United Kingdom

The Speaker has seriously underestimated the public mood on MPs' expenses of which he has been accused of impropriety himself and seems more concerned about the leaks that brought the matter into the open, than the abuse of taxpayers money.

He should resign immediately rather than devalue the office of Speaker of the House any further.

I petition that Michael John Martin should resign as Speaker of the House of Commons.

He has done nothing to prevent the scandal of unwarranted expenses by Members of Parliament developing and worried more about the leaks than the dishonesty of their claims.
