    If we're going to have a reset, then why not have a proper reset? What major legislation has passed in the last few terms anyway?

    Great idea. When I wrote my manifesto, I often hesitated, as I wondered whether or not it had already been realised.

    I like the idea of a rolling reset. This would ensure change, but prevent bills from being debated all the time over and over again. I would suggest legislation remains in force for 3 parliaments.



    Handjobs for the blind?
    Hmmm, this has potential.

    Both, for sure.

    Too long have the disadvantaged in society been ignored - it's time we recognize they have needs too!

    I fully agree.

    I would love to see more made of the hypothetical situation I would also like to see newspapers; i.e. mod written stories that parties should respond to.

    It would definitely get my vote, although I think we need to think of other things besides just resetting legislation to attract new members.

    I have a slightly different preference: I'd like us to declare independence, form a separate country and start our entire legal system more or less from scratch.

    Do you think that we would be able to form anything other than anarchy or feudalism at most?

    We could always reset the legislation, keep our Westminster-style HoC and start a new separate nation from scratch :holmes:

    Do it. Paddy has covered all the main points. Stricof makes a good case for an election. :dumbells:

    Also, new party names. Or have I missed that debate? :emog:

    I was against at first, but I've been convinced by the arguments in here.

    One thing that springs to mind is that if the reset happens the older members might try to merely submit old bills.
    I mean there are some I think should be resubmitted, like my Millitary Hospitals Bill. However to avoid immedietly reverting back to our old legislation and our old ways, perhaps put a limit on how many old bills each party can re-submit to the house?
