This is very much on-topic for link, surely.
There are plenty of outlines of the law, e.g.:
See Schedule 1 clause 3:

Given that parliamentarians have prioritised their own self-interest
over that of the public, countermeasures are needed.
I'd have thought that a set of rules could be devised that would
identify political spam with a very low false-positive ratio. Hasn't
that been done in quite a few CompSci 2nd year assignments? (If not,
We don't want such a rule-base implemented centrally.
But making it available in various formats for plugging into
individuals' own filters would seem like a logical measure.
