I shall make a prediction once we know Fez's intentions more however i do agree with LP that victory without a mass PM is highly likely.

I'm hoping for a 'targeted PM', but it will probably link to an election thread, rather than straight to the poll.

Conservatives: 18
Labour: 15/16 (hopefully Red can effectively command his wider membership)
Libertarians: 8/9 (dependant on the persistence of the LT)
Liberal Democrats: 6/7 (seems about average for them, but Eppeb needs to be proactive here so as not to get less)
Independants: 1 or 2 seats maybe (not sure who plans on standing)

With that being the case then the result should not be too distorted by RL and most party policies are rarely especially unpopular. That said, i am also wary of forecasting large shifts so..

Conservatives: 18
Labour: 14
Liberal: 8
Libertarian: 9
Indie: 1

My essential thinking for these elections is partly by-election based and partly relative activity based since the last election. Labour will struggle to match their prior vote because they have spent large parts of the term not contacting them. Liberals are poor but not inactive so will probably gain from Labour's woes. The relative dynamic on the right has swung from the Libers to the Tories (i have ignored by-election data here which would suggest an even worse result).

And see everybody with the means to do so leaving the country because they want to go somewhere where there are police on the streets, teachers in classrooms, and they aren't taxed extra for having a job.

True, though I’m kinda counting on the fact that there are only 4 parties and the Libertarians literally lost 4 seats because they’re dead. 9 isn’t an outlandish prediction at all

There's been a recovery in active enough numbers since and the 4 remain about, just not able to commit to being on when needed

I will make full predictions when we are in the election, but there are too many variables yet to really make an accurate prediction.

Conservative & Unionist Party: 16-19
If I had to bet on the election, my vote would go to the Tories. They are by far the most well-run party in the House and, even if there is a targeted PM, Labour's momentum on wider TSR will be a bit lower as we are past real life election season.

Labour Party: 15-18
Labour's performance will most heavily be impacted by the targeted PM. With 16 seats last election I do not see the party falling below 15 considering activity has decreased throughout the House and we have become more active near the end, but external activity could easily see the party receive more seats than it warrants.

Libertarian Party: 7-8
I believe we are going to see the worst election in the party's history. Although they still have a solid member base to get votes out of due to being the newest party and still receiving the benefits of Fleky's recruitment, any more than 8 seats would be a surprise to me considering their current strength.

Liberal Democrats: 5-6
I think people are underestimating how weak the Liberal Democrats really are right now. With a new and relatively unknown leader who hasn't lasted the term, it will be on 04MR17 to guide the party away from complete failure. I don't think there's enough time to at least stop the party from losing at least one seat, and it should be guaranteed if there is a targeted PM and/or a higher turnout.
