Speaking his branes

On this blog and the Stirrer, PragueTory has been having a pop at the Speaker, Michael Martin.

As a matter of fact, I think the outburst in the Commons yesterday against Kate Hoey was uncalled for and unacceptable and he is missing the point entirely to call the police in to investigate the leak.

We could, of course, replace Martin with the Deputy Speaker, Conservative MP Sir Alan Haselhurst, who has trousered £142,119 for his country residence over the past seven years, even though he has no mortgage to pay and has also billed another £12,000 in gardening bills.

Oh. Perhaps not.

Thanks a bunch for the blogpost title! Who said that I had a successor in mind - it's almost like you need to misrepresent me to bolster your argument.

Back to the point, Martin is either up to the job or he isn't. He isn't.
