I can assure all members of the House that I have not negged anyone in the past few days.

I am around, I just have a lot of work right now so I don't have much time to post.

As per usual, the only response from them so far has been negging.
Maybe it is just me but I never been negged by any of them (apart from a former member who probably doesn't count).

Oh Australia, why... ? It's incredible that the Labor Party can reside over unprecedented growth during a worldwide financial crisis and still be booted out in an election largely dominated by economic issues.

Also: how did the Liberals manage to get a leader with such repugnant views?

When I was in Australia two months ago, the locals tended to say they wouldn't vote Labor because they'd had enough of the in-fighting in the leadership, and they detested Kevin Rudd. So I think, largely it might have been a personal debate that kept Labor out, rather than the Liberal-National Coalition winning office.

At the end of the day it was their own, they weren't united, and like here, voters do not like that. I think Abbott's economic policies (and on immigration) are sound.

edit: didn't see the above.

What's your two cents on your Coalition partners? You strike me as one of the left-leaning Liberals from your past comments.

I hope so. If Labor can present a unified image then maybe they'll stand a better chance in 2016. It's interesting that although Labor's vote largely decreased, only half of it seemed to go to the Coalition - so you might be right. Glad the Greens kept their seat, incidentally.

As a lefty I of course probably won't support his economic policies, though they at least seem legitimate. However, doesn't his immigration policies consist largely of towing boats to Indonesia? How can that possibly be a viable strategy? His opposition to gay marriage and climate change rounds it all up.

It wasn't my personal choice, but I hope we shall have a prosperous and otherwise good term this time round. It's my first time in government since I joined the MHoC in February 2012, so it should be good fun.

How come they made you? It makes no odds to unis whether you take 3 or 4, even Oxford and Cambridge. Do you want to take 4?

Good luck anyway, I'm off to uni on Saturday, very scared but looking forward to a new experience.

Is that a reference to dodgy types or right-wing Tory maniacs? ;p

Both :lol: Ironically I got approached by a bunch of so called communists when I joined, I later found out the leader was head of the student SWP here. She wasn't communist at all, rather a champagne socialist. She goes to Marxism every year but she wears the very evil she preaches against- expensive clothes etc.

Anyhow rant over, I mean pretend to be a party animal and you'll hang around with true party animals and probably not enjoy it.

I actually see the youth group of the SWP have re-branded after the whole rape crisis - they've gone from SWSS (Socialist Worker Student Society) to RevSoc (Revolutionary Socialist Society), getting rid of the SWP reference in the name despite still being affiliated to them. Crafty buggers.

It's a mad experience to begin with, but I'm beginning to get settled now after a few days. There's a dizzyingly large amount of exciting stuff to get involved with! Particularly if you're interested in politics/activism - I attended an Amnesty International letter-writing session earlier, for instance. (It's like this at Edinburgh anyway, but I'd assume all universities are like this). Good luck!
