    1983 - FPTP ruined me.

    I think it has a lot to do with the uniformity of the UK, there are of course regional particularities, but the not the sweepingly different needs and vast distances of Canada, not to mention Quebec being a province completely independent of other trends. Increase regional disparities leads to broader parties that crack the moment they have to make though decisions. Nonetheless, I took your strategy and ran the election again. C - 38.5% - 366 All - 35.0% - 142 L - 21.9% - 116 Basically the same vote , but taking down the Labour Party allows you to slip in there for the official opposition, you were correct, the map basically saw orange replace all the red parts of the map at the beginning of the campaign, while I was much weaker then last time in the South.

    Well, don't get me wrong, I'd never want to change it IRL, especially not in Canada where I now live, but FPTP is a real piece of shit to smaller UK parties. No matter who they are, Lib Dem, UKIP, or the Greens.

    1983 - FPTP ruined me.

    I played as David Steel leading the 1983 SDP-Liberal Alliance, and had a great campaign, but FPTP destroyed me in the end, though it was much better then the 75 I had in the last days of the campaign. Dominant Performances in the West Country (25/31) and North East Scotland (21/34) helped get me at least close to second place in the seat count. Conservative Party (Thatcher) - 10,466,843 votes (34.8%) - 275 Seats Labour Party (Foot) - 7,507,758 votes (25.0%) - 187 Seats SDP-Liberal Alliance (Steel) - 10,655,900 votes (35.4%) - 162 Seats

    Prime Minister Forever British 2015

    You can't do 1993 without the PCs, they began the campaign polling in a tie with the liberals and then slowly faded because of the numerous blunders made during the game, and in the 2015 version of UK PM4e, there is no way that UKIP can be arbitrarily mixed with the others, UKIP is out polling the Lib Dems! Also the nationalist parties are a major factor in Scotland and parts of Wales and you cannot simply remove them without screwing up the game. If you really hate the NI parties than go ahead, they have no bearing on the actual result, but you need at least 7 parties on the mainland unless things change drastically. Your position on parties would destroy the realism of the game.

    2015 UK General Election scenario thread

    The numbers seem to work out to a very likely scenerio based on current polling. In Scotland I gave the SNP a +10 boost and the labour a -5 in Scotland, gives the SNP 3% nationally and 22 seats. Nick Clegg deserves an upgrades well. He may not be popular, but being the deputy prime minister should get at least 3 in experience. The labour need Dave MIlliband, Gordon Brown (Why not? He just be imported from 2010 with a few modifications.) The conservatives have a good variety of leaders, perhaps Ian Duncan Smith. The Lib Dems should probably have an alternative leader as I think that it is still a possibility that Nick Clegg will get dropped. If you want me to start new leader's files, you need only ask.

    2015 UK General Election scenario thread

    Some electoral trend advice Conservative -10 Labour +10 Liberal Democrats -10 UKIP +10 Also I would be willing to help give UKIP a full slate, a seemingly very likely scenario. Great Scenario!
