    I have just stated that I am happy for someone else to do it, I just have no intention of doing it myself and don't mind if nobody else wants to.
    I wasn't referring to you personally, rather your government or Chancellor.

    That's their choice. I can understand why people wouldn't want to do it. I don't remember the last Conservative government producing one...?

    Apologies if this/a similar question has already been asked;

    What is your opinion on Ed Milliband and how do you think he will help Labour to move forward as a party?
    And, are there any Labour ideals that you disagree with, and if so, why?
    Remember firstly that TSR Labour do not really represent the real life Labour party. While most TSR Labour members are members or supporters of the real life Labour party, we are separate.

    Personally I was happy Ed became leader, mostly because it showed a desire within the party to move slightly more left. I have however so far been underwelmed by Eds leadership. That was probably inevitable though as I wish Labour would move much further left. I disagree with Labour a lot right now, especially on it's economic policies which often follow more right wing thinking. I view these cuts as unnecessary, not just 'too far too fast'. Nobody is likely to fully support the ideas of any one party though, and I feel that Labour are certainly the best of the big three parties.

    You mean a desire of the unions for the party to move to the left

    "Unions" is a neuter plural pronoun, how could you use a singular masculine pronoun to refer to "unions"? It doesn't make any sense

    My use of "he" refers to Dayne.

    Regardless of whether or not people did or didn't want them to do a Budget, the simple fact is the last TSR government didn't produce a budget when it was perfectly entitled to do so. Therefore none of the members of that government can start moaning that we might not do one either.

    Practice what you preach, it's quite simple.

    Sorry I did know this, I just didn't make it clear that I was asking for your opinions as TSR Labour supporters!

    Thanks for the answers, glad to see it's not just me that is underwhelmed!!

    In all fairness - seeing the situation we were in is much easier post-reset than pre-reset.
