The People's Manifesto: Mark Thomas and friends' suggestions for UK political reform

UK political comedian Mark Thomas's new book is The People's Manifesto, and it contains a list of hilarious (and useful) wish-items for political reform in the UK, generated by Thomas's audiences during a UK standup tour. At each tour stop, Thomas asked his audience to write out political reforms they'd like to see, and then he'd read them aloud from the stage, riffing on them and letting the audience vote (by cheering) for their favourites. The People's Manifesto compiles the best of these, with hilarious and trenchant commentary from Thomas.

Here are some examples I quite liked:

There's a lot to these -- they're not just funny, many of them are eminently sensible. Like the dog-shit one.
