The One That Asks. . .

. . . has there ever been a more graceless exit from public life than that which we saw from Michael Martin today? He looked furious, furious because he has been caught out, furious that he has made himself the news story, furious that the press have had the balls to buy and release expenses claims, furious that some MPs have dared to speak out against him, and furious that we the public have listened to what has been said and rested our gaze upon him.

Martin has demonstrated what I have always considered to be the worst flaw of the vocal socialist; it is all 'Brothers and Sisters! Let us struggle together against those who would seek to take that which is ours and live like parasites off our toil' up until such time as they then get their spot at the trough, when it becomes 'Guards! Arrest that peasant, he is looking at me, doesn't he know who I am?'

I understand that in the lobby before his resignation 'speech', the MPs lined up and applauded him into the chamber with a guard of honour.

How apt that those without honour should line up to guard the quality which is so sadly missing in the soon to be erstwhile Speaker.

Good riddance, Martin, fancy taking about 600 others with you?

I made this comment on Douglas Carswell's blog yesterday....

Douglas I would like to express my thanks for your attempt to get this despicable oaf removed from the position of Speaker of the House. I appreciate he isn't the only rogue element in Parliament but getting rid of Martin would be a good start. He has brought shame upon his office and if he had an ounce of integrity he would already have resigned. I'm sorry he has to be forced out, but it was his decision alone. Well done and keep up the excellent work.

To the Comment Moderator.... are you actually moderating comments? To allow 'despicable oaf' (19 May at 06:41)is a disgrace. Please keep this thread on the issues and do not allow offensive remarks. Thanks.

I thought I was being politefairly restrained. I suppose I should have just called him a venal, thick, arrogant bully. Why mince words? The trouble with Britain these days is there are too many Hoons!
