    We tend to prefer not publishing for the sake of publishing, and nkt being in government with a commitment to do so we have no need to.
    Right? That's not exactly a direct answer but okay...

    Remind me of a rough date please
    October or November 2014 I presume.

    My point is that no other recent government has been significantly better than the current one. I don't buy that a Con-UKIP government will be significantly better, and they will have to water down their policies somewhat if they want them to pass.

    That must have been the 18th then, the 19th was the Great Swing Left when S went inactive, 18th was a coalition with Mac and Qwertish? I think I only really became active after that as I don't recall it.
    The "Great Swing Left". :lol:

    Back in the day when the Socialists had 7 seats of their own and still were lending seats to Labour, whilst UKIP had maybe one or two active members at best.

    How things have changed.

    Yes. Wouldn't it be such a dreadful shame if the Tories were to go?

    Considering that the replacement would be a republican who wants out of NATO and dislikes the union and our overseas territories.. yes.

    Haha true, but I feel a storm brewing and I have just been embroiled in an escalating row about gender equality, so it was sort of the last thing I wanted to encourage

    You're in a thread where a motion of no confidence in the TSR government has been called. Pretty sure a storm has arrived already.

    A lot of people claim to be professional poker players, can you actually confirm that you've won money and tournaments.
    Before going full-time, I was up about $40k lifetime post-rakeback, most of that being in the last calendar year. I've been able to win about another $4k since going full-time in January, and I'm pretty confident at least that is sustainable (and in addition, there's about $2k from teaching.

    Yup, back when, say, only 2 of the current Labour MP were still Labour MPs.

    I can't even remember who was UKIP leader then, it was before LP, so I'm thinking that the 19th was Toronto leader.

    Well, the responses on the government side are as expected a mix of the usual "we're super active geniuses that constantly put out high quality accurate stuff whilst constantly being in the same position for 3 months of imminent release because you cannot expect us to be super active", mixed with a bit of " you guys suck", an amount of "waaah, I r victim", and let's not forget " I have crystal ball so can see you would be worse and we are teh bestz0rz

    And the responses to the responses are mostly, as expected: 'I can't think of a counter-argument so this must be right. I'd better belittle what they're saying rather than embarrass myself by trying to say something intelligent.'

    Wait, you mean the ability to be able to look at this thing called "history", the track record of this government, I.e. the motion itself is embarrassing and unintelligent? Does this government, particularly the chancellor now fled, not define itself by asserting objective falsehoods?

    No, having to publicly accept that what we're saying in defence of ourselves is right and that this motion is baseless and full of holes might be though, hence your making fun of our responses rather than trying to make a point for yourself.

    And yet, a simple scroll up the page shows your typical political answer of

    "We tend to prefer not publishing for the sake of publishing, and nkt being in government with a commitment to do so we have no need to."

    So, the government is inactive, we're (the Tories) way more active, just because you can't see what we've written because we don't want to submit it because we don't have to.....BUT I PROMISE WE'RE MORE ACTIVE.

    This is the best but of posting those comments, because you go and shout BS, funnily enough you expect every word to be believed when it comes from your side, even though they're contradictory, with half the time people saying they have no time for the MHoC, and the other that they are ultra active.
