    Or, as is somewhat more likely, the Nat Libs die?

    I can ofcourse admit that, relative to the others, the manifesto is...somewhat different.

    However, having read through their MHoC thread, I found myself in agreement with the majority of the views/policies stated by their more senior members.

    I considered the Liberals, but I was a bit concerned over how their 'broad church' approach could negatively affect their efficiency in decision making and actually passing motions and bills. Also there would be perhaps too wide a schism between many of my views and the views of some in their party.

    If by different you mean ****, then I understand perfectly what you mean. But it's good to see that you did your research and I respect your choice. I was just curious to see if anyone actually vote for them based on that manifesto they wrote.

    Yes, a minority view admittedly, but thanks I suppose.

    I'm not really up to date with who's who here, which party are you running for?

    I'm an independent that wanted to stand on a platform of one-nation conservatism, but seeing as I am not standing, I'm more than happy to be backing the Tories on this occasion.

    I was the chancellor before, I changed my mind on a lot of key issues, I made this account for a fresh start, it was declared not in the spirit of the rules and I wasn't allowed to stand.

    The problem wasn't the account. It was the chit chat you conducted with yourself.

    If by chit chat you mean literally a non-sentence.

    If I had used another account to back myself up in debate, or anything else then I'd understand. But I don't think the ruling given was a fair one, the only reason I accepted it so was because I respect your judgement and also because there were a couple members saying that I should have been banned altogether.

    I believe it was fair. Others feel it was too harsh or too lenient. This seems like an agreeable balance.

    Ridiclous.

    We cannot afford to be a 'lazy economy' *cough* Spain.
    Except Ireland does not have Sunday trading and they still have a higher output per worker than the UK.

    Go figure.
