    Hi, I would like to take part in the model house of commons. Are there any parties which generally are economically right ( free market economics/classical) but socially left wing ( supporters of gay marriage, dedication to promoting a more equal society etc).

    All parties on TSR tend to be pretty socially liberal. The Tories were the party to introduce gay marriage legislation, I believe. Not all of us are economically right, though. You'd probably be most comfortable in the Conservatives, Libertarians or Liberals. Take a look at the party descriptions here for a better picture, and when you've made your choice, you can join a party here. Good luck!

    They can still contribute to debates and to the internal affairs of whichever party they choose.

    Join the Libertarians! We are more socially right wing than most parties but very socially liberal. One of our main goals is protection the liberty of the individual and their rights to live in anyway they choose so long as it does not affect the rights of others.

    Pm me if you'd like to talk more!

    I don't think anyone in MHoC would disagree with a platitude like that!

    Plus shooting poor people.

    I joke. I think there's a far greater emphasis on it in our party than, say, the socialists. I'd like to see the Libers become more right wing economically. Perhaps not quite so far as shooting the poor

    Yes, you sound like a Tory.

    So long as the party leaders are aware, yes.

    If you apply to multiple parties, you have to get the Speaker's consent as well. I don't think the constitution allows you to be a member of more than two, either.

    A person doesn't have to be an MP to be involved. If that were the case things would move a lot slower around here. We're trying to encourage more people to get involved even if they are not an MP. That would mean more activity and hopefully it would also mean more competition and selection for MP seats.

    I just meant that it would have been better timing and more engaging if he has joined a few days earlier.
