As far as I know, 'Red' Dawn Primarolo is the only woman to put herself forward in the election for three Deputy Speakers tomorrow, so even if she comes bottom of the ballot she will triumph. Nice, eh? And what a reward for one of the worst performing ex Labour ministers.
One of the other positions, the chief Deputy Speaker will also go to a Labour MP, with the Conservatives guranteed only one position on the basis that the Speaker is also a Conservative. Vying for the position will be Nigel Evans, Roger Gale and Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, although I don't think nominations have closed yet.
Nigel Evans is popular with Labour MPs and would certainly be an entertaining choice, while Roger Gale has built up a good reputation on the Speaker's Panel. Geoffrey Clifton-Brown is a popular MP but doesn't really have a USP in this election.
The Labour MPs fighting for the non-female position are Lindsay Hoyle, Tom Clarke, Marsha Singh, George Howarth and Tom Clarke. Lindsay Hoyle seems to be attracting the hot money, but it's difficult to predict who will come through.
UPDATE: Dods are hosting a hustings for the deputy speaker roles this evening between 17:00- 18:00. All MPs have been invited to attend this event. They have 7 nominees confirmed (Marsha has said that he is standing but does not want to attend the hustings: UPDATE-he is now attending) and around 50 MPs confirmed.
UPDATE: I understand that Sir Ming Campbell is heading Nigel Evans's list of nominators.
