What on earth are you on about??
The wiki says Labour have only six seats. Does that mean they have six seats? No, the information is simply incorrect.

What I consider immature is your habit of making definite statements based on partial sources, being told otherwise, and then adding some more unnecessary statements to almost argue with the person who corrected you.

As the king of spare time, you can use your magical power to edit the wiki to reflect reality and we shall thank you.

Only birch can edit it... So excuse me for assuming that he would actually know what's what.

And I know the labour seats are wrong... But the rest is correct.

Would appear Cameron is already going back on his manifesto pledges by wanting to try to repeal the Hunting Act via a PMB when he said it was going to be a government bill.
Although, the pro hunt lot seem to think they have the 286 votes they need, although I wouldn't be surprised if the SNP start meddling in the business of the English, at least here, because they could make this fail and give Sturgeon another ego boost.

It's outrageous and I'm going to be pissed if it doesn't go ahead with the full backing of the party!

It'll fail. It's a free vote and plenty of non-shire Tories will probably abstain.

I also don't get a mention as Labour's Chair.

The SNP have already said that they'll start voting on English affairs. In any case, the proposed EVEL process is a veto prior to the bill hitting the Commons floor and not a restriction on non-English MPs voting, which would potentially be damaging to Parliament.

While it's expected to go through as a PMB, high on the list too if possible to give it more time for debate, it will still have party backing

As I said, according to the article the pro camp reckon they might have enough, although that's not counting on the SNP coming along and going "no, we don't want you to be able to do as you wish"

I have no idea what they were thinking with this EVEL proposal because it does absolutely no good what so ever

I guess you failed to pat attention to the "and I dropped them" bit, I knew I didn't like French enough to put the effort in, so I dropped it when I could, for instance, I didn't keep doing it and then moan about how "hard" it is. I don't like calculus much, nor stats, they're two of my weakest fields. Did I pick a load of modules for this year that are heavily stats and calculus? No, No stats at all and focus on algebra based/related modules, and mechanics modules because the calculus there isn't too bad.

The rest isn't. For one thing it says 'Government of the Republic' and we are now the 'Government of the United Kingdom'. Also the Tory Chair (bun) and the UKIP Chair (Well) is mentioned but the Labour one (Fez) isn't and it says the gov has 27 MPs when we have 20. A considerable difference.

I'm a tad late to the party but 'tis true that I'm stepping down as an Officer of the Socialists.

Most of you knew already, but it's essentially for the same reasons as Nixon. I'll still poke my head in the chat thread every now and then because nobody ever truly retires from this place; I just don't want the responsibility of being an MP/keeping up with the admin of the party.

That being said we are considering making Nixon and myself "Officers for Life" in true commie style

Oh yeah and mate you made out that you were good at everything. I am not moaning about M1 because getting 58% in it for the first time in weeks isn't that bad, I just hate myself when I don't get something that I feel I should so yeah..

I hadn't noticed those... But I did see that you and the socialists have swapped colours.

With the increasingly centrist Labour Party teaming up with the explicitly centrist Liberals, The Socialists intent to be the true and radical mouthpiece for the oppressed and ignored electorate in the next parliament. A number of bills to reclaim power and wealth from the elites are already in discussion.

Coalition or no coalition we'll be producing radical legislation to uphold our already radical manifesto as the largest party in the House.

Msg me if you want to abolish the Monarchy or get rid of the nukes again.
