    How do you feel about competing against your former number 2 and possibly your current boss?

    This just proves that even his excellency, the supreme leader is human.

    He makes simple mistakes like the best of us which shows his connection with the rest of the house as just a standard bloke, which makes him suitable to serve as Speaker.

    Likewise, I wish adam9317 luck in the Speakership election which looks to be close at the moment with the candidates who have declared their intentions. It should be noted, Aph , Adam departed UKIP on good terms, there were no arguments, there was no falling out, and we have kept in regular contact. The competition will be friendly with the winner having the respect of the loser: I do not see the basis for your suggestive question.

    If you were elected, would you have to downgrade to being a CA?

    No, mods that are Speaker get both CA and mod powers and keep their purple.

    SF has answered this, but if voted in I would speak to Danny/ whoever else and see if my role within the ST could be postponed/ reduced input, as I would rather devote more time to the speakership role as opposed to ST

    Become irrelevant when yours impeach on others.
    Religion, culture and tradition are not arguments for doing something. If it is clearly a detriment to society people shouldn't do it. We used to drown witches for religion and cultural reasons do you want to do it again? Why do the rights of the dead outweighs the rights of the living? They are dead they aren't important.
    When you prevent people from practicing their religion,culture or tradtions your taking away their freedom, its a free country after all. Just like you have the right to your atheistic views so why can't everyone eles? So your saying dead aren't important, so it wouldn't bother you if your mum got cremated and someone pee on your mum ashes? because the dead aren't important after all

    No it isn't a free country. Only anarcho-communist countries are truly free.

    I'm saying that the dead are less important then those who are alive. Or do you think that we should prioritise the needs of the dead over those of the living? And religion and culture get shaped by the law and society around them. People will object for a short while because there are always people who like to whinge but within a generation it will just be accepted.

    You do realise no one in the right mind will support this, right? you have people rioting on streets and out for the person head who made that bill. I get where your coming from, eventrully us humans would have used up all the available space to bury the dead and there will be no more space to bury them. But forcing people to cremate and donate organs is not the answer. Why not just bury them in the sea or something or just send people off in to outer space lol :lol:

    Tbh lets just agree to diagree
