Is Parliament a new playground for MPs?

The background of MPs in Parliament is as varied as the people in the market. We have people from all kinds of professions, the rich and the not so rich, the old and the young, those that have grown up, those who still think they are in schools. And with the introduction of NMPs, we have people representing different interest groups and niche circles.

Now, how would this diverse group of people interact in Parliament and how would they use Parliament to serve their agenda. I believe they would be there to promote the interest of the people or their professions and interest groups.

Would an actor or actress go to Parliament to practise acting? Would a lawyer go to Parliament to practise how to become a better lawyer? Or would a soldier go to Parliament to play shooting at your enemy since he likes to play with guns? Or should a school prefect go to Parliament to role play as a prefect as he misses the fun he had as a school boy? Some may go to Parliament to fly kites as that was their hobby and they love flying kites.

I believe Parliament is for more serious stuff and MPs in Parliament are to discuss serious matters that will affect the lives of the people and country. I hope there are not anglers who carry their fishing rods to cast in Parliament. Or the little scientists to fly their paper planes across the house.

Does anyone have any idea why he is in Parliament or what he should do in Parliament, seriously, other than to have some fun?

Or maybe?
Going to parliament to build up my business network?

Going to parliament because my boss tells me that it is part of my career development?

Here is a really radical idea.
How about going to parliament because you want to make a difference and help your fellow citizens?

It is like asking pigs to represent the cows .... would the pigs put the cows interests before theirs?

At best, the pigs will ensure the cows keep up with them and their interests, uncompromised or mildly compromised

So let's be real here....

On the 5th November 1605, Guido "Guy" Fawkes and 12 other co conspirators planned to blow up the Houses Of Parliament in London, England, mainly because the King James 1 (god's asshole) and his reign were fucking some people up -- because James believed in the "divine right of kings" and that he himself had a "special relationship" with his imaginary friend...the so-called Protestant god. And how it did suck to be Catholic...they were persecuted, sorry no freedom for papal worshipers.

Guy Fawkes and his associates planned to change all that...but failed.

I notice a lot of bloggers like referring to George Orwell's "Animal Farm" and to a lesser extent "1984".

I think a more modern paradigm of political corruption is Allan More and David Llyod's graphic novel "V For Vendetta" made into a movie by the Joel Silver and the Wachowski brothers ("The Matrix") in 2005.

V - the protagonist who uses terrorist tactics, for Vendetta against a totally corrupt totalitarian government in dystopian England, led by a brutal, nasty dictator - the High Chancellor Adam Sutler.

Remember, Remember, the 5th of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot..."

I like the idea of parliament being a playground for its members.

I also idea of Guy Fawkes, and V for Vendetta is one of my favorite movies.

Destroying the corrupt symbols of a corrupt state...when the people finally get their nation back, after they conquer their fear and vanquish their own sheeple-hood, becoming rational men and women once more...
...ahhh...one can dream and romanticise. Such beautiful destruction and explosions!

We are dealing with lusts but not geyland type of lust. People can't distinguish the two types and which is the one that kills.

Put it this way, if you can pass laws to rid geyland lust, you will still die according to the book. However, the reverse is not true. Fucking a real whore has little social and economical impact.

This shows that religious idiots have long been barking up the wrong tree. king James was the outcome of corrupted doctrines. Today's religious/political order is no different. It promotes lusts in high places.

Same beast of the past but in better sheep's clothing.

I'm not going to name that person. Let u guess who is he? Here it goes. If I didn't get into parliament, I would never have landed with 64 DIRECTORSHIPs. No typo error. It's true. U see I was only a school teacher and later I became a school principal. I was later invited to join the "holy order" to serve the people. Why not? The benefits are tremendous. I got paid $15K a mth on top of the perks such as 64 directorships in some companies I also got no idea? Like engineering or construction companies. WRF I know? Just brcuz I am part of the establishment and parliaments all the doors to the corporate world suddenly open automatically for me. So I always advise my children to go to the best school and study hard. With straight As he will also join the elite and maybe end up in one of the GLCs using pepple's life savings to set up. I always advise my children if you wanna join politics always choose the correct one like myself. Nvr go into opposition and be made a bankrupt as there are many cases for you to see. Don't be a retard if you want more money and directorships for the better future of your own children and comfort. Serving the people is secondary. That will come later after I got my millions!
Hear hear people. There is nothing in going to parliament. It depends on which side you have chosen! Langgar!
