Weekly Round Up Of Parliamentary Nonsense VII
Yet Again we find ourselves able to round up the parliamentary nonsense for this week.
Just when you thought Parliament dealt with letting criminals out and making a bollocks of the appeals system we find the true grit of modern democracy being spooned out for all you taxpayers.
Lady Hermon: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will introduce a chewing gum tax in Northern Ireland.  - Greg Barker will be so proud
Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what her policy is on promoting the sport of croquet; and if she will make a statement. - Guttersnipe thinks this is a role for the ODPM
John Penrose: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many orders have been made to remove hedges in North Somerset under the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003.
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people were successfully prosecuted in Hampshire for the theft of a caravan in each of the last five years.
Fingers crossed that the Legislation and Reform Bill doesn't scrap good quality entertainment like this.
