    Thanks – fixed.

    Who will vote for him and the other candidates? The same bunch of crooks that got rid of the last one. What a pointless excercise.

    Having a Lib Dem as the next speaker makes a lot of good sense considering the the party’s position on constitutional reform & its reform which parliament needs.

    However I’m surprised none of the bloogers here have actualliy sketched out any ideas as to how that reform should take shape.

    Alan would be an excellent speaker but this would be a great blow to the people in the queue for his seat in Berwick as it would encourage him to stay in the Commons for longer – it would also remove a very large orange blob from electoral maps.

    [PhD Nutrition] Pharma Whey: I agree completely with Mike. Strawberry tastes odd, it has a very bitter edge when used with water, for no apparent reason. Maybe some of their extra chemicals are giving it a harsh after-taste. Tastes better with milk, but not fantastic. The strawberry y does froth up loads after 5 seconds of shaking. You have to wait a while for it to settle before you can drink it like a normal shake. Try Boditronics Express Whey in chocolate. It s not amazing, but it s very easy to drink and mixes well.
