For once I find myself in agreement with something that Alex Salmond has to say…
In that BBC article, Salmond says:
There should be a general election because it’s not a question of people just having no confidence in the speaker – it’s a question of people having no confidence in the Westminster system.
If anybody among the MPs believes they can just get rid of the speaker and everything else will be hunky-dory, I think they have another thing coming.
Just so long as he doesn’t forget that his own expense claims are not beyond reproach.
And that there’s still little chance of my voting for him.
