    Well, well, well.

    Perhaps it's time the adults in the room took over?
    Unfortunately the AFL haven’t formed yet and if we did we would currently only have 1 seat so the adults would be unlikely to takeover

    Previously in this thread, I asked my honourable and right honourable friends across the house to vote against this motion. In light of tonight's events, I come before you to say I will be voting against the Prime Minister. I will make this brief, and am happy to answer a few questions if I get them.

    1 - I have today announced my resignation as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Secretary, and have asked the Acting Leader of my party to give our notice to the PM we will be withdrawing from the coalition.

    2 - I have no reason to doubt the words of my honourable friend the former deputy leader when he says he was forced out. CG has repeatedly denied this to me, but I no longer have trust in the word of our Prime Minister.

    3 - This motion is specifically about the decision on whether or not this coalition is viable to Govern the country. It is clear it is not and so I urge all my friends and enemies alike across this house to vote for this motion and to bring down a Prime Minister which, it is clear, is not fit to run a country.

    Finally, the PM and I shared a good relationship through the coalition until the final week, where it became apparent the Prime Minister was more interested in retaining his position, rather than keeping a shred of dignity left as he clings on to power, approaching any member of the house who he things might be able to save the party, and himself, from his exploding career.

    Resignation is a bit meaningless when the coalition is over anyway....

    Cowardly hiding I expect, although I have reason to believe he is online at this moment.

    To be fair it's not difficult to keep your head down when you only have one member.

    I’ve been rather quiet regarding the very MoNC I agreed to second ( I must admit Connor27 it isn’t the definition of style that I was expecting). But in light of tonight’s statement, it should be made clear that this government cannot be allowed to continue. I respect CG as a person and as a friend ( something that I hope this game never again gets in the way of), but that should be no excuse to cover my feelings regarding this motion. (Even if my motives behind supporting it weren’t solely for government dissatisfaction)
    I commend both AFC and Tommy for their statements tonight and in some ways respect how they’ve handled things; trying to remain integrity within the collapse of a government that should have been on paper, for lack of better wording, “strong and stable”. If the Liberals indeed decide to withdraw from this coalition, I believe now they’d do so with integrity and should have confidence in their decision on that matter.

    Would you like to tell the ‘honourable members of the House’ about your hissy fits, open threats, or disloyalty in off-site conversations, or do you deem those irrelevant? Furthermore, could you please explain to the members how anyone could ‘force you to resign’ with the use of ‘veiled threats’ if your position within the party was as solid as you seem to imply? Are you sure you weren't simply overly sensitive to constructive criticism (which you yourself once said you ‘hate’) after numerous complaints against your behaviour and thus misinterpreted the message, or refused to even consider it altogether?
    I believe our Honourable member here makes gross simplifications about Vitiate, or Kallum’s, actions off sight. I’ve been assured by CG that I do not know the full story, and I’d even be willing to admit the night Kallum resigned and explained the circumstances to me off site, I’d acted rashly that compromised a working relationship between CG and I. And yet, LP, hissy fits are hardly accurate, you must know that a leader, a prime minister, has enough influence to encourage the resignation of a member within the party. The circumstances certainly were rough, and my understanding that the day of Vit’s resignation came with a heavy disagreement with the Prime minister, but surely it would be unreasonable to essentially force someone out over the issue. The words quoted from Vit are unsurprising if the heated fallout were to occur, and I encourage all members sitting on the fence on this MoNC tonight to reconsider their position in light of this new evidence. Consider these incidents not as isolated incidents as the Conservatives lead us to believe, but in a line of coalition splits were the leadership have begun diverging from their initial goal. I believe the coalition had the intentions of being a good government for all but that idea is now lost and their position untenable.

    Ah ok

    Thank you. All this scandals makes my party look good we were loyal and faithful to the government and stuck to our word and followed the agreement. To bad I can't say that about other parties in the government oh well.

    He cited that I am condescending, arrogant and aggressive.
    I'd just like to say that I personally believe this to be untrue, and to everyone else, no I was not paid to say this.
