Speaker Martin Embarrasses Himself Further
Labour MP David Winnick has this afternoon raised a point of order asking the Speaker to apologise to Kate Hoey for his attack on her yesterday. In his typically graceless style, Michael Martin refused to even countenance the issue and said that things had moved on from yesterday. Winnick tried to speak again but was slapped down and told: "You know what you must do". Yes, he should sign Douglas Carswell's no confidence motion.
