‘I support the ‘office’ of the Speaker’
– I’m too frightened of the whips to say so openly, but I wish someone braver than me would boot Michael Martin out – he got us into this mess.
‘I am repaying the money’
– Actually I’m putting it back in the Fees Office trough I got it from and will reapply as soon as this is all over. Oink, Oink.
‘I am resigning my job’.
– Only the second job – I will still be an MP, still have all my allowances, still have my snout in the trough.
