The Provisional BBC is a paramilitary organisation which split from the BBC in October 2006 in protest at its toleration of poor writing and Liberal Democrats. The Provisional BBC regrets any civilian casualties resulting from posts contained within, but lays the blame squarely at the foot of the Tories. It is our duty to resist them, by any and all means necessary.

Report exposes "postcode lottery"

Where you live could affect the quality of service you receive from your MP, according to a report by the They Work For You Liberal Democrat Working Group Taskforce.

The controversial report suggests some MPs do more casework than others, some knock on more doors and some have more influence over government policy.

In extreme cases, people on one street might be represented by one MP, and people on the next street could be represented by another. But sensible people claimed that this was an inevitable part of having a geographical system - you have to draw the line somewhere.

"This is what happens when you let the common people choose their own MP" said Shadow Chancellor George Osbourne, who backed tough national standards for new MPs to be reinforced by a lack of hard-hitting targets.
