Wilson to retire

Labour's renewal continues, with Speaker of the House Margaret Wilson announcing that she will retire at the next election. She's done nine years in Parliament as well as three years as Speaker, which ought to be enough to make anyone thoroughly sick of both. And after the way she's been consistently treated by National's more misogynist MPs (who seem to have a real problem with a woman in the Speaker's chair), then who can blame her?
