    Believe it or not people do have lives and they have to put families in front of a Model House Of Commons. Yes there has been some inactivity from some members but you get that from every party.

    Conservatives MPs I havent seen a lot of:
    meenu89
    tengentoppa
    Krollo
    Helfus


    I was shocked to see these people as MPs as I have never heard of.

    Also on your point about the inactivity of cabinet members. I am the new transport secretary and I have already asked the Government about their stance on HS2. However, I dont think this Government wants it to go ahead, so I wont post a bill on it. Just because you dont see members on the main forum dosent mean they arent working behind the scenes.
    I'm fairly sure I did something, at some point.

    Seriously though, I prefer to focus on insightful responses when I have the time as opposed to commenting on everything with a fairly pointless 'aye' or 'nay'.

    Thats fine, I actually support you. However, your party believes that the Government has to be online 24/7 and produce 10 bills a day

    These are not helping your case. If I'm convinced to have no confidence in Labour or the Liberals, and if I have to consider also all the possibilities of all the Labour/Liberal-involved coalitions, there's just no way I can logically vote aye.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve here.
    Personally I would say the most likely outcome is going to be con kip with a possibility of the greens or socialists joining the current coalition, something I'm really not to certain about.

    This assumes the Motion will pass, which seems unlikely

    No offence mate but there are very few parties who would want to go into a coalition with you.
    Gimme a T, gimme an O, gimme an R, gimme an I, gimme an E, gimme an S.

    When the most senior person in a party is its chairman because the other leaders are away, I expect the chairman to start making decisions, or call VoNCs against the leaders who are away when the leaders have been away for more than three days. I admire your aim to not upset anyone but this is politics, in politics people need to make cut-throat decisions or things do not get done.
    3 days is a little harsh, don't you think? That's not a time long enough to impact on a party's performance or the direction that it's going in. I've had my internet go down for three days a couple of times due to storms - if that happened to a leader it wouldn't be an indication that they were unfit to lead, it would just be a case of temporary unfortunate circumstances. A week would be my minimum limit.

    I know, but at the moment the success of the right-wing on TSR hinges on the relationship between the two right-wing parties. If the Conservatives, or UKIP start working against each other there will be no right wing policies to pass, as the lack of turnout from the left-wing will not be great enough to overcome.

    You have forgotten the other habit that the left-wing dominate, that is quoting someone but saying 'hear, hear', or 'PRSOM.'

    And it won't exist, really, either, given that Labour, the largest left-wing party, has a 95% turnout as of the latest voting review, both Socs always vote and the Greens tend to be pretty good as well.

    Under normal circumstances there would be an argument for seven days but when in a coalition where the leadership of two of the three parties in the coalition are absent, or seem to have been kept out of coalition discussions, action needs to be taken to keep things going. The coalition spent 22 days with lots of people wanting to ask questions, Adam wanting to discuss things about the coalition, Aph wanting to discuss things, but none of that happening because a chairman would not start appointing new people, nor would the deputy leader call a VoNC against the leader who was the Prime Minister; I would be surprised if you find that delay acceptable.

    It has been poor turnout from the left-wing that has led to flagship policies of Labour coming close to being repealed, or amendments to them being rejected.

    Which is why you agree a line of succession for each party and for the coalition as a whole at the start of the coalition, and have a document accessible to everyone (ideally the coalition agreement itself) with said line of succession written down.

    Agreed, but previous chairs didn't remind people to vote as often as I do.

    Guys, whether this passes or not, we all know that you suck (incompetent or lazy, doesn't matter, because your earlier predecessors were much better) and whether you choose to admit it or not, I hope you realise this, otherwise you have bigger problems to worry about.

    Sometimes things just don't work out and people must suck it up (I mean us, due to how unaware users vote) – fortunately for myself, this only happens here on TSR so it's fairly easy to get over, although admittedly frustrating at times. However, my motivation to play with you in this environment has been on a steady decline and soon to hit the minimum and if I'm not alone, perhaps you should think about how stubborn you really want to be because if other people get tired and leave, you'll have no satisfaction and no opposition, as if playing Monopoly with all the money…

    Please expand. In what way have they 'lost the plot'. Because, as far as I'm concerned, the government is working very well.
    Inactivity, majority government not passing laws because of infighting. Things were better under lib/UKIP/Green

    You have misread the sentence, the struggle was down to Aph not calling a VoNC in the Green leader, the lack a budget was your doing.
