    joecphillips JoeL1994, as you are seemingly not receiving the messages from Petros asking you to change your votes to at least an Abstain, if not Aye, for this Government Bill, I thought I’d pass the message along! I'm also sure Petros doesn’t want to have to, at least temporarily, remove you from your seats if you continue to ignore him. Have a great evening

    I sure hope the Liberals are getting something in return for supporting this terrible bill. But judging by their RL counterparts, I very much doubt that's the case.

    Disgusting to see the liberals allowing themselves to be whipped on such illiberal *******s. Freedom of collective bargaining is so important.

    They had their chance to make it Conservative party policy rather than government policy, they didn't take it, their own fault.

    At least if it passes, we should be able to get it repealed next term when the Liberal party isn't bound by the Tory whip (which isn't even kinky).

    You two know shite about what had happened before this bill was submitted so let's not jump to uninformed conclusions, shall we? JD already told you more than he had to and I hope you can read between the lines and stop suggesting we're oppressing them or whatnot…

    I shall assume we're getting a referendum on AV in the near future then.

    it's not anti freedom of collective bargaining power, it's putting the collective back into collective bargaining power.

    imo this bill is incomplete. we should be introducing prison sentences foe unions who lie about government policy for political ends.

    As I've already explained, I think this argument is simply silly, but at least your misunderstanding of democracy is consistent.

    Two postal Ayes have been added for seats 8 (adam9317) and 13 (jennywenny for Lime-man).

    One double vote has been removed for seat 45 (Faland for nabillio) (–1 No).

    Is there any way you could be convinced to switching your votes from a nay to an aye, or an abstention?

    My mistake, I saw the thread was still open, concluding the poll was still open.

    What kind of government is this? It can't even pass a government bill! If all of its MPs voted aye, this bill would have passed.
