Good question, and given the statements from some Lib Dems earlier today they're all Tories anyway more or less.

I was thinking about suggesting an Amendment that would require coalitions to produce a list of the Bills they were going to co-present to prevent a "coalition in name only" from forming.
Well given that it's only the Socialists and Tories that have DONE anything recently - other than repeal some Loony bills which takes how much effort? - I can't help but wonder if the current dynamics of the HoC are not properly reflected.

We have a coalition that isn't working properly and two opposition parties doing the work of government.

Oh god ... anything but that. Perhaps we should try mandating the government to act as one first?

God no we don't need more VoNCs and if we did I suspect our absent Speaker might be first for the chopping block. Besides, the Lib Dem/Lab "coalition" has 25 MPs I think so it could never pass.

Oh, be fair. The Liberal Democrats did manage to write a few lines in a Bill suggesting that an inept or biased and unelected body should decide how the Government of this country is chosen in future. Amazingly people are voting for that Bill.

If Labour disagree with the Lib Dems on so many issues, why are they in a coalition with them?
Why else, they have 13 seats in the house, Labour have a dimished presence. Eru decided to join with Labour because he knew he could dominate them as he had so many more seats. Whether they disagree on certain issues is irrelevent as both sides dont really care as long as they are in government.

Because you put your post inside the Quote tags??

So, please answer the question. Has your party changed so much since the last thread?

But more importantly - do you think this thread can ever do what it says? Are your posts supposed to be taken as your Party's position or only your own? If the latter then this really isn't the Labour Party's Question Time thread at all, is it? It's just a "ask Sohanshah some questions" thread.
No it hasn't. The values and ideals are the same.

I don't think Alasdair's been given much sympathy recently though sadly.

Good, so why a new thread? Surely the answers in that other thread are still relevant?

Also, for the third time, please answer the question about whether this thread is your own personal opinion or if every one of your posts is on behalf of the TSR Labour Party.

His long term unannounced absence hasn't helped. Plus with dan doing such a good job people will be making comparisons.

On the second point, I'd also forgotten about the stupid "Constitution Committee" that even they don't seem to be very bothered about. I was referring to their STV Bill which simply says that the Boundaries Commission will work out all the technical details (including whether to keep FPTP or not) while in the same Bill pointing out that this (unelected) body had allowed the situation to develop whereby Labour were gaining an unfair advantage from the boundaries.

I've been impressed with Dan's work, and told him so but he says as much as he enjoyed the role he seems unkeen to return to that job.

On certain threads his efficiency has been to the detriment of the discussion though. Removing to the lobbies that voting thread was a poor decision since the Lib Dems hadn't replied to any queries.

Better than having no-one doing anything.

Not really. The bill went to a vote without any of the concerns being addressed. It devalued the democratic process.

I agree. But my point is without him, there wouldn't be no Bill there in the first place.

Alasdair has a job. Things happen which remove people from the internet for a while. It's not really fair to blame him for things being slow on here.

Don't stick words in my mouth! Okay - I go to the Co-op, 4 fresh potatoes (sized enough for doing a baked pot) will cost me £1.50. I go to Iceland and can get a ready meal for 80p. I'm thinking, I only have £15 this week after rent to survive on. I can have a meal for 80p or have to get something to go with the potato if I get those.

One needs to understand the spending habits of the poor before pontificating.
I'm well aware of the spending habits of the poor thanks. Yet I didn't grow up on ready meals. There was always some fruit on the table and a nutritious meal being cooked up.

You shouldn't take up a job if you can't keep up with the responsibility. But seeing as he's decided to step down if he's not back by the end of the month, I guess he appreciates that.
