Well it seems the powers that be have decided that is how the next election should go, so I guess that is inevitable
It was the right call.

The Tories are still here you know
Well, with the Libertarians dead, UKIP being banned, the Greens and Socialists being pretty unpalatable to you and Labour being Labour... I guess you better have a very generous offer on the table for us right about now!

How's a 12 year old single malt sound?

Well unless you either get a majority government or buddy up with the likes of Labour then you will not get into government.

Do you agree that what has happened today is ridiculous? I am a relatively new member to this house, but I can see with actions like this why this Model House of Commons is slowly dying

Either disgusting or outright paedophillic, I'm not quite certain...

Haha!

With regard to these recent actions - yes. We have a lot of fun in this sub-forum, and to take it as far as a personal, and full public attack is absolutely disgraceful. Up to me, the consequences on UKIP members would be more severe, as that is not what this house stands for. Over these past couple weeks, we have seen some disgusting things said and done here, but I hope that now they have both been sorted, and Birchington, Kitty, miser and the CT have shown that all actions here will come with consequences, that there will be less of this behaviour.

It was the right call.
In politics a certain amount of 'banter' occurs and I don't think that is necessarily a bad thing. Watch Prime Minister's Questions if you don't believe me.

But banning a political party from participating is neither democratic nor the right call, especially considering the motion in question didn't have any harmful intentions and that only 3 members of TSR UKIP were actively involved in it.

You give the whiskey to me. I'll buy you a glass of whatever you want. Up to the value of £2.50.

There is 'banter' and then there are personal attacks, this was the latter.

and it was submitted under UKIPS name and seems to have been decided on skype so the speaker can't know who did it, the ban it justified and in my mind you got of lightly.

Haha, you trying to get a cheap whiskey.

I appreciate anyone who likes a good whiskey, so all you need to do is ask...

With all the drama we're handing you to deal with I think I'd be on straight ethanol by now in your position
I'm being kept busy at the moment - I like to hope things are running as smoothly as possible

NO! The actions of this house call for stronger stuff - you can have a coke!

Oh okay, I'll have a coke then. No ice, though. If I am going for the strong stuff, it shouldn't get all watery...
