It has already set a precedent. Parliamentary sovereignty has been quashed by an unelected speaker who has decided towns can not be named after people. He might as well introduce a bill that renames all towns named after people to be renamed and then pass it without democracy. Democracy is dead friends. We now live under tyranny. Is this the future we want for our children and our tubby cats?
It hasn't set a precedent. The rule to not send joke items to division was added I think around 12 months ago, and before Andrew was speaker. Since then, Andrew and previous speakers have been required to decide whether an item is a joke item or not.

If she becomes labour leader and manages to lead them to a victory that puts her and Labour in number 10 she does deserve to have a town named after her!

It being a free vote is completely not the point, as whip I would still have to remind people vote (possibly multiple times) on absurd items like this. It's just a colossal waste of time, and is why joke items aren't sent to division anymore. I do suspect you plan on using this as grounds for a VoNC in the future, since you're not exactly part of the Andrew97 Fan Club.

"Nandy Town to acknowledge Rt Honourable Lisa Nandy's efforts to bring notoriety to the notoriety to the town of Wigan" is such a long town title :rofl:
It's so catchy!
