    If your that ****ing desperate you'd actually accept a member who'd party on your grave and hates a large proportion of what you represent I'll join as a dual member.
    I'm sure tehFrance was a member not long ago, not out of the question...

    Why don't you join the Greens instead?
    No thanks, instead I command you also to join Labour. Labour is going to be the best party by a mile once everybody accepts my commands.

    I want full commitment. I command you to leave the Greens and join Labour.

    In an ideal world I'd want dual membership gone but I personally think it could be exploited for the benefit of your party - but you'll hear more about that when we've agreed internally whether we agree with that. I don't think it shows a lack of commitment, it's something that can be useful for members who don't really fit in a single party comfortably, but still want to participate in the house. As for TopHat being a member of the Greens if it's that large a concern I'm sure there is internal avenues in Labour you can explore, or house-wide avenues if you feel so inclined.
    Well, I can tell you now that I'm totally against anything that promotes dual membership. If you're going to go down that route then you may as well merge the parties; which, by the way, I'd be totally against as well.

    I've already voiced my concerns about TopHat being in the Greens and at least got him to take out the "Join The Green Party!" banner out of his signature.

    I think you've just rested my point, the Labour party is almost exclusively producing your individual output and may as well be renamed the Xedix band of merry men.



    I'll speak how I want, I don't need people to tell me how to talk.
    My forum name is StatusRed now; so that would hardly be appropriate and as stated, although I may come up with most of the content initially that doesn't mean that no one else has any input. It's not as clear cut as you make it out to be.

    When I witness someone speaking or typing like a yank, I believe it to be a sign of their susceptibility to television and lack of self determination. So, feel free to continue.

    I command you to join Labour again.
    I'd rather he didn't.

    I know i'm not privy to your internals but is the problem really a lack of membership, or is it struggling to keep the membership active? You need to come up with a way to engage them.

    Unfortunately, my offer is on a strictly dual-member basis. There is no way I'm leaving the Greens any time soon.

    Aye, he was; on a covert account, which was swiftly dealt with after Adorno (with his great imposter detecting skills) uncovered that it was him.

    Join Labour? I'll have you know that's a rhetorical question, I know the answer is yes. I'll accept your membership application shortly.

    No, if you go even further back into last term his main account was let into Labour for a very brief period (I remember the socialist outrage). Also, you've just cleared up why tehFrance was perma-banned from the section - I'd suggest Democracy's suggestion of there being nothing scandalous at the time was somewhat liberal with the truth.

    Your theory isn't exactly foolproof when you consider that I'm the longest serving MP and one of the longest serving members of The Labour Party and am the most active.

    Maybe not, but you'll try as soon as The Green Party stagnate.

    Oh, I think I vaguely remember that, and yup I was pretty annoyed about it. I can assure you that I would not have been okay with him joining.

    Concerning him being perma-banned, I'm not sure whether he was actually on a "dupe" account at the time. So I wouldn't be as quick to say that he was breaking any rules.

    No, there is absolutely no chance of me leaving the Greens ever until I become active/die, there's no other party I'd feel as comfortable in.

    Was he not perma-banned before? I thought Krollo came afterward.

    Sure but i'm just going by circumstance. You filled you MP ranks directly after the election and since April 1st the Tories have accepted 14 new members so yours will be higher given RL popularity.

    Feel free to disagree but i was only giving some advice since the House is a little sluggish.

    Have you been a member of every other party? If not, then how can you possibly come to that conclusive thought?

    I wouldn't know the exact number of new members we've got.

    Definitely not the socialists (there's a reason I left), I'm almost certain not Labour and the MRLP don't exist and probably won't exist.

    No I haven't been a member of every party, but I can come to that thought by assessing the politics of every party and the external projections of their members.

    I had to pick up on this point as you've had a go at me on a couple of occasions for using Americanisms. I don't think lack of self-determination has anything to do with it. Language is always evolving and we pick up words from lots of different sources. I don't think there's anything wrong with picking up an expression or colloquialism that comes from American television. It's all down to personal choice. I live in an area where a lot of people end their sentences with the word "fam", but I'd never use that in a sentence!

    Maybe it is :cool: Then again, if it was I wouldn't tell you. Or I would tell you thinking if I told you you wouldn't think it's a jedi mind trick, thereby meaning I can run amok with my mind trick without you having a clue! By the way, you're welcome in Labour anytime.

    The last thing I want is us becoming more like the yanks which is why I try to protect my language from it as much as possible. The Canadians manage to resist yank influence on their language (for the most part) and they're bombarded by yank television on a daily basis as well as being very close to America geographically. Which makes me even more disappointed when I see my fellow Britons speaking like yanks.

    Even myself, I speak to Americans on a daily basis and manage to not speak like them; this is where my opinion concerning self-determination originates.

    And, although I don't approve, at least ending a sentence with the word "fam" originated in Britain.
