    Pretty sure it's the job of the party to do that, not the speaker, especially if we wish to maintain the integrity of the speaker's impartiality.

    That Bearded Man will be proxying for Boyonwheels' seat until the conclusion of the MP Election. I have asked him to apply to the user group.

    Sorry, it's 1am

    I'll make that decision once I've had a bit more experience of the Socialists and how they operate.

    I wonder if Ray or Fez would have let this happen. If QQ considers you an asset then neither his nor the parties self interest is served by permitting you dual membership with the socialists. If your considered a liability then he should simply close the door and tell you your better off there.

    I'm afraid QQ that your current actions represent a grave act of weakness or indecision (which is still often weakness).

    My decisions do not represent any weakness at all. I even put the issue of dual memberships to the party recently through a poll and they voted against them, unless in exceptional circumstances, a bracket that both TDA and Cranbrook come under.

    What is better: to have a party member who doesn't want to be in the party and is pissed off at the leadership for not letting them have a dual membership and who will probably end up just defecting, or a party member who is exploring their options and who the party has a chance to convince to stay?

    So TDA is now in your party. Interesting (and damning for the Socialists).

    I'm not convinced C is an exceptional circumstance. You putting his self interest before the parties which you were ultimately to put first.

    Assuming your considered an asset then i'd leave you annoyed. When Financier left for the Liberals we never sat back and just waved him goodbye or let him fart around. We want after what we believed to be an asset to the party and brought him back.

    Ultimately the leadership here are elected to put the parties self interest first. Dual membership only serves yours.

    You are implying that somehow Cranbrook's dual membership is damaging for our party. Well if I had been stubborn and refused a dual membership, he could have left the party entirely which would have been even worse for the party.

    Winston Churchill had a word for those who capitulated out of fear of losing.. appeasement.

    A member who cannot prove their loyalty is not worth having and if a year or so inside Labour has led the opinion that he may be better off out then i'm not really sure why your delaying the inevitable.

    The irony of using Winston Churchill is very strong. One of the people in Labour who has a dual membership is related to him.

    Are you also looking for your sexuality?

    You either stay or go, it's very simple. No one in their right state of mind would allow you to do this IRL and it's definitely a sign of quam's weakness, but of course you'll say the opposite so why do I even bother…
