    You can't be serious those are all relatively easy jobs compared to a number of equivalent paying jobs in the private sector.
    It's subjective. I can't understand how you can say that, but I suppose Adorno was correct with his comment yesterday.

    The Labour Party have decided we shall not be forming government. We feel that we would better serve the interests of the electorate from opposition.

    The Conservative Party respects this decision and hopes that you have a pleasant and successful term.

    I have a few reservations about it.

    Firstly, the amendment talks about ministers. I've never seen ministers in TSR apart from your party when we were in government, and I don't think they're really necessary.

    Also, it would make departmental positions more official, and I don't really like that. I don't like the fact that a secretary of state on TSR to feel like they must only have policies on their department. I like the open house system where anyone can propose bills about anything, and I think this is moving towards taking the departments almost too seriously.

    Some of your Minister's did nothing last term. This would introduce the doctrine of Ministerial Accountability to this House

    I don't want to drag up old arguments. Minister's should be held to account and my Amendment does that

    I'm simply saying that the majority of the most difficult jobs are from the public sector. Of course it's just my opinion, but it seems that the majority are. On the note of figures, how can I provide you some figures to back up my claim of public sector jobs being generally more difficult when it's subjective? I'm qualifying 'hard' as the effort it takes and work one has to do.
    Hilarious.

    I'm confused about why you're so adamant they should even exist. There's absolutely nothing about them in the constitution, so what on earth are you talking about?

    Departmental statements are in the guidelines along with the budget.

    Ok, great, but they aren't a requirement at all. They aren't in the constitution and they never have been. How can you make something that's totally voluntary "accountable"?

    Blimey, good to see you lot have done your research.

    I'm officially mobilising the "Anti-Morgsie Inflicting his bookish-****ery on everyone" side of the debate. I wholeheartedly oppose any sort of obligations on people joining. I think it's utterly pointless, it doesn't improve the house in any way at all, it makes it less approachable and more specialised all whilst putting this responsibility in the hands of people who more or less have no idea what they're talking about.

    What are the opinions of those whom are in the Labour Party on the European Union, Free Market and CIS?
    Anyone going to answer these or can we expect you to not answer them and do nothing during this term... as usual?

    Is that opinion on the RL EU or the EU as affects the TSR HoC? Because the TSR HoC does retain sovereignty, unlike the RHoC.

    Given you're talking about the RL EU, we don't have a party line. There's no point, because it's not relevant to TSR and the EU as it affects the TSR HoC. My personal opinion is that the RL EU has the potential to be something good, but is currently in the fledgling stages and is going through various growing pains. I think it is important Britain becomes involved, but I think reform of the EU is necessary - particularly making it more transparent and more democratic. I'm also pro-referendum, but I'd say Yes to staying in the EU once that referendum had taken place.

    Cool answer... so what about the Free Market and CIS/СНГ (would it work within our Commonwealth)?
