    Center-left if you think social policy is also included into the left-right. Simply fact, not, the Lib dems, like New-labour and the Tory's are a neo-liberal largely pro-capitalist party who are just slightly less authoritarian which IS social policy.

    What I like about the 4 Axis compass is that, unlike most of the media and population, understand that left-right is largely economics and libt and authoritarian is social.

    If you could name me one single thing that would classify the lib dems as left wing on the whole, please do

    This isn't real life.


    UKIP are to the left of real life UKIP.


    The Conservatives are probably slightly right of the actual Tories.


    Both Labour and the Lib Dems are left of their real life counterparts.


    And the Socialists aren't as far left as actual socialism.

    Seriously? Don't know how you can equate UKIP = Centre

    Ideologically labour haven't been left wing since 1980 and clause 4 which I THINK is 78'.
    TSR HOC politics is different to RL.

    On TSR Labour are still very left and we are further right. On TSR the Liberal Democrats and UKIP are literally very close to the centre.

    All TSR parties are also much more liberal than their RL counterparts.

    TSR parties do not just enact RL policies.

    Are you not trying to represent real life in some way, or atleast stick to party ideology over pragmaticism or political change and 'norm' over time?

    I mean UKIP have gone more right as time as gone on, so I can see the reasons there, but really, centre ground?

    The tory ideology would be more right than the current tory govt, so yeah.

    Labour I can see why they are more left.

    But the lib dems were originally further right idelogically at the time of the social democrat+liberal party period, and the socialists really should be as far left as they are, surely not further right?

    The Mps will have changed so we will do it again but basically you see the Lib Dems only marginally left and UKIP centre.

    Yes and the Conservatives at the time were raging liberals, that is just wrong if you ask me. Hopefully we have shifted further right in general as dear god :facepalm2:

    Although Labour won they will have to form a coalition-TSR's voting system is actually slightly realistic and what's with the lack of seats there is 600 in a real election.

    I'm confused. Did you mean to write unrealistic?

    First Past The Post wouldn't really work in Model elections such as these because there are no proper/set constituencies in the Model. Frankly speaking, the structure of FPTP is too complicated for this forum. Hence, Proportional Representation is probably the best way to hold an election in the MHoC
    and what's with the lack of seats there is 600 in a real election
    Actually, there are 650 Members of Parliament. There aren't that many seats here because of my previous statement, and frankly speaking, we wouldn't have the activity to justify 650 or so seats.

    Yeah it really is unfortunate. You guys didn't deserve to lose a seat, again RL opinions of the Lib Dems hit you guys really hard.

    Just one more time - is the Tory leader going to resign now with dignity, or will he wait to be thrown out by his party?
    Why would he resign? I believe I can speak for the rest of my party in saying that he enjoys our full backing, and I personally believe that he is the best leader we could have at this time, regardless of recent election results.

    Interesting insight into how labour would deal with a similar situation there though...

    Thank you to those who are respecting my wishes not to be part of a coalition. I'm not going to join in the discussion as to whether the MRLP is left, right or centre ground, just start trying to form the TSR MRLP.
