As we approach relaunch no. 1067 for our embattled PM it's time to reflect on his statement to the PLP that he would change the way he does government.
Today sees the election of a new speaker, this is traditionally a free vote for members of all partys but it comes as no surprise to discover that a labour whipping operation to get Margaret Beckett installed is taking place. A leopard never changes its spots.
Since Frank Field has bowed out the only two candidates I would personally be happy to see as speaker are Young and Haslehurst.
