MHoC Awards for Parliament XIV



Rakas has asked me to do this, so here it is.

The awards will be the same seven as last time:

1) Debater of the Parliament
The member whose sheer wit and dazzling persuasion have left you in absolute awe.

2) Newbie of the Parliament
A member who, though unheard of six months ago, has made the best impression since then.

3) Award for Best Legislation
A showstopping tract of legalese that made you go all weak at the knees.

4) Comedian of the Parliament
Awarded to the wittiest member whose contributions always give the House a few lighter moments.

5) Drunkard of the Commons Bar
The MHoC's resident drink lover who can do a superb Eric Joyce impression.

6) Mr/Ms Congeniality
The nicest member of the House.

7) The Speaker's Award (Order of Disraeli)
An honorary award for the member who's most caught Rakas' eye during the 23rd Parliament.






The first 6 of these are awarded by popular vote of MPs. People can nominate one another for these awards by PMing Rakas before 7pm on Saturday 5 August, when voting will begin.



Nomination rules
* Users may make nominations for as many of the awards 1–6 as they wish, please make it clear who is your nominee for which award.
* Only one nominee per user per award.
* Nominations are only accepted via PM to Rakas, do not post them in this thread.
* Nominations coming from users who did not post in the MHoC during Parliament XIV will not be accepted.
* "Newbies" must not have posted meaningfully in the MHoC before the start of the 24th general election.
* No nominating yourself!

For the first time in these awards I am going to explain my nominations in this thread.

1) Debater of the Parliament

No one but that is because there have been no thought-provoking bills that has attracted a quality debate.

2) Newbie of the Parliament

The rise and fall of Fleky is unbeatable in this category.

3) Award for Best Legislation

Following on from the first nomination, there was no standout bill last term.

4) Comedian of the Parliament

Any members who thinks they are funny is not funny.

5) Drunkard of the Commons Bar

The bar is the dullest place of the MHoC but JD is the only member who regularly posts useful things in there.

6) Mr/Ms Congeniality

No point nominating anyone for this, the left-wing will nominate and vote Ray again.

7) The Speaker's Award (The Order of Gaitskell)

It would be better if this award was to give an award to the Speaker, Rakas would easily win the award for highest percentage of updates delegated to the Deputy Speaker. And as a question to Rakas21, I am surprised you are naming your award after a Labour Party politician who was a political failure.

That was Fez's name for the award. I imagine Rakas will change it

The Speaker's Award should be called The Order of Rats!

(Just to be clear, I mean Rakas21's supposedly favourite uncommon exclamation, not actual rats.)

Think the numeral needs changing at the top.

Since prior speakers have clearly being able to pick a prior leader they liked and call it the order of (it was also called the order of Gladstone as i recall) i shall have it renamed 'the order of Disraeli'.

Should it not be named after a former speaker perhaps? The one who stopped Charles I from arresting five MPs?

Keep the nominations coming guys, some interesting stuff.

I think i have a clear winner for the speakers award by restricting the field to last term albeit should i preside over the nominations next term there are already two great shouts.
