Margaret Wilson drinks the Poisoned Chalice

Margaret Wilson was elected as Speaker today despite being unsuited for the job as she has little house experience and little experience in arbitration for that matter. One wonders whether she will attempt to apply her labour relations theories to House business such as making people ask questions "in good faith"? I strongly suspect that when her performance becomes a joke, Helen will use it as an excuse to call for a snap election as she did in 2002 when the Alliance was in meltdown.
