    It was a victory for them too.
    I would say it was a failure for Labour, you failed to pass your own EU Referendum Bill despite being in Government. You only delivered on an election promise by the action of the other parties. But you can think of it as you wish

    It was in the manifesto/supported by every single party to be precise.
    Indeed.

    That slash means that statement isn't all that precise.
    As I recall the only party without it in was UKIP and their support goes without saying.

    *shrug* We didn't promise specifics. We promised a referendum. Its note even a point of debate.

    I don't think the Liberals, Socialists or Tories mentioned it - and of course neither did Ukip or the 3 indies.

    Oh, I thought they did because I remember being yelled at for suggesting that they didn't support it.

    All done mate, given that I assume the seats are occupied, is there anything I can do for the MHoC?
    Well when MPs take breaks etc. we get in proxy MPs so this being the summer you may well MP for a week or two. However all Labour MPs can debate bills and even write them. Within Labour you'll also have the exact same rights to vote in our internal elections, stand in our internal elections or submit party motions.

    The only difference between a Labour member and a Labour MP is that MPs can submit bills to the Speaker and vote in the Division Lobby.

    As we don't have constituencies our MPs essentially represent the party membership, which is all of us.

    We will process your application which may take a few days I'm afraid - once done you'll be able to chat and socialise in our private Labour sub-forum but until then feel free to ask myself (Leader of the TSR Labour Party) or the Acting Speaker toronto353 (current Speaker Birchington is on holiday) or junaidk7 (Deputy Leader of the TSR Labour Party) any questions you may have as well as getting yourself acquainted to the House.

    Best,

    What are the differences between TSR Labour and RL Labour? Are you more right wing, left wing?

    I've not been here long so I thought I would get a feel of the Labour party!

    Maybe now is the time to give the new member a seat, and reduce your personal number of seats to 6 :P

    That was a beautiful introduction, thanks a lot, I am hoping to get to know the Shadow Work and Pensions and Shadow BIS, since these are the areas I am interested in

    We hadn't figured out our stance at the time on the EU. And spacing.

    Labour, since King Stannis has been banned and I see he was in the MP user group again, who will be replacing him as an MP?
