    Ok, but if those are your values, you're not a libertarian, you're far-right/alt-right.
    I suppose, I just find libertarianism to be great apart from this one glaring issue.

    If you have open borders what stops an enemy Country from just walking right in?

    Meh, especially without free movement, libertarianism is almost the single political system which minimises equality of opportunity.

    Mass immigration from a single Country that incentivises it would be. Though in fairness I should have put market intervention by foreign States.
    That's not actually a thing though.

    So you're telling me it's impossible? Or that you're going to set up this system and just hope that it doesn't happen and destroy the Country?

    3 reasons:

    1) Gladstone is an independent
    2) We have a deputy leader and numerous members of the party he could have asked to post this message
    3) _gcx said so

    I think we shouldn't be asking us to prove something as false, but Gladstone should prove it's true

    I am not a libertarian, I do not propose setting up this system.

    Though for the record I think the idea that one country can intervene in the market of another in any meaningful way by encouraging the emigration of their own labour force is completely detached from reality. Especially in the context of the libertarian ideology which is about scaling back one's own government not the imagined influence of other governments.

    You ask for proof but That'sGreat is a member of the Libers, Gladstone isn't so it would seem to me that the burden of proof falls on Gladstone first. Why is he making statements for a party that isn't his when one of that party's MPs is saying he has no right to?

    I'm not asking you to prove this wasn't the case, but I'm not going to be live either side until there is proof. and he hasn't said anything.

    as above I'm asking either side to prove their claims. it's very much he said she said.

    If Gladstone has posted a false statement then why should the Libertarians trust him or allow him to retain his seat? It seems to me that Gladstone is pulling all the strings.

    It seems to me that Gladstone holds something over the Leadership of the Libertarians, because otherwise, why else are they bending so low to him?? :holmes:

    Considering he announced his resignation from the party and actually left the party, that means he is no longer in the party - and since he hasn't joined another party, he is an indie.
