What do you think.
Keneth Clark was nominated for this post because he was the Father of the house and a gentleman.
This maybe true but I believe Dennis Skinner has also been an MP since 1970 and the difference between the two was that Clark signed the oath first.
Now if Clark was not interested in taking the position surely it should be Dennis Skinner that should be nominated.
I can see it all now. The new prime Minister will be Dennis Skinner.
I could imagine a loud cheer in the house of commons if Denis got the job.
49 years as an MP is a long time. Not the most popular PM in the house of commons but one who has served his constituency well.
