Very strange...but true

Postby coppinpr » Thu Apr 20, 2017 7:31 am

In 1981 parliament saw the first reading of labour MP George Foulkes' bill titled "control of space invaders". No, this wasn't a crazy attempt to prepare for an invasion from outer space, but an equally crazy attempt to ban the hugely popular "Space Invaders" video game. :o The bill failed to pass, presumably too many MP's were down the pub playing asteroids during the vote. !:STEER:!
