    State Opening of Parliament XXII

    :blow:


    With votes counted :work:, seats assigned :couchpotato:, and top-secret negotiations :ninja: finally over, the general election has now concluded!

    In accordance with Section 6 of the Constitution and Section 1.1 of the Guidance Document:



    The new TSR Government will comprise of a 3-party coalition as follows:
    • TSR Conservative and Unionist Party – 13 seats
    • TSR Liberal Party – 8 seats
    • TSR National Liberal Party - 1 seat


    The role of Official Opposition is to be occupied by:
    • TSR Labour Party – 12 seats


    I hereby formally invite the new coalition to appoint a prime minister and form a government and to then allocate Cabinet positions as they so wish. I similarly ask that the Opposition now form a Shadow Ministry.


    Parliament XXIII
    Normal House business will now resume. :dance:

    Thanks to all who have published or submitted MP lists already. Please can all those who haven't confirm quickly. Please can all current MPs apply to join the user group at their earliest convenience.
    This term will expire on the 26th October 2016.

    Best wishes,
    Ray :awesome:

    Well now I can finally get to the pub and wait for Nigel Farage MEP to resign and UKIP as a whole to throw their toys out of the pram (again).

    Not sure why it is good for a lefty to be seeing a right wing government, other than it being different.

    Congratulations to the new government.

    I imagine this means that the UKIP leader's Machiavellian plan fell through, what a crying shame.

    Last I checked you no longer have to swear the oath, but can make an affirmation instead.
