    I believe you will be arranging my powers and and other such good and bad nonsense so I can work out my 5 year plans.

    Yep. I made the request last night, so they should be sorted at some point this morning.

    For now though, I've updated the relevant parts of the wiki and the Newbie FAQ. :yy:

    You basically don't have to do anything as DSG - much like deputy speaker. However, you can add this to the very long list of things you don't understand
    You admitted in the MUN that you had neglected your duties for some time and then resigned after not doing anything for a very long time... Does not sound like you fought that at the time does it. But be rude deflect with humour and generally carry on being rude and immature about it.

    This was your chance to prove you have turned a corner, but I guess not... I don't think you should be speaking to me like that if you want to be a Speaker of the house, it is just damn right rude and fails to address anything.

    I don't think you should accuse anyone else of being rude or immature.

    I have answered the first part of your post many times and I will talk to you absolutely any way I choose to and you can react as you see fit. There is a long list of things you have proven you don't understand over your time here and it tends to get longer every time you post. I consider this to be a fact (as do most other people) and have absolutely no problem letting you know that. I will remain politically neutral but if an individual such as yourself gives me reason to comment then I personally have no problem doing that. I don't have to prove anything and certainly not to the likes of you. There is, as far as I'm concerned, nothing to address. You are free to question whether or not I am right for the role and I am free to disregard your opinion because I don't respect you enough to value it. It isn't about being rude it is about being honest and as you have shown persistently that you lack either the ability or the motivation to listen to the opinions of others I have no interest in talking to you in any way beyond fulfilling my duties as Speaker. On that note if you have and reasonable questions to ask then feel free to ask in the Ask the Speaker thread.

    Have a nice day.

    I don't imagine myself running for the Speakership again. I think that I'd much rather remain in TSR UKIP now.

    Well it's sort of why I was happy with the result either way because I was torn before entering the election about not bothering and staying with TSR UKIP so I win either way. If I won this, then I would be Speaker. If I didn't, I would remain leader. It was win-win and that's why there's no hard feelings - well that and the fact that I'd have probably been a poor Speaker anyway.

    Ah well, it's all part of hypothetical history now. Good luck and I'm sure that we'll clash many a time.

    Probably. But then I will just edit all of your posts to say "I love Paddy 4evaneva".
