I'm planning on either combining the Ulster Unionist Party and the Conservatives or having the Conservatives in coalition with the UUP. Which one would be more accurate?

I may do two versions- one with expanded regions and the other based off the formal 2005 scenario.

I will also edit the 2005 scenarios (expanded and regular) to be a bit less biased towards the Left.

What do you guys think?

Note that there will be three debates for the first time ever in history.

-Which date will you use in May or June?

-How strong you will put the Tories and parties in Northern Ireland?

Based of a average of the latest polls:

The Conservatives are at about 40%

Labour is about at 30%

The Lib Dems are about at 20%

UKIP is between 2 and 4%

The Greens have between 2 and 3%

The BNP have about 2%

I think the best way to handle the UUP would be to put them in coalition with the Tories, and to not have any Conservative candidates in the NI seats.

AFAIK, there will be an electoral pact between the UUP and the Conservatives. The most accurate representation might not be the one that plays best.

I think the 2005 election itself was "biased towards the Left", but hey, do what you want.

You need extra issues. How about:

Financial Crisis

Civil Liberties

Drugs

Poverty

Expenses scandal needs to be in there, as it will be much talked about and already is. Perhaps change tax policy to Tax and Spend, or just make sure you make mention of cuts in spending, in this or economic management. This is another much-talked about issue. When are you hoping to release this scenario, before or after the election?

Here's my opinion. Expenses Scandal is one of those issues that isn't left-right, it's bad-good. So it should be measured using Integrity, maybe 3/3/4 for the three big parties.

I would put the Tories and Lib Dems with a 3 integrity.

The UKIP and the Greens will be a 4.

Also, I think Brown should have a 2 in leadership.

I also hope that the scenario will have multiple playable leaders, such as:

LABOR:

Gordon Brown

Margaret Beckett

John Prescott

David Milibrand

Alan Johnson

CONSERVATIVE:

David Cameron

David Davis

Liam Fox

Ken Clarke

Malcolm Rifkind

Alan Duncan

Michael Ancram

Iain Duncan Smith

William Hague

Boris Johnson

Andrew Lansley

Oliver Letwin

Theresa May

George Osborne

David Willetts

Tim Yeo

Edward Leigh

John Redwood

LIB DEMS:

Nick Clegg

Vince Cable

Matthew Taylor

Chris Huhne

Malcom Bruce

UKIP:

Malcolm Pearson

Gerard Batten

Nigel Farage

Mike Nattrass

Nikki Sinclaire

Earl of Dartmouth

Rustie Lee

BNP:

Nick Griffin

Richard Barnbrook

Simon Darby

Andrew Brons

GREENS:

Caroline Lucas

Sian Berry

Jean Lambert

Derek Wall

Adrian Ramsay

SNP:

Alex Salmond

PLAID CYMRU:

Elfyn Llwyd

Dafydd Iwan

I believe, though I could be mistaken, that modern parlimentary conventions would forbid the Earl of Dartmouth, as a member of the House of Lords, from running for PM.

The present UKIP leader, Lord Pearson of Rannoch, is a member of the House of Lords. The Earl of Home was appointed Prime Minister in 1963 while still a member of the Lords. After his appointment, he chose to enter the House of Commons.

Also, isn't the Earl of Dartmouth a former member of the House of Lords? I thought he lost his seat after the Lords reforms in the late '90's. As far as I know, only members of the Lords who still hold their seat are precluded from sitting in the Commons, not those who just have the title.

I'll take a look at Treasurer's Tory Fightback and make some changes. Same with the official 2005 and the expanded regions scenarios.

My argument for my map is that it has fewer regions, and they are all about the same size, so there isn't a significant bias towards barnstorming activity in any region.

I'll compare and contrast and think about doing so.
