    Now now, we only screwed you over a little bit....
    Not self-righteous about that - self-righteous about your government's militarism, contempt for migrants and generally horrendous items.

    But don't worry, we were happy to give you a crash course in good governance last term and I'm sure you'll do much better this time.

    Some of the technological/media-related areas should remain privatised such as parts of the BBC.
    So which parts of the BBC are privatised? It's a quango under public ownership

    For me it's a valuable cautionary tale.

    Glad to hear it, though that was mostly not to do with myself. I don't think you should have brought the NatLibs in. I doubt they'll be able to manage their activity and, to be honest, this will probably kill them.

    BBC Books and BBC Audiobooks are just a few examples.

    It was certainly an odd term and one I hope doesn't repeat itself any time soon.

    I can understand you questioning us bring the Nat Libs in, and it will be interesting to see if they can pick up activity or not.

    So who owns them? A commercial wing does not have tobe privately owned, or almost nothing can be nationalised

    As serving/former party leaders we know that government can seriously damage a party. Seems like the bigger picture was ignored by admitting them.

    Just because I am confident does not mean I am not serious.

    I thought Kingdom rulers were supposed to show leadership.

    I will remove that when I can. I still don't recall putting that in there though. I don't agree with Rand Paul's views at all and consider myself to be more left-wing than Blairites.

    I admire your confidence, but Quamquam was elected just today. I don't see you taking the reigns just yet. Show your potential, and then maybe people will want to vote for you.

    Have you joined TSR Labour?
