As part of the TSR general election campaign, we in the TSR Model House of Commons are running four Ask the Leader events to help people decide who to vote for.

In this thread, the leader of the TSR Labour Party, the Leader of the Opposition RedLuxemburg, will be taking questions.

The rules:
In this thread each TSR user may ask one question, then once it has been answered may ask one follow-up question. Discussion is allowed to continue in the Labour Q&A thread over in the MHoC subforum if you like, but that falls outside the format of this event.
You may wish to tag the leader when you ask your question, but I imagine they will be keeping an eye on this thread.

What is the MHoC and why are we doing this?
See in here!

What is the election for?
Since 2005 TSR has hosted a Model House of Commons (MHoC) as part of its politics section. This is basically a role-playing game, which is open to anyone who thinks it might sound fun. Every six months or so there is a general election to elect 50 MPs. There are currently four TSR parties, plus independents, and a government and opposition are formed after each election. Currently the Conservatives are the government and Labour are the official opposition.

Why vote?
Part of the fun of the MHoC is that its election results reflect what TSR users actually think, and the way that we try to get as good a cross-section of people as possible. The election is also a chance for us to make ourselves known to other TSR users, some of whom might be interested in getting more involved as party members or MPs.

Can I be elected an MP or get involved in some other way?
Yes! Rather than electing individual MPs, votes are cast for parties (unless for an individual independent candidate), which then distribute the seats to their members. This means that there is often a chance for people who first come across the MHoC at election time to become MPs fairly soon afterwards. If you are interested in joining a party, the best place to start is in the welcome thread.

How has the private sector ‘mistreated’ the industries you plan to nationalise? Is it party policy to nationalise if you deem the private sector has mistreated an industry, or is there a logical argument you have for it?
