    Get to present legal cases of course, to a panel of judges.

    Debating is a lower form of mooting.

    Besides that it would be fun!!

    How do I start it?


    This is my formal question to TSR Labour.

    Oh, you mean a TSR Courtroom? Hrm. I suspect the Law Forum would be the way to go. Find a dozen people that want to get involved, and post a thread in About...

    This was our manifesto at the time of the last election.

    TSR Labour Party



    Labour: progress and fairness through listening and learning


    What do the TSR Labour Party stand for?


    We envisage a society where every child born has a fair and equal chance in life with access to a high standard of education and health care. Where everyone is given the opportunity to achieve highly, irrespective of their backgrounds, with support in place for those who need it.

    What have we achieved?


    The Labour party have been one of the more active parties over the last year. In the last year we have:

    • Given control of bus services back to local authorities.
    • Reassessed Income tax.
    • Introduced a levy on plastic bags to encourage reuse.
    • Improved dentist provisions in the UK.
    • Changed the way that languages are taught in England and Wales.
    • Provided funding to encourage the use of renewable energy.

    What next?


    We hope to produce a bill improving educational provisions in prisons helping to address issues behind re-offending rates. We want to improve postgraduate funding making it easier for those who want to study beyond a first degree. We hope to encourage preschool education at home by providing books and learning materials to parents who are unable to afford them. We are currently discussing a bill surrounding health warnings on alcohol to tackle the problem of binge drinking. Britain is currently facing an STI epidemic that we will address by improving access to GUM clinics. We plan to continue our efforts to increase recycling in the UK both in industry and in the home.

    Yes - So do I find supporters .. and then set up a thread asking it?

    And then what?

    I mean you need to have Law Lords (Lord Justice Hysteria - I am nearly there) and then appoint Barristers and cases etc ...

    OMG - This is awesome!!

    Judicial Review, heard of that!!

    There was a conversation about having a house or lords some time ago, it was suggested more as a possible way to recognise the contributions of members who have since moved on from the HOC. I think it was generally accepted to be an idea which wouldn't work but if you search House of Lords in the subforum i suppose you could bump up the thread and see if oppinions have changed.

    I have mentioned several times that we are a lot more left-wing than the real Labour Party. So yes, we do.
    I don't really think you can use 'we' there, even though it's almost certainly true. There is still a fairly wide range of views within the TSR Labour Party, just like the real one. The difference is that there is no real detailed manifesto outlining what our views on every single topic should be, so we are all differently politically inclined. This isn't saying the TSR manifesto is useless, just that it could never encompass enough to suggest that 'we' are more left-wing. I think most of us are, but.. I'm not a socialist.

    I happen to know that at one stage you had a draft for this, but still: not done it.

    Britain is currently facing an STI epidemic that we will address by improving access to GUM clinics.
    Not done it.

    We plan to continue our efforts to increase recycling in the UK both in industry and in the home.

    Going well, then. Good to see the government coming through on all its promises.

    The alcohol bill is coming through tonight. Or tomorrow. I can't remember which one Rachel said.

    And... yes. I can't really say much can I? Apart from that we're the only party this term to have had a bill passed.

    The person who first thought that bill up and wrote the first draft... is s/he a member of the TSR Labour party. A simple yes/no will suffice.
