    Oh right. I was just wondering. Enjoy your lurking.
    An aside, but I'm eagerly awaiting the presented TSR budget. Having written one (I'm now on the second), I know that it's rather intensive, and also an interesting process. I have no economics background whatsoever, so writing a budget has been invaluable for me in forming opinions.

    Erm what? So why was it bad enough when the Conservatives were in Government and not even halfway into the term you decide that you should propose a MoNC? I don't think you get how bad this is. I'll reiterate for you so you realise the scale of this problem.

    This Government is inactive, causing it to trigger three consecutive by-elections, no Budget (but yet you thought that only 47 days into the ConLib Government, no Budget is not acceptable), puny number of SoIs and bills (again, you thought that only 47 days in this wasn't acceptable for a different Government) and amongst those who have lost their seats are from the Cabinet, including the Chancellor. Who is supposed to be a perfect model to all of us of what an active member of Government should look like but... he's just lost his seat. Few members are making legislation, fair enough, that's normal. But it's not normal if it is always the same members and it's always from the same party.

    I think you ought to reconsider your position on this.
    These are fair points and if I were an MP I'd have a very tough decision to make.

    I'm glad to hear it and look forward to presenting it myself. I guess we're the same on the background (at least, beyond the basics) and agree with you on that front. I'd be interested to see your first Budget though.

    Chancellor on Reddit MHOC. I lurk on TSR.
    Your former chief sec on Reddit, Friedmanite, is in all likelihood the now infamous TSR Member Fleky, were you aware of this?

    You guys are aware about the drama going on over there, I'm surprised.

    Answer's no, though. What's all the stuff he did?

    Yes, I am a member of the CLibs on reddit along with many of my colleagues in the TSR libertarians.

    Fleky on TSR got booted out of the TSR Tories for a variety of reasons that I’ll let CoffeeGeek explain to you. He was obsessed with Milton Friedman and the Laffer curve and had poor SPaG like Friedmanite.

    Anyway after being kicked from the Tories he joined my party, the libertarians, went on a massive recruiting spree which got him supporters who were personally loyal to him, this allowed him to be elected deputy leader.

    During the last GE in June he was found guilty of electoral fraud by breaking rules on unsolicited private messages, this resulted in him being banned.

    In spite of his ban, he almost instantly made a duplicate account called F.V Wieser to try and deceive the house of his identity to keep going; however it was blatantly obvious that he was Fleky and he was eventually banned again, this time for a longer period, we have not seen him since despite his second ban coming to an end; that is why we believe he is Friedmanite.

    yeah, very true —

    Support the Motion! A Government whose most senior members seats have to go to by-election is clearly a Government that isn't up for the job of governing the country!

    Even when irrelevant, Flecky seems to be brought up in every conversation it seems
