    What?!

    Whats your election turn out?

    Is it not my democratic right to be able to vote from day 1?
    It's nothing to do with us. It's TSR policy to block members who don't meet those requirements from voting in any and all polls on the site.

    That's a really inconvenient rule in a lot of instances. I've just been elected an MP for the Green Party (talk about bad timing!) but I don't think I can vote on the remaining bills in the Division Lobby, nor even vote in the election.

    It is a pain. It's probably an anti-spam measure though... Perhaps you could ask Jarred to add your vote to Bills in the Division Lobby?

      Hmmm. Interesting...

      Whichever party outlines the most libertarian platform will doubtless win my vote.
      that's likely to be us, the Libertarian Party

        And may the odds be ever in your favour!
        We should definitely have a "TSR MHoC Hunger Games" and have 2 tributes from each party

        The Socialists would lose every time though obviously :sexface:

        Because we wouldn't put forward tributes because we'd refuse to fight in a battle designed by the rich to kill the poor :sexface:

          Hold on- shouldn't libertarians be offended by a big government telling them to fight for their life?

            No this is a tyrannical co-operative whereby we all agree to offer tributes, not dictated to by a central authority

            Someone could use that to justify the need for TSR BNP—we would need the villains from District 2!

              It wouldn't be BNP in District 2, they're meant to be successful!

              Libers would be District 12 because of the underground free market

              Not when Catnip slays them like pigs! I have always thought about District 2 as of those who were most hated. UKIP would be District 13! :cool:

                Would bang Catnip. Ahaha I suppose so, they are along with the capitol, "the enemy". Ahh yes of course, because they organise the slaughter of children in order to end a war :/

                Well that was out of the blue
                (Original post by Birchington)
                Unexpectedly early! Any reasons for bringing this forward?
                Glad i could surprise you. The primary reason for it was the opportunity that the Libertarian withdrawal presented as it's fairly late in the term. While we can happily continue to govern the fact is that the left are pretty strong here and so it presented an opportunity to strengthen our mandate, The secondary reasons for me personally were also that the Greens were very active and may take seats from the more extreme socialists and also that Labour was holding a leadership election and still recovering from their bad turn of luck with activity months ago,

                As such we discussed it last weekend, made the decision, notified TNP and then requested that parliament be dissolved on Thursday which as there was a slight delay was called yesterday.

                ..........

                In regards to Ad Hoc is there any chance of an issue in the next week or so as an election will be the perfect opportunity.

                It's been as high as 1000, the mods send out a mass PM.

                I believe your aloud to PM the speaker your vote and he adds it to the end total.

                I seem to recall you popping into the election thread last time or the time before saying that you voted Libertarian, could be wrong though.

                Seems like a smart move Prime Minister. We should have seen it coming when the tea party left the government

                I might have tbh, I can't really remember. I've voted in so many polls on TSR that I don't really remember them all!

                If I have voted in one before, I can't imagine it would've been for any party other than libertarian.

                Thanks. A lot of people just like the debate but i do like the competitive aspect to the game.

                Ha. Truth be told the Tea Party element is very small in the Mhoc and more likely to be in Ukip (though they are pretty sane as a party) since the libertarians don't like uber social conservatism as you see in the US tea party. There are some really extreme libertarians but they are a completely different breed to the Tea Party.

                I think the fact that we have PR, are students in a country that is increasingly socially European and have moderate leaders in all 3 parties probably explains this.
