    You can watch TV and use the internet at the same time
    Actually thanks to the invention of mobile internet you can socialise, watch TV and use the internet all at once with relatively ease if you so desire.

    How about going out and socialising or watching TV in your spare time?
    Socialising? What is this? I only communicate with people when there's a few hundred kilometres of fibre optic cable between me and them... :lol:

    I almost feel like you're saying this only because someone complained about people who say this in the bar just minutes ago. But fair. Remember that TSR Labour are not necessarily the same.

    I'm interested in the fact that path dependency is apparently alive and kicking.

    To be honest I don't really know much about Politics and I'm just not that into it but I do listen to what other people have said about all the different parties and from what I have heard I decided that Labour is the best one out of all of them

    Has anyone proposed that electoral voting be by Single Transferable Vote (STV)?

    I wasn't pleased that I could only vote for one party

    It's great to see that you at least have some political interest but be wary of voting for parties just because your friends or family do. For example many people vote Labour because they are delluded enough to think they are socialist in RL, the reality is that the current Labour lot are centrists and their voting record reflects this. You friends especially probably hate on Tories and Lib Dems for a number of entirely flawed reasons such as cutting EMA despite the fact you can get more with the bursary that replaced it or raised tuition fees despite the fact you pay nothing up front.

    TSR Labour is purely socialist and has seized Canadian pension money so if your of the radical left they are indeed up your street.

    Let your family and friends be the spark that ignites your interest but read around the various parties and perhaps read the manifestos to develop your own views, i myself am a lone Tory in a sea of communist red.

    It's being discussed but the forum software makes it difficult and also the current voting system in general is very proportional.

    Increasing the price of what?

    In what circumstances do you personally believe that people deserve benefit entitlements? (just curious as to you beliefs)
