    What Rakas said . No problem.

    The TSR Tories are certainly more liberal on the whole but economically we're as far right as you'd expect.
    It's a deal then. We will borrow your most right-wing people please. Bun should have a say but I haven't seen him around today, nor yesterday come to think of it so it can be done behind his back

    Ah okay. You're all Kenneth Clarke's then. I always thought so.... :rofl:

    Under the correct leadership UKIP can start to succeed again. With bun as our leader and a deputy leader to be appointed soon hopefully we will be back on track ASAP

    It's been a week and we don't have a deputy leader, party direction and still have ten pages of clutter. It's not good enough. Where is Bun these days anyway?

    To be honest, I hardly remember the mock EU election. Totally meaningless. We need to make sure that elections are big events in the house calendar, rather than having one every 5 minutes.
    I agree and limiting the number of MPs might also reduce by-elections taking us back to elections being big events.

    So we're holding a by-election for one seat, to replace an MP who it would seem never took his seat. What's the problem folks?

    Since their not dual members and we have our by-election candidate it doesn't really matter how far right they are if they vote for your bills. If he's not back tomorrow I'll get onto it with Qwertish though I suppose LP has the administrative power (I don't as I chose not to keep a position in the leadership when I departed office).

    Not really. More an economically component Osbourne or non corrupt Hunt. Though we do have a large spread.

    True, but it's so much nicer to start drawing something up and not having someone even mildly left-leaning interfering trying to water it down. The watering down comes after the main principle has been communicated. Haha. Cheers

    There are such a wide range of Tory members, you would most probably not be happy with me (quite central), but there are certainly members which agree with the vast majority of UKIP policies. However the way Rakas suggested is the quickest, smoothest and most effective method of doing it.

    Did you get my PM? Who is your leader I should see about that?

    We are a tolerant bunch. We just prefer more closely minded people The basis we work on is "no one is ever wrong, they are just think differently."

    Obiejess has gone quiet recently, will try and see what she says. James222 is a fairly new member, so he does deserve a bit of slack. Couple of members on 50% isn't ideal either.

    Obviously it depends how your party is doing, but I agree with Mechie that these constant elections are probably a big reason why many members lose interest.

      This house can be improved by having cross party boards and committees for things. Have a stronger like with MUN too. Negotiations with American college websites to implement a similar thing with Congress could work. Imagine that, international virtual politics It's either extremely sad or extremely brilliant.

        Please God, no more committees. They honestly don't work on here.

        This is the third election we've had this term - the GE, the mock EU election and this by-election. We definitely need to find a solution to this because you're right, these constant elections are why people are losing interest.

        Surely he's told you though? Perhaps Jarred could sort it out while he's away?

        EDIT: Scrap that. I thought that it was strange that he'd not said anything. I've seen him lurking in the forum.

        How about instead of blaming anything and everything, pinpoint specific things. Then use evidence, if there is no evidence, then collect it.

        As someone who is very reform-minded, I'm surprised that you're not actually helping us to build a consensus for reform.

        I have proposed my ideas for voting reviews. However since we are so focused on fixing problems. I would like to see if anybody has any idea where it specifically comes from, then we can address that one specific thing. Improving and fixing are two very different thing. So far I have focused on improving, and you are talking about fixing.
