    Okay, but the election isn't for some time; so I fail to see how that's going to have any effect on our current alleged "dormant" status.

    Will Labour be accepting my application to join? I feel after Mechie's insistence any form of rejection would be gross hypocrisy!

    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.
    If we had a video of an EDL member making that same point, replacing the anti-american sentiment with islamophobia, we'd have a video which you and countless others would mock. It's really irrational thinking. Though to be honest, every time I've disagreed with you, it's because you've been irrational in my opinion. And I'm far too stubborn to accept that I'm in the wrong!

    I said, that I don't want us to become more like the Americans. At no point did I preach hatred towards Americans. I don't moan at them for speaking like Americans, I do not hate them; it's not remotely similar to the attitude of the EDL.

    I'm sure you've spoken of your dislike of America before in other posts?

    I dislike a lot of the right wing, arrogant and extreme nationalistic attitudes which exist there, but I've never preached hatred against the country like you're making me out to have done.

    Hi guys

    Im not sure if im in the right place but ill try here...

    Iv recently become very interested in politics as i would like to do it as a joint honours with sociology at university.
    I have started a blog (justonthefence.blogspot.co.uk) on my political thought, although i may of slightly got the wrong end of the stick in some parts, I feel I may have the general idea correct about politics and my political decisions.

    I would like to be a member of the Model House of Commons as a Liberal democrat member.

    Im not 100 % sure how this all works so some explanation would be very helpful.

    Thanks and please get back to me

    As a RL Lib Dem, there isn't one here

    Question to Labour, when have you abandoned the NHS?

    The Party of the NHS is not doing anything. One man is, me

    Your Leader washed his hands regarding Stafford Hospital, his response to the Francise Report:

    Hmm, I think I'll ignore it. If someone else, in government or not, wants to write a bill about it then fair enough, but personally I'll dismiss it.

    Hello and welcome to the MHoC!

    It's great to hear that you've become interested in politics and in the Model House of Commons.

    There is no direct equivalent for the Liberal Democrats on TSR anymore, there used to be but they transformed into what's now know as the "TSR Liberals".

    Anyway, you may want to look into other parties as the politics here is somewhat different from what it is in real life. I'd suggest trying Labour.

    Becoming an MP and actually being able to vote on bills and motions etc.. is not as easy as simply joining the party; you need to be selected for an MP position. Which is probably an advantage of joining Labour since we have a lot of seats and some of them are dormant.

    Quoted for acknowledgement
    Hello and welcome to the Model House of Commons!

    You're probably in the wrong thread if you're after the Liberal Democrats, each party has an 'Ask thread', this one is Labour's. The Liberal Democrats recently changed their name, they are now known as the 'Liberals' as they believed they were being unfairly discredited by their association to the real life party.

    Here is the link to the Liberal 'Ask thread'- http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2285007 their leader is called Birchington, he should be at the top of the thread, if you want to join them, let him know and then apply in the usergroup. A quick shortcut to get there could be to click on my signature, its a hyperlink to the usergroup page. All the best and hope to see you contributing soon!

    Well, there's more than one "lefty" party here, generally the "TSR Liberals" are not considered "Left", more centrist than anything.

    I've tried looking for the last MHoC General Election thread (which would include all of the manifestos; but I'm struggling to find it at the moment. I'll try again tomorrow when I have more time.

    But, I'll include them in the list of left leaning parties here:

    Liberals, Labour, Green, Socialists.

    Yes, you will need to apply to the parties; but you shouldn't have trouble getting in. You can do that here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/pro...editusergroups

    I hope that helps.

    There has been nothing from Labour regarding the NHS and the response was washing their hands of the Francis Report.

    I think Labour has been abandoned itself, appears to be chronically inactive.
