This isn't the British parliament's main problem. Of you making fun of the MP's.
Some years back I actually decided to sit for 5 hours to watch the entire decision making process of passing a law that would abolish the Student's grant, just so to see how "British democracy" works and how they perform their daily task of ruling Britain. After 5 hours, I realised the british parliament is the most un-democratic and above all corrupt place on the planet, were it's merely actors performing a supreme act of state theatre to the public who now watch them on TV to convince them all is done democratically.

Whereas all these guys do is not even make an appearance in parliament if they don't want to, don't even have to defend their issue, and just show up after 5 hours were the chamber gathers a large crowd of Mp's who were on coffee break, they vote...which is a corrupt vote obviously, and then the law is passed. Even though watching it for 5 hours you expected the opposite, the British parliament completely mis-represents the will of the people, and only looks after it's own private interests.
Those morons made me lose 5 hours that day for nothing...but in the end I finally learned the truth..

Lol most people who live in the UK use such websites as the pirate bay I certainly don't because our free none censored internet unlike China blocks certain websites lol but many do download tv 10 weeks into the future .. I'm about to finish season 3 of the expanse this Thursday it's a wormhole gate system and lots of people die in horrible ways really lot of gore that we all loved in the first ep of season 1
I watch torrents of the news in Germany and I already know how shit brexit is going to turn out for the UK we are going to have to wait till the BBC talks realistically about it before the plebs in parliament know it's going to be shit and talk about the eu with name calling and they won't see this comming like parliament is held secret in a bunker and isn't streamed out live to everyone in the universe inside the information bubble .. piracy in the UK is like the power to see the future from UK info
And yeah we really are up to 10 weeks behind in some cases if u pay for t.v. in the UK im Not kidding watch UK tv it's like traveling back in time even British tv shows are like watching special effects from the 80s too lol..
I even watched the bluray release of ready player one 3 weeks ago still love the end with the creator being alive in his created world if enough info is stored then so is the person .. ..
it's ok tho we do actually pay full sky sub still and will be getting the bluray of ready player 1 like we have every film anyways when ever it finally comes out
Still waiting for legit movie 3d to catch up to pirate movie 3d
Pirate 3d is where u get Samsung gear vision get the side by side 3d version of the movie and DTS to bilingual audio for headphoes on vlc and watch the movie in 3d using ur phone and have true 3d audio thru ur headphones
Yeah still don't know why this isn't a legit thing yet lol

Take the Best Surveys!
Paid online surveys are very popular today because marketers can collect consumer opinions quickly and in a cost effective manner. Giving incentives to web participants is much cheaper and more efficient than surveying customers on-site, over the telephone or through the mail. It explains why many surveys are conducted online... But are they the best survey opportunity out there?

Well I have to correct you John; point of comedy aside, I just watched this show, from the UK (indeed from only a few miles away from aforementioned parliament) and saw both clips from Parliament with John Bercow. Whether such a law exists or not about including parliament footage in light entertainment shows, its not been enforced (yet?)...

Too bad he hasn't spoken on the Tommy Robinson arrest
Michael Frost
Michael Frost - Vor 25 Tage
Peter Franklin, he merely stood outside of the court house and recorded a video of himself speaking about the trial. The fact that he was arrested for such a trivial act and sentenced to over a year in prison should be jarring to an American audience, for whom reporting on trials from outside of court houses is the norm. As to his history with the EDL, he distanced himself from the movement due to their increased racialized rhetoric, and has condemned far right extremists. He has found allies in practicing Muslims such as Maajid Nawaz, though I'll concede that he has been rather inprecice in his language regarding Islam (especially on Twitter). This is a rather obvious case of political persecution, the latest in a long struggle that Robinson has faced. The fact that no UK journalist can even report on Tommy's arrest should be alarming to those of us who fear government censorship. Even though I don't agree with him on much, we should all speak out against this situation as being unjust.

I'm from the UK and I can confirm that this punishment is only what we deserve.
If the HoC doesn't want their jeering buffoonery to make the evening news (or more likely mock the week) maybe they should all stop acting like petty, bloviating bastards, whose main aim in life is to score empty, childish points against the other party, and whom collectively need regular time outs lest they widdle themselves in all the mean-spirited excitement.

What’s the point? We have plenty of satire - including of Parliamentary sessions - on TV, in print and on the internet. It’s an archaic law, but not reinforced by police and it’s pointless these days anyway. However taking the time and effort to rewrite or nullify that law is just time best spent doing other, more vital and needed sooner, lawmaking by those overpaid cunts in Parliament. The dog’s dinner that is Brexit needs sorting out by those bastards first - then there’s the NHS, railway omnishambles, houseprices, crime & policing, prisons, tax avoiding etc etc etc etc. Maybe when MPs have got time to spare and are sat around not doing anything they can do this - until then, kick it into the long grass.

For the most part I like John Oliver. 8 out of 10 times I agree with with his points. But what i object to is his constant insulting of the country that educated him. Britain is not a "rough draft" that America has improved on. America is FAR from perfect and has a lot of "issues" of its own. Many would argue a dam site more! Britain is also not perfect, but, right now i would suggest that its Democracy and moral compass is in much better shape.

Nobody thinks that the UK’s people are free in the same way Americans are. Well actually there are those people that do believe that. But that’s just because in their mind they’re not allowed to like America. Many liberals see bashing America as cool.

In terms of injustices in Britain, fairly certain the police enabled gang rape of thousands of young girls by Muslim immigrants and their inability to meaningfully defend themselves via the use of firearms trumps your inability to be unable to make jokes about parliament.
