    Evening MPs,

    Today I was informed that The Mad Dog MP has committed an offence of wiki vandalism on our main wiki page. Unfortunately this vandalised content was in place on that page for a couple of weeks, but I can confirm that all of his changes have now been rolled back. I have looked through the rest of his wiki edits, and it seems that this page is the only one he vandalised.

    The main wiki page, whilst currently undergoing reconstruction, is an important source for new members and oft-used introduction source for new members, so vandalising it's content could have disadvantaged the affected parties for the entire duration that the content was up. Whilst I'm on the topic of this wiki page, could party leaders who have yet to send me their forum descriptions please do so when they get the time?

    Vandalism with malicious intent is unparliamentary and will not be tolerated. I have decided to re-enable the lock on this page to prevent it happening again, and I have also locked almost every other MHoC wiki page as a further security measure. I may relax the locks on some of these pages later on in the year.

    I will work with the Leader of the Opposition to decide what to do with The Mad Dog when he returns, however, had he been an MP at this very moment, he'd probably be facing a temporary suspension from the MP usergroup from me.

    What I have done in the meantime is informed the Section Leaders of the event who have informed me that wiki vandalism is taken quite seriously as an offence and they will deal with it accordingly, though naturally they are unable to give me any details of what this will entail.
    I've also decided to withdraw his motion, which would have otherwise entered cessation today.

    The vandalism was clearly done as a joke, but it was fairly hostile and politically motivated - and that isn't a good thing for atmosphere of this House. Feel free to hate your political rivals, but let it out in the discussion process through constructive means, don't do it via vandalism and leave Godwin's Law to other parts of the TSR community. We're better than that.

    I hereby commend this statement to the House. This session will be open for two days.

    It didn't seem politically motivated. It only happened to those who hadn't submitted anything, and to parties across the political spectrum. It wasn't like he went out and deleted people's entries or anything...

    I disagree.

    He's often stated his hatred of Labour and we know what he thinks of the right. The political malice is clearly there.

    I'd be quite happy for him to get a ban.

    He's an opinionated man. He's only just left the Socialists so a grudge there would be understandable. If he hates the right, there's the Libertarians or even the Liberals now they're not even democratic. It seems to me to be much more of a light-hearted poke at the failure of the parties to submit something for the page rather than political malice.

    While I think that he's a tosser for doing it, I think we should remember that he is a teenager with all of the hot headedness and immaturity that this brings. Not that this should render him immune from any punishment, but since he is currently unable to explain his actions we should not be conjecturing his motives.

    Really? Worse things have happened which never earned the perpetrators a ban.

    The only comparable incident i would say was Jpkc (this is not quite so bad) and i would have been quite happy to see him banned at the time.

    Perhaps though it's difficult to assess an adequate punishment given that this is an online forum. In RL my justice principal is quite simple which is that any kid of physical crime should be punished probably more severely than now, but non-violent probably more lenient than now (i would downgrade fraud for example).

    Sadly i never had a nanny, i have a heart warming narrative of destitution and aspiration which in a decade or so i hope the electorate would eat up. By then however i will have a nanny for my child by that time.

    Pretty sure the joke was that he is from a privileged background and therefore had a nanny/aupair but okay.

    Ban the Mad Dog permanently from holding an MP position. Destructive behaviour like that should be totally disallowed and should result in permanent exclusion. The same should be extended to JPKC for his past actions.

    It's appalling that Labour, the Tories, and UKIP have left their spaces empty for this long - I thank TMD for pointing this out.

    The mature response to this would be to prove him wrong.

    I'd like to ask: what action are you taking to spur the "dead" parties into activity? Don't you agree that their inactivity is more harmful to the House than silly, easily fixed, jockish wiki-graffiti?

    LOL, talk about an overreaction. And there wouldn't be a hint of bias in permanently banning our C1 and probably most active member for the last year over an action that's already been dealt with as soon as our party starts to do well, would there?
