    P36 - Petition: Free to air sporting events and contests, barnetlad
    A petition to the House to ask that they express support for Jeremy Paxman for being probably the first tv national news presenter to have a beard, and that he should ignore all the criticism and negative comments. The House is asked that in a country that seems to tolerate such 'fashion' as leggings, Simon Cowell style trousers and visible underwear, a stylish beard as seen on Mr Paxman, Brian Blessed and David Bellamy should be applauded.

    To support Mr Paxman the House is asked to add University Challenge to the protected list of sporting events and contests that can only be shown on free to air tv.

    He's MRLP. Serious submissions would be a betrayal of the voting public.

    Oh, yes, I forgot about that. What a waste of time.
