We all remember with joy that lazy fat arses have to pay double in aeroplanes because they take up two whole seats (one for them and one for their metabolism), but unfortunately we haven't seen the same ideas be applied to HM Government.

Aside from the space issue, there are other reasons why we would want to make it harder for the fat to become members of Parliament. For example, they are dumber than us normal people, losing IQ through the "Homer Simpson effect" [1].

Plus, we have to remember that Eric Pickles is a salad-dodging Landblubber, and he's a Tory, so we'd be better off without him.

Thank you.

HA HA! You really funny, the house of common is HUGE! So if we have lots of fat MPs we can make some room, being elected means that you have to elect once just because you are big doesn't mean you are two people.

Being an Mp is a basic judgement of how smart you are and the way you think is right to develop England not how fat you are, this is basic discrimination. What if someone isn't even fat and is forced to be elected twice, it is too unfair.

You also made a point saying that there was this rule that people had to pay double in aeroplanes because they take up two whole seats. This is because they cannot fit in one chair, in an aeroplane all you do is sit down, in the house of common weather your fact or skinny you have to be elected on how well you work.

Reasons for voting decision: Con's point, that we elect MPs for their leadership and beliefs, not for their girth, defeats the resolution. Pro assertion that fat people are stupid is unsupported, and doesn't indicate that they'd be less worthy as politicians at any rate. For all we know all of the voters are blubberous imbeciles.

Reasons for voting decision: Lol. Well Consufficiemt refuted Pro's argument by asserting there is plenty of space in the House of Commons. Moreover, argued that they are not two people. The Homer Simpson IQ effect was non topical and thus disregarded.
