Antomio Banderas chosen as speaker for Holy Week 2011

The governing body of the Málaga Association of Brotherhoods and Guilds (Agrupación de Cofradías de Málaga) has elected José Antonio Domínguez Bandera (Antonio Banderas) as speaker (pregonero) during Holy Week in 2011, an appointment approved by the Bishop of Málaga, Jesús Catalá.

Clinging to his perks

Obviously no chance of confusing the words ‘speaker’ and ‘orator’.

Someone is extracting the wee

The Speaker of the House of Commons, Michael Martin, has apparently agreed to quit his post, but wants to stay on as an MP until the next election, in a year’s time, so as to safeguard his £100,000 pay and perks and help his son Paul to ‘inherit’ his Glasgow constituency seat.
