I think after all the fun and games last night I need a lunchtime drink, bartender?

Quite a nice day actually, what pints are on offer, nothing too strong I'm afraid in case it all (inevitably) kicks off again later?

From London Fields Brewery, we have 'Love Not War' - not too strong, but is a nice pint!

I wasn't able to get online yesterday for long enough to answer many of the PMQs, so if the Speaker doesn't mind I'll answer the rest of them here:

So if the Green Party were to be in government after this next election we should all look out for, possibly, a Bill of Rights? (May I also say that I too sympathise with the King in the North but I'm a Tully through and through. )
(Original post by James Milibanter)
Does the Prime Minister plan on introducing a fully codified constitution or just a bill of rights? (House Martell all the way!)
It's definitely an idea I would support. We looked into how the idea could be advanced this term but unfortunately it never came to fruition; if this government were to be re-elected I would certainly look into introducing a constitution.

Thank you Mr Speaker.

I wonder if His Excellency is a rebel heart?
His Excellency couldn't comment.

(Original post by tehFrance)
Do you support 'Gatwick: Obviously' or 'Heathrow: Taking Britain Further'?
I'm not sure I support either.

(Original post by RayApparently)
Thank you Mr Prime Minister. For my follow up question: which previous TSR Prime Minister do you look up to?
Looking back into the history books, I find it very impressive how Acaila was able to lead a MRLP government for two successive terms (2006-07); I don't believe anyone else has done that even with the more conventional parties.

(Original post by PetrosAC)
Mr Prime Minister,

Firstly, how are you finding your first PMQ's?

Do you believe you will still be Prime Minister come the end of May?
They're great! It's very important that the Prime Minister remains accountable at all time.

I live in hope... As I said to a question the other day, the Green Party remains very popular among young people and students. I'm not sure we'll see a repeat of the last election but things could certainly be interesting.

(Original post by nebelon)
Does the PM consider himself a Communist, Socialist or Soc Dem?
At the risk of sounding more centrist than I actually am: Social Democrat. I like democratic institutions too much to sacrifice them for any other model. But I don't think this label is incompatible with the aims of many on the left who wouldn't identify as Social Democrats.

(Original post by JoeL1994)
Does the PM believe the Monarchy are a group of unelected sponges or a valuable asset to the country who provide guidance, stability and economic bonuses to the nation.
Unelected sponges

Having just checked the party sub-forum and my resignation speech (nostalgic) it seems that i was PM full for the 15th (PM), 16th (LO) and 17th (PM) parliaments but only leader of the opposition from Feb in the 14th and leader until October 8th in the 18th (though i was PM for a month in the 18th) before i took up a treasury position and worked on the last budget with Birch. Qwertish's first bill release as PM was the Aviation Tax Act.

Interestingly i do have the shadow cabinet for the 16th, cabinet for the 18th and my resignation speech if anybody wants to see.

I think you might be in the running for longest PM overall, but those weren't successive terms I believe?

Resignation..

Resignation of Party Leader
Dear Conservative Party..

Having led the party now for 19 months and having gotten us into government in 3 of the 4 elections i have fought i hereby announce my resignation as party leader. I intend to begin the election for a new leader over the weekend with the new leader taking over by Monday 7th (assuming the election goes to schedule of course).

I took leadership of a party close to collapse and within three months had returned us to government, this government went on to dominate and was the most active on record, since then we have maintained a good level of activity and have returned to government 2 more times, so i leave office pleased with my tenure and only hope that the party history regards me in a similar way. Since coming to power as leader of the party i always planned to step down in summer 2013 so I've actually stayed on a little longer than i originally thought but i decided that now is a suitable time. We are fresh from the election, there are good levels of activity and contributions from party members and so i have confidence that a smooth transition can occur.

I intend to remain as an MP and will always give the party first refusal on any legislation i create. I would also be happy to assist to assist the new leadership in any way they want (i rather like the Chief Whip position personally).

I thank all parties members for their contributions during my tenure (and for giving me an easy time of it.. haha).

Yours Faithfully..

Rakas

PS

I must also add that the following members deserve recognition for being nothing but brilliant and aiding me in making the party what it is..

Jarred - Served as my Deputy without absolute distinction

Qwertish - Also served as my Deputy with distinction

Bun - While brief it was an honor to have him serve as my Deputy, in the first week of him being my Deputy we began to plot the VoNC in the failing Labour government and without him we would probably have not gained such an alliance with Ukip, this alliance has largely kept us in government so often.

Moleman - Brilliant Guy, extremely dependable

tehFrance - While he probably can't see this being banned from the Mhoc and all, there was nobody more hilarious and blunt than him.

Misterxninja and Rhadamanthus - Gave me a great insight into our frenemies, the Libertarians and Liberals.

Lipvig, Meenu and Ham and Cheese - All brilliant MP's.

So glad I didn't run for Speaker. On the off chance that I'd won I would have had to deal with all this crap.

Haha, I don't know, could be quite fun - as long as you don't care what people think, then it'd be cool

The VoNC that some UKIP members have said they're going to put through for Birch will never go through anyway...

Yeah, and even if it does it'll fail horribly.
