i thought they were all announced together, well I guess UKIP will be first.

and then you had even more leaders then us that term and more right

Do.
If their appointed then it can obviously be quick but not all parties even announce when parliament starts because internal elections may be ongoing (there's no divisions for over a week anyway).

We both changed leaders once. Regardless, your party has taken some very extreme positions this term.

Seemingly so, although if one has been agreed, I don't see why it could not be announced earlier than the deadline...
Coalitions are announced by the speaker - it would be stupid to tell the House before the deadline because the other party could use that information to their advantage.

MP's are what parties can announce when they like.

Wow, that's impressive. Well let's hope that LP can last that long, unless you wish the return to the reigns that is...

With the seat distribution and minimum coalition requirement (not happy about that), it's clear that Labour have 2 options and the Tories only 1. In all likelyhood it will come down to whether GP culled the Orange Bookers or whether they will move from the shadows and once again deliver the party to their Tory overlords (i of course mean wonderful friends).

That said i'm not actually involved in this set of negotiations so for once it's pure speculation and there are other less likely options.
What Orange Bookers? Are there actually any left?

You are right with this statement. The MPs have been announced on our sub-forum and it is over to Adam to announce them to the house. There are two changes from last term with UKIP72 and Sdotd being replacing by newer, more active members.

Interestingly i have been looking at the scale of Labour's challenge in 2020 to achieve a majority and since WW2 only in 1945, 1997 and 2010 has an opposition added more than 90 new seats.

Yes, Joe replaced Nebelbon about 4 weeks ago when the Sale of Meat and Animal Products Bill 2015 was up for voting in the division lobby.

There was not an announcement to be had as originally Joe was covering for Nebelbon while he was on holiday, but when Nebelbon returned Joe kept the MP role.

Anyone else terrified and incensed by the things this government is planning? Scrapping the Human Rights Act, ending the hunting ban, further cuts to the welfare budget, probable support for TTIP, brutal policies against Mediterranean migrants... the list goes on.
