This thread is for others who are not taking part in the debate. Obviosuly nothing much will happen until the first question is posted.

I mean in the debate thread. Are we supposed to interact with each other?

Is Aph referring to the time when he illegitimately declared himself the Prime Minister when nobody in and out of the government, or even within his own party at the time, recognized it?

That's not true but sure...

When the Prime Minister is away, the Deputy Prime Minister becomes Acting Prime Minister. This is how it works in real life and how it has worked here in the MHoC. You were never elected leader of the Greens and so you were never acting Prime Minister. You had no support from the government to recognize your claim, and the Speaker at the time issued a statement to say you were not the prime minister (ie you received no appointment from HM The Queen).

That is, unless there was somehow another period of time when you were actually PM that I don't know about.

That isn't how it works in real life.

My claim was supported briefly by Adam until his puppet masters told him to say no.

There's no DPM right now. But Nick Clegg for APM when Cameron was away.

I don't know about this claimed support from Adam, but to become PM, even briefly, you need to actually have been inviting by the monarch to form a government.

One example does not constitution make.

Not on TSR...

There's no other example. I don't remember exactly if Adam was First Secretary of State, but that'd be another example of Adam being APM by convention if he was.

On TSR, the Speaker would be the one to make this recognition. You were not recognized by the Speaker.

I thought we had a closing statement. This is mine: This election in real life UK is about Brexit. Whether you believe we should leave the EU on the existing deal or if you believe we should have a further delay, or even potentially cancelling Brexit and ignoring the democratic result altogether. If you want to vote based on that, vote for us if you have had enough of these Brexit shambles and think we should just do it once and for all.

But on TSR, there's very little we can actually do about Brexit. So I would say this is about the way forward beyond Brexit, and we should be your clear choice. We are the party with the broadest range of policies and the most number of them as well. To govern this country, you cannot just throw out slogans here and there, and we have the will, the people, and the commitment to serve our country. You can vote for an empty shill, a party whose main policy is not doable, a party that's quite out of touch, to take fun away, or an independent who thinks he knew how things work because he once staged a failed coup which brought down the government he was a part of, or you can vote for us.

I apologise for disappearing, but I had arranged to meet a friend before she leaves on Tuesday and I (presumably) never see her again. If anyone has any questions about my responses then please do ask.

I too had prepared a closing statement:

I would like to thank the Speaker of the House, Andrew97, for inviting me to participate in this debate.

By way of concluding, I would like to say that I am a candidate that will stand up for the people of Britain and for their right to live their lives as they wish. As a Member of Parliament, I will seek to do the best for both the country as a whole and its citizens, but prioritising the individual where necessary in order to allow everyone the freedom to choose their own path.

I hope that when deciding where to put their mark on the ballot paper, the people of this country will put it next to my name.

To ask JMR2019. where he was during the debate? Does he think that it’s acceptable for TSR’s potential prime minister to flunk a debate that every other party leader and independent candidate attended?

I had not prepared a closing statement but was able to thank the Speaker which would have been my opening had I been asked.

Well just to be picky and correct you, Soggy was MIA as well. But of course in the greatest respect to Soggy, his lack of appearance is much less important than the lack of appearance from a potential PM.

I have a life outside of TSR, but I am waiting to respond to any questions the other party leaders want to direct to me.

Hello candidates,

I myself will be voting either Labour or Lib Dems, but I am unsure which of these to vote. I want to remain in the EU.

Why should I vote you instead of the other?
