Thanks for this thread!
I was just thinking recently, there is no party that represents me in today's politics (a socially conservative one, and an economically left wing one), although I support the Labour Party. If a party like this existed, I would definitely vote for it!

That's fantastic, obviously we would need 10 members to join. If you are interested in joining then give me a quote or PM and I'll add you to the list

Are you interested in joining this party (if it forms) in the MHoC?

The MHoC is TSR's very own model parliament. We're first and foremost a debating club, but we like to pretend that we are actually running the country as we debate, so we divide ourselves up into seven political parties, have elections every six months to elect 50 MPs and form a government and an opposition.

People from all over the site and all over the political spectrum come together to create their own policies and ideas in the form of bills, motions and petitions for how the country should be run. The TSR community then discusses and debates these ideas, and finally the proposals are voted on.

This Party already exists, it's called the TSR (Fake) Tory Party.

I jest of course, best of luck to Hazzer in setting this up, although I won't be joining, as I'm neither left wing nor socially conservative!

Honestly, I don't feel like any of these policies are incompatible with the existing Labour Party. Heck, the devil's obviously in the detail but I'd broadly agree with all of them - as, presumably, does SoggyCabages who also already serves us with distinction as an MP. I'm all for a diverse set of MHoC parties but I'm not convinced this is going to be sufficiently differentiated from Labour considering they're already flexible - perhaps more so than ever - on social issues.

Blue Labour?

Oh my goodness, it's like my wet dream. Shame Labour already accommodates us. This is just another pipe dream for you to become a party leader until they VoNC you, if you even have a constitution.

That's not my call to make. What I can say with some confidence though is that if he wasn't, it wouldn't be because of his support of any policy you've mentioned.

What kind of views do you have in mind when you say socially conservative?

I'm getting quite sick of the same users trying to set up various parties.

I'm probably of the opinion that if the same user tries to found more than one party then later attempts should be automatically blocked.

Also the name is not appropriate given we already have a Labour Party, nor am I convinced the ideology is sufficiently distinct from other parties' offerings.

Traditionalist values I guess,
Anti-Abortion, Not really that keen on gay marriage, against euthanasia.
Fair enough If that was the general direction of this party I could see more of a use for it, but if that's going to be the appeal I think it should be explicit in the OP. There's a big, big difference between reducing immigration/not being keen on globalisation and wanting to significantly increase the role of the state in regulating personal lives.

If you want to get involved in the Model House of Commons then you'd be better of joining the TSR Labour Party - the largest party in the House and the leader of the current coalition government - than standing with a guy who is trying to start a new party because he got kicked out of the TSR Liberals and isn't confident any other party would let him in.

What party did hazzer try to start?

I'm surprised that the usual opposition to parties has not been used, the nat libs was the name of that party appropriate seeing as we already had a liberal party?

If your comment was because of my involvement I will point you to what I said months ago "I would be willing to dual if my party leader is ok with it to help you write a party constitution and get everything set up" that is an offer I intend to make to every party and I have made to hazzer
