Commons Bar

The Commons Bar is the main chat thread for the Model House of Commons. It is used by members to dicuss the MHoC, general politics and other topics.

The bar is run by the Speaker, who is now responsible for setting up new bars and maintaining order in the bar. Occasionally, the Speaker may move coversations from other threads into the bar if they are becoming off-topic.

In September 2006, bikerx23 set up the first Commons Bar so that members could have conversations free of restrictions. Since then, the Commons Bar has become an integral part of the House and after every 10,000 posts a new bar is created.

Barman

Due to the 'bar' aspect of the thread, members sometimes jokingly request alcoholic drinks. In January 2009, ukebert successfully passed an amendment to introduce a position titled 'Barman of the House of Commons'. In this amendment, the Barman would be responsible for intoxication within the House and maintenance of the Commons Bar. Also, the Barman would take the place of the Deputy Speaker.

In May of the same year, daniel_williams proposed an amendment in which the barman would be required to serve alcoholic beverages and to give complimentary drinks to every MP of a party which passes a bill.

Although both of these amendments have since been repealed, mobbsy91 is regarded by many in the House as the incumbent Barman.
