M582 – Rename Wigan Motion. Watch
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 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.
