    I fail to see what the size of the shadow cabinet has to do with QQ resigning but okay.
    Cutting down so much implies very few people active or willing enough to do the job, and now you're down one more; you have several members that seem to be considering jumping to the socialists.

    How long until the two-bill-in-two-months, one-dead-party government collapses?
    You forget that this government contains me, and i am an output machine.

    Give it a few days and you'll see, you'll all see!

    Now's the time to recognise that QQ was a very new member who reached an impressive position and worked hard - not the time for snide asides.

    An output machines whose focus is mistakenly on quantity; I hope the items being produced are quality.

    We have one member in a duel membership with the socialists, last I checked one isn't several.

    Secondly we cut down the shadow cabinet under Fez, before he became speaker, Fez believed we should adopt a system similar to the one in the Welsh Assembly, and his successor QQ didn't see much need to change this. Perhaps QQ's successor will want to have a larger shadow cabinet, perhaps not, titles for the sake of titles however would be pointless as I am sure you would agree.

    You don't actually know the precise reason why he resigned and if you did, I'd like to hope you wouldn't be making these comments. I'm obviously not going to say here without permission, but it's a major thing that he's having to deal with in his offline life right now.

    If we had a bloated shadow cabinet (noting that shadow cabinet roles are much less active than cabinet roles) where we just gave people fancy titles for doing barely anything then you'd have criticised us for that. I personally believe that both the front bench should be much, much smaller than in RL (there's only 50 MPs after all).

    Not quite (though the Cabinet there is smaller and the number of ministers is limited by law to 12), I just borrowed a couple of title designations I think.

    Maybe that is what I was thinking of rather than making it more like the welsh cabinet, although am I correct in remembering you did decrease the number of shadow cabinet positions/roles.

    I did, yes, because I didn't feel it necessary to give everyone a fancy title.

    People are becoming sick and tired of this left wing liberal bs . I can assure you that the labour party will not win the next general election. When has a labour prime minister ever done anything good ? Blair is a war criminal for god sakes . And you're current head of party is nothing more than a vile communist

    Thank god Blair isn't in the TSR Labour Party then, and last I checked I am acting leader and not a communist.

    Out of those two (Blair and Corbyn) which is it? You support a strong military strategy like invading Iraq or support a pacificistic stance?

    Corbyns not a communist BTW. Why EXACTLY is he vile? That strikes me as personal?
