How do you engage Britain's apathetic, apolitical, antipolitical teenagers in the political process? Simples.

You hook them up to a computer game that will "engage and immerse young people in learning about democracy and the role of Parliament in scrutinising the government, representing the public and making laws".

Can't wait.

Anyroads, this is the thinking of Parliament, which wants five to seven companies to tender for a contract worth 250k-350k to design a computer game for the Youth.

Not a great deal of money, then. And almost certainly a wasted opportunity.

We suppose a shoot-em-up is out of the question. Or a simulator. Our suggestion for a title: Grease my Palm.
