Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Sir Teddy Taylor MP
It's not my habit to write letters of this sort,
but I was genuinely shocked and horrified to read that certain
MPs had placed bets at 20:1 on Mr Martin to become Speaker and
had then proceeded to vote for him.
Is this not wholly and completely wrong and will
it not further cheapen and degrade the standing of MPs?
