    Then why is he the one showing leadership qualities and pushing the vessel through indeed a dark hour?

    Yes, cabinet government is important, but when a leader is not showing leadership and is being undermined publicly by another minister/spokesman, then there is a problem.

    Similar to the case of Gordan Brown/Miliband, or even Harriet Harman.

    Delegating responsibilities is one thing, but being shown up is another.

    Hebe does answer to me. If i told him to stop he would. That said i want to have the best economic policy. This is from hebe, and he controles that area. We do talk via pm, but he is the one who answeres economy questions here. We as a party work on bills together and i decide wether or not they are ready and when to send them.

    So the leadership has become a rubber stamp?

    If your lacking in knowledge on the economy, then your depending on hebe, which in turn gives him power over you, and paves the way forward showing his own leadership.

    gordon brown's knowledge on the econmy was better than blair's, but blair was certainly still the leader!

    Blair was also charging forward with change, and not remember the announcement of the BIGGEST spending on the NHS ever? on GMTV? Many ministers were not consulted on it. He was in charge of everything.

    But does he share similar ideology?

    In the socialist question time thread, he is heavily criticising the Benefit System, which was a Lib Dem idea?

    I am referring to taking something away from someone who's earned it and giving it to someone who hasn't - i.e. redistribution of wealth. To me, that is morally wrong.

    I have been asured by mattbroon that while no party shares his economic view, he agrees with us on social matters.

    It is well-known, that no person agrees 100% with their party's ideaology. I am sure there are things that the Conservative Party has done that the honerable member disagrees with. I just dont have the patience to research it.

    Mmm, i've always thought of social and economic policy being interwined, can't really have one and not the other,

    Would you not agree?
    If no, please give relevant examples of why.

    Yeah, but is the welfare state not one of the fundamental ideal's of the lib dems?

    It's like doing one thing, but saying another.

    Like up and down, inside out and across the lane.

    For example: i believe in the sexual, racial, age equality - and i believe in rehabilitation of criminals. I also believe (with the exception of wars) that the government should play no role in any perosns death or their choice of how they should die. That is social liberalism. In no way is it intertwined with economics.

    Communism in russia compared with nazi germany. In some ways very similar, in some ways opposites.

    I'm sure this was a liberal democrat bill, before it became a PMB, I might be wrong, but it was introduced by your new leader.

    That is organ donation - not involved with the dying process, but instead once the person is actually already dead. I essential believe in freedom, without infringing on other people's freedoms.

    That would be null and void, there is reasons for it becoming a pmb, mainly the party not having full support for it.

    It's claiming the human body as property of the state. They are still dead, and it's a process of death. Do you agree with this bill? It infringes on the freedoms of the relatives of the dead person.
