TREASON AND TERROISM (AMENDMENT) BILL 2017

A Bill to add to the punishments for individuals convicted for Treason and High Treason


BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

1 - Citation, Extent and Commencement

(1) This Act extends to the whole of the United Kingdom.
(2) This Act will come into force following Royal Assent.
(3) This Act will be cited as the Treason and Terroism (Amendment) Act 2016.

2: Amendment of Section 6

to be added:

(5) Any prisoner convicted will incurr a total loss of suffrage.

3: Amendment of Section 9

to be added:

(5) Any prisoner convicted will incurr a total loss of suffrage.

Notes

Show


Anyone convicted of such a heinous crime as Treason or High Treason does not deserve the right to vote. Currently in real life individuals convicted of Treason lose all suffrage apart from in local elections. This amendment introduces the loss of suffrage with no exceptions.

Ugly formatting and structure, pointless policy and can't spell 'terrorism' despite referring to a previous Act that uses the correct spelling in the title.

Is this a joke?

It's obviously an overlooked spelling mistake you plum, stop being so facetious.

Regarding the formatting, I wasn't aware that's what the point of the house was, to debate how things look. Would you like me to border my next bill with flowers to make it look pretty for you?

You can't vote from the dirt. Scrap this amendment and bring back the death penalty.

I assume this is a poor attempt to parody a libertarian bill, considering QQ is the seconder (despite you not even needing one.)

Difference being, we can actually spell.

Starting to think it's become soggy sauerkraut...

There's so little substantive content in this bill (and I did refer to the content) that there isn't much else to talk about except the obvious laziness of its writing.

It's not a parody bill at all mate.

QQ agreeing with decided he wanted to second it.

The spelling is obviously a lolz but if that's really what people would rather talk about, rather than the bill, then that's pathetic.

I agree with removing the right to vote of those convicted, however, all prisoners should be disenfranchised as part of their punishment.

You mean they should remain disenfranchised, or did I miss the left pushing through some legislation to enfranchise them?

Only for the duration of their punishment though. Once you've spent the conviction you're free to return to the civilized world.
