    Should be interesting to see given that Labour categorically said that JPKC would not be part of their government. Just how much is their word worth?

    I shall spice things up rather vaguely by stating that whilst we regret not being able to include one party, the Conservative Party has approved a coalition agreement by a majority vote of 55% with 11% abstaining.

    Rakas I speak for the whole of The Labour Party honestly when I tell you that we are definitely not going to involve JPKC in any Government discussion, nor even give him a hinting chance of being part of any Government that we're in.

    Yeah, coalition with the Libertarians was mentioned more seriously than with JPKC.

    As my sig shows, it seems Labour are the only party whose views didn't change post-election :cool:

    Anyone else think a one week coalition building period is too long?

    Given the comments about reducing the length of election voting, how would people feel about reducing the coalition building period to 3/4 days?
    I don't think this part has to be changed. People and parties need time to discuss and then vote on things, and parties need a few days at least to vote so as many members of the party as possible can vote.
    I'd say no less than 5 days, certainly, but a week is still good methinks.

    I think a week, or roughly 5 - 6 days, should be adequate.

    That entirely depends on us actually being in government, something which I'm not entirely optimistic about.

    Needless to say, we're focusing on forming a government first - there's every likelihood that if we do get into government, the chancellor could be from another party.

    So that's the high card, give the Lib Dems DL and Chancellor.

    I think its generally accepted that coalition parties take either deputy PM, or CotE - not both, especially when the top parties three times bigger.

    I know exactly what you've offered the Liberal Democrats though Rakas, and it's more than that.

    How do you know what may or may not be offered? also how do you know that it is 100% true without being involved in the talks or inter-party discussion about whom anyone is going with?

    If they're offering that much to the Lib Dems, how much would they offer the Libers, considering they're a bigger party in terms of seats? Seems pretty weird...

    Do you really think its a matter of shiny titles, its not like the real HoC these positions have far less meaning in the MHoC. Blind to power, carry on.

    UKIP's vote had provided a clear and concise decision over the party member's preferences over which coalition they shall be entering. However; it is very likely that I shall remain a backbench MP if this government is ratified.
