    There shouldn't be any 'official' 'TSR X Party' threads outside the MHoC so if you're going down that vein then it'd have to be the second once.
    I've encountered a problem.

    I've no idea how to change the name of the thread.

    What is your opinion on:

    The Economy,
    Fracking,
    GMO's,
    Academies,
    Trident,
    Corporate tax avoidance

    Thanks.

    My views on following:

    The Economy:
    Mixed Economy, left leaning,hard on tax avoidance and companies subject to strict regulations. Essentially centrist type economy for the normal citizen but a far left type of economy for large corporations.

    Fracking: Frack off.

    GMO's; These have been shown to bad for health. They are freakshows of nature. I oppose them.

    Academies: Academies are a step towards privatisation, they put profit before quality of education and often make schools perform worse. I would change all academies back into schools.

    Trident: Its a step away from world peace. I oppose this.

    Corporate Tax Avoidance: I admire the work of Teddy Roosevelt and his idea of the "big stick" in order to whip fat cats into line. As for tax avoidance it wouldn't exist if I were PM.

    In real life I find myself caught up. I support so many parties in many ways - Green Party on the environment and foreign policy, hard left (corbyn) on domestic policy and education and Liberal democrats for the economy and other things. I don't fit into any party 100%. I love the greens but they are too soft on immigration and some other things. I volunteer with the young Lib Dems as a hobby and I have done work experience with Nick Clegg. However, the TSR liberals do not align with me.

    Please get back to me soon. And if we agree if love to join. I tried joining the Labour Party a while back but it was a joke. The CT took months to process the application and the leader said they would let me in but they didn't. Hope that won't happen again.

    The economy - Mixed economy as a transition towards a non-capitalist one. Keynesian policy in a mixed economy with mass nationalisation towards a democratically planned economy.

    Fracking - Meh. Although there is evidence that it causes earthquakes, so only as a last resort.

    GMOs - not opposed to GMO innovation as this biotechnology has incredible potential to benefit humanity in many ways if used properly.

    Academies - no, all schools should be under local authority control. Free schools are just as bad.

    Trident - no, nuclear deterrents are a thing of the past.

    Coporate tax avoidance - obviously no.

    The CT no longer take so long to process applications to MHoC parties, however every applicant must undergo a dupe check. PM cranbrook_aspie if you have any questions.

    Despite our differences I taught there may be an issue we agree on
    Today we watched a documentary on northern Ireland and southern Ireland regarding abortion. I know we disagree fundamentally on alot of things but whether we are socialist or capitalist we can agree on something as concerning as this. I feel that abortion should be legalized as I saw the horrific effects on women and what it meant. What do you think and is the left wing party in Northern or Southern Ireland pushing for change?( I do not live there so want to know the chances of the law changing)

    Abortion is a tricky thing, and in the south it's reinforced by the Eighth Amendment of the Irish constitution, which recognises the equal right to life of the unborn and the mother. In 2013 they barely voted through a law allowing abortion in limited circumstances: medical grounds or in cases where suicide is regarded as a danger.
    They tried to increase the abortion law a bit more in July but the two largest parties, both being centre-right, defeated it. Sinn Féin and the People Before Profit Alliance are 2 of the 5 largest parties that are left wing. There is a Labour Party but they are centre-right as well, and they're the ones that backed the Bill.

    The chances? Next to zero in this parliament, probably not gonna happen in the next few years considering the country is mostly rural and so fairly tribal in voting Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael, both being centre-right parties against abortion.

    Abortion's a tricky thing. The mother has a right of choice but abortion is still infanticide, no matter how young they are. I'm for limited abortion because I don't want it to be like the UK, where people kill their unborn children just because "they don't want it" or find it an "inconvenience".

    Honestly, if you're going to keep taking the risk sooner or later you're going to get your hand caught in the cookie jar.

    However, in cases of incest, rape, sexual abuse, "fatal foetal abnormalities", or when a woman's life and health are at risk or in danger, the final decision must rest with the woman
