    VA164 – Crisis Committee Amendment
    Proposed by: Nigel Farage MEP MP (UKIP)
    Seconded by: adam9317 MP (Con), Jammy Duel MP (Con), mobbsy91 MP (Con), Unown Uzer MP (UKIP)

    Amendment to the Constitution

    Section 13 Crisis Committee will be removed from the Constitution.

    Amendment to the Guidance Document

    Section 16 Crisis Committee will be removed from the Guidance Document.

    Notes


    When this amendment was first published members used the argument the Crisis Committee should be given one chance, or its existence is fine because the Crisis Committee is not detracting from the game, however, things have changed. The Crisis Committee has been given a final chance but the Crisis Committee failed by not publishing a sensible crisis.

    If the Crisis Committee should be allowed to sit idle for a small group of members to enjoy, the National Liberal Party should have been allowed to sit idle. If the National Liberal Party was rightly closed for inactivity, the Crisis Committee should be closed for its inactivity by failing to produce a reasonable crisis.

    The biased Speaker give the Crisis Committee a new chance after the second amendment failed, however, that chance was squandered on silly crises about the Prime Minister's rectum. The most active members in the MHoC are not drawn to the Crisis Committee, the members in the Crisis Committee are smaller members who do not contribute much, they are the members who are not highly active, struggle to debate, and promise so much but deliver nothing. Time is up, the Crisis Committee needs to close to put a rest to a failed idea no members are interested in.

    I've voted nay as a matter of principle; however, I wouldn't be upset if this passed.

    This amendment should not have been allowed to be released into the House and I would urge you to vote against it.

    If the pendents in the MHoC cause this amendment to fail, please re-post this amendment at the earliest possible date next term for the same debate to take place for the fourth time.

    No, because I'd actually like to see the CC continue rather than as a protest to this amendment going up.
