    Evening Parliamentarians,

    We've got plenty of glorious things! :tea:

    Tonight I present to you the VOTING REVIEW. I understand that several members wanted to see this out earlier and I apologise for their having to wait. To make up for it I have endeavoured to produce the greatest voting review in history... Ok not quite that good. But I have numbered the seats from 1-50 so from now on the voting percentage of the seat not the sitting MP will be measured. Slackers beware! I will be contacted Party Leaders/Chairs to explain the new system which I think will be of great benefit to this House.

    Voting Review XXIII
    You can now vote on your Member of the Month for January 2016!
    The result for VA123 is in.
    B911 has gone to Division.

    Best,
    Ray :zomg:

    Voting Review XXXIII
    The following seats have - 70% turnout and are now highlighted for removal:

    Seat 8 (10%) - Conservative Party (currently held by Moleman1996)
    Seat 15 (30%) - Green Party (currently held by Kyx)
    Seat 35 (50%) - Liberal Party (currently held by toronto353)
