    Shame.

    How will you help Their Royal Highness The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to shake off their reputation of being lazy royals in the near future?
    in so far as those attitudes exist, they are politically inelastic (the royals for instance do a lot of charity work and such, everyone knows this, republicans still hate them) and also is not a political opinion that has many consequences, positive or negative, so I don't think this government will spend time trying to deal with that.

    The papers said Their Royal Highnesses spent the least amount of days doing royal duties among all the main royals, including Her Majesty The Queen.

    Ah, my wording should be more delicate. What I mean to say is that, human rights can only be universal up to a certain point. I believe that criminals who have committed grave crimes should not be deserving of certain rights which in turn improve their lives at the expense of those whom they have harmed. Again, this is a very brief idea and it is unlikely to be something that I consider introducing until Winter.
    Rights are either universal or they aren't, there is no in between. You've already been told that nobody in your own party will support this. Give it up, or defect to UKIP.

    Unlike those who didn't mind a pacifist against state borders having Defence, I am considering Secretaries of State upon merit, not some theoretical parliamentary experience which has nothing to do with their policies and skills to deliver them.
    I thank the Prime Minister for his answer.

    Of course, of course

    Also Airmed I know the coalition circumstances are now different but I hope you continue the good work the last coalition started on mental health.
    Or course. The whole house knows I hold mental health close in my heart. It will continue. :yep:

    Are you trying to suggest republicans shouldn't "hate" the monarchy just because the royals do charity work? As for charity actually, our former PM had a few things to say on charity

    I am glad to see this will be the case, and I must say I was relieved it was you out of all the liberals, conservatives and the nat lib to take on health.

    PRSOM, thank you! You have to thank Petros for persuading me to taking on Health. It's a scary department, but I'm sure I will do my best with it.

    That quote is hilarious, I mean it's not like they're the highest rate taxpayers in the country or anything, with those exempt from paying income tax on the modest sums they are exempt from paying it anyway or anything.

    In fairness, voting records have long shown you to be an anomaly in your party. But hey, it's your choice as to which party you ally yourself with.

    The Liberal party is full of anomalies; we are a party that pretends to be centrist whilst giving sanctuary to socialists and ultra-conservatives. I would argue my voting record is more in tune with real Liberal values.

    We don't pretend. We are centrist.

    Even I don't go as far as to say that the party I am part of is defined by my ideology and mine alone, ego much. If you have a problem with being in the government you can always leave it.

    If you want to criticise the party, that's perfectly fine. I'd appreciate if you came to me internally - possibly in the chat thread - and we could talk it over.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "real Liberal Values" as you've always incorrectly defined being Liberal as being Left-Wing.
