    Also, based on what you say in the Spoiler, you do realise this would have absolutely no practical effect in the MHoC, so the spoiler bit is redundant.

    Prohibition for the TSR nation.

    We should encourage new members by offering a safe space from the damaging effects of drugs and alcohol. The Tory DL himself condones this abuse.

    Vote aye for a safer TSR.

    Kinda funny that you're mocking the right, but at the same time inadvertently mocking the left's penchant for censorship.
