After an honourable 10 years in post, John Bercow's resignation as Speaker of the House of Commons calls for a successor of comparable integrity.

Dennis Skinner has served as the Member of Parliament for Bolsover since 1970 and is the longest continuously serving Labour MP. He has been fearless in speaking truth to power (of whatever party), has no tolerance of pretensions and shows no sufferance of fools. His long parliamentary experience, his diligence in attendance and his respect for the responsibilities of his office qualify him uniquely for this important role, never more so than when representative parliamentary democracy is under attack from domestic interest groups and foreign lobbyists.

We have seen a memorable non-partisan regimen under the auspices of Speaker Bercow. The same might be anticipated for Speaker Skinner.
