What he thinks should happen after the Easter recess in terms of holding the Government to account. He’s right isn’t he?

Too much of the business of Parliament was put on hold during the Brexit débacle and while nothing at the moment is more important than beating the Coronavirus and restoring the country to what ever normality is possible , life has to go on and that includes government by parliament not by edict.

By golly I like that Lindsay Hoyle! He seems so sensible and down to earth.

I’m surprised it hasn’t had more discussion and coverage. I know Hoyle is a very different kettle of fish from Bercow but I do wonder if a stronger personality might have made a bit more of a fuss about this? But I do realise it’s probably hard to break it into the MSM coverage when we need to discuss footballers taking a pay cut and which latest Z list celebrity thinks they have symptoms.
