    I think Labour has been abandoned itself, appears to be chronically inactive.
    I am aware that others have picked up upon their problems, about time. Its just that the response I had from their Leader Ages ago who I think is partly responsible for their woes, I feel is unsatisfactory and Labour are saying they don't care about the NHS given that the Attlee Government created it.

    Sorry...


    Pardon?
    Only the first line there was directed at you. The rest was directed at the Labour party. As much as I love to slam Morgsie's somewhat lackadaisical approach to clarity, the particular post you quoted there was uncharacteristically readable (given that this is the "Labour Party Q&A Thread" - I'm not sure why you posted your question in here, but since no one else cares I certainly won't.)

    So, look at the number of bills / motions we've been producing recently. Are we really that inactive?

    I'm looking more at the number of bills/motions you've been producing individually, all of which could feasibly have been combined into the "Northern Ireland Act 2013".

    As stated before, although I may be putting a lot of bills / motions forward other people do make suggestions / edits and have input.

    And they're not all about Northern Ireland either.

    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
    Hey there As others have said, we've no longer got a Liberal Democrat party but the TSR Liberal Party is likely where you want to go; there are a lot of RL Lib Dems in there. However, you may also like to try Labour, the Socialist Party of the Green Party, who are all largely lefty on most issues and have some links to the RL Liberal Democrats in policy and ideology terms depending on where you look.

    As for activity, your best bet is the Socialist or Green party at the moment.

    (Join the Greens, we're the best!)

    Nice of you all to ignore my question, clear evidence that you have walked away from the NHS. Shame on you given that Labour established it.

    I haven't walked away from it, I've spent the last god knows how long defending the bloody thing in that cesspit known as UK politics and to my friends. A large number of close relatives work in the NHS, not to mention need it.

    Just saying why don't you write the bill which we'll most likely vote for anyway rather than harrassing what used to be the government by digging up stuff from months ago and attempting to force them to take some sort of action.

    Good to see another member support it. I took someone on in the society forums by Stating Thatcherite policy of managers, private involvement and the contracting out of cleaning and catering.

    Yeah I may write it but names have to go on it because I am not a MP. I have made my position clear no freaking privatisation which some members of this House want, private involvement is necessary but it needs to be regulated which Shirley Williams got included in that Bill IRL. Yes it needs reform and afterwords no more. I also think what his name the top boss who is going next year should go now due to Stafford

    You will see that I have used the petition system calling upon the government to sort the A&E crisis out.

    Hunt has announced that the pediatric heart surgery review is suspended and will start again recently.

    I did see the petition indeed, good work.

    As for names i'm sure some will go for it. Send it me when/if you finish it and I may be able to help.

    Reform is a complex issue because there are so many aspects

    Hi there

    Welcome to the MHoC, I'm RoryS, Reserve Deputy Leader of TSR Labour.

    I'm so glad you've found us and had an interest in what happens here.

    If you'd like a copy of our manifesto, the only copy I can find is within our sub-forum here. If you feel that Labour supports your political ideology in real life then I'd suggest coming to us but there are some distinct differences between TSR Labour and the real-life Labour Party! Its up to you.

    If you've got any other questions, don't hesitate to contact me or post here as you've done already!

    Best wishes
    Rory

    1. Given that every Labour Government in history has spent more money than the country can afford, leading every single time to a catastrophic economic crisis, what confidence can we have that any future administration will take the hard (and politically unpopular) decisions needed to enable the country to live within its means?

    2. Why won't the Labour leadership be honest with the electorate (the Tories and Lib Dems are equally culpable mind you) and admit that we cannot carry on throwing borrowed water in the holed bucket of the current, broken, welfare state model? Universal benefits, increasingly unaffordable unfunded pension provision for an ageing population, a ridiculously complicated tax credit system etc etc etc...

    All political parties are the same. They think short term, and put political popularity ahead of the national interest. If we don't address the unfunded pension timebomb (for example) now, and address the problems of ineffective and inefficient welfare provision, it will just get worse and worse, not go away.

    The coalition haven't go the guts to solve it. They are kicking the can down the road.

    Will Labour? I am not holding my breath judging by previous performance.

    You will forgive me if I don't understand the acronyms.

    I was addressing the TSR manifestation of the Labour Party of Ed Miliband and Ed Balls. The one that aspires to run the country after the next election.

    Who do you represent then? And if it isn't them, why should we care?

    The MHOC is the Model House of Commons, its essentially a fictional parliament that we participate in as politicians to pass the time etc.

    The labour party on here are hugely different from ed balls etc, theres a few blairites but theres also a few leftys in there. Browse the MHOC subforum to see some examples of how different this place is from real life (RL)

    I'm just pointing out that its not good blaming the people in this thread for actions taken by the real life labour party when this thread is purely about labour party actions in a fictional parliament.

    Hi guys! I was wondering if you would care to cast a vote on the Football Bill in the division lobby, the vote on which ends today. It is good, sensible, left-wing legislation that will enable ordinary working people to interact fully with Britain's national sport, and I'm hopeful you will take the time to support this principle in line with Labour values Thank you.
