    I didn't realise forcing people onto the streets was considered security of your home and house.

    Newspaper? It's a rag - the only publication worse is the Express!
    If a Sinn Fein party formed - the irony would be that they have to refuse to take their seats in Parliament.

    Also true Although we could always form a "Unity" pact so we wouldn't have to abstain

    You're talking to one of several fairly new Liberals, and hopefully one of the several new Liberal MPs next term

    Enough

    New members, I'd say 3 or 4 that are active(ish). Joe and TitanCream are our most active new members. We also have ChildOfTony that joined a couple of days ago who's doing great so far.
    Then, from other parties another 4.

    While it's true that it's not really evident in our manifesto, we are a libertarian party and all of us are in the green square of the political compass to varying degrees. As a party we're big on protecting and expanding freedom - for example, we are proposing to extend the franchise to 16-year-olds - young adults who can have a job, pay tax get married, and join the armed forces. We also have a record of voting unanimously or near-unanimously against several extremely authoritarian bills, such as a bill which would have forced sterilisation on 90% of the British population and a bill which would have forced children to sing the national anthem every day and which would have banned non-British languages from being spoken in schools, as well as a bill proposed by a Ukip MP and seconded by a Conservative which would have effectively deprived women, children and vulnerable men of the freedom to leave their homes in safety by allowing convicted rapists to walk scot free.

    You must have joined the Conservatives by accident then. Correct your mistake and vote Labour.

    They? So you don't consider yourself part of labour? Are you having issues?

    No, I'm not having any issues whatsoever and I do consider myself part of labour. I was referring to the party as a whole. Perhaps it was a wrongly-worded phrase.
