    The last post thing isn't working because I presume it has been deleted – you might have seen the user HEAVYDaz spamming the place and I presume the ST have deleted some of his posts, including one in the Labour Q&A.

    I think the last post was deleted so you need to click the main link rather than the arrow to the last post.

    I've been binning some of the spam from earlier on. It's accessible but you'll need to click the thread title rather than the last page button.
    Cheers both!

    OK, I think he asked for it so far in advance that I didn't write it down at the time. I will get it set up for you tonight.

    Mr Speaker,

    The Acting Prime Minister's Conservative Party advertisement in his signature claims that it is endorsed by TSR blobbies. What I would like to know is if the TSR blobbies have actually given their endorsement to them. If the TSR blobbies have not given their endorsement, will the said party face disciplinary consequences for claiming that the TSR blobbies have endorsed them when they actually have not? If this behaviour goes unpunished, it sets a dangerous precedent, whereby parties will start claiming that so and so have endorsed them even though the person who the party claims to have endorsed them has not endorsed them, or has not given consent for their endorsement, verbal or otherwise, to appear in the party advertisement of the party which they have endorsed. The reason I am asking this is because I am genuinely concerned about the well being of the TSR blobbies and wish to check to ensure that they are not being exploited. I love the TSR blobbies - I have a great relationship with the TSR blobbies, and we have to ensure that their rights are upheld.

    I think you're referring to me, but:
    - I'm not, and never was the Acting Prime Minister
    - The real PM is back, and so no one is now Acting PM.

    Mr Speaker,

    Are there any requirements for standing as an independent MP at the next election?

    Just not being a member of a party – I am not aware of any experience requirements. If I were doing more than passing through the House tonight I would check and I will double-check for you tomorrow.

    I think you may need 100 posts and have been a member of TSR for over 3 months, as that's what you need to vote, though I'm sure Fez will confirm that or not.

    I have checked the Constitution and GD and there do not appear to be any restrictions – perhaps unsurprising given there are none to sit as an MP.

    Could you mention the vote of the Assisted Dying Bill in the written/bolded part of the update when it actually gets added to the Lobby? I assume the 'invalid thread' link is a problem with the suicide link (same reason my 'suicide can be rational' post got deleted).

    It's annoying they get rid of these kind of posts, because in the context of yours, that would've been an interesting read!

    It has been approved now, and I will include another link to it tonight.
