    You havent seen the defence review.

    My statement was not to leave the Commonwealth but to apply pressure to those countries mistreating theit citizens.
    It was to leave and you knew it

    We will always agree to disagree on where to spend the foreign aid.

    If newer members believe that the current government is a bad, inactive or useless one, then I will take it as a compliment to the other left-leaning governments that we have had recently for being even better, because frankly you don't know the half of it.

    How many of the supporters were about before the start of Parliament 20?

    We probably each have our own areas then. I'm a professional poker player.
    A lot of people claim to be professional poker players, can you actually confirm that you've won money and tournaments.

    I've become pretty good myself but am not yet good enough to win casino tournaments albeit i'm generally top third in a field of 50-100 and would probably be close to winning in a random group of 10 people from an apartment block say.

    Game theory i found pretty boring though i more or less understand it.

    There's only 4 of us eligible to vote. If the socialists vote on the opposition's side you might get the majority, considering some will abstain

    It's very likely that the government will strongly urge all MP's to turn out so they have 23 already. Both Socialists have declared for saving the government so that's 25 and you Greens appear not to have declared for Abstain or Out. Hence turnout is the only thing which will put this through albeit i doubt turnout will be anywhere near low enough.

    Unfortunately for those who proposed this, they blew their load too early and should have got your price first.

    Aye. A motion to take down an incompetent government has my support. A poor budget followed by lack of bills says it all. I urge the whole house to vote aye for this motion.

    Credit where credit's due LP did ask me first. However the Green Party look like they'll vote nay, I have not asked their reasoning but I suspect the fear of a right wing coalition is one of them.

    Yes. This is not a shambles like the puppet VoNC of the (19th?) parliament since the authors have at least been honest about their motivations and have reasoning (even if its a stretch to believe it's reasoning enough) but i believe that every man has their price (especially in the Mhoc where deals have been made before) and that's where they probably lost this one the most.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see if I have a price

    Plus even if I wanted to, it's against our constitution to whip.

    Start of the 18th or 19th. It was the one where S/GP led a puppet VoNC through Mac and SciFi because you guys went nutty after the Liberals voted for coalition with us. In that particular one there had been no talks with other parties and we therefore managed to swing a few Greens our way to guarantee the result. I'm not sure it even went to vote. Recent events also made it pretty easy in terms of character assassination to destroy the credibility of those who publicly were leading it (turned out to have been written by Labour).

    Ah but you can 'recommend' that what x is offering you will accomplish y% of our manifesto proposals and take a great step forward on green issues and is therefore in your self interest.

    I guess you have a point - but usually our policies go directly against yours

    That must have been the 18th then, the 19th was the Great Swing Left when S went inactive, 18th was a coalition with Mac and Qwertish? I think I only really became active after that as I don't recall it.

    The House has voted for more of ours the past two terms than any other parties.

    Also, we've done more for green issues than you have.

    True, partially by sheer volume of output

    I can't be blamed for the House being naturally biased against the Green Party. We are certainly regaining our former strength (slowly).
