    I think we’ve got a very solid cabinet on our hands here. I hope the house looks forward to seeing what we produce over the next three months

    Any comments on the defence secretary wanting to over throw the liber leaders and take over the party?

    The coalition government only has 17 or so seats in Parliament which is 34%? How on earth can you form a government with these numbers?
    Eh 18 seats from Monday onwards... any other reasonable coalition would not have beat it. And I don’t think Labour and the Socs have fully mended their relationship.

    With off-site questions about Connor's integrity swirling, there may be more drama yet to come this evening.
    We may be due an explosive evening depending on how things play out. For now, no further comment from me.

    The Prime Minister should be answering that. PetrosAC

    Why are you appointing people to pointless titles? Are you trying to accommodate for special people?

    My right honourable friend would do well to stop insulting members of the party, especially those that I am friends with.

    Someone has to be responsible for the administration of the Duchy.

    I look forward to fulfilling my brief, sentiments shared by every other Minister that has been announced today.

    Afc is hardly "remaining on the backbenches" if he's taking a (pointless) role.

    Incorrect, governments frequently formed with 18/19 seats in the MHOC’s early days, I also believe that the LUG coalition of Parliament 20 had the same number of seats as us.

    Statement from Rt Hon Connor27 MP, Secretary of State for Defence

    I would like to make a statement on the allegations that are spreading on offsite communications via Jammy Duel, Jacob E and Joep95.

    The individuals in question are bitter at my decision to abandon the Anti-federalist League proposal in order to join the government, and have decided to leak various offsite conversations that I’ve had with them, collectively and individually, into the public domain.

    Some of these allegations are indeed true, for instance I told them that the Liberals wouldn’t accept me being in both the AFL and the Government simultaneously, and that I initially didn’t trust Saunders16’s offer of reconciliation after I returned from my ban.

    However, the members in question have also used inspect element to doctor additional bits onto these messages, creating the impression that my reformed persona is not sincere and that I am planning to rejoin the Libertarians as part of a malicious plot to oust CatusStarbright as leader (someone who I trust and admire immensely and whom is a good friend); these malicious and disgusting smears are their attempt to topple this government as retribution for what they perceive to be me “selling out” them and the AFL.

    I would urge the house to reject these baseless lies and ignore the members in question as they seek to propagate them.

    The Model BBC does not endorse either side of the argument between Connor and others. I hope Connor decides to take his statement to the Ask the Government thread once it is created.

    Just thought I'd maintain the stereotype that Liberals chase and value meaningless titles

    I'm not sure that LUG is what you ought to be looking at for a positive comparison.

    I agree, but the idea that we are the smallest government in MHOC history is visibly false.
