Mark Thomas's " The People's Manifesto"

Mark Thomas on his website gives the background to his People's Manifesto:
"As folk may know I have spent the past year touring the country getting audiences to propose, discuss and vote for policies to make the world a better place. The end result is the People's Manifesto published by Ebury Press (out 28th Jan 10)"

The People's Manifesto is an excellent and funny read and my two favourite policy suggestions are:
" The Daily Mail should be forced to print on the front of every edition the words: 'This is a fictionalised account of the news and any resemblance to the truth is entirely coincidental."

and secondly,
"Anyone who supports ID cards should be banned from having curtains."

Have a read, there's a lot more like that...and worse!

The suggestion for a law making it illegal for MPs to knowingly lie was originally a Private Member's Bill called the Prohibition of Deception Bill by a certain Adam Price MP.
