In the hours after Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP grabbed the ceremonial parliamentary mace in protest of Theresa May delaying her doomed Brexit vote, I built Grab the Mace, a game about bettering the level of political discourse in the UK by smacking Conservative politicians rount the head with what the Guardian called "the five-foot silver gilt object".
I made the original Thingometer during a leaders’ debate in the run up to the 2015 UK election, to allow people to create a hybrid party leader who could truly represent their views, or to visualise polling data in the worst imaginable way.
Much like Doctor Who, the UK's system of government is essentially a modern façade grafted onto a lot of olden-days nonsense that we studiously avoid talking about. And both of them contain a lot of grandiose jargon that doesn't entirely make sense. Doctor Who Technobabble or UK Government Term is a rather silly game to test your knowledge of both. Probably fairly easy for Brits and pretty hard for Americans.
