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.

Aye, a common sense bill.

Further, we should invest in efforts to create mind control devices to seek out deviants and enforce this bill.

You need to add proivions on how exactly you would know when someone is thinking of committing a crime. At the moment there is no way of practically implementing this.

If I'm someone that doesn't want to 'face reality' for not wanting to hear homophobic, racist and sexist ******** then I'll happily be considered that.

Should people be punished for thought? Some members said that alone needs punishment

The reality is people think those things and if you just say no you can’t think that then nothing gets changed all it does is amplify the feelings but like I said some people here just want to shut down people they disagree with those are just some examples

Who and what punishments exactly?

I'm inclined to leave whatever cancerous cesspool allows for that. Though, if abuse is apparent then punishment goes without saying.

Much like your other stuff, an exhibition of your lack of humour and lack of ability to propose content this forum was created for.

If my stuff was is so bad why is it a search of Hansard shows that the majority of times your name comes up it’s connected to something I’ve created?

The MHoC is actually around to debate any topic someone wants to write a bill and submit, so I would say it is exactly what this exist for

Many members of the house are certainly supportive of the idea in principle given how desperate they are to create safe spaces for themselves.

I am amazed that some people are so desperate to be racist, or homophobic, but that is what I have come to expect from certain disgusting members of this house.

If wanting to have fun on a game, if wanting not to be at the end of homophobic or racist abuse, if not wanting to spend your time dealing with nimwits means having a 'safe space', then sign me up.
