Belmaria wrote:I want a re-vote because I'm convinced that new arguments have surfaced which may cause many others to change their minds.

What new arguments? Why have they only surfaced now? Why do you assume they will convince people who abstained to vote your way?

There were enough abstentions to overturn the vote if they were all abstained nays. If we were to vote on the matter again, the bill might get repealed. I, for one, had not considered the potential for the act to create a housing bubble. I'm now reconsidering my vote in favor of the initial bill, a...

I know, but we are the NSG Senate . I suppose it's more of a technicality and at the end of the day people will end up calling each other what they like. We haven't been a Senate since Aurentina. Baltonian Seimas . Calaverdean Parliament . Dagmari Parliament . Plus, it makes little sense for a unic...

You could probably merge the two together - they seem to be the exact same just with a little bit more on the speaker and the queue in Atlantica's.

I think we should just remove the traditional marriage section from the platform. If we don't take a stance then I think we've got the balance right between realism and social liberalism.

The people handing the election to the Tories are the ones determined to throw the party into instability because of their petty desire to advance their ideology over the will of the base. Labour MPs aren't remotely idealogical though. They prioritise the pragmatic need to win elections over their ...

Because fuck all the evidence that says migrants as a collective are net benefit to the British economy, especially when contrasted with native population as a collective - we've got xenophobes to pacify! But surely it'd be worth it to keep us in the EU? From a pragmatic point of view, what would d...

Smith has yet to produce leadership abilities and communication skills. Corbyn seemed (and presumably still is) a good orator when he was nominated. How do you know Smith wouldn't lead to electoral disaster? Owen Smith's campaign launch was pretty good and he's skilled rhetorically speaking, but yo...

NO...? They've won by-elections in safe seats, but had terrible local elections results in England and got decimated in Scotland.

He's basically Corbyn but Welsh and pro-Trident so I'm kind of confused why the anti-Corbyn sentiment is on board with unifying behind him, but oh well. Because he wouldn't lead Labour to electoral disaster. The problems with Corbyn have rarely related to his policies, but rather his leadership abi...

Aye

Also, if anyone objects to the coalition with the NWP you should speak up. Nobody has said anything to oppose it so I assume everyone is happy if we make it official, but if people are against it then now would be a good time to say so that we can sort out a vote.
