    Sssshhh! To be fair, taking whether the Finance Bill passed or not, the actual budget and effort that went into it was commendable. And it's not our fault the majority of the House just don't know what sensible stuff should pass!!

    We agree that the Government wasn't the most active, however, a lot of Government output was from the Tories, rather than Liberals, and we have lots of plans for this term, under our new Leadership, myself committing to a minimum output per month for the Party, which I fully intend to uphold. I don't think we should be judged based on one slightly lower output term.
    I'm going to give you a huge compliment here and say that even with regards to activity your government could have been a lot worse. Previous and future TSR Labour governments were and will be better of course. But still, you needn't be ashamed. I do think that you were probably dragged down by the Liberals who probably used up their energy in all the previous governments they were in.

    To quote the great cBay:
    "oi our manifesto is great
    we pretend to be moderate for the first 2 sections, then boom last section we want to nationalise everything"

    Awww I do agree though - there will always be ups and downs... Let this be a message to the voters to not vote for Liberals as they're too tired, and to come and vote for the Conservatives!

    UKIP ftw!!! The only party which is brave enough to tackle problems which other parties are too politically correct to talk about. All of the other parties might aswell be one as they are all so similar. UKIP is different and different is good.
    Different is goid basically goes against what ukip stands for

    You appear to misunderstand. #McGovernment isn't illustrating socialism, but satirising common misunderstandings about socialism.

    You can criticise the lack of energy the Liberals had this term, in previous terms, and blame the Liberals for dragging down the Conservative-Liberal coalition this term, however, you would still be happy to have your party dragged down by the Liberals in a new coalition.

    Who says there's no common ground between our parties? In the spirit of bipartisanship I'd like to share that message (though I'll be urging voters to vote Labour).

    It sounds good but just like a mcdonalds you will ultimately end up unsatisfied and disappointed, the perfect slogan for the party to use.

    The effort TF put into the budget was amazing, and he should be commended, but you can't really talk up something that you didn't actually end up achieving:/

    That means nothing. You had a lot of plans last GE - you had a secret stash of bills ready to be submitted, remember? - and you didn't follow through. If you were under a completely new leadership team, I'd agree that you shouldn't be judged so much on last term's inactivity, but you're not - you've been in the Tory leadership for ages now and haven't managed to pull activity up.

    Fairs We might as well have been though, given our legislative output this term

    In fairness, they are a centre-right party but with a lack of ideas so for right leaning centrists it's probably a toss up between the two of you. For left leaning centrists, Labour is probably the better option.

    Gulag is an essential part of human nature and you can't go against that.

    Not true at all. We are the only truly centrist party, happy to work with anyone to further liberalism and sensible, centre-ground economics.

    I disagree !

    I think there is a massive difference between Leader and Deputy Leader, and we also have a new Deputy coming soon, who I am sure will bring fresh ideas. And looking at other terms, when I've been DL, our output has been good.

    By definition of what economics is, one individual in society holding 100% of the wealth is sensible, rational, and acceptable.
