Don't bite my head off! It was just a tad hypocritcal of you to demand an explanation when you often don't offer one yourself. Personally I think the MHoC is about arguing politics and so the one-word judgements in debates irk me a bit (it's not only you that does it, other MPs - including myself - have). And I'm a new guy as well, only been active for like two months - hopefully one day I can rise to the prestige of shadow secretary of state for transport.

There's no obligation to state why when you vote for or against. At least we've got the votes from the MPs, that's I can see that matters. Also, I'm a new MP and I've just completed my first week in MHoC. I personally think I've done pretty well. I've got myself elected as a Shadow Minister, I'm writing a newspaper and representing two parties in the MUN. And you're SOS for Equality and Minister for Magic. I don't think they are very important jobs in the Government, do you?
FYI the two positions I hold are not actually serious - neither exist in the real government (MfM is from something I like to call Harry Potter). They just reflect what I'm up to at the moment (equalities bills and magic).
Where've I criticised it?
Yes, exactly. You can't. You can't underestimate a bill if you haven't even seen it. So start criticising a pretty good bill once you've seen it, not now.
The Coalition works under the principle of cabinet government which means we each have a say in policy so all answers here are equally poignant, so don't just shrug 'em off.
All I asked was a simple question the Transport Secretary and now I've got myself hooked into your fun & games. Please, no more on the subject unless it's the SOS for Transport himself. I may as well had PM'ed internetguru.
