- Autism Maximization Bill - OBSOLETE - Autism is something that we must not fear, but embrace. As such, the next logical step in increasing the general autism of Parliament is to run a "country" game concurrently, so that Parliament can act in both a more realistic and autismal level. Proposals for the "country game" are:1. One of those browser games like "Nation States"; 2. A thread-based "Civilization" game, such as the ongoing "Argos" civilization, or; 3. The use of an actual "Sid Meier's Civilization" game, likely either IV or V. Proposed by unknown, possibly Peppa, seconded by Lord Justice Talos [Independent] !!TDcdW2LsBbq

- The MP Podiatric Health Check Ordinance - This Bill mandates that all MP's must take a photo of their feet, one of the tops of both the left and right foot and one of the soles of both feet. These pictures must then be uploaded with your name and tripcode, for parliament to examine. This bill is made to ensure that all MP's are properly caring for their feet and that their feet are healthy and clean. This also helps to make sure our fellow MP's are properly trimming their toe nails, and taking care of their calluses or corns.
