    Hello Ladies & Gents, Jordan is the name, Tory is the party. I'm from Milton Keynes, under the South constituency, I enjoy politics, debating, economics, boxing, cricket, football... I enjoy a lot of sport to say the least. I'm an alright fan of school and I'm deferring entry for a year with a hope to going to University in 2015. *Tips hat*

    Bloody hard choice seeing as both are reknowned for cutting corners and lying.

    I have just found that I am the second most senior MP (since the 12th parliament). I can hardly believe that three years have passed since then.

    He has been an MP since May 2010 (myself since October 2010). Other interesting statistical data can be found here (cheers to those who keep the wiki updated).

    Drat! I knew my couple of months' sabbatical from being an MP was a bad move! Should have just stayed on in the background! Though that wouldn't exactly have been fair to other more active members of the party who wanted to become an MP!

    Congrats, btw!

    I'm native to the 14th parliament myself, I think there are quite a lot of us XIVers still around actually.

    It's exactly two years (give or take a week) since I made my first proper move in trying to become a part of the MHoC. I ran in the Tory leadership race to replace Indievertigo despite the fact that I'd made about four posts in the Tory forum at that point and none in the MHoC itself. I beat TehFrance though :cool: I mainly used it as a way of breaking into the community, I felt intimidated by it before that, felt like I sort of had to do something interesting to get a foothold. I remember sitting in a Computing lesson answering a bucket load of questions in the Q&A thread like it was yesterday. Good times. Scary to think it's gone so fast. From that day onwards my teacher would call me "Tory Boy". It was there that a sort-of friend discovered my interest in the MHoC and in the future told my further maths teacher, leading them to spend the entire lesson going through all of my posts on the whiteboard, but I think I've told that story before somewhere on here.

    I became an MP a couple of months later, about half way through XIV, and not long after that I tried to become the leader again (but lost to Rakas) and a couple of weeks after that I ran for deputy and finally won.

    A funny parallel/coincidence is that the first thing I did in this place was to stand in the Labour leadership election that was held to replace Dayne. And I can't think of anything worse happening, I'd have died had I been in your position!

    Ooh, never realised that happened, I only remember you falling out with them after the first by-election - I'll have to trawl through our subforum to read up on this

    Go for it. Though bear in mind my contributions to this place during that period could be described as being purposefully inflammatory, and/or stupid. (As opposed to nowadays, where they're just accidentally inflammatory, and/or stupid...)

    I knew that much Pretty funny to look back on though, how things change. All I can say is that in the end, the Socialists were very lucky they took a risk on you! I think you must have been writing 80% of the Bills for a good few months :lol:

    Chuffin' 'eck! Is it really 2 years?! I can remember both those elections like they were yesterday!!
    I remember thinking 'who's this running with virtually no experience whatsoever?!' And then a week or so later thinking - 'blimey, he handled that election really well - the force is strong in this one!' Similar thing happened with Moleman (though obviously not the same election etc). Couple of others too, but they disappeared after a while.

    Was definitely good to see you become deputy eventually! And probably best that you took that step first rather than being launched straight into leadership!
