    I know that this is slightly backwards but to heck with it

    Alright then, Aph and TheDefiniteArticle


    Given my latest SoI fully backed by the government, do you now see that Labour aren't being pulled any closer to the centre than we were originally?

    It is yet to be seen. I'm concerned about removing or refusing to implement market regulations, not something about energy.

    You got me, as the term progresses I'll be changing my avatar from Clem Attlee to Harold Wilson to Ed Miliband and finally to Tony Blair.

    So best to stop it at New Labour, though I'm very comfortable where I am - according to chief statistician Aph, pretty much bang in the middle of TSR Labour - which is pretty left-wing anyway. I've never really felt majorly at odds with any of my party members from an ideological sense (a remarkable achievement in my party...) except on the issue of same-sex schooling.

    The House has received a statement on energy which is most welcome. Will the minister responsible for housing be setting out the Government's plans in the next few days?

    I will be looking to set out my initial plans in the next few days, certainly by next weekend, but I think it is vital to work across the whole house on such an important issue, so I look forward to all feedback I get once the Government's initial plans are set out.

    UKIP and other such organisations have been stating that we should block all refugees entering the country & Europe (which would endanger their lives), the threat that they woudl do this is used to try and influence the government and intimidates Muslims for the purpose of advancing their political and racial (Nigel has said many times he'd be scared to live next to a Romanian) veiws. So it meets all the criteria in the 2000 terrorism act to be designated a terrorist organisation by the home sec.
