Speaker’s to step down on 21st June 2009

Speaker Martin, in a statement to the House of Commons, announced that he will be relinquishing his role as Speaker on 21st June 2009 and that a new Speaker would be elected on 22nd June 2009.

One down, 100s to go …

Watch his speech.

There was a failed attempt to oust Speaker Martin last year when he blocked a Freedom of Information request for full details of MPs’ expenses.

Douglas Carswell, the hero in this piece, led a fearless, unprecedented campaign to rid the House of the Speaker and to clean up politics – and he won.
