I just think it's really funny that the Tories approached us for a coalition.
and this surprises you?

All of which made you one of those 'politicians', who far from concentrating on hard facts and real debate, likes to be be different, interesting and outrrrrrrrageous. And thus the TSR socialists were born.

Sorry, I embelished the story a little.
Who needs hard facts: this is TSR.

Evening Mr Grover!
I would also like to join with Dan to welcome you back, despite your recent argument with the Tory leader, you have been missed.

Well, yes. Was it a serious suggestion? Did you honestly think that a coalition between the furthest right party on TSR and the furthest left party on TSR would come to something?

Argument? That's not an argument ... that's a discussion between UoL and myself on his flawed attempt to negate the obvious and claim the Lib Dems are anything other than votes lost for the Tories.

Mobius Curve: what comes around, goes around. The furthest left & furthest right have so little in common that they can bully the rest into submission. Or, UoL wants to DW in the Prime Minster's chair. :p:

Whoever suggested it to you, answers your first question, if it wasnt from UoL then it doesnt really consitute a serious suggestion, it was more of an informal idea but it seems you are set against it.

I could see it as a coalition between the two most active parties in the house, a coalition of convenience. What better way would there be to punish the Lib Dems and Labour for their inactivity last session than to totally exclude them from government?

edit, oriel beat me to it.

i didnt ask who asked you (cos I already knew that :p: ), but explained that only UoL can make an official offer. If the Socialists dont want a formal offer than thats up to them.

I'm sorry daveireland, but excluding the Lib Dems and Labour from government... Are you actually alluding the house to a children's playground game and its associated squabbles. Well, come to think of it your attitude does come across as fairly childish.

I would urge you to take into account the fact that your coalition would be somewhat inconenient, given that you and the socialists might just have some incy, wincy ideological differences in perspective. Could get complicated really, couldn't it?

Ideological differences aside, The Socialists and the Conservatives united in forcing a lame duck government (who themselves, I think I'm right in saying, did not produce a single joint bill) to call a general election.

I think having a House of Commons that actually does something is preferable to one that does very little. Not only did the last government not want to play, but they actually kicked the ball over the fence.

Now, between us, we have control of the ball, I think it is quite right we exclude those who didn't want to play last time.

like ABC said, you guys didnt want to participate in the house last term and unless you pledge to remain active all term then I am dubious about whether you actually want to govern, or make bills. It may seem as though im turning this house into a playground game however I just want to see the house active thats all.

My attitude childish??, im playing politics, i'm aiming to get the best possible situation for the Conservative party and the house in general. Realpolitik isnt childish.

We don't have our own colour

Once again, I'd like to reiterate the government's do nothing. Coalitions are pointless - indeed, having a coalition government with command over a lot of MP's actually stifles the debate in here; the more people toeing party lines in here, the worse the house is IMO.
