Message to Michael Martin, Speaker of the House of Commons : You've had a good run. Now, Resign!

Our message today to the now completely discredited Mr Michael Martin, Speaker of the House of Commons, is short, sweet and straight to the point.

As an alleged man of "honour" you should set a good example. Moreover, you should be seen by all & sundry, to set such an example.

How someone so inept has managed to stay as Speaker for so long can only be a result of "friends in high places". I've seen him twice recently on tv and on both occasions he was reading a prepared statement. He had difficulty reading, so how can he be a Speaker?
It seems the game is finally up.
