    The Nat libs were a ukip project to take votes from the liberals, it was never intended to be successful, it was intended as a puppet

    Is this confirmed or just a rumour?

    To be fair, from what I remember it had nobody with a proven history in the house to take control of it.
    No, I don't believe it did. If another party does form, I hope the Speaker takes into account the number of active MHoC members who want to join and not just the number of TSR members that want to join.

    Maybe I will start one

    I could comfortably compete with any of the other parties on my own, but hopefully some people would join me :moon:

    What do the candidates think of the current range of parties, in particular whether they believe it could be beneficial to have more parties in certain areas, presupposing activity, and would they do anything to help new formation via relaxation of the 10 member guidance if they feel activity would not be an immediate issue?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    If the party trying to form has 5 or 6 active members, I'd be more than likely to give it the all clear (assuming it was broadly in a niche position and all that).

    I'm not going to have parties trying to form that are as active as the Greens or UKIP currently are.

    In terms of niche positions, left-authoritarian, centre authoritarian and right-libertarian.

    I don't want a centre authoritarian party tbh, that's basically be the nazi party and I can't see many supporting that.

    Left authoritarian already flock to the socialists so that's also unlikely.

    Right libertarian; fair enough.

    Personally I think the current set of parties is more or less representative, all we need is a right lib one and possibly a joke party (revival of TSR OMRLP.)

    Would the candidates support the creation of an elected Senate of 14 seats, whereby its members are elected from single-member constituencies using FPTP? This Senate could also act as an amendments committee for the MHoC, where only experienced members (members with x number of posts in the MHoC) can stand in a Senate election, and have the experience to make amendments to bills that have passed in the MHoC. These Senate elections would be mid-term elections, i.e. they are held three months after a general election.
    Whilst I'm in favour of some form of senate or MHoL, it wouldn't be in this way. I'd say 8-10 members at formation in proportion with general election results (with each party getting a minimum of 1 member).

    Alternatively, if I can tweak my system quite a fair bit and get the house on side, we could simulate the elections midterm as well as General Election and by-elections.

    I completely agree with it being experienced members only and an amending chamber. I'm happy to talk to you about this more regardless of the outcome of the election.

    All current MPs, it will be like a normal vote in division.

    I'm not convinced you even need that many at first. History suggests that it only takes one truly active member to ensure a party is relevant in the MHoC. This is especially true if you are a few months out from an election - people are far more likely to join something that already exists. History suggests that one truly able & active member is enough to keep a party relevant :dontknow:
    Those were really only arbitrary numbers I used, but without a doubt I would like to allow smaller parties who have a core of active members!
