A Spot Of Bother

The UK political scene is a bit unsettled at the moment with two members of the House of Lords suspended for acting like US Senators and consorting with lobbyists. What a shocking thought, changing legislation at the behest of someone with money … tsk, tsk.

Over at the other end of the building the Speaker of the House of Commons resigns for not being able to control the greed of the members of the chamber.

The BBC has a backgrounder: How will new Speaker be chosen?

Sticking with tradition, the new Speaker is dragged to the Chair, feigning reluctance.

Finally, the Speaker-elect must be approved by the Queen before they may take office.

Given recent history, I’m not sure the reluctance will be feigned.
