    Yes, but these pesky liberals and tories, not to mention the Blairites in the Labour party keep trying to stop me from redefining 'property'.
    NEVER!!

    Okay fine, but only if we can categorise the Socialist Party as a terrorist organisation....

    Damn, so you mean to say the plan to take all the righties in as state property and use them as slaves STILL hasn't come off?

    It was so long ago. March or April last year right? A lot less drama in the party now

    I'm fairly pragmatic when it comes to economics, which is probably why. And even then, I'm still ridiculously socially liberal.

    Around then I'd say - it's you who can actually see the subforum to check And yeah, very true. That is after all what keeps the Liberals together.

    I must ask, who accepted you into the Liberals without running a bloody dupe check?!

    Don't you know, we've adopted Orange too now. I must say, Orange goes quite well with both blue and red...

    To be fair dupe checks weren't frequent when I joined. They only became common after the Birk scandal and a few others.

    I've just had a look at them. It looks like Birk's account has been banned.

    So it's May v Leadsom then, which hopefully means it will be May.

    Looks like Gove was right, he isn't cut out to be Prime Minister.

    If Labour get their **** together, May and Leadsome are both eminently defeatable.

    And there you have it, the allegedly progressive Labour (and Lib Dems) once again being put to shame, being on track to have the second female Prime Minister as well as the first before any other major national party even elects a female as their leader. How long until we take first openly LGBTQ++-*wsegsdfdhf too? And that's without any quotas, short lists, or any other form of sexism, purely on merit.

    I think the PLP realise now that they don't hold all the cards and they're going to have to compromise. If they agree to let a leftie onto the ballot in return for Corbyn resigning I believe we can get away from the impasse.

    I was going to vote for Gove but I am now undecided on both candidates, however, I am leaning towards voting for Leadsom because I want a Prime Minister who believes in Brexit opinions enough to put their country first, not put their career prospects first by trying to be neutral while committing to David Cameron.

    Hear, hear. Will certainly be following things more closely than if it were any other pairing because it's the only pairing I didn't have a strong opinion on beforehand.

    Interesting, isn't it that the Conservatives will be bringing us our second female Prime Minister and will have a vote now between two female contenders - unprecedented as far as I'm aware. What this shows us is that the nonsense spouted by feminists such as Harriet Harman about all-female shortlists is just that nonsense. The Conservatives have proven today that it doesn't matter what gender you are - if you work hard, you will succeed. Perhaps Labour should now take note and realise that having all female shortlists doesn't solve anything.

    It must be a tough choice because they're all bad. But if I were you, I'd vote for Leadsom simply because of Gove's antincs in recent weeks.

    All-women shortlists have been sucessful in bringing women into Parliament, and are therefore a success if you are of the point of view that in a representative democracy, the main legislative chamber needs to be roughly representative of national demographics to ensure people's voices are heard - in other words, that it is different to other jobs because there IS an inherant advantage to having more females MPs. It's an issue I'm torn on, but the logic follows because Labour have been far more sucessful in getting women into Parliament.

    As for the Prime Minister though, given the importance of the role and the weight of responsibility on one set of shoulders I'm far more concerned by the fact that the next PM is going to be horrible for the nation and frankly having a vagina does not do anything to change my opinions of them. May is worrying authoritarian, especially as she is out of touch with reality in terms of how far the state can realistically go in the 21st century, and cannot be relied on to stand up for those who need it the most. Leadsom is a liar, a fraud, horribly vague on what she wants to actually do as PM and illustrates some incredibly backwards thinking on her blog. When whoever wins is trying to scrap my rights or destroying the economy and my chances of employment, their gender is the last thing I care about.
