    Thank you for the restrained compliment.

    We heard her case, voted and decided that once someone serves their time forgiveness is the best way to heal. Though I imagine the Tories might have taken a slightly different approach.
    I'm sure we'd have given it careful and considered thought... while we coincidentally arranged a public hanging.

    The second to last one was just marred by errors. Infighting caused by several members who got banned and deceptions caused by duping coupled with inexperience and overeagerness of the higher ups (myself especially) were too much for it to cope with. But in the legislative sense it was not a poor government (especially once we shed ourselves of those pesky Libs ). The last Labour government was a beaut. Cheers Fez.
    C'mon now, I thought we had made up again? :cry2:

    Yeah, I have to say your grunts are actually eager to produce stuff (which is not bad if we overlook the ideology) whereas we mainly like to criticise it. Anyway, why the heck did you choose to allow the duping bane of your government back in?

    As much as I must admit I like being the centre of attention, it's really got rather little to do with whether this underperforming government that, in my opinion, does not particularly represent the House or the voters, to continue. If you really want to debate, feel free to quote me in the Bar or Skype, and I'll tell you how I'm so amazing they practically had no choice (I kid, I kid - I'm very grateful for the forgiveness)

    I was not interested in your opinion, but his. I see a huge difference between allowing a traitor to re-join the game and re-join the team that he betrayed, and Ray doesn't strike me as someone who's open to unnecessary liabilities or forgives cheating quickly, especially when you presumably had the option of joining the Socialist party or going independent. Ray's answer satisfied my curiosity and I'm certainly not interested in ‘debating’ this any further.

    Well that's fortunate, since on this occasion I'm afraid it's you, not Ray, undergoing a vote of no confidence

    No need to get cocky… I'm not guilty of scheming, cheating, backstabbing my own party, lying to everyone for an extended period of time, etc. You lied even in your post-ban statement which was posted using a different account. In our case, the performance just isn't stellar. :dontknow:

    In fact, seeing this considerable difference, I wonder why we're not getting another chance.

    It's not a matter of cockyness - I honestly think this vote will be knife-edge, but it's a statement of fact that this vote is about your government, not me or Ray. Nobody is proposing your party is banned for six months for mediocre governence, as amusing as some may find that.

    No. You're just guilty of being racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic person who thinks it's appropriate to make mental health references knowing full well there are people in the House who suffer from such conditions.

    Anyway, regarding the VoNC, will you be making a statement or can't you be bothered?

    Don't worry. Ray loves the Liberals really.

    Because an individual breaking rules is rather different to a democratically accountable government failing? I'm nothing but a Labour member, accountable to precisely nobody and with no power to influence the passage of legislation, let alone take charge of every department.

    I meant if Labour members are so forgiving.

    FYI, I'm formally diagnosed with that made-up syndrome myself so I believe it's the same as black people calling themselves ‘******’. :laugh:

    I'm sure the proposers would echo me in saying that this isn't about punishing you, the Conservative Party, or the Government. We're just not bitter types like that. It's about attempting to install a government that will be more active, innovative and representative.

    The fact that you feel your accountable to nobody is probably one of the critisisms relating to Ray admitting you.

    In a democratic sense, I am. I hold no position of power or representation that someone can vote me out of. I'm only accountable in the sense that I represent my party as a member, in the same way I do as a Labour member in real life. Very, very different to a democratically elected government.

    LOL Good at producing empty media statements, yet poor at noticing what your colleagues let out when they think no one else is listening. I suggest you ask them (especially quack and aspie) about their true motivation, why your leader—the Leader of Her Majesty's Most Loyal Opposition—refused to even second any of the three motions of no confidence, or why quack attempted to talk hazzer into submitting the second one if the government is truly so disastrous. :dontknow:

    Actually it might be more appropriate for you to do so, since I must state once more that this vote concerns you, not me. Honestly, should this vote fail I hope that you can deliver on what you've promised and learn from the mistakes of the first half of this term - it's a hard task and you'd do well to step up to it rather than spend your time throwing accusations at arbitary members of the opposition party.

    Sorry, you must be confusing me with quack there so I shall quote him for you and you can discuss this between yourselves, okay? Grand!
