Somebody should be sacked over the Damian Green affair, of course.
Most obviously, and I write this as a very strong supporter of the Police, that needs to be somebody inside the Met, which has clearly decided to go after the party of the politician who has driven its Commissioner (however ill-liked, he was one of their own) from his job, and to avenge its own self-humiliation when it failed to have charges brought over the flagrant sale of seats in our very legislature.
It must not be Mr Speaker Martin.
Yes, he is everything that New Labourites of all parties disdain: economically left-wing, morally and socially conservative, orthodox Catholic, working-class, from the Heartland (the Midlands, the North, the Scottish Lowlands, Wales in general and South Wales in particular) that is now infuriating them even further by returning to economic pre-eminence, committed to traditional parliamentary procedures and to the purposes behind them, undoubtedly very sceptical about European federalism (within American hegemony and globalisation) on the one hand and the break-up of the United Kingdom (into bits all the more easily handed over to the European superstate, the American hyperpower and global capital) on the other.
And yes, he has probably been put at a disadvantage in this case.
But if he goes, then that is the end for everyone who is any one or more of economically left-wing, morally and socially conservative, orthodox Catholic, working-class, from the Heartland, committed to traditional parliamentary procedures and to the purposes behind them, and sceptical about European federalism on the one hand and the break-up of the United Kingdom on the other.
Save Michael Martin.
