    You were the obvious one I had pinned down. Nigel, Neb, Aph and Hazzer were all possibilities. I think I'm correct in saying Neb and Hazzer aren't standing, I'm not sure about Aph, and I believe Nigel is.

    I know someone in the Labour Party who is definitely standing but I will let them reveal themself when they are ready.

    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.
    So you do enjoy being Deputy Speaker, which is occasionally doing the boring part of the Speaker's job (just sending updates), yet you believe the House needs a youngster to drive it forward as the Speaker? I'd expect it to be vice versa.

    Even though the MEU under your supervision sucks (and that's putting it mildly)? I must say I'm surprised by your self-confidence!

    To be honest, I see the Deputy Speaker role as advising the Speaker and supporting him or her as best they can. The Speaker though is very much the person who has the ideas and drives the House forward in my experience - newer members have far fresher perspectives on this House than I do and are better suited to that aspect of the Speakership.

    The current sticking point is that the private sub forums or user groups are being held up by the powers above that be; but I am continuing to push!
    But I must say, we aren't creating our MHOC from scratch, we are building upon the 10 years of history and progress to make this house even better!

    I'm fine thanks and yeah still drama, but it's what gives this place its character and it's lured you back I see
    Aye, I still find myself checking in from time to time when there's changes to the Speakership. I like to see that it is in safe hands! I was going to look in on TSR Labour too, but I see I'm not a member anymore.

    Ah, so you enjoy whispering in the Speaker's ear, correct? That is something I can respect, actually, but I still think it's been too long and someone else should be given the chance to have a go without having to VoNC you first.

    toronto353 - in your final post in your Statement which you have now redirected here, what was your motivation behind not finishing the sentence with a full stop?

    I believe you are correct!

    UKIP appears to be a great starting place for future promotions within the house!
    I'll have you know the Liberals have had some great Speakers (I'm claiming Jarred too as he was a member of us last )

    What was your motivation behind not starting this post with a capital letter or putting a comma after 'Statement'?

    I was trying to emulate other members of this House. At least I know I have succeeded! I was wondering whether toronto's motivations were the same!
