    Do you mean Robbie and Jangra? (the last independents I remember).

    Robbie got a job and so wasn't active and Jangra left the site at some point but was reasonably active during his term.
    Yep those are the two I meant.
    So they just abandoned their seats?

    Although they both got a seat as independents I don't recall them doing a huge deal with it.

    I believe Jangra helped support a few Labour/Socialist Bills and a joint PMB with Adorno and I :holmes:

    If I remember rightly Robbie got the job fairly early on and/or just couldn't be bothered - he's training for a marathon now. Jangra was as active as a vast majority of users I think, it depends if you think that because they are independents they need be more active or not really. I don't remember either doing anything exceptional but I think Jangra was involved in a bill with Adorno and I, and one of his own as well. I hadn't been around very long though so don't quote me on this.

    Neither of them contested their seats in the next election no; Robbie for the same

    Ah fair enough.
    I think if ever I were to leave the TSR Lib Dems (which is very very unlikely) I would not join another party, I would have a go at being independent.

    Jangra was part of 4 bills I can see at a skim, and Robbie one (with Jangra).

    He did one with Robbie, one with Stricof and Adorno, one with myself an Adorno (TLP) and one on his own.

    How many votes does an independent need to get a seat?
    It's done by the d'Hondt method. So the candidate has to get a proportional number of votes to the number of seats there are, in order to attain a seat.

    Basically, because there are 50 seats, an independent needs to get 2% of the total number of votes to gain a seat (100/50 = 2, i.e. every 2% share of the vote = one seat).

    Lol.
    It was Deputy Speaker and this was my manifesto:



    When ever I'm able to, I will allow people to submit whichever bills they want. This extends to such topics as 'free blowjobs for the elderly' and 'every school must have a rugby team'.

    I will provide various sexual favours to members who vote for me and will provide a free sub for all if I win. I will post a video of me trying to backflip off a cow into a pool of the remains of conservative voters - which I of course murdered earlier that day after luring them with promises of 'crumpet'. This ensures they will be fresh.

    I will also provide recently aquired evidence that Adorno is in fact Grant's father, that abucha is I'm so academic's dupe and other stuffs.

    Vote Paddy, because I said so; one vote is victory enough tbh..

    Note: offers subject to change.



    I received four votes, beating two people and drawing with one :holmes:

    Yes you did.

    Judging by your response here i'm guessing it's accidental though

    Edit: I retract that last line based on the below post from WB.
    off topic here but how are you able to see who has left rep for you? I always through it was anonymous lol
