Heck you may well make the Greens economically right to my Labour Party.
When I joined the House they were.

No, I think you'd do a bit better than her haha

But aren't you worried that if you made the Greens that 'moderate' (i.e moderate enough to have a 40p top rate of tax when the currently want 60p) you're making them into Labour or the Liberals? Heck you may well make the Greens economically right to my Labour Party.
Well not really, because the focus is still environmental sustainability, if anything what makes the Greens "green" has actually been lost under Nat Ben's regime.

Actually you're right, they were. Which is a bit odd considering the RL situation.

It just doesn't seem like a big enough pull. Environmentalism is one of the tenants of our party constitution.

To think a year ago they were seen a the pragmatic left-wing party here, keeping Labour and the Socialists in check. What happened?

Sorry, I don't mean to be classist here, it's just the fact that Jammy Duel mentioned Polo earlier, the only polos I know are the mints, and I don't wanna be spending £5 a pint in some pub in London with some people I don't really know, talking about things in which I don't have a clue about. If there's 10 people or more going though, then I'd be more than happy to go.
What's wrong with polo?! It's a wonderfully fun sport, even if rather expensive. And now I'm dying from the waist down, in the last hour my calves have started killing me along with my feet, knees and hips.

Not really, we (and I use that in a strange way as I was a Socialist MP back then) led that Government.

Isn't that the one where you have to wear special speedos so people don't grab your balls?

Yeah, I was joking

It was the term as a junior partner after like 7 consecutive election victories.

Thank you, got an exam tomorrow so something that would send me off to sleep would perfect.

Unless I'm missing something we're thinking of completely different sports. Sounds like you're thinking of the sissy "water polo"

As an aside. ****ing hell, last year Greece's p/e ratio was only 3.4

It's nothing like golf! It's actually quite a brutal game. This year there was only a jaw dislocation and not many falls, bit apparently normally there are quite a lot of fax falls and quite a few injuries.

I guess that's due to the crash of the stock market.

What's this?
P/e ratio. Share price divided by dividend. Not the best indicator, cape is much better which takes a 10 year average to try to account for the cyclical nature of our economic system.

Price to Earnings ratio of the Greek stock market.

Don't you work near the City in a start-up or something? (albeit in a non-finance role) Surely you'd have heard the lingo around there

Going to be doing a lot with the riding club next year, really need to work on my flat work for the damn boring two handed riding ready for hunting. And the extra confidence cantering and galloping will help at nationals next year. Only stated cantering Friday, spent most of the weekend while riding cantering

First couple of chukkas were just trying not to fall of :3

Having played competitively I note get what my ex meant about how polo players are horrible for blurring riding. How do we get the horse to go faster? Smash it with our feet and smash it off the shoulder with a whip.
