Even Labour MPs want the speaker to go

Michael Martin's statement mid week may have got him of the hook in the short term, but in general terms, Michael Martin seemed hopelessly ill suited to the job of speaker. He seems to show undue bias towards the government and seems unable to manage the House of Commons in the way that MPs have come to expect throughout the history of his job.

We might expect that opposition MPs would be casting doubts about Mr Speaker, but when every one's favourite Labour MP (Bob Marshal-Andrews) is also saying that Michael Martin should step down, then it is high time the speaker reconsidered his position.

Surely by now, even the Speaker wants the Speaker to resign...
