    What is it that makes you Labour guys have some kind of a fetish for huge bombastic signatures? You're like a living Napoleon complex brochure.
    Its called party-wide consistency!

    I called it uniformity and then everyone compared us to various dictatorships.

    They're just jealous because the TSR Labour Party manages to be the most united (and yet diverse), organised party in the House whilst maintaining a plurality of seats and active leadership. Its a shame the RL Party is a relative mess.

    I feel like running some form of unity analysis later

    With the Labour party divided, even on the front benches on air strikes on ISIS; what is the TSR Labour Party's view on this which is being proposed?
    Personal view is Strongly against what will serve as nothing but a recruitment tool for IS, believe most agree.

    Isn't the standard position generally to bend over for our traditional enemies, and by traditional I mean of the last few decades rather than real traditional

    Personally I oppose them at the present time. We have no credible plan for what we want to happen in Syria with so many different groups involved, and Cameron's idea of relying on 70,000 Syrian groundtroops with unknown affilliations and reports that nearly half of them are "less moderate but open to dialogue" is extremely worrying. Any action taken should be with a specified aim to bring stability to the country and a clear exit plan.

    It is much the same here, except we haven't had tempers flare like they apparently did in the PLP meeting, and we don't normally set a whip anyway.

    There shouldn't be any whipping at all for this bill, it really should be left up to the own MP's point of view, hence I agree with Corbyn giving a free vote.

    My natural response is usually NO to bombs or invasions, but I'm open to being convinced, on that part I've yet to hear a good, coherent argument for why we should bomb, with the predicted consequences for Syria and Britain included.

    Something like;
    - Bombing Raqqa will kill x amount of civilians but y amount of ISIS militia
    - We'll be financially backing x
    - We'll back Assads reunion of Syria
    - Back a free Kurdistan
    - Are prepared to stay for 10 years if need be
    - Anticipate repercussions in Britain

    Absolutely shameful that none of those have been adequately argued for. Labour I don't mind a free vote but I think that some are just using it to undermine Corbyn, pathetic to invade a country to undermine your leader if you ask me.

    Does the party, while in government, have any plans to undertake any significant nationalisation work?

    There is likely to be some nationalisation of some sort.

    Thank you! Given I may need to be a bit of an Iron Lady now I guess a good pint of Thatchers is the appropriate celebratory beverage
