    We have two bills currently in the works that will be submitted shortly.
    Cool, anyone want to give a spicy taster of what's to come (even just the overall topic), or are we to be kept in the dark until the first is submitted?

    One is the workers' income guarantee bill that is a drastic overhaul of the benefits system, the other officially gives prisoners the vote (a relatively short one compared to the first.)

    We also have a petition "free kekistan" that may or may not be serious.

    Haha, already sense that there's going to be lots of opposition to both of those! Will definitely be very interesting to see them in the House when they're posted though :yy:

    Just so you know, the first one of those is likely to come out of the government relatively soon.

    The second one has been done. It took two attempts, faced impassioned opposition from the member's opposite and was the product of a long campaign. Indeed it is the principles inshrined in this bill that certain members are now trying to attack.

    I see, _gcx, it seems your bill has already been done.

    Our suggested reforms, I would imagine, are quite different. We are suggesting radical benefit cuts and replacement of a wide variety of payments, I assume you would be increasing welfare payments?

    I am aware of that bill. I realised that it overlapped, so I'm changing it to an amendment.

    An amendment amends the GD or constitution, so it affects the way the House is run, rather than the hypothetical House of Commons in the hypothetical country we legislate for. If this was previously a prisoners' votes bill, are you sure that's what you want to do?

    To clarify, I meant an amendment to that bill. (amendment bill)

    I agree that it is a great bill, and I can safely say that my bill would have been nothing compared to it.

    The amendments wouldn't be major (the insertion of a few lines at most), and I'm debating what to include within them. (the necessity more so)

    I'll be interested to see what you suggest. Though I am very satisfied with the status quo.

    You should join the Liberals, they like to pretend A levels means that they have absolutely no free time while those doing degrees and working do.
