    The link in mine doesn't work, and it sort of makes it sound like it's an FPTP election by asking that we "Vote for who we want to win!". There can be more than one winner. :indiff:

    That's lucky, I've had it twice now.

    I voted for Labour - despite the pacifist foreign policy line. I nearly voted for the Bepe Grillo wannabe though.

    I must admit I had absolutely no idea this whole mock-political set-up even existed. It's very impressive.

    I don't know if I'm reading to much into this but the rules post says "The D&CA moderation team believes that the MHoC is an excellent way for users to get involved with structured and formal debates as well as to become better acquainted with the workings of the British system of parliamentary democracy." The D&CA moderation team. What about TSR Staff, are they anti-MHoC? Or I am I just reading too much into this?
    The TSR staff I met certainly were not anti-MHoC

    What would be more interesting would be to see the vote breakdown before and after the mass PM, and see if it creates a swing in any particular direction. (My prediction: swing towards the RL named parties)

    Many thanks comrade, feel free to join the party, we're a welcoming bunch

    On a side note, 265 already, guess the mass PM really does have an effect.

    Interesting use of 'the world' given that you voted for a party prepared to steal from foreign pensioners to achieve its ends. (In the last term the Lab/Soc government introduced a bill which stole billions of pounds worth of assets from the canadian state pension fund and others, and then voted down a Libertarian party bill to compensate them)

    By the way, this may have come across as me having a go at you, which is not the intention. I'm just trying to make people aware of what they're voting for.

    The PM has worked wonders for turnout. Hopefully we can attract some of those voting to take part in the HOC itself.

    Ah, **** it I'm voting Socialist. In real life I wouldn't vote but an opportunity to annoy right-winged people is something I just can't pass up.
