    Congratulations on seriously misquoting me.
    I quoted you word for word, my response just seeking clarification that you do want to drive desperate people to loan sharks as that's what your post (which, I'll reiterate I quoted word for word) seems to imply a desire to do.

    So I'll ask you again, do you want to drive desperate people to loan sharks?

    He didn't misquote you at all. I came out with a hypothetical scenario where I wanted to take out a short-term loan to tide me over until I got paid. Your response was:

    (Original post by Birchington)
    If you wanted to take out an individual loan with a loan shark, that's entirely your right to do so. Pay day loan companies however should not be allowed to exploit people with excessive APR and tight terms of repayment.
    This can only be taken as you suggesting I go to a loan shark, because you want to stop payday loan companies from operating.

    So, I ask you again what TMD has just asked: do you think that people who are desperate for a short term loan should go to loan sharks?

    I've written a guide in the Green party sub forum, want me to send it to you? You basically write a few lines about an issue that interests you and then call upon the Government to do something(s) about it.

    Can't you make that available to everybody in the MHoC in a sticky?

    Would you consider yourself "liberal" on social issues?

    Would you consider yourself "liberal" on economic issues?

    I consider myself both socially and economically liberal, maximising both individual freedom through expanding civil liberties and ensuring an end to poverty.

    As a party we're strongly committed to centrism and maximising both economic and social liberalism, although individual members may be further right or left than myself.

    The NUS is an irrelevance. It serves no one except New Labour careerists and far-left militants
    If only that last bit was actually true!

    My experience of the NUS has unfortunately involved militants who care more about throwing a strop at national conference than properly representing the views of the students that elected them. The whole organisation is a joke.

    There's a few who try to make themselves heard, but the union is very much in Nu Labour hands unfortunately. I'll always remember 2010, when Aaron Porter organised a candlelit vigil along the Thames whilst tens of thousands of students were busy actually protesting and making some noise Pretty much anything radical every from the student movement has been condemned by the NUS.

    I have no time for the NUS, but what annoyed me more was my uni deliberately not advertising or discussing the NUS in or out vote; they just stick it on the end of the Uni Students' Union elections along with the BUCS in or out vote.

    Students should be given the information to make a proper choice. I've voted to leave for all four years of University but it's always been defeated by about 5000 to 400

    About 4 months, we renamed in March.
    Ruddy long time, though when I think about it, I am starting to remember. Anyway, congratulations on freeing yourselves from the Prick Egg burden. Nice graphics as well. It will be interesting to see whether you will gain in the next general election.

    Is Morgan still around?

    To answer your question - no, I stood down as SG primarily to focus my efforts on the HOC, and I intend to lead my party for the foreseeable future.
