    I look forward to vigorously debating with them on a portfolio that I feel very strongly about.

    And good, I was unsure if you were for a few reasons.

    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.

    We do. Our Shadow Cabinet is just a loose collective, really. People are free to submit bills and motions on any subject they feel like, and the Shadow Cabinet merely indicates where people would specialise naturally.

    Just because we want people to be all very active, it doesn't mean that we won't have a bit of structure

    Could the labour party outline their plans for healthcare?

    We're hoping to work alongside other parties on the subject of healthcare, so for now I hope you'll understand if we're keeping it under wraps.

    Given you're so curious, we could tell you the obvious bits - expanding the Foundation Model for NHS services, and the use of mutuals, reform of pension provision, repealing the RL Govts awful proposals, a greater focus on staff happiness (which feeds into the Mutual aspect) as recommended by the Boorman report.

    So greater nationalisation? yeah that will work...

    You do know what the Foundation Model is and what mutuals are, right? Because if so, you'll realise what you've just said is factually untrue.

    You can't just expect all the members of the (TSR) Labour Party to simply create a bill/motion/petition for every aspect of Parliament in a matter of days. Things take time. There's no point rushing into making a bill etc if we've not all discussed it and agreed on the various arguments.

    What's the Tories plans for Health if you're sooooooo organised? Hmm?

    I've already briefly outlined the tories plans for health in the "ask the coalition" thread, it should only be a few pages back at most. Whilst it's only a brief outline of our aims, it does give a good insight into what we plan to do. I'll have a look and link you if you can't find it.

    Thanks, I'll take a look.
