    Theoretically there's nothing that says parties even have to contest elections as individual entities. You could for example contest the election as a Labour-Socialist alliance with an agreement to split the seats 70/30 no matter the result.
    That's a good point actually.

    Not that it'd ever happen haha

    Surprised. Why? Do you feel you no longer fit with the current leadership team?
    (Original post by The Financier)
    Why? :eek:
    You're both in the Skype chat so I refer you to what I said there.

    Presumably too many people sat and farted on you today, correct?
    I have no idea what you mean by that but in short it was a case of too many things being said about me that weren't true based on either limited evidence or misunderstanding of the evidence.

    Why can it not be made public. Ik Skype has a lot of us, but surely this is something that should consequently be on MHoC record

    Well, can't complain about labour in turmoil

    It was what I said to LP, just worded more longwindedly.

    Labour isn't quite in turmoil yet. Our internal issues have now been as good as resolved as far as I'm concerned, and no-one has taken anything personal from it.

    Unless the dark side is the list of people who used to hold leadership positions within parties, no

    My condolences, you were an amazing chair from what I have seen. I trust this isn't much to do with me?

    Not directly, but it's to do with the fallout from the way i handled your application to join. Nothing you could have controlled of course.

    If you were pressured partly to step down because of that then I am quite disappointed in the Labour party tbh. You're great in the MHoC.

    No no, i wasn't pressured, the opposite in fact. It's just that I came under heavy criticism, most of which was wrong, a lot of it based on (what were admittedly completely natural)misconceptions, and that happens every time i make a serious mistake, and it seriously affects my depression.

    Ah, I see. I'm a massive supporter of keeping your mental health in check. You have to do what you have to do.
