    I think you're doing an absolutely fantastic job Jarred. A massive Aye from me.

    You're doing a fantastic job so far, Aye.

    Not sure why people have abstained on this, it's a yes/no question.

    It's either abstain or not turn out to vote which is an abstention in all but name. That's why people, including me, have chosen to register their abstention.

    Because it's a pointless vote and waste of time and Abstain is one better than not voting at all.

    Speakers have been brought down by one of these before. It's only pointless when things are going well, in an odd sort of way.

    VoNCs exist for a reason. That speaker would probably have been displaced through one if these didn't exist. It's an utterly pointless thing.

    Well aside from the fact the speaker was elected a matter of weeks ago.

    Aye. Although I didn't vote for Jarred in the election, I think he is doing a great job.
