    Hopefully there is going to be a great Political Satire section in this paper. I think we'd all love that.

    I would love the opportunity, if the rest of the House wants me to do it.

    I think you should because it was your idea and I think you'd do a great job. How can we formally decide this?

    Maybe wait a few days to just see if any more nominations pop up and then vote if they do.

    If no-one else shows an interest by Wednesday, I could put up a poll with a question along the lines of: "This Houses approves the choice of Birchington as Editor of the MHoC Newspaper".

    That would work.

    I think you'd be a great editor. I'm happy for you to lead this, I'm also willing to give you a hand.

    What do you think about my idea to use a Word Doc in Google Docs Birchington?

    No point. It'll have to shut down every time Labour get into power.

    What would be the benefit? I can hardly imagine getting more information than I get now by reading the forum.

    Well, we could have a cartoon/humour section plus, our important Private message notices can be put into their, we can have items/ideas from MPs and maybe have news from RL Parliament in London.

    There's lots of potential if people are willing to produce it.

    You can also put creating a decent newspaper onto your CV?

    There is plenty of humour on the Internet and it does not take much time to read the main web page of a serious British newspaper, possibly even watch BBC Parliament, however if Birchington wants to do it, there is no point in obstructing it, I agree, though I wonder how new the news will be, given the expected period of issuance.

    I would like to see it succeed after the last rather pitiful try so good luck!

    Thanks for the support guys! I have created an email address, where you can send content: tsrhocnews@gmail.com.

    I've also created a Dropbox account where you can access and store your contributions. I hope this will make contributing as easy as possible. To find this, just go to Dropbox.com and log on with email: tsrhocnews@gmail.com, and password: politics2012.

    I'm hoping to design it in a style similar to the 'i' newspaper - a mix of fact and fun without being too dull or long-winded.

    It can be distributed as a PDF once a month initially and hopefully more frequently if we have enough content.
