Nick Clegg: Speaker must go

Watch here.

Nick Clegg has become the first party leader to state publicly that the Speaker of the House, Michael Martin, should stand down in the wake of the expenses scandal.

He is certainly the first main party leader in decades to call for a Speaker of the House to resign. I can now not see a way that Michael Martin can stay in the role, given the collapse of confidence he has seen. 

My money is on that he will have resigned by the end of the day on Monday.
