    For those who've been asking: I've officially re-joined TSR Labour
    Well, Ray just dropped in my estimations somewhat, expected him to at the very least run a dupe check or more likely outright say go away

    Don't suppose the tories are offering £3 (well knowing them £30) votes?

    Also to my disliking Galloway is putting in a good performance on question time considering it is Galloway

    I honestly don't believe she is - if anything, she strikes me as more pro-EU than she lets on. My belief, perhaps misguided, is that most core Tory voters are in favour of leaving and hugely against free movement, but May and most senior Tory MPs will likely recognise that EFTA membership is necessary to protect our economy and attempt to sign up up and accept free movement (or a near-meaningless 'compromise') as such. This could lead to some of them turning on her administration feeling betrayed and give us a 2010-style situation were the third party, UKIP, picks up a lot of votes, except the fourth party would be bigger. I could see something like:

    Labour 30%
    Conservatives 29%
    UKIP 19%
    Lib Dems 10%
    SNP 5%
    Green 3%

    How that would translate to seats, whether on current (with an early election or a failure of the changes in Parliament) or new boundaries is anyone's guess.
    It would probably still lead to the Tories being the largest party, probably much more than the 29% you give and Labour would be much lower, maybe even behind UKIP

    I applied to the party a while ago so that a decision could be made by the time I was able to return - they haven't just made an on-the-spot decision. There was a discussion within the party, as well as circumstances at play I don't intend to divulge publicly. That being said, I do apologise to the wider MHoC community for what I did, and assure you it won't be repeated.

    Regarding dupe checking, there was an accusation made that I used a dupe to access the MHoC during my ban, but the CT have to use their own phrasing decided not to pursue it further - given the circumstances I can only take this to mean it was made by someone who didn't want me back and has no evidence whatsoever to support it, but in any case checks have already been run.

    Does not change the fact that Ray has fallen in my estimations for failing to make an executive decision

    Or for making an executive decision you don't like. Oh well, doesn't matter much - not as though he's standing for Tory leader thankfully!

    Well Ray did make an executive decision, which was to consult the membership of the party, and get their views, as obviously and I think saoirse will understand me saying this emotions were running high at the time, and did run high for a while afterwards. You may disagree with Ray's decision, but he did make one, and it is exactly the same one I would have made were I in his position.

    I wonder how the members of the US Congress who opposed the gun controls proposed by their President feel about the deaths of four policemen in Dallas?

    It was mulled over briefly before the SoI

    I can also announce that a further statement can be expected in the next week or two
