I would like to ask the right honourable member, our prime minister, what he intends to do about the housing crisis in this country?
I'd like to work on something similar to the Socialist/Labour Appropriation of Abandoned Housing bill. Some good ideas in there and it would be good to work on a bill with some of the original authors if they're still around.

A particularly good idea in my opinion, is the the public ownership of abandoned housing.

I would like to ask the right honourable member, our prime minister, not just what his stance on fracking is, but what he thinks the government will one day decide on the matter?

Posted from TSR Mobile
No surprises that I am fully against fracking, time and time again it has proven to be detrimental to the environment but it is continuing to go forward in search of non-renewables when investment would be much better spent on renewable energy sources.

I can't say what Labour and the Liberals' view on fracking is as we haven't discussed a bill or motion on the matter as of yet.

First of all I congratulate the Rt. Honourable member for being the first Green PM in TSR-land.

May I ask the PM what thinks in regards to the EU? If he is in support of a referendum, would he also support a referendum on the Monarchy?
I thank the Rt. Honourable member for his congratulations and in turn congratulate him on becoming leader of the Conservatives.

In regards to the EU, I think we're better off in it than out of it, a recycled phrase but I feel it fits the question well. Obviously, there's things that could be improved but for now we'd do well to stay in.

At this time, I'm not in support of a referendum, I still remember the last one and I think it's too soon at the moment.

The monarchy is gone, let's move on.

Pinching my question!

Will the Prime Minister therefore comment more specifically on his views regarding freedom of movement between EU and EEA countries (a founding principle I might add), in particular following the comments by Chancellor Merkel that she would rather Britain leave the EU that remove freedom of movement?
I'm in support of freedom of movement to an extent. Though UKIP will spout nonsense about immigrants destroying our economy, we'd be pretty much screwed without immigration. Also, I haven't seen the hordes of Romanians and Bulgarians since they were allowed to enter the country either.

May I formally congratulate the Rt. Hon Prime Minister on his appointment to this most prestigious office. Can he inform the House wether he supports proposals to 'reset' the economic record?
I thank my Rt. Honourable friend for hos congratulations.

Reset the economic record? As in TSR-Land?

If so then yes, it would be great to keep tabs on expenditures and revenues and the like because at the moment despite attempts to calculate it, it seems to be too difficult.

Sorry if that's not answering your question, not sure I fully understood it.

Mr Speaker, in light of events in Ukraine and Iraq/Syria will the new Prime Minister reject the pacifism and cuts to defense of the last government and embrace the pragmatic need to eradicate the Islamists and protect the European border from Russian aggression.
I'd still be cautious about putting boots on the ground, though I'd still support continuing air strikes and humanitarian aid to Iraq.

I would not be in support of action against Russia at this time.

Is the Prime Minister embarrassed that an independent MP wrote out the proposals for the Presidential system, beating his party and the other traitors to it?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Why? M_L wrote up the amendment before we even formed a government and he asked government MP's to support it. Is UKIP embarrassed that they can't even produce simple arithmetic in their bills?

Traitors? Calm down.

We already have kept tabs on the economic record. Myself, Birch and Qwertish costed every bill to the start of the 18th parliament.

I wish you'd stop with the Russian aggression BS, Russian aggression towards the EU is a non-starter, the Ukrainian situation is different due to how Ukraine is the birthplace of Russia thus Russia doesn't want it to go Westwards towards the EU which is fair enough if you look at the history of the two countries, Ukraine belongs to Russia.

----

Mr Speaker, may I start by congratulating the first Green PM of TSR Land and I wish him all the best for the coming term

My question is as follows, does the PM feel that the UK would be better off in a free trade agreement outside of the European Union with immigration controls or by staying in the EU without immigration controls?

One also would hope you'd end all sanctions on Russia and Russian people

That is exactly what I meant - I'm glad the Prime Minister shares my view and hope it will be turned to action over the course of this term.

Thank you.

For my second question, to what extent does he think corruption is existent in our local government system? I ask this after some more revelations about Tower Hamlets Council's internal practices today, which is added to a lengthy list of charges against the council and the Mayor, which was highlighted in M265 last term.

Mr Speaker, I do not reject the history of Ukraine and Russia, I simply choose to embrace its future and strategic self interest. Russian expansion must not be tolerated at the cost of western expansion.

If the Rt Hon member is suggesting that borders be defined by history then will he support leaving the EU to embrace a union with our brethren in the Anglosphere.

Mr Speaker,

The Prime Minister is no doubt aware that hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees have sought to cross the Mediterranean over the last year, fleeing from extreme deprivation and conflict, often in dangerously overcrowded ships. The Italian navy has rescued 100,000 people over this period but unfortunately 3,000 people have still died this year. This mission has recently been shut down by the Italian authorities. Its replacement, an EU mission called 'Triton', has only a third of the funding, covers a very limited geographical area and has yet to receive any British support.

Can the Prime Minister therefore confirm that the UK intends to provide meaningful assistance to the Triton mission, and also confirm whether he intends to push for an EU-led mission to go further and provide search-and-rescue services across the entire sea?

As a former PM can I wish Superunknown all the best for his new role and hope he thoroughly enjoys his time in the job.

Mr Speaker, obviously at the moment the House is debating the introduction of the role of President of the republic, The idea of which of course was a suggestion from a government in which the prime minister served. Can I ask the prime minister what his and his government's response would be in the event that the amendment fails to pass?

May I ask the Honourable Gentleman on his thoughts for the constitutional future of the United Kingdom as a family of nations, in light of recent events concerning the "vow" made to the people of Scotland before the independence referendum, the demands for greater devolution within England and proposals likewise to give Wales and Northern Ireland greater autonomy?
I am in full support of greater devolution to Scotland and Wales as well, I believe these are areas that need to be managed locally and mostly outside of Westminster, though I believe that the British Republic is a family of nations and should stay together but with a greater degree of autonomy in some areas.

Northern Ireland is a special case and on the comments made by my colleague TBM, should have limited devolved powers for now.

(Original post by The Legal Eagle)
Thank you Mr Speaker.

I would firstly like to associate myself with colleagues in congratulating my Rt. Hon. Friend, the Prime Minister, on his election to office, as the first Green Party Prime Minister. And may I also wish him well in his time as Prime Minister.

Could the Rt. Hon. Gentleman please inform the House his position on the current drugs policy?
I thank my Rt. Honourable friend for his congratulations and I look forward to working with him over the coming term.

My position on drugs is that some 'soft' drugs should be legalised.

On more 'harder' drugs, users shouldn't be punished for using but be given help instead.

Suppliers of hard drugs should be punished, however.

(Original post by Nigel Farage MEP)
I would like to ask the Prime Minister for his opinions on the country's education system but more importantly the stance his government is going to adopt with potential for reform?
There should be reform of the system currently in place and though I can't go into specifics, we are working on something in government that we hope will produce a more well-rounded education for HE students.

Thank you Mr speaker. Can I firstly say how highly I hold the prime minister in regard for becoming the first green MP to be the prime minister. In relation to the current Ebola crisis, what measures will the UK take to ensure the people of Britain are shielded, and have the highest level of protection possible?
I thank you for your comments, it's a great feeling to have my party as the largest party in government for the first time ever.

I feel the current measures in place, such as screening people from highly affected areas are sufficient. I feel the recent bills and motions that have been put forward blow the whole outbreak way out of proportion. This disease has been around for many years and has barely even touched these shores. Should the need for further measures come up then this will be looked at again but I highly doubt the need for that will arise.
