    V762 - Great Repeal Bill 2015, O133 MP

    Great Repeal Bill 2015
    An Act resetting the Model House of Commons for the next Parliamentary terms.

    BE IT ENACTED IN ACCORDANCE with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

    1: Items Repealed
    (1) All other Acts produced by the Model House of Commons before the 20th Parliament and still in effect on the date of commencement of this Act shall be repealed.
    (2) Amendments and statements of intent shall not be repealed.

    2: Real-Life Acts Effective in the Model House of Commons
    (1) Real-life Acts passed before the date of commencement of this Act will be effective in the Model House of Commons.
    (2) Real-life Acts passed after the date of commencement of this Act will not be effective in the Model House of Commons until after the following real-life general election.

    3: Commencement, Short Title and Extent
    (1) This Act may be cited as the Great Repeal Act 2015.
    (2) This bill shall extend to Great Britain and Northern Ireland; and
    (3) Shall come into force on 7th of May 2015.



    Notes
    Activity in the MHoC has dropped again in the last couple of weeks, and arguably we're getting to the point where the ideas are beginning to dry up.

    This bill would effect a great repeal. The end of the term is obviously be the ideal time to do this as there will also be a new parliamentary term in RL, providing a cut-off point before which RL laws are effective in the MHoC.

    A clean slate would also be a real incentive to win this next election.

    I'm torn on this, on one hand it may increase activity however it does also remove all the work that people have done.

    We'd also have to adapt our manifesto...

    Wouldn't this automatically increase the deficit by £60 billion to match the RL situation?

    For anybody voting Aye there's just no compelling reason why you should, not least when half of you don't create bills. As somebody that has created a lot of stuff my thoughts are simple..

    But there's an arguement to say that most of the people arround then had been around at the start, we have had a changing of the guard since then and I do write a lot of stuff.

    I also revised someone else's vote to No at the same time.

    (The Bearded Man changed to a 'No' Vote.)

    Would I be able to request that when a vote is changed you make a public post confirming as such? Since voting is public it should be a matter of record how each MP has cast their vote

    I can see the arguments for both sides, and have changed my mind on four occasions.

    It certainly seems like a fitting way to mark the 10th anniversary of the House, and would help people by giving more room for legislation that has a bit of bite. It would, of course, restore the monarchy, which was the corner stone piece of legislation for the Socialists in government in parliament XIX. However, I have convinced myself that that is a small price to pay for what, overall, could be a great gain for the House.

    However, as I am most likely leaving the House at the end of this term, I feel it is only fair that I abstain from voting.

    With that Mr. Speaker, could I please change my vote from Nay to Abstain.
