What is this thread about?
This is a joke motion in the Model House of Commons (MHoC). It's a proposed statement that is currently being debated, but I wouldn't take it too seriously! All are welcome and encouraged to ask questions about the motion's content and join in the debate – you don't have to be in a party or be an MP to do so.

What is the MHoC?
It's a political role-playing game where we pretend to be the House of Commons, and it's been going since 2005. We have formed parties, we have elections twice a year, and we debate bills and motions just like the real-life parliament. If you want to know more about how the MHoC works, your first port of call is the user manual. If you'd like to get involved and possibly join a party, you want the welcome thread.


M540 – Motion on the Banning of Huddersfield Town AFC Shirts 2019, thestudent33 MP
This House calls upon the Government to prohibit the wearing of Huddersfield Town t-shirts in any public place.

Notes
The team is a disgrace to the country and should be severely punished for their performance against the glorious Manchester United F.C.

Why are you continuing to accept these submissions? It's demeaning this house.

Hear hear! The speaker should not accept any more “(insert football team) shirts should be banned”

The issue is, where do we draw the line on joke motions. Some can be fun.

Any government who would do something like this is a tyrannical government.

I can assure you two that this is the last one for a long time. I would've preferred for this to go up the same day of the match but that wasn't possible.

This banter is weaker than De Gea's arms.

Whilst I think it is very poor that Huddersfield failed to beat Manchester United, the sightings of their shirts outside West Yorkshire are so rare that this is so unfair.

Can I just make things crystal clear for everyone, the motion on huddersfield refers to their match against Man U on Sunday the 5th. I believe some people are confusing it with another match.

Well at least I understood it! It was disgraceful that Huddersfield failed to win. Every time Manchester United lose is a cause for celebration, just a pity it did not happen on the 5th.

Ban the players, don't discriminate against fans.
I am relieved to know we won't see this in division.

You don't understand it properly tho This is supposed to ban them bcos they drew against Man U and thats not acceptable, when playing Man U you should let them win not try and draw against them

If this motion is designed to show support for Manchester United then vote against this. Huddersfield Town have a history, being the first club to win the League three years in a row, and far more local fans that the team founded in Newton Heath.
