      Well done all. Especially glad to see the Libertarians beating Ukip (like you both but the Libertarians are finally on the up) and also glad to see tehFrance beating the 24% floor.

      Why are you glad to see the Libertarians beating UKIP? Is there some bad blood between us that i am unaware of.

      Libertarians used to be a very active intellectual party, and it is nice to hear hat perspective again. also the Tories are in direct opposition to UKIP (for votes), but not to much so with the Libertarians.

      Thanks for clearing that up. As long as there is no personal confrontation between us. Seeing as we share seats i thought there wouldn't be rivalry. However you should be wise to keep us on your good side. If this by-election is an example to us all, it shows that the government backed candidate will always win - we don't want to lose the seats to them and neither do you.

      Just personal preference. While Bun will succeed im sure, Ukip as yet have kind of glossed over their internal issues so while I'm sure you have a bright future here I'd rather the Libertarians were rewarded with avoiding last place because Lobster has appeared to be slowly moving forward in getting the party moving.

      Ok. Bun has been on holiday for a week and a bit now and we are coping well. We have a few bills and motions in the works and internal elections have been going well. I think we will move forward now considering that the old UKIP folk have been removed from the party. We are going to build up from a clean slate that is wiped free from the stench of the past.

      We've not been in competition with them so much recently because they've moderated away from their traditional anarcho-capitalist position here and we are reasonably liberal. Ukip have an RL advantage in publicity over the Libertarians as well which matters a lot at the general election.

      Not only do we share seats, but we share leaders. However as for keeping on each other's good sides, that wasn't helped by UKIP running with no realistic chance of even running up.

      Hope you do. Ukip were great allies until the TNP debacle and ensuing decline.

      Bun was one of the original co-creators of UKIP was he not? I achieved 5 votes and wanted to contest an election. You still wouldn't have won. If you were so desperate to win this seat then you should have made a pact with your opposition partner - just as the government did.

      Care to explain to me via PM what this debacle was. I do hope we can become strong allies again.

      Perhaps an argument for by-elections to use a multi-step voting system.
