    tbh I was just making a joke in reply to the Labour parties promise of cookies, the logistics of whether or not tea produced in a Marxist society could be considered theft is a fairly academic debate as we do not yet live in said society, when we do or are close to it, then I will gladly join either of you on the peoples commitee of tea production and provision

    Most people in this House from almost any party will support individual freedoms like freedom of speech.

    For sigs: check that 'show sigs' is checked on this page (under Thread Display Options) and slightly lower down you can change the option headed 'Additional Signature Options' to make sigs fold up so you have to click to see them.
    I did all of this

    A persons sig will only show under their first post on a page though.
    ... nothing -

    beware the anger management problems!

    EDIT: I got it!

    We create serious legislation that we expect to pass, such that we can improve conditions for people. They create legislation with no costing that they don't want to pass to make some sort of statement. They tend to work in extremes as well, whereas we consider some progress to be better than no progress.

    They smell. We are gods.

    This doesn't really make any sense as a point. "Authoritarian extremists" are capable of aiding progress as well, and the vast majority of us are not that (if we accept that one or two are, which I don't).

    I'm happy to accept you but you are not allowed to be in two parties at the same time. I would contact Stricof (post in their thread) and ask that they decline you. When they have I'm happy to accept you - just let me know

    Actually, assuming both you and Stricof agree, then it is allowed.

    Awesome. I just checked and I've received your request.

    Hopefully you have some ideas for bills and such. People will be done with exams soon as well so the house in general should pick up

    You don't have to do anything.

    You have the option of posting your ideas for bills, debating them, and doing the same in the house (and in the government subforum which you will also have access to). You have the ability to become an MP where you will be able to vote on bills, and submit your own if you wish, to be a member of the shadow cabinet if we are in opposition or a member of the cabinet when we're in government. Such positions mean you are expected to produce legislation in that area but you are not restricted by this at all. You can also run for the leadership or deputy leadership when the time comes and then you get to bully everyone else (I joke).
