1) that's not the policy, both organisations are already illegal under international laws and thus specifically would not be joinable.

2) we don't believe in punishing people harshly for thought crimes as that will likely just lead to real crimes, but if you want 1984 as your manifesto by all means whine about it.

3) so we can do what? sit on our asses complaining about the party leadership whilst no major reforms to the UK's badly broken political system ever happen? I'll pass thanks.
1984? Yeah, not letting people join ISIS will totally lead to that.
Sitting on your asses voting for Green is a bigger waste of time than campaigning for the party of Tony Benn.

lol, okay, sorry to bring facts into a debate
I meant elected to government (which was obvious from the context) so said facts were both irrelevant, obvious and brought up as joke (as indicated by the emoticon).

Why should we be expected to join a party which appears to hold significantly different views and values to our own?
I'd wager the values of the Labour Party are very close to your own. The policies are another matter entirely.

Fair point. But surely policies reflect values?

Thank you, it took me 5 minutes over a £1 pint... That's right, £1 a pint in London (50p outside of London), you can't beat it! tehFrance will bring you that £1 a pint!

Naturally, I'm not expecting a win, I'm just hoping that ordinary folk listen to what I have to say and put pressure on others to do what I'd do.

If I get at least 2 votes, I'll be happy (I say 2 as I I'm one already :lol:).

Because the whole realm denies Labour's claim to government, from Dorne to the Wall.

I think a lot of the policies do reflect the values, some perhaps less so than others.

What has everyone done last night?

I've made it to the BBC, The Guardian, and The Daily Mail as an owl! Lemme know if you want my autograph.

The government removed the Monarchy in anticipation of my arrival. When I am King Labour shall be my hand.
