ooc: I'll rephrase , to talk about anything politically, this isn't Twitter and further comments such as what you had for lunch will be frowned upon by the media, and possibly your constituents

I would like to thank my party for the faith they have shown in me by acclaiming me leader without dissent, truly I am humbled. As Leader of the Opposition I will push for radical policies that will build on thirteen years of successful Conservative Government and I will look to the future to ensure that we jump right back into Number 10 at the first attempt.

Here's where the Tories stand: they're obsessed with being "unstoppable", and their new leader is grateful for no "dissent" from his leadership bid, and promises to be "radical". 13 years of radical Tory policies have caused greater class disparity, have created high numbers of unemployment, and have seen our public services crumble. It seems from their comments so far, the Tories have no sense of humility: pledging to return to Number 10. I've got news from them: they are stoppable, and the Labour government will not let their hard-right radicalism return. We know the damage they've caused already. Sir Dylan wants to make it even worse.

Can we just be nice and civil to each other? Where is the civility in politics these days? I congratulate my colleague for winning his election and comment an optimistic outlook for our party and I get savaged by Labour for it. A word of advice from an old lad who has served in government. It is far better to spend your time governing than spending it jawing with the Press. I wish Labour well and hope they can make our country better as we should all wish for the best for Queen and Country.

Let us remember from where we have come. Under Labour we had millions of lost workdays in strike action, we had a bailout by the International Monetary Fund, and we had 20%+ rates of inflation. Under thirteen years of Conservative Government we ended the endless strike action, rebuilt our national finances and our economy, and we brought inflation back under control. With radical new policies we can simplify the welfare state to target help to those who need it, we can continue to strengthen our economy, and we can continue to build economic liberty for everyone. I will not apologise for a legacy of runaway successes under the Conservative Governments of the last thirteen years, will Labour apologise to the majority of the country that they failed the last time they were in Government?

It is rich that someone in the Conservative Party calls for civility in politics.  We have just had 13 years where civility went the same way as "society".

"Sir" Dylan calls for Labour to apologise for the last Labour Government.  13 years ago.  Will the Tories apologise to the people of the North who they happily threw under the bus for the last 13 years?  I very much doubt it.

What a horrible thing to say. The people of this country choose governments and they don’t ask us to disparage their choice either. More respect, less finger pointing and more getting things done should be our marching orders of the day.

Mr.Macmillion seems to have forgotten that things such as the poll tax caused 13 years of unprecedented riots and now plans to institute the same "radical" policies. Let me just say the previous election made quite clear The people are sick and tired of Tory "radical" policy now they want Labour to come in and fix the messes made by the previous government.

When a Tory said they solved endless strike actions, what they mean is took all power from workers to bargain collectively for better working conditions and fair pay. Economic liberty for everyone, they shout, except for nearly 10% of our workforce who are left unemployed. Marketing language may well be the language of business, but everyday people do not buy it. These have been the 13 best years for rich businessmen, and the 13 worst for anyone who isn't upper or middle class. For the first time in many years, ordinary people will have in government people who know, understand and have lived through their difficulties. Those people can rest assure that this Labour government will not leave them behind, as the Tories did for over a decade.

The last time Labour held power, trash was not being collected and bodies were not being buried. I rather think that people of every class were damaged by that near anarchy.

And I suppose Labour is trying to be funny by putting "Sir" in sneer quotes, right, "Mrs." Harvey?

I’m more than happy to contrast our record with that of the Labour Party. Where they delivered skyrocketing inflation, we delivered control and economic stability. Where they delivered strikes and industrial chaos, we deliverd stability and security. Where they delivered stagnation, we put Britain on the front foot and led the world into a new era of prosperity. What Conservatives must now do is look at our future programme, and build one which cannot be argued with.

Funny that the tories continually spout the lie strikes, riots and protests only happened under a Labour government when in truth the 80's up until just recently were plagued and virtually defined by strikes, protests, and riots, and only stopped when tories took away power from unions and collective bargaining. While Tories aimed to protect businesses and rob the Workingman of their power Labour will give the Workingman their power back and make sure greedy CEOs think twice before attempting to abuse their workers.

After 13 years in government, the best the Tories have to offer is "Remember 1974!". While the Tories might be interested in rolling back the clock, Labour is looking to the future. Crime has skyrocketed. Unemployment is through the roof. That's the Tory record. But now the onus is on the Labour Party to deliver. I'm confident whomever wins the leadership will do exactly that, but let's be honest: it's going to take a lot of work to clean up the mess of 13 years of Tory mismanagement.

Meet the new boss, same as the old one. 

The coronation of Dylan Macmillan has shown that the Conservatives are presenting old answers to new problems of their own creation: more rampant unemployment and poverty can be cured with the policies that created it, apparently. He promises the weakness of Major and the callousness of Thatcher. The British electorate rejected both. Lets thank our lucky stars he isn't in Downing Street.

Tish Tosh. Under a conservative government the wages of the working class were raised year after year. Why must Labour persist in revisionistic theories instead of getting on with their mandate? Perhaps what the voters have gotten from Labour is nothing more than a lot of bluster and HOT AIR!

How fascinating that Labour admits that under a Conservative government we got a handle on strikes, riots and protests. How fascinating also that Labour is unhappy with that. Labour would actually prefer a country where Marxist union bosses like Arthur Scargill can run wild and terrorize people who actually want to work.

The Conservative Party has the right plans for Britain's future. We should no longer be shackled to polluting energy sources like coal. The Conservative Party supports a major expansion of nuclear, geothermal and tidal energy ... clean energy for the approaching 21st century.
