    i know what they are.

    I know but if DC had dismissed a LD back in 2012 without cleggys permission or consultantion things would have been bad. Indeed, whenever the left are in power only the party leader in charge of the minister can dismiss them and not the PM.
    I suggest you go preach your procedural opinions to people who are interested in hearing them.

    My honour goes beyond supporting this bill, you made this a choice between standing for what I believe in or supporting this bill, I chose to stand for my beliefs and that to me is more important than any position you could offer.

    did you not have the balls to say this before the bill was released?

    Well, it saves you from having to make excuses about not doing anything.

    I rarely see eye to eye with you but you just earned a lot of respect.

    An honourable MP would argue for their beliefs, an honourable MP would not ignore debate, refuse to make their feelings known to their leader, and leave the government's authority in ruin.

    If you informed PetrosAC of your decision, but the Liberal leader still refused vetoing the bill to make it a Conservative Party bill, the Liberal leader is more incompetent than I though: you should call a VoNC in Petros.

    Petros is a good leader who I have the upmost respect for, I would say he is the most honourable leader in MHoC

    I take that to mean that, as per usual, you were being a voting robot and didn't bother saying "actually, I don't like this"

    You have an odd perception of honour when the member you are calling honourable does not have the decency to tell his coalition partner the bill should be submitted as a Conservative bill because it will not be supported by all Liberal MPs, however, I believe you told Petros of your position after the bill was submitted, making you as much to blame as Petros.

    joecphillips is probably in the 10 most active MHoC users at the moment; calling him a 'voting robot' is misplaced.

    Petros respected my opinion and despite trying to convince me otherwise accepted my position, to me that is the making of a good leader rather than someone who doesn't respect people's opinions and demands they vote against their beliefs.

    In all fairness, Petros allowing it to run as a government bill improved its chances of passing as at least some of the Liberals will have been more likely to vote in favour or abstain as a result.

    If all government MPs had voted aye on that bill, it would have passed. This government couldn't even manage to get its MPs to vote for a government bill! What's the point in having this government if it cannot even pass its policies?
