    Good morning to all who is reading this, today I would like to release a statement concerning the future of the Libertarian movement. As you may recall I myself am a former Liberal MP who left the party in Summer for personal reasons and I became attracted to a proposed libertarian movement, it started well with a great recruitment drive and despite a failed bill proposoal the future looked great.

    Unfortunately it went downhill from there with many people who had expressed an interest losing their interest for the movement and so it died down. I myself was very busy with university preparation and the others may have been also however there is no deyning that the first wave of the movement was a failure. I am here today to ask you in the house to please allow our movement to become an official party, I would assume leadership of the Libertarians and I believe that having a party would allow us to run more effectively as we will be able to have a greater influence in the house. I hope that you will understand and appreciate my efforts in the house as a former MP and take this as being good enough for even a trial run, as leader I vow to deliver debate, ideas and work with others on legislation. The party would express a willingness to work with others as you can see by my contributions to the house, we are supportive of Labour/Socialists proposal on trade union reforms and would be glad to extend a welcome hand. As you of course may expect our own proposals and ideas wouldn't be seen so early yet we plan on introducing elements of privatisation to the NHS (ensuring efficiency and a better service), a greater focus on mental health (hence our support and my previous compliments to the government for their additional spending). We have many more ideas and I would like to announce that RomanBowling33 would serve as deputy leader. Please give us the chance as an official party, I completely understand any reservations but again I hope you can realise my previous efforts and understand how much I love this website. I would also like to ask the likes of PetrosAC, RayApparently and Quamquam123 to support my claims and help me!

    Thanks!

    It's entirely Fez's decision and he could pull a surprise, but in the wake of the National Liberal failure my bet would be that you'll need more than 2 active members to be approved. Go recruit in UK politics; there are lots of active libertarians there.


    Otherwise, see the post I just made in your thread for my take on your situation.

    Despite our objective of minimum government spending, we recognise the quality of mental health care in Britain is not good enough and so we would like to announce that we shall support plans to spend on mental health, raising it to a good level before privatising the rest.

    Hear, hear! I am glad to see that we are finally making progress on bringing true freedom and liberty to the people and the businesses of the UK, something no other party is capable of. As Deputy Leader of this movement I'd like us to open up a discussion on exploring NHS privatisation in general including the possibility of private-providers for mental health services. The liberalisation of firearms ownership laws in this country is also something I'd like to see and I hope at least some in the Tories and UKIP would be open to co-operation there. Additionally, to members of other parties who are feeling disaffected by their party's support for excessive taxation and spending or overbearing social restrictions, I'd recommend at least considering us as an alternative.

    I would like to extend my support, I believe that TitanCream could make this additional party a success, I don't know a lot about RomanBowling33 but if they are anything like titan then this project will not fail.

    One valid objection to not supporting the this is the Nat Libs but if that is going to be used then when will be the correct time to start a new party, when will enough time have elapsed?

    Well I'm fairly new to this and do have some rl commitments which mean I won't be able to give this 100% of the attention I'd like to but I'll have enough time to do what I can to ensure the Libertarian group is as successful as possible.

    Honestly, you need more members. Two simply isn't enough. Look at the Nat Libs.

    I can guess I can vouch for TC's 'reliability' but one person (or even two) does not a party make. 10 active members is a reasonable threshold.

    Whilst I could work with a left-lib party I'll be sorry to see one that values the right to weild a gun over the right to healthcare free at the point of use. :sad: Without the people who made the Libs one of the MHoCs most intellectually rigorous parties I fear it will be a hollow mish-mash of radical right-wingedness and hypocrisy. I'm happy to be proved wrong though.

    Hear, hear!The Nat-libs started with 10 active members who all disappeared almost immediately after their creation, I see no reason to believe that this party would survive for any longer with one active member and an unproven newbie.

    Are you being cheeky or just plain silly? This question is equally directed at those who speak of TitanCream's reliability, lol. He did practically nothing to get this thing going when there were many potential members around and now that pretty much everyone have lost interest, he wants to appoint himself leader and run a party of two members. Good one… Everyone should be subject to the same rules, especially concerning major steps like party creation given that one failed recently and another is on the brink of its death.

    There's no such thing as free healthcare, there's either healthcare you voluntarily pay for when you use or healthcare you're forced to pay for without necessarily using.

    You're not forced to pay for the healthcare, you can move to a country where you'll be charged for being treated for cancer.

    I'm pretty confident that I as one member, could do a lot more than some parties combined.

    Or I can stay here and try and try and change the system so that I'm not forced to pay for others' treatments with the possibility of being locked in a cage or having the state take an even greater amount of my money if I refuse.

    Did you not read where I said 'free at the point of use'?
