The Speaker of the House of Commons is to make a statement to MPs at 1530 BST, amid growing calls for him to quit over his handling of the expenses furore.
Michael Martin has been urged to stand down by Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg while MPs from all parties have signed a motion of no confidence in him.
This comes after a week of damaging media revelations about MPs' expenses.
But Labour MP Sir Stuart Bell has said he expects Mr Martin to state he will remain in post until the next election.
This cannot happen. The Speaker needs to go and he needs to go now. Not only is the disgusting little shit utterly compromised by being right up to his eyeballs in some of the most outrageous expenses claims, and not only has he presided over the entire, corrupt system—he has actively blocked changes and conspired to conceal information from the public.
If the Speaker does not go now—if the MPs do not vote for Douglas Carswell's vote of no confidence—then we, the public, can only draw one conclusion: our MPs have no interest in reform, they have no interest in clearing up this mess.
We can conclude that our MPs consider this whole scandal to be a flash in the pan and that they fully expect to carry on their troughing ways once the public have been distracted by some other shiny, MSM-served bauble.
So, as far as your humble Devil is concerned, what happens this afternoon is crucial: if these greedy fuckers sack the Speaker, I shall give them the benefit of the doubt. If, however, they vote to keep the Chief Shit, then I shall conclude that they are still intent on feathering their own nests at our expense.
And that cannot be allowed.
