    No, I think that the House needs someone from a much more recent 'generation' to use the other place's term to drive it forward and I am not that person.
    Let's be honest, you just want to make it to the top of that infamous list, otherwise you'd have stood down a long time ago. If it's not that, you've been the Deputy Speaker for more than 40 months, which is more than three years! How about letting someone else have a go?

    To be fair, I admit it's something that I used to care about. When all the UKIP stuff happened though, it made me realise that it isn't important and it's a pretty stupid thing to be bothered about. I continue now because I enjoy being Deputy Speaker. When the day comes that I don't, that is when I'll step down.
