    There's been a proposal from Birchington to start up a HoC Newspaper and so as requested, I'm starting this thread to progress the idea further.

    I'll be watching with interest, and I hope we can make a go of it!

    Design Editor:

    I say we include a representative from each party - they have column, say what they are up to and things like that.

    I was just thinking this.

    It's been done before and many people pledged to write articles, but didn't unfortunately (though not necessarily the same people as here). I'm not saying that it won't work, but I'm sceptical about it and so won't be volunteering for this first issue, but I'll wait to see how it goes.

    Perhaps we could have different rep from the party each month/week however often its done. People could submit questions about that dept which would be answered in the column maybe?

    That would be good to keep each party involved and active too (hopefully).

    Of course by "each party" you also mean independents.

    They should be only optional, so if you wish to write an article, be my guest

    I'm struggling to see the purpose of it. Does it have a goal? Is it to inform? Entertain? Proletyse to the unwashed masses thus far uninvolved? I think we need to decide that before working out whether it's 1) desirable 2) anyone wants to do it and 3) any of the practical questions that've been raised.

    For example, I scarcely see the point of a paper to inform. The only people that'd read it are those that already know.

    In that case its primary function would be to provide opinion, arguments and the like. Informing people of the contemporary debates as a way of saving them time.

    It could also include an element of speculation/rumour. RL parliament has Guido to keep it on its toes.

    Yes I agree with that entirely. As I've said above, it's been done before and didn't work. I don't understand why it will work now. I'm sceptical about it, but if it works, then I may also write for it if allowed. Until it looks viable though, I'm not going to do so though.

    Maybe if no one is keen for an official newspaper, maybe we can just have a weekly locked news thread going out on a Monday morning. MPs can PM the chosen Editor beforehand then the Editor can compile all of the notices into one forum thread?

    I'd be very interested in writing a column for the newspaper if this project goes ahead. I'll subscribe to this thread and see if the idea takes off.

    Have one member from each party say why their policies are better etc. And have a debate section in the newspaper, with a summary at the end of the debate etc.

    Get everyone reading it, not just the party members

    Lol have a political horoscope *joke*.
