    I am ecstatic that we've got not 4, but FIVE seats! That makes us a force to be truly reckoned with in this Parliament.
    LabLibSoc government sounds good...
    Congratulations are certainly in order. I've only seen 4 of you guys at most post around, but I'm confident you'll be able to fill your seats

    I think it would be good too but I'm not sure Petros would be too keen. The only challenge you face now is to fill all five seats.

    Do most MPs post around?

    At least a little bit. I suppose the Socs could always go to their oldies just in case they need a seat filling temporarily

    Great to see a Conservative win.

    Such a close election and many RL factors which could have seriously impacted us Tories.

    As an Irish Republican, shall you be taking your seat?

    Ach filling the seats'll be no bother, we've just about 5 very active members.

    Well Q, all I'm saying is that it'd be a much easier time for Petros & crew with the left than with the right.
    We're the more caring, considerate side, while the right is Father Jack and his brick

    I'm an open minded person. I wouldn't just turn down LabLibSoc automatically. You guys would have to compromise a fair bit on economics though

    Ach sure there's no oath of allegiance, we're grand

    Since this isn't RL Westminster, I think abstention is allowed to be ignored

    Also remember Bernadette Devlin - she took her seat...although she punched a Tory in the face and then said she was only sorry she didn't go for his throat

    Being from a region where two vastly different parties in government compromise on a daily basis I can see how it'd work

    I'm glad to see the socialist rebound this election and I'm glad that they have a larger voice.
    You and me both.

    Bernadette's a top lass - I wish more people would do what she did.

    Labour have been the main governing party too long, we need change and this is our chance.

    The people have delivered their verdict on Labour.

    Congratulations Conservatives, it was a beautiful manifesto, even if I didn't like the content much. If you want to form a government you'll need to be pragmatic to get things passed though.
