|Message||If a citizen wants to fully "express" themselves, and the only way they could accomplish this is to sell food, yet they can't get a license, aren't you taking this form of "expression" away from them?|

|Message||It is surprising that the people who claim to represent the fair citizens of Quanzari who vote against such a bill. Such a bill that presents the protection of the sanctity of the food that is sold. It is necessary that we place restrictions on who may sell such food. Selling food is not a form of expression; that is a joke. Selling food is an important business for which the people depend on the government for regulation. To me, the choice here is obvious.|

|Random fact: By default, the Head of Government is the ultimate figure of authority in the Cabinet/government. By convention, Heads of Government are expected to consult with and gain the approval of Cabinet colleagues (including those from other parties) for their actions, but they remain ultimately responsible for what the government does. Cabinet Ministers who disagree seriously enough with the Head of Government would usually be expected to resign, although of course their respective parties can manoeuvre to replace the Head of Government by proposing a new Cabinet bill or triggering an early election. The Head of Government may dismiss a Cabinet Minister and replace them with a chosen temporary replacement. In practical terms it may not always be possible to arrange this through the game mechanics, but the dismissal and replacement will be recognised under the Game Rules if the player controlling the Head of Government simply puts forward a bill, announcing the change.|
