for him to step down; notes that Mr Speaker has failed to provide leadership in matters relating to hon. Members’ expenses; believes that a new Speaker urgently needs to be elected by secret ballot, free from manipulation by party Whips, under Standing Order No. 1B; and believes that a new Speaker should proceed to reform the House in such a way as to make it an effective legislature once again.”

Nick Clegg has today signed the speaker’s exit pass by telling him it is time to go.  Don’t fret, his troughing and incompetence will be rewarded with a peerage and a back seat on the Lord’s Gravy Train.  Once a trougher, always a trougher…
