    What is this?/I'm confused
    Hi there. If you're confused as to what is going on here then you are probably new to this section of TSR. This is a Model House of Commons, a forum where we emulate the structure of the Real Life House of Commons as an excuse to debate politics.

    If you are seeing this and you want to get involved in the debate, please feel free. You do not need to join a party, get approval or join any group to get stuck in right away. If you enjoy it and you do want to join a party then you can do so here. If you have any questions or need any help please message me. I am the current speaker of the house and part of my role involves offering impartial advice to new members so I will always be happy to answer what questions you have. Alternatively, you can read the new members guide to get advice on a wide range of issues.

    Note: Please refrain from making comments about how we spend our free time. It is our free time to spend.

    Of course there is no way I can support this bill due to the violations of the rule of law, the suspension of civil liberties, etc. Nevertheless, it made fun reading.

    Why is there a comma (",") between the form of address ("Her Imperial Majesty") and the title ("Empress")?

    That's wrong.

    It’s right because this bill says so. But is that opposition I see? I assume you know the repercussions for opposing this bill.
    Anyway I think the brackets in your statement are pointless

    They were perhaps pointless, but not wrong.

    Well, luckily the bill hasn't been voted on, then.

    I support Her Majesty The Queen's elevation to the Empress of the Commonwealth.
