Early day, substantive, whatever - I can't see the Speaker surviving this. It's clear that he is a liability for both the Government and the House, and his authority is too compromised for him to preside over any meaningful reform. So, the theatre today has basically changed nothing. I suspect we all knew that this bad joke of a Speaker wouldn't take the honourable route, and resign all by himself. But there's a whole host of people gearing up to give him a push. And there are more ways for them to do so than by submitting a motion, early day or otherwise.
P.S. Let's plan ahead, shall we? Say which MPs you'd nominate as Speaker in the comments section below, and we'll run a Coffee House poll later.
