    Well, first you ask the question "am I a member of the bourgeoisie?" And then "I am a reactionary?"

    If the answer to both is "yes" then you are, if not you go back and think harder about the questions until you come to the correct conclusion.

    How does one tell if one is a 'bourgeoisie reactionary'? XD
    I wouldn't necessarily believe that the middle class are the bourgeoisie. I'd say if you're on the upper-middle border or above then you're bourgeois. In modern terms.

    Speaking in a personal capacity, I am against the extension of them, and would go further and remove them all but am not unhappy with the status quo if the only option was to increase the number of them

    The evidence is that they increase the performance of the children at them (who are overwhelmingly from wealthy households, and so they are terrible as a social mobility measure), but decrease the performance of the area as a whole. Accordingly, I'm opposed. If they worked as they were supposed to (permitting children from poorer backgrounds to gain access to good education without causing detriment to the educational system as a whole), I would support them.

    If the ghost MP KomradeKorbyn cannot manage to vote, nor spell looking at his name, I think it is a good idea to permanently make Emily Porter an MP.

    He's currently very busy with real life commitments which is fair enough, so we've brought in Emily to vote on the remaining items in Division.

    And once again people seem to think voting is a massive hardship that takes hours a day, not a few minutes twice a week.

    Jesus Jammy, take a chill pill. People have things more important than this place in their lives, you're not making yourself look any more superior just because you don't, you're making yourself look about on par with Nige.

    Members need to dedicate time if the MHoC is going to be a great debating forum replication the real life House of Commons. I may have cancelled a date with a beautiful girl to be online when the TSR General Election results were announced, however, that is the price I pay for being on top; other members should do the same thing.

    That would make sense, but you're not on top, you've never been top, you've never been anywhere near the top actually. Even the other guy that seems to dedicate 120% of his life to this place hasn't been at the top, he didn't even make leader of his party.

    Is it safe to assume, then, that the TSR Conservative and Unionist Party has never appointed a proxy?
