    Sorry, must have got a bit confused. I just guessed that since you said:



    you may not have realised how clause four begins. My bad.
    I've added in a word to my original response to clarify my meaning.

    OK, next question: Given Labour's (both TSR and IRL) style of parliament-dominated, reformist politics has got the British Left not a jot closer to acheiving some kind of socialism, don't you think we should try something different?

    It dosent count, the prime minister usually has a question time. There needs to be a seperate tory thread to count it as one. That one is just for you so its not really every inclusive, one person saying and telling everyone what the party is all about. Its a bit dicatorial in my opinion.

    If you noticed, you would see that im not the only Tory in that thread. Its not really 'just for me', its for any cabinet minister as post #1 in that clearly thread states. Also considering that the PMQ thread is only occasionally active what is the point of cluttering up the forum with a redundant 'Ask a Tory' thread?

    I'm gutted that Royal Mail is in such a bad way. It is worrying the government is having to consider selling off part of the company, a move I'm not keen on. I don't think it is as necessary as Lord Mandelson makes out and I would oppose such a move.

    I'm in favour. I believe that nuclear weapons are an important feature of our defence strategy and so investment in Trident is essential.

    I read about this briefly, but to confirm, are you referring to plans to cut the speed limit of thousands of miles of road to 50 miles per hour?

    Yes, the wholesale reduction of the so called national speed limit to 50mph.

    Why are they essential? Firstly because we would never use them. The first nuclear bomb dropped on the unsuspecting civilians of Hiroshima in 1945 killed more than 100,000 people: Britain’s current Trident system has a destructive capacity 200 times greater. These are highly expensive weapons that any country would be condemed and likely attacked for using.

    They are illegal too: the Geneva Conventions prohibit the use of indiscriminate weapons likely to cause deaths to civilians and non-combatants, and the International Court of Justice charged with upholding the convention ruled in 1996 that nuclear weapons fall into this category and their use would therefore be unlawful.

    It will be renewed at a cost estimated to be some $76 billion over the next 30 years. That’s cash that could sort climate change, build a new school or hospital in almost every town in the UK – or employ 300,000 nurses or teachers.

    I don't think we're developing nuclear weapons with the aim of using them. Rather, we're trying to prevent MAD and for that purpose I think they are effective: Deterring attacks from other countries.
