The Referee

It appears there is a move to replace the Speaker of the House of Commons. Lots of people have contacted me urging me to support/oppose such a move. My view is clear. MP’s elect a Speaker at the start of a Parliament and my view is that the MP so elected has the job for that Parliament unless they choose to leave earlier. I see the role of the Speaker like that of a referee in a football match. The referee has to make lots of decisions and one side or the other will be disappointed, upset even. We should not be changing the referee just because there have been some decisions some MP’s would have reached a different conclusion on.
