    You could form your own. Find five to ten active members, set out some coherent policies and make a positive impact on the forum and then the Speaker could consider a request for a new party.

    That's what I've been considering. Do you think UKIP is the most right wing party presently?

    As long as it's not purposely racist and xenophobic so don't restart the BNP then it might be good to have some right wing debate.

    Difficult to tell because of how we operate. Some of our members would certainly be the most right wing in the House, but that doesn't necessarily mean that we as a party are.

    For you're party to be more economically right wing than the Libers and socially right than UKIP will be tough. Good luck.

    There are some of us who are fairly socially liberal in TSR UKIP.

    Of course not. I hate that being right wing is associated with racism.

    Haha, sorry, I've just seen some people talk about starting the BNP again and that's the only thing further to the right than UKIP on RL but you can make up a party so that would be good to have some right wing debate

    TSR UKIP is far better than their RL alternative, but might be too liberal for you.

    I would say no. All three parties on the right occupy particular political positions and there's even a degree of overlap socially in the Tories with both. Equally we all overlap a little economically although each of us has a core identity.

    Personally i would say that the left is much more cluttered with the Socialists and Labour now almost exactly alike and the Greens being similar although Dayne and Thunder are pretty pragmatic. Really an authoritarian but left party is what the Mhoc needs.

    As i say there is an overlap and each party has a range of members but my opinion...

    Economically: Libertarians>Tories>Ukip (Ukip appear to be moving closer to their RL position when compared to a few terms though here)

    Socially: Ukip>Tories>Libertarian (large spread in the Tories particularly but all three have overlapping members)

    Huh. Mac seemed to think that coalition negotiations were a big deal. Turns out I can do them at nearly 2am without being sober. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to buy another bottle of port and a ticket to Pyongyang. The whole situation should be sorted by wednesday.

    I'm not actually the party leader, and you know as well as I do that Government in the MHoC means little unless you've got the active majority to back it up. The last one did, but it was rare in that.

    Some members have expressed an interest in prior elections so clearly there's at least a couple of members who have being supportive at one time or another.
