    And the results:

    TSR Labour Party: 301 votes (28.1%) - 14 seats
    TSR Conservative Party: 285 votes (26.6%) - 14 seats
    TSR Libertarian Party: 125 votes (11.7%) - 6 seats
    TSR Socialist Party: 116 votes (10.8%) - 5 seats
    TSR Liberal Democrats: 99 votes (9.2%) - 4 seats
    TSR Centre Party: 82 votes (7.7%) - 4 seats
    TSR UKIP: 63 votes (5.9%) - 3 seats

    What happens now?

    Parties have 7 days to form coalitions.

    You have until 9pm on Monday 18th April to form coalitions and present them to me. The party or coalition with the highest number of seats will form the Government and parliament will open. If there is a tie, it will form according to the Constitution:

    In the event of a tie in the number of seats, which party or coalition forms the Government shall be decided by, in order (moving to the next one if tied), the highest number of votes in the preceding election, the lowest number of parties in the coalition, the highest number of seats in a single party in a coalition, and the highest number of votes in a single party in a coalition. If these are all equal, there is no government.
    Party Leaders need to send me their list of MP's ASAP. No MP's will be admitted into the usergroup until I have received a list from the party leader.

    The Coalition negotiations are going to be interesting. It will be very close either way at the moment.

    A fantastic turnout - the best ever I think. Unfortunately, the TSR Liberal Democrats have felt the effects of RL influence over the TSR election. We may be smaller in number but by no means in spirit.

    The coalition negotiations will be really interesting.

    Me too. I'm an optimist by nature but it's such a shame to have lost so many good MPs and members in a year. This isn't the end though but we as a party should have a strategic review of where we head from here.

    Wow, well done Libertarians.

    Not a bad result for the Conservatives at all, given our RL counterpart's popularity. The talks will be interesting...

    How can we possibly have a discussion without the usual excellent graphical representation of the composition of the new House?

    It's just how the voting goes. I think you alienated real life Lib Dem voters, those who still voted Lib Dem, by having a non RL Lib Dem manifesto and many people just won't vote Lib Dem now after the tuition fees thing. It's a sad result for you guys, but it's how it goes.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
