    Is the appearance of a RL Labour Party team in blue kit an act of treachery, especially from Ed Balls, a Norwich supporter?
    for the real life Labour party it's just showing their true colours aint it? slightly lighter shade of blue than the Tory scum, and they call themselves the opposition, ha!

    Why are Labour unable to fill all their MP slots? Are they simply too small to hold government? Would you like to give some to UKIP where we had to turn people away?

    I don't think you should be attacking us for not having enough members to fill our MP slots. It's not good for any party in the house, as it shows reduced participation. The house is at it's strongest when all parties have a strong presence, and it should be seen as a bad thing by everybody when any party can't fill it's MPs, it shouldn't be used as a platform for attack.

    We also won a rather large number of seats, so it's always going to be more difficult filling them all than if we won less as well.

    I wouldn't say I was a socialist. If I was, I would have joined the Socialists. However, it's a false distinction to say that notsocialist = Blairite. There are many strands both between and outside the two. That said, there aren't many Blairites left. The few Blairite MPs we had last term have mostly stepped down of their own accord, as they were struggling with activity. That doesn't mean the party doesn't have a right wing, but the right wing it does have is not Blairite in nature.

    I don't really see a difference between the two parties although I know members of the parties do.

    Well there's only really three ideological streams in the House so you'd be hard pressed to separate every party.

    On TSR we are quite similar apart from UKIP having more socially conservative members and being exclusively eurosceptic.
