Description

Mark Thomas has been touring the country for months, getting audiences to come up with policies aimed at sorting out the country's political chaos and taking back the power for the people. Sick to death of bailing out bankers and subsidising MPs homes, the audience vote on the best policy of the night to be included in the brand new People's Manifesto.

From the inspiring to the downright hilarious, you'll wonder why these fantastic ideas aren't part of the constitution already. For example:

- All politicians will be forced to wear the names and logos of the companies sponsor that them or with whom they have financial links.
- Anyone who supports ID cards is banned from having curtains.
- All models have to be picked at random from the electoral register.
- Anyone found guilty of homophobic hate crime has to serve their sentence in drag.
- CEOs convicted of fraud will be made to dress as pirates in whatever job they get in the future.

The People's Manifesto will outline 50 policies of the manifesto shouted out in bold type on a page to themselves with Mark's commentary opposite. Mark has even 'road tested' some of them - like hosting a party in an MP's second home (which clearly belongs to the taxpayer) and getting university boffins to work out a way of SAT testing MPs to rank them by value. And Mark's guerrilla antics won't end there...

Power to the people is really happening.

About Mark Thomas

Mark Thomas has worked as a comedian for over twenty years. His activist, campaigning brand of comedy has been a thorn in the side of many politicians and corporations. However, recently he has been invited to give evidence at various government select committees. He is one of a limited number of people to be awarded a UN Global Human Rights Defender Award and has also been awarded a Kurdish National Congress Medal of Honour amongst other citations. His three-year campaign to stop the building of the Ilisu dam in Turkey was ultimately successful and saved 78,000 Kurds from being displaced.
