    Socially Liberal, Fiscally Centrist. Perhaps the only person in Scotland who doesn't mind John Major

    Poll for new campaign!

    Not always. The Holy Roman Empire and Poland were elective monarchies, although the HRE was de facto hereditary as it was ruled by a Habsburg emperor for 500 years

    App to redraw the states

    Got a Clinton victory with the only majorly noticeable change being chopping off whatever that eastern bit of Florida is called and being added to Alabama

    Trump Forum Approval Poll (May 2018)

    This. In the end I would say she did more harm than good. She was simply an agent of the rich, and her ties to dictators and fraudsters cast her integrity into doubt in my eyes.

    2010: The True Cleggmania

    On one hand, PR is definetly a fairer way to conduct elections. On the other hand, in the UK we don't generally have coalitions (before the Coalition Government in 2010, the last we had was during the Second World War) and it feels more comfortable to have a majority government. Also, under First Past the Post, there is more of a say for voters on who they want as their MP, instead of voting for a party.

    UK 1979 - 2015

    Conservative MP Airey Neave has been killed in a car bomb attack outside the House of Commons. The 63 year old, the Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary and a lawyer who served the International Millitary Tribunal in Nuremberg, was assassinated by a group calling itself the Irish National Liberation Army. Margaret Thatcher said of him: "He was one of freedom's warriors. No one knew of the great man he was, except those nearest to him. He was staunch, brave, true, strong; but he was very gentle and kind and loyal. It's a rare combination of qualities. There's no one else who can quite fill them. I, and so many other people, owe so much to him and now we must carry on for the things he fought for and not let the people who got him triumph." The attack comes two days after the vote of no confidence which brought down Prime Minister James Callaghan's government...

    Alternate US Presidential Elections 1788 - 2016

    I was doing something like that, but I forgot about it. Now you've reminded me I'm probably going to go back and revive it.

    Canada 2004 (without Alliance/PC meger)

    Something worth noting about these results is how FPTP affects the results. Despite beating the Canadian Alliance by 5.3%, or just under a million votes, the PC's failed to come ahead in terms of vote share. If the election was held under the D'Hont method, the result would be as follows: PC (27.93%): 89 Liberals (23.29%): 75 Alliance (22.56%): 72 NDP (13.76%): 44 Bloc Quebecois (8.73%): 28 Green (3.72%): Not enough votes Others (0.02%): Not enough votes
  10. In a shocking election result, Prime Minister Paul Martin led the Liberals to their worst electoral defeat since 1984. More shocking however, was the rise of the Conservatives from the political dead. From their result in 2000, the Conservatives gained 67 seats, winning 79 seats (compared to their result of 12 in 2000). Despite winning the popular vote, they ended up 9 seats behind the Canadian Alliance. With none of the three parties having a majority, the Liberals considered building a three party coalition with the NDP and Bloc Quebecois, which would leave them fourteen seats short of an overall majority. However, Stephen Harper quickly reached out to the Conservatives. Conservative leader Peter MacKay said in a statement yesterday: "There will be no formal coalition between our party and the Alliance. However, we will support the new government." Stephen Harper will presumably be the leader of this new government, but how long the minority government, short by 67 seats of a majority, will last is yet to become certain

    North Korea war

    I think it is a trap, but not one involving poison in the tea or anything like that. I think that they'll exploit Trump's volatility

    What party/political designation are you registered with?

    If I lived in the USA, I'd probably be a Democrat. Definitely more like Doug Jones though

    Fictional Presidential Election

    Title: SenatorName: Mitch K. CampbellParty: DemocraticPolitical Influence Points: 20State: LouisianaStarting Funds: 10,000,000Description: Born in New York City, in 1971 to two immigrants, Mitch Campbell has risen to prominence within a very short space of time. After graduating from university, he worked briefly for Vice President Al Gore, before becoming the legal advisor for his 2000 campaign. He gained widespread recognition in the aftermath of the 2000 election and the Bush v. Gore legal battle. After spending a few years working in New Orleans as a lawyer, he announced in 2003 that he would run for the Louisiana Senate seat. He narrowly lost that election to David Vitter. He then worked as a political commentator, before deciding to run again in 2008. He finished second in the jungle primary behind incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu, but defeated her by .3% in the run-off. While in the Senate, he has been one of his party's most rebellious members, voting very much in line with the Blue Dog Democrats. Critics, however, argue that he is barley a Democrat, and unlike the majority of the New Democrats, has drifted right instead of left. Leadership:4Integrity: 3Experience: 3Issues: 3Charisma: 4Stamina: 3Debating: 3Basic Political Views: Very much a Blue Dog Democrat, although more progressive on gay rights and has made the creation of a Federal Health Service a main part of his campaign
