NB This vote was scheduled for some point in the first week of Parliament, at the latest Monday 2nd May. I have started this vote slightly earlier than Monday, since over 90% of MPs are now in the usergroup

And no proposer, clearly so unpopular that nobody is actually moving that he should take the chair.

Despite voting for him in the speakership i chose to abstain. While i have no issues with performance as such and don't object to forcing his deputy to actually do something, the fact that he's becoming almost unavailable for a month and originally wanted to push back an election somewhat makes me question the commitment and the latter was quite concerning.

As such, i don't regret my vote but neither would i regret him being replaced. He's created indifference i suppose.

I regret to say this because I've grown to like him personally but the recent month or two made me lose my confidence in Ray as the Speaker, mainly due to his clear lack of commitment. He's the first Speaker in six years who's physically available but lets the DS handle everything for extended periods of time. If we can do without him for months, why do we need him?

Care to rewrite it yourself then and show us how such a simple motion, should the speaker take the chair again, be elongated

The fact that Ray has been relatively inactive so far doesn't, to my eyes, mean that we should vote against this motion. All absences were explained in advance, and given the stress of exams, I'm perfectly fine with him taking some time off. Furthermore, toronto has registered no dissatisfaction with the state of things, so I implore the House to give Ray at least a short time longer - I say this despite the fact that I did not vote for him in the speakership election.

Exactly... you're already doing work for exams, so it shouldn't be too hard to add a little bit extra work onto that...

If you're already doing 8 hours work a day, adding an extra 30 mins is only 6.25% extra...
If it weren't exam season, and you were doing only 1 hour work a day, an extra 30 mins would be a whole 50% extra workload...

It's perfect timing!

Blaming exams for a lack of activity is an excuse that does not work because exams should boost activity as TSR becomes procrastination, or a break activity. During exam time I have TSR logged in all day which I check during my regular breaks, when I have free time in the evening, and I find myself spending more time on TSR. When exams are not taking place individuals tend to be out with friends, away from the house, or occupied with other hobbies, so exams make the TSR MHoC the most convenient thing to do during a revision break; Ray should have the time.
