What makes this house unique?

  • Our house rules.

  • The diversity of members: bloggers, academics, civil servants, people of faith, policy officers, campaigners, wonks, lobbyists, journalists, geeks, you.

  • Members can use the internet to check facts or provide references during debate.

  • Motions can be introduced on the spot.

  • Members can raise their “Evidence please” placards to force another member to find the evidence that supports their statements.Rational Parliament - GM debate

  • After each sitting the house produces a brief document that summarises the debate and draws parallels or divergence from related debates in Westminster.

Next sitting: coming soon
