This reduces the number of people needed for a new party from 10 to 5?

Why would a UKIP member promote that? There's not going to be some defections to the TSR Veritas Party (or whatever Robert Kilroy-Silk's group was called), is there?

I'm awaiting confirmation on a few names and will get them up as soon as I have them available.

I'm not too sure, but the last thing this place needs is the instability of a new party forming and flopping every term or two.

Why?

I don't think forming new parties should be particularly easy.

I would have preferred that you get confirmation first but that's your choise.

Can you confirm that the GD section is complete as it looks to be missing a part.

We have had people post in the MP thread asking to create a party but not participating; making it easier to start a party will attract those members who may have an idea for a party.

Anyway on to the debate, although I'd like it to be easy to set up new parties I belive that the 10 limit was decided with the CT and that the CT wouldn't be likely to aprove a new sub-forum without tge 10 people.

If these people can't even find 9 people who agree with the principles of their new party then what's the point? If they can't find 9 sup[porters then how are they going to get enough votes to survive?

I'd suggest that they could form a grouping or something without a subforum and stand as independents in elections and by-elections

The CT managed to make a subforum for aston villa supporters, they'd be able to make one for the TSR BUF or whatever would be created from this amendment.

I think there's a few more Villa fans though I mean, not many, but a few.

If someone was attempting to set up the Greens or the Socialists it is unlikely the person attempting to set up the party would find enough members willing to second the petition calling for the new party. The CT agreeing or disagreeing will always be part of something like this but I think the Crisis Committee forum could be acquired as a party for a forum as the CC is not doing anything.
