Cue apocryphal story

Mentally ill to be allowed to become MPs, serve on juries and be company directors

MP of times past had been examined under the Mental Health Act and been found to be not mad.

\”I\’m not mad and I\’m the only member of the House with the document to prove it\”.

Slightly more seriously you can be a nutter and an MP now, but you still cannot be a crook nor a bankrupt and an MP.

  1. Possibly not a convicted crook or a declared bankrupt, but there are plenty of un-indicted crooks and possibly undeclared bankrupts in the lower house. Even then an MP has to be banged up for a year before he/she has to resign.
