    I’m glad my speech upon the formation of the previous government was motivating - because it sounds quite similar in some parts with some words changed and moved around....

    The Liberals are in government again which is interesting because they rejected a similar coalition to this a couple of months ago. I wonder how many concessions they gave away just to make sure they remain in government. Seems like a lot, I assume Connor is DPM.

    Looks like a bit of digging through threads is in order.
    I can give you the short version (I looked up those threads recently). Our constitution at the time said that a coalition could be formed from any number of parties, but that whole section had recently been replaced and the coalition part now just said that a coalition would form 'as normal.

    I led a coalition of liberals, labour and socialists with me as PM. The ConLiber coalition claimed that a three party coalition was now unconstitutional as the section saying a coalition could form from as many parties as wanted had been removed.

    The tories kicked up such a stink that the speaker declared there wasn't going to be a government, despite the story leader admitting that he was getting members to kick off about it to block us even though he thought multi-party coalitions were constitutional.

    Our coalition continued regardless and I simply acted as PM until I left to take over as speaker near the end of the term.

    Not that I didn't know that this was happening already, but it's still interesting to see, particularly on whether the two parties are all that distinguishable after a few months together...

    You'll find out if it happens. Not sure it will though.
    That we're a party of diverse political views, and that we won't outright refuse to work with certain parties.
    Unlikely given that Connor's involvement was probably fake from the start, Vit has opted for the "Who knows what we believe in" party, and Jacob is banned for the time being.

    This just about confirms that the Liberals are a right pile of snakes.
    Liberals going into Government with the party closest to us makes us snakes?

    Interesting...

    No... Catus is Deputy Prime minister. As I’ve said, you’ll see the first glance of the nature of this government with the cabinet announcements tomorrow. I won’t comment on how similar this is to the previous announcement a couple months ago, because I frankly don’t remember.

    To be honest with you, I did use your speech as inspiration so I thank you for that. You're a better speech writer than I'll ever be

    Catus will be DPM and my party (as the Libbers and Connor are) is happy with our policy agreement.

    Would you like some pepper with all that salt? Mr Leader of a irrelevant unofficial opposition party.

    I would urge all members from both sides to listen to my right honourable friend the Prime Minister, and bring the petty arguments with people to an end, and creating a less toxic atmosphere within the house.

    Ummm, why would the independent be DPM and not the leader of the second party? I don't remember T being your DPM.

    It is with much delight that I am able to say that I look forward to working with Connor and the Liberal Party, and I hope that we will start seeing some very positive changes within the house

    Actually the Tories are closer to you, unless you're using party leaders for positions.

    Given their record in government I don't think there will be much opposing going on.

    Have just compared the two and I'm surprised at how different they are actually. Both party leaderships have changed since, and party relations are at a different place than they were then.

    Irrelevant? Please tell us that again when you want to pass your Budget. This is quite clearly one of the smallest MHoC Governments to form in recent history.

    Here’s to the beginning of a great working relationship between all three of the parties to this coalition.

    In answer to some comments already posted on this thread, I can confirm that I am the DPM.

    Tories are a socially centrist (at best), right wing party.
    Libbers are a socially liberal, right wing party.

    Tbf, Count didn't write either of the statements so he wouldn't know - it's not like he said I definitely didn't use it. I also can't speak for Catus so she might not have.
