    Well, at least you vaguely remember me - I did something right.
    I do remember you by the way. I just couldn't connect the username with the person.

    I should probably know this but are currently sitting proxy MPs allowed to stand in the by-election?
    No, I will have to remove JoeL from the usergroup now.

    Haven't gotten a rep from you since 21/06/16... you need to rep more people in that case...
    I thought I was quite generous with repping people. I tried to rep your post again and for some reason, it let me do it this time. So you now have a rep and a PRSOM from me for the same post. Lucky you.

    Two members are on holiday, and we have sufficient proxies for them, so no. We would simply rather see a strengthened left.
    Your lack of self interest sickens me good sir.

    JoeL1994 Who would you like to see win the leadership challenge of the RL Labour Party
    Owen Smith, although I like how Corbyn sparked interest in both the Labour party and politics in general last year.

    It did say I couldn't give you rep the first time but I'm glad you feel honoured.

    Half of Farage's manifesto consists of attacking others rather than stating what he will do.

    Some things never change.

    Better to be progressive than regressive.

    None of the candidates talk about housing, none about transport, nothing about education for those under 18, which is disappointing. I profoundly disagree with reducing the overall level of overseas aid, even though I think some of it presently goes to the wrong places. The Low Emission Zones in cities in the UK would be a welcome step, so I have voted for the candidate who advocates this, and am happy to work with him on this should he be elected.

    The idea of abolishing Christianity as the main religion in this country is a world away from the proposal I had of disestablishing the CofE allowing it to operate independently and give the Royal Family the same choice of which Christian church to belong to (or none).

    I believe our last bi-elelction manifesto contained something on education, which if is the case why it isn't mentioned this time round. As for transport it seems to be something actively being discussed at the moment and wouldn't be a new or interesting pledge/promise of a bi-election manifesto imo. I do agree something on housing would have been nice to see, especially from the government candidate.

    This.

    How does he intend to make Britain safe? Even though I'm not voting for him, at least JoeL has given a list of precise things he plans to do.
