    Ah my bad, it's humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
    Still for losers

    A lot of us really didn't expect this to happen...
    Given a significant portion of the right disapproved of Ray, or at least didn't approve much, and then a not insignificant number of Liberals and lefties also disapproved it isn't that surprising, I expect about half the right voted no, and I know of a few Liberals and Labour that voted against the motion.

    I think that most members just expected him to hold on.

    Self-important internet users swap forum titles in the land of make-believe.

    Not even The One Show would cover something so trivial.

    To be fair, with Jarred and Birch there was a lot of behind the scenes communication over a variety of issues that you didn't see - just because I'm not running the updates doesn't mean that I'm not involved in Speakership business at all.
    Pulling the strings behind?

    Wow. I never thought in a million years they'd get you thrown out.

    I am not voting for hazzer, his spelling and grammar is atrocious and imho he's not experienced enough for it. I'd support someone like ThatBeardedMan because of his experience, for example (hint hint )




    Well there's always the proper left-wingers over here y'know Ray
    Shoot us a PM
    And you are ? :confused:

    I don't think it's even that. We ideally need someone who isn't too opinionated to run for Speakership.

    Let me rephrase this. A Speaker needs to remain politically neutral.
