    Any questions to the Conservative party should be asked here, either I will answer within a few days or one of the Tory MP's will respond to your question. Sometimes a Tory member will offer a personal opinion on a topic which has not been discussed in our sub-forum, this does not neccesarily mean that that is the party line, simply that the issue hasnt been debated yet.

    (If you have a question for the Conservative-Libertarian Alliance, then you may have to wait a little longer for a Lib member to see the question.)

    Hello Dave, thanks for making this thread.

    Do you intend to whip against bills by the LD/Lab/Soc coalition as a matter of principle or will you take each individual bill on its merits?

    (Not a dig, honestly, I'd like to know).

    EDIT for grammar

    When it comes to clarifying the rules, will the Tories be voting for or against explicitly allowing three-party coalitions. And why?

    Practically every bill will be whipped. Im not going to sit and watch nationalisation bills pass in this house or anything vaguely socialist in character. Party discipline will be so srong because we are all so angry about this that they will agree to follow party line.

    We dont want three party coalitions because it means that there is no voice for right wing voters because you will just scheme to isolate us like the last 24 hours have been an example of.

    Ok, but lets for arguments sake say that one of the coalition parties opposing you puts forward a bill you actually like/don't mind. Will you whip aganst it anyway or will you run with consenssus politics?

    If the Lib Dems put forward a bill on civil liberties we may support it but i really cant see us voting for much of ur bills this term as its going to be dictated by the Socialists.

    Right well I can't speak for the entire party or coalition but I don't think we're going to be dominated by the socialists. Thanks for your answers.

    So you're going to vote against three-party coalitions for purely political reasons? Is there a logical reason why three parties shouldn't form a coalition?

    Political = the right has no voice
    Logical = tyranny of the majority

    Scarcely have greater words been spoken in this house.

    If you don't believe in tyranny of the majority then why did you try and form a coalition with the Libers :rolleyes: Just be honest Dave; you want to bias the system in favour of your side, and if there were three right-wing parties you'd have no compunctions whatsoever about having three-party coalitions. You're just being completely duplicitous.

    Will all Con/Lib MPs vote for every Con/Lib bill, or do you have specific bills to be voted on by the coalition, leaving the rest up to the individual parties?

    I dont oppose you having a union with Labour because your ideology is not that much different, I dont mind a Lib-Lab coalition for the same reason, I dont mind a Con-Lib coalition. However I do not believe a LibDem-Lab-Soc coalition is anything other than a marriage of convenience.

    If you honestly think that the Reds would be sitting down quietly if the same thing was happening to them you really have no clue. Everyone complains when they lose that the system is unfair because few systems really are fair, and the winners always tell the losers to stop complaining -- this is no exception.

    Given that at every single opportunity the TSR Tories have rolled back the state -- and, may I remind you, to extremely heavy Socialist resistance -- it's ludicrous to call us "fascists."

    There's no need to be so defensive, it was a fair question.
