    The world must look awfully funny through your eyes if you think that we're not opposing you. :laugh:
    Are you disbanding your shadow cabinet, because the opposition does not come from those with the briefs often, they certainly don't come in a timely manner. Writing a hundred words doesn't take two days, it takes two minutes, and that's when ever s hundred words are managed.

    Pot calls kettle black. :rolleyes: Would you rather only the Shadow Minister commented on the relevant item? (though it's not like you've produced an item for each brief for that to even make sense)

    Why should Dan rush to write essays when this (short) statement is so easily torn apart?

    I would rather shadow ministers actually make substantial responses rather than often not even posting. If you want an example feel free to look at last term where your defence SoI was withdrawn after mere hours.

    EDIT: Sorry, might have been the term before, poor costing and over taxation turns into one big blur.

    I do hope you level those criticisms with the same fervour with your own front-bench.

    My Defence SOI???

    Are you denying ever being in government?

    I don't recall the SOI you are referencing. I remember a Defence SOI being withdrawn very quickly but that was when I was Leader of the Opposition and a result of pressure I was putting on the government of the day.

    It was either in December or last summer because I was in the pub when it was put up, did the research for the SoS for them and composed a thorough response by about 1, THB then evaded for a bit and it was formally withdrawn the following evening.

    Must have been Christmas because I then slated the government again in the budget for not taking anything on board
