    It does not necessarily mean spending cuts
    I know, but for the sake of making a point.

    I welcome your support for the NHS.

    On a separate note, is there going to be a mass PM?

    And the Compulsory Rugby in Schools Bill, then the Dry Summers (Prohibition) Bill.



    They are not!
    Out of interest, are you Welsh?

    Greetings from Strasbourg! I've not read the manifestos in full as I am on mobile but when I'm in Brussels (later today) I will try.

    Please let the House know where there is a good cafe for Belgian beer in Brussels as the one near Horta metro has closed.

    And vote Green!

    I'll see what I can do, good sir.

    While I would love to do as you wish, but as Liberal deputy leader I cannot.

    I have to say, I thought Whiggy might stand.
    I intended to, although thought I was too new to make an impact.

    Rakas21 I would also point out that there are no concrete policies in the Con manifesto either

    Some blaming and some platitudes but no actual substance at all
    See LP's spoiler on page 1, it contains a good list of infrastructure plans approved by the party.

    Very good

    But on a serious note, Labour is an inclusive party that seeks to, among other things, stand up for and promote the rights of all disadvantaged or underrepresented groups in society, of whom mute people are only one, when often no-one else is. One need only look at the Labour-written amendment to the Equality Act this term, protecting those who do not feel sexual attraction from discrimination at work.

    Here's a friendly reminder to:

    Vote Liberal!

    Especially if you want to see your personal allowance increase, a reduction in Tuition Fees and more money into Education and the NHS.

    How on earth can you justify increasing to £13000?
