    As a point of order if this amendment does not pass with a sufficient majority to amend the Constitution then I will consider it to have failed in its entirety such that there isn't the irritating contradiction that could potentially arise if the GD is amended but not the Constitution.

    40 voting robots is bad enough without adding 10 more.

    I believe everyone should be given the chance to become an MP.

    Labour do not exclude anyone. I am talking about the people who joinva random party and leave after a few weeks because they simply cannot become an MP.

    Every party member is given a chance to be an MP though. It's down to the party to select them.

    That's because the seats are occupied, much like the new 10 should be

    Nay. This is worth being discussed and voted on (hence lending my name to it), but I do not support it.

    I happen to have known the individual in question personally for the last ten years and I can assure you he isn't slow, he just tends to take things literally.
