FHOC Update - Lib Dems official oppostion

. Well I promised the occasional update from the Facebook House of Commons so here it is. The Liberal Democrats have been made the official opposition and Nikki Thomson, the leader of the Liberal Democrat group is now the official leader of the opposition. The Commons itself now has 383 members with 115 of them are Liberal Democrats. Suspiciously the Conservatives seem to be almost entirely absent or inactive.

Currently the our position on Iraq is being considered for submission on Monday. Perhaps unsurprisingly this is not a particularly controversial issue. The question has been raised over striking a balance between opposing the government and not demoralising troops and slight skepticism about the viability of a full withdrawal. However, there is a clear majority in favour of a phased withdrawal of troops. More updates to follow...
