    Our manifesto and Nebelbon's post on I think post 6 of this thread
    Well obviously I know I can find it there


    What I meant was without just reciting the "if elected we'll try to this blah blah blah" Can you sum up why someone should vote UKIP rather than the other parties. Why is voting for you a better choice than voting for the other parties.

    Think of it like this, in a closing speech in a Leaders Debate, what would you say?

    And that goes for all the leaders

    Without referring me to your manifestos and saying you'll do x y z if you're elected, why should someone vote for your party over the others?

    That's what manifestos are for. How many people from TSR are going to read through 50 odd pages?

    There are only 29 pages. And I went through the entire thread before casting my vote .

    Well, I hadn't been active on TSR since... February, I think. A lot could have changed in that time. Still not sure about the whole abolition of the Monarchy thing, for example. So, I wanted to make sure that I voted for the party that's most in line with my own views. It was a close call between the Greens and the Liberals.

    Most Greens and Liberals were in favour of the Abolition of the Monarchy bill weren't they?

    Not sure, really. I've only returned a few days ago, when the election had already started. Doesn't seem like the Liberals were, but from the manifestos it looks like the Greens, Labour and the Socialists were in favour.

    Was quite surprised to find poor old Liz kicked to the curb!

    I think only UKIP and the Tories were untied in opposing the bill. I'm still hugely disappointed that the government felt justified in what they did.

    I'm not a flag-waving Royalist, but I do feel that a move of such importance should be put to a referendum.

    I do like the Greens' animal rights and environmental agenda, though, as well as the abolition of tuition fees. I also like the Liberals' idea of legally binding referendums, the abolition of secret courts, a greater right to privacy and the introduction of a Bill of Rights.

    Your party has some good ideas as well - I like the investment in education, the move to close loopholes in corporation tax, the removal of air passenger duty and the aim to make life a bit easier for people on lower incomes.

    The reason it was done was because they'd got 26 and they didn't know whether there would be a different chance.

    They've convinced me that for the game on here a President would be a good idea, but I think it must go to a referendum as there's always going to be doubt surrounding how long it will last.

    Don't know whether this was deleted (for some reason the some of what I thought were binned posts are showing in the thread on my phone) but how would you respond to fixing the mass PM into the rules? I.e a 7 day period with a 10 day max poll to account for a mass PM
