    I see changing parties as a beautiful example of the constructive nature of debate. If people are changing their minds, it means that 1) their minds are open and 2) the arguments against their prior beliefs were well elucidated.

    True, i think that we have 4 of the last 6 prime ministers serving this term.

    Also think that Ham and Cheese led UKIP at some point.

    No worries about me joining the Socialists, those lefty mind control devices don't work on me (i hope).

    For a few months, Ham and Cheese (in the guise of abucha3) led TSR UKIP.

    Government announcement

    I have been notified of a coalition between the TSR Conservative & Unionist party, TSR UKIP party and JPKC. As the coalition holding the largest number of seats, they have formed the Government under 6.1 of the TSR Constitution. I have asked Rakas21 to form a government and he has accepted.

    Parliament is officially open!

    Once again, not to be pedantic , but since UKIP stands for United Kingdom Independence Party, you don't need the word party after TSR UKIP.

    What're the odds that someone in the treasury finds a note saying "Dear chief secretary, I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left"?

    The on I don't get is why Labour never requires the definite article. It's always "Labour does this.", but "The Conservatives do that.", or "The Liberals do that."

    There might be a stockpile of unsubmitted bills! Maybe some were formulated!

    It will be interesting to see if this government can function well with only 40% of the available seats. Even if all members of right wing or central parties (Tories, Libs, Lib Dems JPKC and UKIP) voted in favour of a Government bill, they would only have a majority of 6. Therefore, it needs just three of those to vote against a bill in theory to stop it, quite possible considering the Libertarians and Lib Dems aren't even in the coalition.
