    I really didn't expect this. Given Nigel has stated he plans to leave this place soon I wonder who the new speaker will be,

    I voted for Ray in the second round against Nigel- I'm sorry I couldn't this time, the house requires an active Speaker

    You have my commiserations but I'm sure you'll bounce back from this quite easily. All the best with your exams by the way, though you're lucky that they're out of the way sooner than most people's!

    Jesus. This was totally unexpected.

    RayApparently You've been a great Speaker. I hope you remain in the House.
    Thank you, I imagine I probably will.

    Just want to say that it was a pleasure working with you in trying to maintain order in the house. Being a speaker is not an easy job and there should be no doubt that your time in the job is something we should be thankful for. The best of luck with your upcoming exams! Perhaps we'll find you as an MP again after they're finished.
    It was a pleasure working with you too TF.

    Cheers!

    If there's a seat for me to fill at some point in the term then perhaps.

    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.

    It's a shame that you feel that way. I feel that you'd do a great job as Speaker, regardless of what 'generation' you are.

    To be fair you would have had one in a week and had one whilst I was gone. But as I wasn't here to make that argument I can hardly complain that it wasn't heeded.

    Thank you for the kind words, but I think that the House would probably prefer a different Speaker to myself and on that, I am in agreement

    Yeah, I was so shocked that I didn't think of the proper way to address this: RayApparently, I offer my commiserations and thank you for your work despite not supporting the motion myself. As I stated in the division lobby, it was a pragmatic decision rather than a personal one, and I hope you won't hold it against me.
    I'm not going to lie, I'm going to hold it against you ever so slightly. But I'll get over it.

    By the way, you'll have to remove me from your sub-forum - as a leader I can't do it myself and I'd like to go back to being a 1-party guy asap.

    I'm sure that Ray will confirm that the founding of the National Liberals has provided him with the perfect party to re-join.

    That's surely the only reason to have allowed them to form, anyway.

    I'll miss the liberal use of emoticons in the daily update.

    You have, all in all , set a high standard for all to future speakers to meet.
