    Hello!
    This is the place to ask the Labour Party questions, or sign up yourself which you can do by clicking here. Your questions can be about policy goals, or legislation we've already implemented; alternatively you can just say hello or ask us how we're doing! Because we try to reply to questions as quickly as possible, many of the answers will be the personal opinions of Labour MPs and not necessarily the party line. If you are asking a specific party member a question, please remember to tag them.

    Anyway, if you have a question, fire away.

    Well, Bernard, I don't like the Tories much. There are specific Tories who I do like, but not when they're spreading their politics about.

    A totalitarian is that of or relevant to a centralised government that refuses to tolerate opposing parties. A totalitarian state exercises dictatorial control over the country.

    Two out of two. I'm starting to think I might like this racket.

    Economics is not my strong point, being an eighteen year old with no training in the field. I'm going to leave this question on pending for one of our lot who knows better than I do. You're not being ignored. Also, please bear in mind that this thread is for discussion of the TSR Labour Party. Although I'm sure that we're more than willing to answer questions about them as well.

    1. Well personally I dislike polarising any party, a healthy person has a varied view depending on the topic at hand.

    2. A concentrated government without checks or balance. A regime that exercises authority via underhanded tactics, secret police etc.

    However I'm rather new to politics as a whole, so try to take what I say with a measure of salt.

    Labour has bashed itself so hard over the head recently. I support them still because they're the only people decent enough to support but they make it hard for themelves.

    I'm inclined to agree with this, if we're talking about the real life Labour Party. However, this thread is for the TSR Labour Party, which is more left-wing than the real life lot.

    In fact, I should edit this into the thread title.

    You said you can never be too left wing. We're far more left wing than Labour.

    With regards to China: I'm a socialist and I wrote a bill trying to enforce human rights around the world (I assume that's your problem with China).

    Just pick out the biggest thing that separates us from New Labour, so that we can have a nice spat about it, why don't you.
