+++ Sky : Speaker to Resign this Afternoon +++

bye-speakerHe presided over a period which saw parliament develop a culture of corruption. Not just the universal tendency of politicians the world over to travel on a taxpayer funded gravy train.  He himself was compromised by being one of the most outrageous examples of personal enrichment at the public’s expense while pretending to be a public servant.

He also repeatedly failed in his duty to defend the rights of parliament against the power of the executive. He should not be allowed to retire with the dignity of a peerage, he has disgraced the office of Speaker.

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
