democracy at work


There was a hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch of the Prime Minister’s question time in Parliament, in which an MP continually interrupted the proceedings to ask the Prime Minister what he was going to do to stop Oasis breaking up. I just spent twenty minutes googling to find a video of that, so I could make a joke, but I couldn’t find it, and now I can’t remember the joke.

Story of my life, you guys.


Mr and Mrs Bugg are caped and bewigged Members of Parliament, standing at the podium waving a book of laws and … two balls of yarn? I just don’t even know. In the background, other MPs sit on their benches, ready to start yelling at any moment.

The text reads: “Bugtober 23, 1707: The first parliament of Great Bugtain meets.”
