    Soggy, I think you need to make your jokes a bit more overt for this crowd.

    I was'nt sure if this was a joke bill or not but if not then my thoughts are summed up below..



    Most of the people who use food banks are referred their due to sanctions and the like. It's not a matter that people are finding food too expensive but rather that they don't have enough money.

    The idea that the state will just steal grain though is absurd. To quote an old Libertarian on here.. Stop molesting business!

    Regardless of whether this is a joke bill or not, i'm far more alarmed that you've allowed extremists who would support stealing private property into your party. The blob it seems is very real.

    SC showed us a draft in sub-forum, every Labour member who expresses support knows how unserious it is.

    UKIP's the only party that regularly release bills where the seriousness is in doubt.

    I hugely disagree over the idea to requisite grain and think the whole bill is just too extreme. There's too much interference over dealing grain from farmers and quite frankly I feel this bill is a complete joke. Sorry but it really does sound extreme.

    Don't worry guys it was a joke bill, I didn't think it warranted putting that fact in the notes as I thought everyone would flat out reject it, obviously I should have done.

    When I saw you were the author I thought it couldn't not be a joke I just decided to treat it as serious so that people didn't think I thought this was fundamentally a bad idea

    I definitely don't think this is a good idea. It's pretty much a communist suggestion, and we all know that extreme ideologies destroy societies. Plus I don't see how this would benefit society; by confiscating grain from farmers we're simply dragging them below the poverty line too.

    It doesn't necessarily drag them below the poverty line, just pushes them to another product

    Everyone seems to be have missed the bit where it says the farmers would be paid for the grain..
