    I call on the Prime Minister to dissolve Parliament and call a General election.

    I ask for that for two reasons;

    - The period of elections was agreed at 5-6 months, which have now passed.

    - The parliament is quite dead at the moment and an election may awaken it, also this would allow a new speaker to be chosen who is actually active.

    The TSR election was held on 5th May, so 5th November will complete six months. In addition, the PM holds the right to call a general election whensoever he wishes.

    If there is to be one in November, we will also need to work out a format for it.

    Look all I was saying is that maybe it would liven it up a bit.

    Also yes the 5th November is 6 months but the time agreed was 5-6 months so as 5th October is 5 months we are in that range.

    Again elections are held at the discretion of the PM.

    If you have no confidence in the PM, then that is another question and you can (try) to organise a vote of no confidence.

    I have a question for the PM and any Liberal Democrat whilst we're at it.

    What have you done whilst being the government of TSR which makes people want to vote for you in the future? Or what have you done full stop?

    Reply to the House. I'll repeat my question;

    In true politico style, I'll answer your question with a question. There are, at the moment, around two active parties here. One of these parties effectively has one member. The other is the government. What makes them want to vote for anyone else? Or at all?

    That didn't answer my question. So, Mr Prime Minister, I'll ask you again, and perhaps this time you can answer my question.

    Well, actually, I think it did. Well done on trying the old anti-Vienna "repeat the question" tactic, however.

    They will vote for us because there is no effective opposition, if they vote at all.

    The number of bills discussed and voted upon, although not huge, would suggest that something has been done. This is an internet forum ffs, we aren't really in parliament.

    The only bills that were seriously debated were presented by the Conservative and Green parties.
