    No, I don't, because I have accepted that a) if I don't know anything about the subject matter of a bill, it's not a good idea to debate on it, and b) most of it isn't going to be high-quality because the authors are a, students with only the internet for a resource, and b, have lives.

    Now you're shifting the posts from what is good quality for here to saying "oh, it's crap by RL standards".

    Do you ever get anywhere near expecting good by RL standards or accept that most people will be rather knowledgeable on certain matters. For instance, for us u am knowledgeable on military and financial matters. You will on other things; LP on some things; Petros on some things; Aph on some things.

    I'm pretty confident that many members will be house authorities on at least one thing, particularly given that some will spend their time reading about something. as I said last night, I reckon quite safely the authority on all things nuclear and milit

    I concur. I expect I'm the house authority on most of the law, and probably most gambling-related matters. I suspect I'm probably almost there with game theory but actual maths/economics students are probably a little ahead of me there.

    We probably each have our own areas then. I'm a professional poker player.

    Ahh, very interesting, I'm a bit of a gambler myself, but it's Greyhounds that I specialise in.

    Given my low game theory attendance I expect you probably have me there

    I expect you concur on individual expertise.

    Game theory goes way over my head, but the betting industry and general gambling Is second-to-none (figuratively speaking of course)

    I did a module in it before Christmas, but didn't go to anything for it and did too little work so I barely get it, but thankfully the exam was so poorly written that we all get a near no strings attached retake and my 3 modules now are rather trivial.

    I declare to the House that I have had a night's sleep and so technically open the second day's debate on this motion.

    It is on record that there are issues with which I disagree with the Government, such as on the proposal to spend some of the overseas aid budget elsewhere. Even with this, I am not prepared to help put in place a Conservative/UKIP coalition. There is no matter of impropriety on the part of the current government either. I am not offended in any way if a member of the House has RL matters which have taken the priority for them.

    So I will not be supporting the VoNC.

    We still do not know what their plans are.

    Get them out. Now.

    I would be surprised if you welcome a pacifist to the Ministry of Defence, a £7000 council tax bill for poor people, a statement to leave the Commonwealth, and a plan to introduce vulnerable nuclear bombers.
    You havent seen the defence review.

    My statement was not to leave the Commonwealth but to apply pressure to those countries mistreating theit citizens.

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