Having trouble with your Early Day Motions?

I discover to my delight that one of the parliamentary guidelines for writing Early Day Motions reads as follows:

  • no unparliamentary language or irony should be used

Oh, that’s like, so inconvenient. So is sarcasm ok? Satire? Superciliousness? Parody, so long as it’s well done and references its source? And in any case, is it acceptable to frame your motion with the words “Oh my god, it’s like . . . [text of motion] . . . innit though”?
