    As ever, this result raises questions about the ordering of the manifestos - what with Greens being fairly high up and Libertarians right at the bottom.
    Also Manifestos should all be in the same format, not fair that some take more room than others.

    I think we do have a lot of jelly-brains on our hands :/

    Jelly isn't often vegetarian so I'm not sure whether I can confirm or deny that.
    I do additionally have to question what the **** has happened in previous terms if some of the things they after are on the list (since they are already in force in reality)

    I see a Labour Socialist and Libertarian coalition coming together to keep the party that wants us all living on hippie communes and paying 400% tax on petrol out of power.

    The Green party are very anti civil liberties full of feminist who want to censor the internet and make vacuum cleaners illegal .

    The greens also propose tons of regressive taxes on the working class which the socialist and Labour will oppose.

    Just look at how the greens ruined Brighton
    The libertarians on here would never ally with Labour. They are more akin to right-libertarians and anarcho-capitalists.

    Labour and the Socialists on here arguably have more feminists.

    On here, TSR Labour is further left than the Greens for the most part.

    Libertarians are anti tax and pro civil liberties its in their DNA, unless TSR is very different to real life. Im sure a compromise could be found

    But socialists and Labour have a idealogical heritage of their own whilst the greens dont so more vulnerable to being corrupted by feminism.

    So your saying the greens won because they were the more centrist party ?

    From my facebook feed many young people vote green because its more leftwing than Labour, suggesting thats why TSR Green Party won.

    Well this was the 20th general election we've had and the Greens have never had higher than third. It still does not explain a ~10% rise in the past 6 months on TSR.

    So then the results are in

    Green 13-14 (+7 or +8)
    Labour 9 (-4)
    Conservative 9 (=)
    UKIP 7-8 (+1 or +2)
    Socialist 5 (-2)
    Liberal 5 (+1)
    Libertarian 1 (-2)
    Matthew_Lowson 1 (phew!)

    Many congratulations to the parties which have made gains, namely Greens, Liberals and UKIP. Thanks to the very nice fourteen who voted for me, (lucky to get in really, made it by three votes)

    Now the fun begins

    You're confusing feminism with a absolutely tiny minority of feminists.

    Sure give me a dictionary definition, i judge feminism on its policy positions on current events.
    Feminism will never be about equality of sexes a) it will never happen for biological and cultural reasons( women dont study STEM,more likely to work part time) and b) its about handicapping men so women do better like boardroom quotas its not about equality of gender but female favouritism

    Real life Green Party membership and support have gone way up since the EU elections so could be partly dowm to that, having a good manifesto probably helped us as well

    You did actually win the Euro elections here so that's possible.

    Feminism doesn't mean that we want to be the same as men. That's impossible. Women's bodies (generally speaking) are designed to give birth, men's are not. It's about equal rights, equal choice and equal opportunity. Which does go both ways. Men shouldn't be negatively judged if they want to be a stay-at-home dad. Women shouldn't be automatically disregarded when it comes to manual labour - if they are capable, they deserve equal consideration.

    Many, many women wouldn't want "positive discrimination". That doesn't do anyone any favours. The best person for the job, whether male or female, that should be how it's done.

    And as for the TSR Green Party, I am a member, and a woman, and I wrote a bill to recognise female rape of men, as at the moment, in real life, this isn't recognised under the law. With equal rights comes equal responsibility, including in the court of justice.
