Add another to Melanie Phillips' list…

without comments

The Speaker Michael Martin is the latest public figure Melanie Phillips has called on to resign (see previous post “Do the press’ calls for people to resign have any effect?“).
Under the headline “Until the Speaker goes, our faith in Parliament can’t be restored“, Phillips gets even crosser than usual:
“He [Martin] is simply the worst Speaker in living memory. It is a disgrace that he is still in office. But then, this dreary catalogue of abuse of office is all of a piece with the tragic decline of that great institution of which he is the custodian”.
Still, based on previous form there’s now every chance Martin will stay in it for the long haul.
