    It's not Sitting MSPs joining the Lords, it's sitting Lords joining the Scottish Parliament. David Steel became an MSP about 2 years after he became a Lord.

    I'm sure it differs, my local MP spends has a couple of high-ranking non-cabinet positions and he spends half his week in Westminster and half his week in the constituency. He's also a Twat but that's not relevant. With Salmond he gave up his seat in the commons after 3 years of being First Minister but similarly Douglas Ross is an MSP and an MP and he's leader of the opposition (Scottish Conservatives). I don't think it being frowned upon is good enough, it's frowned upon the appoint cabinet ministers from the Lords but that didn't stop Sunak from giving Foreign Secretary to David Cameron (and he wasn't even a Lord at that point).

    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    I've just learnt that Members of the Scottish Parliament are allowed to be Lords or MPs simultaneously, which doesn't sit right with me. The Welsh assembly doesn't allow it (unless a Lord suspends their peerage) and Stormont doesn't usually allow it but has some weird temporary situation going on that I can't get my head around, and on a national level you can't be a Lord and an MP at the same time. Any elected official shouldn't be representing two areas at once, as they would struggle to equally balance both roles. I've always felt sorry for the constituents of the Prime Minister's constituents (or high ranking cabinet ministers) as they obviously won't get the local representation in Parliament that back-bench MPs can give. But that's not a solvable issue without deconstructing the parliamentary system, whereas a piece of legislation blocking sitting members of the Lords /Commons from being MSPs at the same time would be a lot simpler to pass.

    Mango boy is the first user I've decided to ignore posts for, which means I avoid all his spam but it makes everyone else in this thread look schizophrenic.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    American Actor Lanny Flaherty known for minor roles in Men in Black 3, Natural Born Killers and A Simple Wish has died aged 81.
  10. Past 24 hours have had 3 quite famous British actors, a Nobel prize winner and former MP, an F1 driver, 2nd oldest person and a Quarryman. I think that's quite a decent selection.

    Scavenger Hunt Bingo Deadpool V

    I'm embarrassed enough as it is, without being tagged in the post. I stand by most of my picks (apart from the F1 category because I just chose 3 random names). At least it's not the worst deadpooling performance I've given.

    Betty Driver Memorial Soapstar Superstar Thread

    Fred Elliot was quite possibly my favourite Corrie character of all time, watching him on the ITV3 repeats recently has been an absolute joy. RIP to one of the greatest performers the cobbles have every seen, he was truly one of a kind, I say, one of a kind.

    Seen Any Good Films Lately?

    My father and I have just watched Edgar Wright's 2021 film Last Night in Soho, we both absolutely loved it. Thomasin Mckenzie is brilliant in everything I've seen her in and Diana Rigg gives one hell of a final performance. Moral of the story don't glorify the past, most men are bastards and murder is bad. Also it was a nice reminder that Eloise by Barry Ryan is an absolute banger.
