A no confidence motion in Brown's regime, conducted under Brown's placeman Speaker Martin is going to be much harder to win than a no confidence motion when Martin has been forced to resign and a decent and proper Speaker runs the Commons. What is more a debate and vote, whatever it is called formally, on Speaker Martin remaining in place, even if lost will of itself weaken Martin beyond recovery.
So any vote whatever on this Speaker will be resisted ad oltranza - for beyond that bitter end lies Brown's immediate demise. Everything that must be done to remove Brown, by his Party or by the Opposition or by both, which includes pulling down Speaker Martin, must be done at once - within hours, at most days. Time is running out for our known political world.
