Motion of No Confidence in Her Majesty's GovernmentWatch
- Political Ambassador
I would need to be strongly convinced before I support this motion. The government has released some decent legislation and has been relatively stable, certainly in contrast to previous Parliaments. I'm not sure exam season can be used to justify this either.
This is unjustified and there's no need for it as far as I'm concerned. Very knee-jerk-y.
No solid precedent. Given the MHoC is as bad as the US Senate when it comes to partisanship on major votes the passage of budgets is hardly common, the more worrying thing is just how many government MPs were dissenting.
I must apologise for the lack of a Defence SOI but I have been busy with my final year of University. However, I can assure everyone that the SOI itself is written it just needs costings which I will endeavor to do over the next few days seeing as I now have a few days respite from other work. I do hope the rest of the house can reflect on our large output of legislation this term, and our stability, to allow us to see it through to the end.
With the Peace Corps bill passing, your Statement of intent will about cutting spending by 20% to pay for the peace corps: costing should be quick when you have decided what to get rid of.
This talk of 'long-held precedent' from a fairly new member is also surprising, even more so when this precedent does not exist.
