  1. GOP Progressive' Scenarios

    I note in 1980 Labour were socialists and thus take up the same role as your idea for the NDP.
  2. EU 2015

    Very well, I shall. And I'd like to see the scenario. chaosman312 aaaaatch warmpost dot communism.
  3. EU 2015

    My thoughts. 1) Ditch the 'The' at the beginning of names. 2) Make the elections based on Euro results and use parties based on the European Parliament blocs: * People's (centre-right Europhile, EPP) * Socialists (centre-left, PES/NGL) * Liberals (liberal, ALDE/EFA) * Greens (green, EG) * Democrats (centre-right Eurosceptic, ED/UEN/ID) * United Left (left, UEL) * Freedom (right, former ITS) 3) Stop making the Turkish issue so explicitly pro-Muslim, especially for the left. 4) Maybe base the seats on actual European Parliament amounts (736) per country, and reduce the amount of seats to match that.

  5. United Kingdom 2008 - The Tory Fightback

    1) The map is very ugly and you should probably get rid of the useless parts. Ireland, white space, logo, etc. 2) Chris Huhne needs to be a candidate. Hell, he's leading in the damned polls for the leadership ballot. 3) The British Right Alliance is already a party IRL. Hell, the leader's a 80soft user (seriously!). And the BNP and UKIP hate each other's guts. They'll never form a coalition. Ever. Both are powerful enough right now to exist separately. 4) Galloway should be an 'other' candidate/leader. Caroline Lucas should be the default Green leader. 5) London should probably be in four, not two, sections. You've got the North East (notable for all the RESPECT/BNPers), the South East (meh.), the North West (very Tory in places) and the South West (LD stronghold). I'm probably going to fix the scenario up myself to an extent at least, though. EDIT: Seems that I'm just plain overhauling the whole scenario at the point. Ah well, it'll never get completed, don't worry.

    I'm willing to make a new political forum, if people want. I must say, I'm annoyed at this. There's no justification behind this that I can see.
  8. New Scenario - United Kingdom 2007

    Oh, I think I know what this is. On a game I play called PolUK someone made a 2007 scenario and included aplenty of candidates from the game ages ago, this appears to be it. A candidate based on myself is one of the LD candidates (Joseph Edwards).
  9. Positive Review of PF+P in Philadelphia Inquirer

    Indeed. I mean, a shining example of that is top-up fees. Doesn't affect Scotland yet was passed thanks to Scottish votes (without those it would have failed).
  10. Positive Review of PF+P in Philadelphia Inquirer

    It's OK to call us British, because frankly apart from a few radical Northern Irish republicans pretty much all of us feel we are British, and most of that British above whatever home nationality we are in. Scotland is a bit of a burden thinking about it, because their oil is drying up and we funnel a hell of a lot of money into Scotland (there's a formula that says Scotland gets greater public expenditure into the country) and we do get a lot of hostility back. That may be why most people want them out.
  11. Positive Review of PF+P in Philadelphia Inquirer

    Scotland has an outside chance of independence. The Scottish National Party are doing very well in the polls ahead of the elections for the Scottish Parliament in 2007, but Scottish independence support tends to have a way of ebbing away. However, with Gordon Brown trying to disassociate himself from Scotland as hard as he possibly can, you never know. Wales, no chance. England and Wales have been bound much longer than Scotland or Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom, and our legal systems are deeply intertwined. Even the nationalist Plaid Cymru are moving away sharply from independence - they're even just called Plaid now, dropping the Cymru (Wales). Northern Ireland, it's possible, but I doubt it. Simply put, if the nation re-unites in Ireland Protestants and Unionists in general will go postal, blowing everything in sight up. As it stays with Britain, there are several problems as well. Yet despite this independence is seen as something that neither side particularly desires - there was a referendum in 1980 with support at just 2%, and the only real campaigners for an independent Northern Ireland are far-right parties such as Third Way (I believe that is their name). England has its own separatists (the English Democrats, whom I am sympathetic to), and polls suggest that a clear majority are in favour of Scotland separating from the UK. And with the West Lothian question raising its ugly head and a clear consensus among the big two party's leaders against an English Parliament, this question is not going to die down What is forgotten is the United Kingdom has existed for many years, and most people in the United Kingdom are monarchists. It's going to be difficult to break the ties that have existed for hundreds of years. And true dat, LiberalUK. I am sick of people - especially foreigners - confusing England with the United Kingdom. They're two distinct things.
  12. Close Elections

    The BNP are a hard-right party dedicated to stopping immigration, preserving the British culture and providing a socialist economic alternative that has been neglected by Labour. Their motives are questionable, but meh. They're a bit of a pariah but they're gaining ground and their policies are actually quite popular according to some polls (it's just the fact it's the BNP that puts people off).

  15. Well, this is interesting.

    Of course - there was to be no Republican candidate and the game didn't like that.
