    how about The
    Standing at the Back Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party
    ?
    Since most people here are students we really could have a PM that's"William Pitt the even younger" esque.

    It could be said now that the UKIP/Lib Dem leaders are further right than previously. Either way I think it's worthwhile to have a non-idealogue solutions-based party that could somehow be above the petty squabbles that the Lib Dems and UKIP engage in with the other parties. It would make coalition building much easier for both left and right blocs.
    is taking a dig at UKIP and the Lib Dems in a thread for the creation of a new party not rather "petty" in itself? :confused:

    I have a feeling this could end up going the same way as last time, with people jumping to say they'll join, but not having any appreciation of what the Model House of Commons is about, nor any desire to stay active after a couple of months. The last incarnation of the MRLP had HoC stalwarts but still suffered from inactivity.

    What I don't want to happen is for me to send a request to the admins to set it up, only for me or Aaran to have to go back to them and request it be shut down a couple of months later. That kind of thing is only going to make it less likely that parties will be approved in future.

    With this in mind, I wonder if we can develop a better criteria for ensuring new parties will be able to sustain themselves.

    If you're serious about Loonyism and starting a party, I suggest that as we have an election approaching, you submit manifestos and run as independents. It will give you a better understanding of the how the MHoC works and if you win an MP seat, it will allow the party to submit bills and vote, should it be formed. I'll then review the situation after the election.

    You can find details about the upcoming election here, and the newbie guide to the HoC is here.

    Negative observations are not baseless digs. I can substantiate the points I make, and I'm sure most agree that the flaws exist in both these parties and the others - TSR Labour included.

    If you ask me i think that he was actually one of the best PM's we ever had (4th on my list).

    He is not in my top 5.

    Regarding the MRLP, 10 members, 3 months and 150 posts are required to become a Party
