So Michael Martin has finally put his ticket in... with effect from the 21st June...why so long I don't know!
Big question is who will be the next Speaker? The Tory blogosphere is saying its going to be Ann Widdecombe and that's ok with me, she at least has come out of this with her credibilty intact. Also amongst the betting is Labour's Frank Field another guy with lot's of integrity or Vince Cable from the Lib Dems. The guy I would like to see is Norman Baker, the Lib Dem MP the Freedom of Information champion in the Commons. He would be really good in bringing in some openess and transparency into Commons business.
