    I, Saoirse, do joyfully, sincerely and truly declare and affirm, that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the citizens of Britain, their descendants and our shared world.
    Since we're doing oaths, here goes:

    I, cranbrook_aspie, do sincerely declare and affirm that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the people and their descendants, without regard to race, faith, gender or sexuality, to the best of my ability and according to the law. So help me God!

    Dearbhaím ó chroí agus a dhaingniú mise, cranbrook_aspie, go mbeidh mé dílis agus beidh air dílseacht fíor do na daoine agus a sliochtaigh, gan aird ar cine, reiligiún, inscne nó gnéasacht, chomh fada agus is mo chumas agus de réir an dlí. Mar sin, cabhrú liom Dia!

    I find it difficult to give the Liberals the same level of respect I do other parties when the Liberals' existence is based on joining any party that offers them a good deal. The Liberal deputy leader has declared he likes the Liberals to be king-makers; a party should exist to do more than base their political agenda on forming deals with who makes them the best offer. I hope the electorate are aware next election that a vote for the Liberals is a vote for the Greens, the Conservatives, Labour, UKIP, or the Centre Party depending on how the Liberals feel.

    I think it's hilarious that your opinion of me, which is quite clearly fairly low, allows you to have less respect for my party.

    I do like it when we are Kingmakers, I do not deny that for a single second. It allows us to push forward moderate, liberal policies.

    In a private conversation between ourselves, I said I would only be content if we were in government, given the way the seats played out, as if we were not in government, we'd be left with a ConUKIP government. No thanks. Furthermore, being in Government with Labour gives us a chance to push through moderate, liberal policies, which I hope you will see over the coming term.

    Also Nigel, Why so salty?

    Edit: I also find your lack of respect for our private conversation shocking.

    I Congratulate the Liberals on once again being in government again . And I find it hard see this government lasting until the end of the term . Not because of the members in it or the polices but because we have had to VONCs this year and a few months back the liberals left the coalition. I wish the governing parties well and lets hope they prove me wrong and hopefully we can have a stable government until the end of the term

    As I said, she can go right ahead. Support for a republic will treble overnight. Please, go for it



    Mainly due to a slightly lower turnout at the end of term and a relatively large number of abstentions, the majority as conventionally calculated on bills (Ayes minus Nays) was 12 with only 11 MPs in opposition. It was supported by members from every party in the House including a UKIP MP, a former Conservative Prime Minister, and the Liberal leader. It's an exemplar of the kind of quality legislation I hope we will produce much more of this term.
    Even of those that voted you barely had a majority, and if you want to go for the "a person from every party" then surely most Acts, and bills even, will also be prime examples of polypartisanship, hell, I think even the hunting repeal attempt nearly had all parties, definitely had Con-Kip-Lib-Lab

    I hardly think that Liberal leaders and Tory Prime Ministers would be voting for it if it was as unreasonable a reform of treason laws as you suggest.

    Except that isn't the proper way now... Back in parliament XX we changed it to an agnostic, republican version as I recall.

    As I stated multiple times in the thread, it was done in such a way as to try to coerce the right into voting for it, bundling changes in the penalties for terrorism offences, something that is unrelated to treason, in with the attempts to decriminalise republicanism; and as I also said at the time, it unnecessarily repeals up to 6 pieces of legislation (not sure it's all 6, but definitely some of them), which is sloppy.
