This blog is a political blog from a left-of-centre perspective. This is not specifically a party political blog, but does have a Lib Dem orientation. Constructive enagement with radical liberals, social democrats / democratic socialists and greens is particularly welcomed.

Who Cares About the Speaker ?

Lots of writers cramp is not doubt impacting upon LD (and Tory) bloggers over the future of Michael Martin as speaker of the House of Commons. Whilst he has hardly covered himself in glory, it is not him that is exercising people's minds, it is the grubby expenses claims of MP's.

As ever this reflects, in my view, how out of touch with 'real people' most people politically active are. Frankly, I'm sure more local minds were on Torquay United's visit to Wembley than the chattering classes obsession with The Speaker of the House of Commons. Get real people, get real !
