    I meant Connor might have some sort of involvement in this government.
    Yes that’s what it says in the statement, isn’t it? Don’t see how that makes me DPM

    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.
    Pretty sure it's two parties not three.

    Thank you for the confirmation I appreciate it.

    Ironic from the person that "enjoys" annoying others.
    I do not particularly care what the right honourable gentlemen is referring to, but I urge him to put aside his clear vendetta towards me and others in this house, and to move on from the past 7 days.

    It doesn't say what role you will have - which as I've said before it's obvious you're getting a role.

    I put the number in in an attempt to make clear I was talking about ‘parties’ in the sense of those involved. I was meaning the Libertarians, the Liberals and Connor.

    I don't have a vendetta towards you. I'm just saying what you said is ironic because you've been the centre of that. I'm happy to move on as long as your toxicity doesn't return.

    Expel Life_Peer from the Tories then you can preach about toxicity.

    Tories are a socially centrist (at best), right wing party.
    Libbers are a socially liberal, right wing party.
    You're looking at centre vs centre left and slightly liberal vs slightly authoritarian
    and centre vs right and slightly liberal vs slightly more liberal

    The Tories aren't left of the Liberals.

    Centre vs Right, Liberal vs centre
    Centre vs Right, Liberal vs Liberal

    That's the way I see it.

    I'm quite surprised the liberals agreed to work with Connor tbh. Iirc back during the coalition negotiation (before the Con-Lib-NatCon government was formed) The liberals did not want to work with the libers with Connor, Joe and Jammy in the party and now they are willing to work with Connor? Interesting :holmes:

    I look forward to the liberals stabbing both the libers and Connor in the back and causing another government to collapse!

    That's the way I see it.
    I meant to say centre-right

    The libbers should be significantly right of the libbers and the Tories are not that far right (remember how they support unsustainable minimum wage growth, throwing money at problems hoping they go away, and don't stand up for freedom of contract)

    Fair enough. You'll say that I'd obviously say this, but I feel like there's a lot more of crossover in policies with the Libbers judging from the policy negotiations and agreement, but we'll see how the rest of the term goes

    I imagine it’s something to do with the fact that I’ve reformed compared to where I was at the start of this term.

    I refer you to ‘The Return’ thread

    I expect it to be heavy in concessions with nobody being fully happy on much.

    Connor is ideologically closer to us than both Joe and Jammy are, and Connor has changed a lot over the last few months.

    You were the one that withdrew from the coalition, remember?
