    I mean, I can pretty much guess LP's policy stance on any given matter, can't you?
    Then you have no need for the questions in the first place.

    There is also the 'ask the government' thread which does the same job...

    Clearly you did not need any government policy announcements

    My guess is yay, so long as we can form an intergalactic empire, and yay, provided it's done by the private sector with minimal safety regulations, respectively.

    That's far too simplistic and flippant to be considered correct, but at least it is funny.

    Mr Speaker, with the PM and your agreement I'd like to request an extension on PMQs - 4pm is far to early to end the parliamentary day and the PM deserves the opportunity to answer as many of my and my colleagues sparklingly witty and relevant questions as possible.
    I am happy to re-open the thread until tomorrow, however it is at the PM's discretion whether he wishes to answer further questions.

    I think this is fair.

    Petitions Hansard is now updated.

    (Or rather it was for a few hours, but further necessary changes will be saved for an August update.)

    XXII also had the LUG government.
    Also can you update the GD/constitution? Things like opposition coalition amendment from 2 years ago hasn't been added.

    No, that was XXI. XXII was the second Lib-Lab coalition.

    I think the constitution and GD are a bit of a general mess, so if you could point out to me any amendments that haven't been added and I will add them.

    I'll probably look it up.

    It's actually not as bad as I thought, having just gone through all the passed amendment in this era there were only 3 not properly enacted, detailed here. One is a superficial change, one is opposition coalitions but the last is an MHoC earthquake which dispite passing and never being repealed was never brought into force but has a massive effect on the game.

    VA68 is very interesting, because it could be used to argue that there is currently no government.

    Wow, yes, I'll have a look at that, though at first glance it doesn't seem quite as shocking as that.

    Indeed, I'd agree with that assessment.

    It could be used to argue that the labour only government in XXI and the current government are illegitimate so it's definitely shocking. But I do like drama.

    It's a similar thing. They were removed from existence which means that their membership of the government was withdrawn.

    Given it wasn't actually in the Constitution as presented at that time then I would suggest not.
