    Evening MPs,

    Tonight we have votes on a few items, the first of which is a statement of intent from the Government. Since this is a new format, I'd like to make a note of saying that such statements are not legislation, they do not have the capacity to alter TSR Law. They affirm the intent of the Government in areas where legislation would be inappropriate. The other two votes are petitions (here and here).

    On a unrelated note, it's probably not news to the majority of you but just to confirm: there will unfortunately not be a referendum on Scottish independence held on TSR (as requested in V665). Referenda on TSR have always been conducted with mass-PMs so that they're accessible to the whole of TSR's userbase (as stipulated in the Constitution) and not just a specific section of the site, and this is not available at the moment for the independence question. (MPs are, however, free to debate the topic on this thread.)

    Best regards,
    Faland

    Afternoon MPs,

    A general election has been called by the Prime Minister who has also presented a statement of resignation to the House. The schedule for the election can be found in the notification thread along with details on how the Nineteenth Parliament will draw to a finish.

    So far seven sets of nominations have been submitted for the MHoC Awards, keep them coming.

    Good evening MPs,

    Tonight there is the small matter of a general election, and likewise we have the results of two constitutional amendments, one passing and the other not (due to the requirement of a 2/3rds majority).

    (Nominations for the MHoC Awards are in, I've decided to postpone voting on them by a few days.)


    Results

    VA99 - Opposition Coalitions Amendment

    The Ayes to the right: 24
    The Noes to the left: 6
    Abstentions: 7

    The Ayes have it, the Ayes have it! The Constitution is amended!


    VA98 - Dual Party Memberships Amendment

    The Ayes to the right: 20
    The Noes to the left: 14
    Abstentions: 5

    The Noes have it, the Noes have it! The Constitution is not amended!

    Evening all,

    After building up an unassailable mountain of hype, it's now time to announce the nominations for the Model House of Commons Awards 2016.






    And remember to unleash yourselves in the general election debate; the mass-PM approaches.

    Afternoon everyone,

    The general election continues! You may have noticed the plug in the 'New on TSR' widget on the top-right of the screen, which will eventually be joined by a mass PM. If it doesn't materialise early tomorrow then I will be extending the election slightly, with the aim of ensuring that there are at least three days of voting left when the PM is sent out.

    As for why it's not gone out yet, I can't definitively say. (I did give clear notice of the GE to section leaders a few times so I suppose it's to do with the site staff being otherwise occupied this week.)

    Remember to vote in the MHoC Awards, the poll will close at some point in the next week and I'll give you all notice of this the day before.

    Best regards,
    Faland

    Morning all,

    I've been assured that the mass PM for the general election will be sent out either today or tomorrow.

    And you have the rest of today to finish voting in the MHoC Awards!
