    So much potential yet such a disappointment :sad:

    I had high hopes when I saw it was by the Monster Raving Loony Party

    Any suggestions for improvements? This is the first reading after all, the aim is to take a draft, unpolished bill and turn it into something sillier better.

    Well I'm torn on whether I want you to be sillier or more piercing in your critique of the parties. On the one hand, more references to placenta sandwiches and tea drinking, but on the other, reference to short termist Lib Dem-ism (oh, look, I agree with Adorno) or the vast glut of parties we have that theoretically represent the same thing.

    It is sadly true that even in political comedy there are uncomfortable compromises. Art imitating life? Frankly after the last government bill it seems somewhat life imitating art imitating life, with each stage getting progressively sillier.

    1)a) as unfeasible. A parliamentary term lasts 6 months, while labour takes 9. This still isn't feasable however as this is the term of labour for femal homo sapien sapiens, not political parties which take much longer.
    Not necessarily, as per TSR MHoC rules a party can be founded almost immediately provided it had 10 people willing to join with 150+ posts. Therefore it would be entirely possible for the TSR Labour party to produce an offspring within the period of 6 months.


    An Aye of course from me.

    Some animals have pregnancy's that last 6 months or less, like House mice (I think). Therefore I suggest we repopulate all TSR MHoC parties with housemice, and replace the speaker with a cat.

    No - this is a bad attempt at a funny bill. Come on MRLP, you're better than this.
