    And your point is ? That didn't stop me running last time . remind the house who came fourth ?
    you don't need to be defensive or attack me just because you are upset. It has nothing to do with this and you know it

    you were attacking my performance and that of Dc for simply stating your opinions. you need to learn to take comments and criticism without turning it back on others because that helps no one.

    This is a tremendous shame. Ray has done an excellent job as Speaker and I'm very surprised the House has decided to vote to remove him.

    I look forward to seeing who stands. There is currently only a small handful of people I would trust to maintain high standards as Speaker.

    Being absent more than present over many months is an excellent job, what's a bad job then?

    The House hasn't crashed and burned, it has remained active. Updates have been sent on a regular, nightly basis. Key duties have been performed as normal, whether by Ray or Toronto. These 3 tasks above were for me the most important duties as Speaker - I feel Ray, supported by Toronto when required, has done his best to ensure these tasks were fulfilled. That in my eyes has made his Speakership as successful as possible.

    Let's cast our eyes back to Faland, who actually did a disappearing act and did not send updates or even liaise with Toronto during his long-term absences. Ray's absences haven't been anywhere near as critical to the operation of the House, and for that reason it does seem a little harsh to get rid of him.

    And you are ? :confused:
    Of course not, but I'm not even considering the notion of running for Speakership.

    I don't mean any offence but it's a very big job and I don't think anyone who's been here less than 2 years and/or never been in a senior MHoC position should be Speaker. I'd probably vote for Rakas over one of the newer leftists if it ever came to that.

    SO basically Ray was excellent because Toronto did everything...

    I understand that and no offence was taken

    I'm just making the point that my experience didn't stop me running for speaker last time

    As far as I'm concerned, they worked as an effective team to get things done. Will you be standing?
