    Whoops, sorry - That was an error on my part - that's what you get when you're dog tired!
    It's our fault, we need some kind of guide to explain where we are similar and not similar to our RL variants.

    Smart people really are dumb sometimes this ladies and gentlemen is why I prefer being as stupid as I am, if I do something as ridiculous as that then no one cares as it is expected... silly smart *******s, they set to high of a bar in the world of expectations :rofl:

    Vote tehFrance, he is dumb like you
    That's basically what Boris said in his documentary.

    No problem Rakas, but I am a little... Well, confused as to the purpose of TSR parties is.

    Maybe I'm just being dumb - But what does this achieve? Is it a party manifesto as to who will control the operation of TSR? Or perhaps a pitch to get people into voting and choosing seriously? :confused:

    Sorry if I'm being offensive or anything, I'm new to TSR elections and I'm completely bemused by it

    Iplayer if its still on.

    If not just google and stream it elsewhere. The bit i'm talking about is a question where he is asked whether he intentionally acts and he says that as a general strategy it is wise.

    A question for the Green Party, when you say
    "Introduce compulsory foreign language tuition as well as focusing on providing for smaller schools with more freedom for students and teachers."
    How are you going to tackle this? We currently have a baby boom approaching us, so it won't be easy to simply provide smaller schools, plus you have faith schools which have specialist entry, so simply building more schools might not be the only solution. Also, how will you encourage the high demand for foreign language teachers?
    This policy is a key interest for me, since I study languages (Well, French at AS) and looking at how other countries seem to grasp English rather quickly does make me wonder how this could work in the UK (although the Libertarians 'got me' when they mentioned "We will introduce computer coding into the national curriculum - equipping children for the future."

    (I'm not so knowledgeable when it comes to this, so apologies in advance if all this sounds rather ghastly to the more experienced TSR members)

    Also, by "Introduce legal and social equality for all," What are your policies towards a secular government?

    This election is quite interesting, but my vote is clashing with Liberals, Libertarians and the Greens...(Unless someone can persuade me to vote for their party, it is possible )

    So basically you don't have a clear view on everything? You can't all agree
    If you're going to be a large, serious party you have to have a big tent.

    But we all share a centre-right viewpoint and we can all work towards our common goals without having to agree on everything.

    I got 2 A*s in maths gcses. We did that weird additional maths paper that goes from G to A* in one paper. Fun thing was, on one of the practice papers, a whole higher level class was stumped by a question which asked you to determine the length of one side of a triangle. There had been about 10 minutes of discussion of trig and line construction methods of finding out, before we realised it was a G level question and we were supposed to measure it with a ruler.
    good for you? I was making a jockular comment relating to another post...but maybe you crave the validation for it that much :dontknow:

    My God a tent? :eek: OMG the Conservatives are poor! they can only afford a tent for the party

    tehFrance, would you prefer a man that can afford various banquet halls or the Conservatives in a tent...? most likely riddled with holes

    Vote tehFrance, he will keep you dry and warm

    You may as well scream "WE ARE THE UNDERCLASS" :sad: well I'd expect nothing from Labour so a 'Big Top' is quite impressive tbh

    I would say that I'm centre-left, but open to any right wing policies, if they are, to me rational. I am heavily interested in the environment (happy to see quite a good amount of environmental policies this time round ), education and secularism. I am against censorship and support the legalisation of marijuana (in the real HoC of course, a bill was passed to make it legal in the MHoC I think :rolleyes:). I am a republican in terms of the monarchy of course and believe that the wealth distribution is too wide in the UK. Hope that's enough to go by. (I could ramble on about the main 3, environment, education and secularism)

    To be honest, I only mentioned it for the line anecdote. It's one of my better anecdotes. Take from that what you will.

    I didn't write the smaller schools thing so I can't really defend it. Shall fetch the leader.

    On languages, there are plenty of instruments that the government can deploy. One of them is obviously throwing money around, so for example create a better bursary for language teachers or provide a lure to get foreign teachers to come over here and teach whatever it is (subject to them being competent and speaking English obviously). It's possible to do things like deregulate the qualifications needed or to encourage universities and colleges to produce more and better language graduates.

    Policies we've considered involve adopting something similar to the way the Germans do it. We'll change the way languages are taught (less clinical, more 'real'). We'll inject some ready capital where it's needed. There's a bill currently drafted up in our sub forum
    Also, by "Introduce legal and social equality for all," What are your policies towards a secular government?
    Personally, I don't really think it matters. We shouldn't have Lords Spiritual (or at least not voting ones) but there's not too much else I'd alter.

    Of the three you mention the Greens are probably closest.
