M294 - Santa Clause Inc. Sanction Motion, The Rt. Hon. Kittiara MPThis House acknowledges that for the last century, magically-abled humanoids, commonly known as elves, have lived in isolation on the North Pole and have been subjected to sweatshop conditions, making toys for the world's children. Only offered food, hot chocolate and shelter, no wages, they work long hours, especially in the run-up to Christmas.

This House recognises the importance of not only a minimum wage, but a living wage, which permits human beings (and humanoids) to participate in our consumer society. The importance of this participation was highlighted by the overwhelming success of the Black Friday sales, during which many of our constituents expressed their desire to bolster the economy.

This House also strongly opposes slavery, and encourages the freedom of movement including to and from the North Pole, which could be considered a future candidate for EU membership.

Therefore, this House proposes the placement of a sanction on all North Pole items produced by Santa Clause Inc. until such a time when Santa Clause Inc. passes an international inspection ensuring fair rights and working conditions for its employees. In the meanwhile, an awareness campaign should be run, encouraging consumers to instead supply their children with products produced in the British Republic, or in reputable countries such as China, Indonesia and Bangladesh.

Nay.
If Santa doesn't keep his slavery system going, poor children won't get any presents on Christmas an will have to forever watch as the rich buy lots of cool toys and show off their happy Christmas.
Therefore, you're promoting social inequality, violence and lowering of human life quality.

Agreed. If we'll be proposing motions about Santa they better be effective.

Wait, wait, wait.
We're accusing Santa of not giving proper work conditions but granting such a classification to China?
You guys must live in a parallel universe.

It is a sad state of affairs when the government openly support a ridiculous motion and they deny the people of Britain to save billions of pounds every year. It appears that only UKIP actually care about the United Kingdom.

It appears only UKIP could claim a few MPs voting for a joke motion means they don't care about anything else.

So the green party now thinks that Slave labour wages and horrific living conditions make a country 'reputable'.

These socialists seem to be confused.

Can i confirm that the green party does indeed support slave labour wages?

It may be a joke motion, but the way it doesn't make any sense makes it a bad joke motion. Yet, you deny it because... well, it was proposed by the left, so should be accepted, right?

We also have some joke motions, but I'm sure there will be crying all over the place if we announce it.

It's a joke. It made me laugh. Seriously, not everything is a conspiracy with corrupt lefties who just hate everyone else. It wouldn't have made any difference to me if it had been proposed by you or nebelbon instead!

Considering those countries listed as being reputable are prone for late-payment, no-payment, pay based on productivity, barely £2000 per year for low-paid factory workers, few employment rights, food inflation regularly outstripping wage increases, and minimum wage in some areas less that £1200 per year. I would rather be an elf working in the Lapland. If a bill is going to be a joke bill at least add in some realities.
