Well as the Queen hasn't been Queen of England for over 300 years I can't imagine she would be able to any more than previously.

No, she won't retain the land she owns although I believe (TBM might correct me on this) she will be provided a modest residence.

Please let me interject. This should be renamed to "We just abolished the monarchy via the backdoor despite over 70% of you wanting to keep it in a referendum less than two years ago (we still want your vote in the upcoming GE though), ask us anything."

Yes people, they really did do the above.

two years in the MHoC is 16-20 years in real life.
People join TSR for UCAS applications and then leave, a entirely different set of people

Few people join and then leave but if we are using the technicality of TSR time in comparison to real time we should use the technicality of the commencement date voiding the bill.

The fact is you ignored the will of 70% to satisfy your ideology.

I am using the fact a Parliamentary Term in TSR is 6 months not 4-5 years as in real life.

A referendum from 4 terms ago is not binding on anyone

The fact is something radical was done and this is a chance for the public to engage with TSR MP's.

O133 is correct, we have reclaimed some land but she still retains some of her properties to live in comfort.

I have a question, who keeps track of all the stuff you guys decide on?

Since nothing actually happens, how can you know if any policy was good or not, doesn't it make everything you say for/against any policy somewhat arbitrary?

Does the government feel that it's policy of simply stealing whatever it wants from lawful owners would play well in the financial markets of the world? Does the left have any grounding in reality, or is the consequence free zone of TSR the only place where socialism can function?

We have a HOC Hansard which lists all Bills presented and whether they pass or not. Bear in mind that most of the older stuff was repealed, with those which are still valid being from the more recent Parliaments

All of the law in force in the MHoC is collated here.

No, it's obviously impossible to tell if a policy has worked well or badly, so all of the debate is theoretical.

Policies are recorded in Hansard.


The 2nd Q doesn't make sense though. The RL HoC constantly debates laws that haven't been implemented yet. That's the point.

We have essentially an archive of all the past documents we have created

That is a annoying issue that nobody can ever solve, particularly around financial legislation. Most of the time we just go with the figures provided as long as they make some sense.
