    And those who do not vote don't get the services of a MP
    That's undemocratic BP! All voters should be represented. Only by a dummy obviously. They can write to their dummy and get a blank sheet of paper in response or even go along and meet him at the local office.

    PS Apologies, I meant him or her or it. Obviously the dummies will be of all genders, colours, ethnicities etc. and we can have huge fat dummies, disabled dummies and so on. Another big advantage to my scheme, it makes it far easier to ensure the House of Commons is more representative of our diverse society.

    Would the dummies be inflatable?
    Every parliament they could be filled with hot air, and once the air ran out, they could just be blown up.




    Wow, I managed to get "politicians full of hot air" and a Guy Fawkes reference in to one sentence.

    Brill. Filled with hot air would really improve the realism! I think the dummies would need to be clearly marked so people do not confuse them with the live MPs.

    Sifting through the litany of mistakes copies of your marriage certificates, I don't see Dolly. A couple of mad cows maybe, but no sheep.
