    So basically you're rather left wing but would rather be in a Labour party more right wing than the RL government than the socialists
    The only (active) person whose left-wingness is even questionable in Labour is Fez, and even then he's a centrist/slightly left of centre, not actually right-wing.

    That's the issue with brand name politics in this house. Although I think he would leave the moment they became blairite.

    should it not be left-wingedness?

    No, you don't say that someone is 'left-winged'.

    No, but wingedness sounds more right and is easier to say...

    Truth be told I thought it was going to come to that when Fez was elected leader. Fortunately, he's intelligent and has probably realised that a large chunk of the party does not share some of his Blairite views, so it hasn't come to that.

    No it isn't, you have to make an extra d sound in between 'wing' and 'ness'.

    Well it is for me... Maybe due to accent.

    I would like to ask: which already passed piece of legislation are you going to pledge to implement this time?

    I have removed junaidk7 and added KomradeKorbyn to the usergroup.


    KomradeKorbyn - please make sure you don't vote on anything that's already been voted on by junaidk7.

    When you're on a thread in the Division Lobby, click 'show poll results' underneath where you would vote, then click the numbers and there'll be a list of who has voted and how they voted

    Does the Labour Party commend Cameron for paying over £400k in taxes since 2010 (an effective tax rate of 37%), far more than the comrade ever will. Think of how many nurses and doctors salaries he's funding.

    He'll be paying way more tax than that, remember it's only the income based taxation.

    Why would we commend him for doing something he's legally required to do and tries to get out of where he legally can?

    Hear, hear. I should be commended for going to school, even though it was a legal requirement.

    Care to point out who has been vilifying him for the taxes they paid, as opposed to the ones he didn't?
