    FTFY

    I implore everyone to vote Liberal first and Libertarian second in this election.

    #Therightchoiceforbritain
    Very rude.

    I prefer kinder, gentler politics.

    And of course it's ironic that you are calling my party a party of snakes when you literally made a statement just days ago, calling yourself one. You said you snaked your way to the Liberal leadership, so I can't see how any other party could possibly take the title "party of snakes" from you.

    Tell that to your party when they reneged against agreements for the good of themselves.

    Can't help but notice the irony in that.
    As the right honourable member has found the time to comment petty things, I wonder if he has considered his position as leader of the party?

    where is Mr Spoilt Ballot?
    It's the last option on the poll, "Joep95, Independent candidate".

    Are you going to keep begging me since you begging my party members to get me to resign didn't work? Yeah, that's petty.

    Nothing petty. Would just like to see a governable Tory Party. You know I'll always have a sweet spot in my heart for that place. It is my former home after all.

    Then why are you even here
    :crast: We all have our reasons. I find some mild entertainment value from the whole thing.

    Seeing the Tories copying Liberal policies here was mildly amusing.

    We all have our reasons to be there

    We all have a thing or two to learn

    We all needed something to cling to

    So we did

    The party doesn't need me in Leadership to know that the Liberals should probably be avoided for a while. Sweet spot? Being honest really isn't your thing is it...

    Finally, I’m sure I’ll be painted as a Snake by certain people here. I finally admit it - I am. The fact is - I snaked my way to being leader, and I’ve snaked numerous times since then. It may not be the most honourable thing to do, but it’s how this place runs. It’s a feature of the game should you wish to play it, and those of you who paint it as a bad thing - it’s just how the game is meant to be played.
    I guess it's a compliment after all, from a self-proclaimed Snake and clearly a Snake Apologist.

    Just as amusing as the Liberals copying Libertarian policy?

    You're very funny! Har har!

    Patronising message from the Labour leader will do little to get them extra votes.

    Substantial policy in the NatCons manifesto despite looking overly-polished on the presentation.

    I'd be too partial to comment on my own party's especially since we haven't contained ourself to one image, meaning it's incomparable for me really.

    Foreward by the Libertarians indicates to me that they are lacking people to be MPs. And why they want to "stand up against the government" when it's possible that they'll soon be in one indicates they haven't proofread given recent events.

    Conservatives could do with thinking of their own policies. Can't help but see the irony in the claim to support "reason, pragmatism and economic liberalism".

    Joe - not worthy of comment. (Though I like the pink.)

    Our candidate is an ex-libertarian, it's natural to happen and the two parties have natural overlap.

    And we have thought of our own policies, thanks. Doesn't help your case when you have a Libertarian idea in a Liberal manifesto.

    Can't help but see the irony in the first few words of the full manifesto - "today, we live in turbulent times"...

    So what makes this any different? Isn't it just natural like you say? Or is it different when the name on top of it says Conservative?

    It's natural for a member of one party who used to be a member of another party to share views from the 2. When that member is standing for a by-election their manifesto should be reflective of their views. This is.

    It's nothing to do with the fact that it says Conservative at the top except for the fact that you're the one who's included a policy from the Liberal manifesto at the GE, that you didn't have then.

    NIT.

    I'm not talking about the member, I'm talking about the policies in the manifesto that is clearly under the name of your party.

    And those views are the same - to implement NIT which is a Libertarian policy.

    It's nothing to do with the fact that it says Conservative at the top except for the fact that you're the one who's included a policy from the Liberal manifesto at the GE, that you didn't have then.
    I think it does because the Liberal Party never had NIT in their manifesto until the recent GE, you did not have a pledge like that before then. But it's OK to copy something then because it's natural but not now because I assume it's unnatural? Sorry, your argument doesn't make any sense.
