A new Speaker is not enough

"Those parliamentarians yelling at [the Speaker] to get out now should also look to their own behaviour. Mr Martin did not compel honest MPs to strip bare Homebase and Harrods like a swarm of locusts. Far from being an officious overlord of greed, he was the emblem and, advertently or not, the facilitator of an odious culture from which too many of his colleagues gratefully benefited." —Mary Riddell
