Local gamer Simon Williams has been surprised to learn today that all this talk about Proroguing isn’t about levelling up your thief character and getting another feat and some more skill points.

“What all that has got to do with whether the Queen can dissolve parliament I don’t know. Unless it’s the Queen of the Demonweb, in which case I reckon Lolth could make all kinds of improvements to Westminster.”
