    Given that we're not affiliated with rl Labour, probably no-one. I am however considering tabling a motion condemning what happened in Iraq.
    I would welcome a debate in the House on the Chilcot report and the decision to go to war in Iraq.

    Which of the team will issue a formal apology on behalf of the Labour Party for the mistakes of the Iraq war?
    Our biggest Blairite of recent terms was Fez but he can't apologise for obvious reasons.

    Neither would he, in all likelihood.

    So would I. Saracen's Fez - would it be possible for you to occasionally set up debates in the House for big events like this?

    No wonder the French think so little of our produce

    At least soggy cabbages are better than rock hard ones.

    Given I doubt anybody here is going to ever be through volume 1, let alone soon, of the report I somehow doubt it's worth the effort, but given it's you it will happen anyway

    The best way to create a formal (i.e. outside of the Bar) debate is for someone to submit a motion.

    Fair enough. You recently mentioned you were considering getting some old legislation back for a further source of debate. Will you be doing this at some point?

    One thing that should be said about it is that you shouldn't accept similar legislation, same topic sure, but clearly original content

    What do you mean by similar, because I see no problem with accepting a resubmission from a previous era?

    I mean almost identical because it's just lazy and gives the illusion of activity; if people care enough about the topic to want it enacting they can at least rewrite it

    I also think it should have less debate time if put forwards close enough to the legacy debate

    Ah right, you mean if someone decides to submit something very similar to a classic bill as an actual bill?
