    The majority of rail users do not have monthly season tivkets or annual ones so would have benefited or been no worse off under the Bill, No established church benefits the majority of people who are of another Christian tradition or another faith or none.
    So you're saying that the majority of commuters do not have monthly or season tickets? And how does no established church benefit anybody, in exactly the same way that having one doesn't benefit anybody.

    I thought it was supposed to be the right that's stuck in the past saying "this is how it was, this is how it should be!"

    Saracen's Fez The MHoC is stuck in the past by continuing to accept poor quality motions on the excuse it happened in earlier Parliaments. That may be true, but I want to see the MHoC changed to take the context of modelling Parliament seriously, not continue to accept the failures of yesterday while praising people for terrible motions.
    The point being that everyone then was happy to debate these things for what they were, realising that length of motion does not correlate with quality of debate, and indeed virtually everyone else bar you two is still quite content to do that. Could I perhaps suggest that if you two are so obsessed with having such a serious model of Parliament that you find another corner of the internet in which to build it?

    I wasn't going to say but I will. It is these kinds posts that are seriously putting me off this place. Can you just take your squabbles and post them elsewhere?

    The purpose of a motion is surely to test the waters on certain policy matters without going to the effort of writing a full Bill.

    The purpose of a motion is to ask the government to do something.

    Yeah I've read that, but I don't see why that should be the case, and I'd argue that convention dictates otherwise.
