"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

More fun and games this afternoon at quarter past two.  Will he or won't he be re-elected as Speaker?

  1. I'm sure pipsqueak has already sealed the deal, GV. Sadly we are seeing much less reform and decency than I had hoped. Silly me.

  2. He's been trying to shore up his position and ingratiate himself even more with some MPs, OR, and all the money is saying he'll survive a vote. We'll see what happens - it's a test of all those Conservatives who've previously spoken out against him - do they have a backbone or not?
