Empty Seats for M.P.'s

New legislation, rushed through Parliament under the guidance of Boris Johnson, has resulted in the by-election at Oldham being declared void.

The new legislation determines that a majority of registered voters must vote for the election to be valid. In Oldham 52% of the electorate didn't vote so non-voters won.

'We can't have people elected by a minority of the voters' explained David Cameron 'we could have MP's returned with half a dozen votes. If any constituency has less than half the registered voters participating the majority have said - WE DO NOT WANT AN M.P. - when they see the terrible mess that leaves them in they will think again next time. They will have no one to complain to who has an efficient filing system in their backyard. They will have no one to speak in double tongues on their behalf'.

Ed Miliband leader of the Labour Party declared the new law another Coalition Disaster. 'Soon we will have only half the M.P.'s returned with a majority vote from their electorate' he said 'this is a strange way of dealing with the deficit.'

But democracy must rule. A new era is opening up when there may be no M.P.'s at all!
