    No! Idle scroungers...
    Deserving poor... Call them what you want, but many do not want to be in that position and want jobs, something people can't seen to believe or understand.

    Id like to see the NHS removed and replaced by a system of free healthcare for under 18s and possibly compulsory insurance. If you have to unsure your car you should have to insure your body.

    Massive reduction in benefits all round and reinvest that money in education, infrastructure and public safety.

    Give me a minute to look at your policies and I can tell you where we differ.
    While it's not really worth continually putting this to the house and having everyone reject it, I favour the idea of keeping universal health insurance, but having a reduction in the rate of income tax for people with health insurance that meets a minimum standard, so as to avoid people missing out on healthcare, but allowing private insurance companies to compete (with prices effectively capped at a certain percentage of income)

    Of course I'm just trying to see other people thoughts at the moment.

    Immigration should be limited to highly skilled workers.
    Welfare spending should be minimal; only for very needy cases. (Sorry that's still vague.
    Israel FTW.
    The best thing the UK can do for climate change is convince the US to form tighter regulations.
    The military shod continue to change into a small but specialised force.
    Sunday the day or Sunday the ice cream? Either should be covered in whipped cream.
    I'd agree, but I don't like the view on the military, we should have them grown, and to not increase territorial army.

    "Republican" in the UK means anti-monarchism or Irish nationalism.

    Well we're all suggesting that they shouldn't be Republicans.

    If there proves to be the need for a new party, what should they be called?

    First of all, welcome to the MHoC Even if your formation attempt is unsuccessful, I hope you stick around.

    Just so you know; I'm the Speaker and it is I that has the final say as to whether this goes ahead. For your attempt to be successful, I'd like to see ten supporters of a reasonable standing and some kind of demonstration that your proposal would bring something new to our community, something special that isn't served up by the other parties in the House.

    My concerns right now are that much of what you strive for might already be covered in the Conservative or Libertarian parties; and maybe even UKIP.

    If you have any questions (either on this or on anything MHoC related) then either PM me or visit the Ask the Speaker thread in my sig.

    Just out of curiosity, is there a right of appeal against your decision on matters like this? Or do you simply hear submissions / applications, rule on it, and that decision is final?

    If not, are you not already giving an indication as to what your decision will be by raising your concerns at the moment without receiving an actual application and commenting on the similarity of this proposed party with the Conservatives/Libertarian/UKIP.

    Just an observation!

    There isn't really. People are always able to PM me or raise an issue in Ask the Speaker and I'm always happy to listen to what they have to say, but there isn't really anything official you can do to question a ruling other than go the full mile and put it to a vote of no confidence.

    I have been wondering for the past few weeks if there is something that can be done about this, if we can maybe implement something for members to question my rulings and make me a bit more accountable without doing it through the ad-hoc Ask the Speaker method. I think I may have an idea which I'll discuss next term unless something makes me realise in that time that it's a bad idea.

    We could hypothetically create a Lords that could do this. I mean obviously that's of debatable wisdom and would be difficult to make work, but it could be one way. Have, say, a three member chamber, one of the purposes of which was basically to be the supreme court.

    Thanks for sharing your view on this, which by the way, I think follows logic, and is very reasonable.

    Sounds like a plan! Maybe a condition of appointment could be for any appointee to give up their party membership / whip.

    Yeah I just put up a thread in my party sub forum that has that suggestion. I mean it doesn't have to be apolitical but it does need to not have MPs in it.

    I'm considering trying to form a new party, the Republican Party. The party would fill a gap that I believe exists in the TSR Commons by being a more right wing, capitalism driven party. We would draw influences from the basic principles of the American Rebublican Party of the pre Bush administration and the attitude and strengths of the Ancient Roman Republic and base out government in looking out for the best interests of the state and the people.

    Our primary principles could be summarised by:

    Low taxes, equal opportunities for all and most importantly, social responsibility.

    I believe hard working citizens should not pay for the irresponsibility of others.

    No other parties work hard enough to promote these principles.

    This is only an overview and policies will of course be decided once I hear other's ideas and opinions on the overall principles.

    Would anyone be interested in helping me form a right wing party that shakes off the stereotyped view of the right being 'racist' or 'Facists'?
    If you want your Fascist ideology for the basis of a new party, why choose Republicanism, I am a republican and also a socialist.
