    The House's right-wingers keep producing nonsensical, reactionary rubbish (though this, thankfully, is a joke) but it's the 'radical lefties' such as myself that put forward protected foreign spending (creating a more stable world), terrorism legislation (giving powers to authorities and tougher sentencing) and look after soldiers and veterans.

    Except you cut the DFID lower limit, then put forwards plans to spend below that, and protect defence spending at a lower level than pledged by the right and then whipped against an increase

    Foreign aid spending does more for national security than defence spending.

    It can be posted to the Commons Bar. There is no reason to disguise poor jokes as bills and submit them through the Speaker.

    Unless it's stolen and used to buy weapons and destroy whole villages.

    Yes, that's true. That's why I believe in interventionism to depose governments who may take such actions. However, Islam extremism, for instance, isn't caused because Islam as a religion is intrinsically more violent than any other, but rather because it predominates in poorer areas of the world which have more reasons to be angry. The best route to combat it long term is to promote economic development in those countries.

    That one which was also a joke didn't blame the left for all the problems of the world. And you'll find that my post doesn't criticise this bill it criticises the holier-than-thou right-wingers with the gall to call those of us actually improving our world 'cucks'.

    Pretty sure I voted against any Bill which tried to cut foreign spending - which would also have come before I joined Labour.
