So I put together this bot version of John Bercow the other day and I've been surprised by how well it just works - no quality control was really needed at all. So much of what Bercow says is quotable and every few hours it comes up with something hilarious

The source content is basically just 100 pages of search results for "Order." downloaded from, massaged with a bit of regexp magic to remove things like truncated sentences.

@fraggle i was reading that bot for pages and pages and by the end of it i had no idea if it was generating things procedurally or just lifting verbatim quotes!

@carcinopithecus They're all verbatim. Only thing I do is vary the "Order!!!" call at the start randomly

@fraggle not sure how i feel about no longer witnessing the first baby steps of replacing all parliamentary proceedings with neural networks now
