Speaker: Sorry... but that's it.

Obviously I gave him more credit than I should have.

What a farcical scene in the House of Commons. His statement was fine... but he let Members walk all over him with Points of Order which turned into a bash-the-Speaker-athon. MP after MP lined up to kick him, and he didn't get it. He's planning a meeting with party leaders to solve the crisis but doesn't realise that he has lost the confidence of MPs.

We need the debate, and we need it now. His time is over.

He's passed the buck to the PM to call the motion. Gordon Brown might want him to stay, but he's in a tough situation. It's either effectively sack the Speaker or call an election.
