    You like you want to get eaten alive lol. How dare you say such thing on this site lol.... you know them coming for you.
    Congrats at all. Seriously though why the Deputy Premier and Speaker of the House can’t be announced. It can’t be that difficult. Mr. Willock will be a great Speaker of the House.

    Hodge-Smith or Smith-Thompson could be Great Choices for Speak Of The House! Why not? They are very strong, decesive, unbiase and seemingly fair ladies.
