    Whatever, I think we are getting a bit too defused, from the true meaning of the thread. All is forgiven, apart from Thatcher that goes without saying.

    Yeah, myself and Matthew appoint MP's together after an election, we decide together on which members have been the most active and commited and who wants to be an MP. It ensures an active Tory party and it is a system that acts really well.

    Very democratic stance from the Tories there; allowing anyone to apply for the role of MP. :rolleyes:

    To be fair, I think anyone can aply, but it comes down to matt and dave to chose from those who wish to be MP's. I have a similar method with the lib dems. I ask who would like the MP role avalible, if there are many people who want it or if I find it a difficult choice I would ask the party to decide, or at least help me decide, but else I would pick.

    We elect our MPs on a fully democratic basis. We believe MPs are the mouth of the party, not it's mind or the 'leaders' cronies.

    I wouldn't place my 'cronies' in a place of MP. I would place those who are active. I wouldn't really go off there policies at all unless they conflicted largely with the rest of the party.

    And? If you thought popular opinion was worth that much you'd let your members choose their MPs :yep:

    In the Tory party we treat MP appointments like mini job interviews, you put in an application and then me and matthew talk about who are the best candidates. We select the best candidates, considering a list system operates in Germany it is not a terrible system.

    Popular opinion is different from letting members vote. Popular = electorate.

    Well, no, Germany is half-list, half-constituency-based (and actually does suffer from the problem of party stooges in the Bundes- and Landstags) . Italy, of course, is a shining example of a corruption-free system (:rolleyes:) and is run the way the TSR Tory Party is.

    Nazism started in Germany so surely that can't be a terrible thing...I suggest the Tory party start culling people who don't have long white scruffy hair.

    That rules out...
