UK Election 2015 for 2010 engine

Recommended Posts

So to celebrate my big return to this forum, I will make a UK 2015 election scenario for the 201 engine.

For those of you that have already made any, feel free to offer suggestions. If you have any pictures from the official scenario- please send them my way.

Just for notes, I'm going to replace Veritas with the English Democrats and add the Christian and Christian People's Party in with them. Respect will include the TUSC as well. I'll get rid of the BNP and replace them with National Health Action- which will also include CISTA.

As for the issues in the scenario- here's what I have so far:

Asylum and Immigration

Balanced Budget

Devolution

Economy

Education

Environment

European Union

Foreign Policy

Government

Housing

Law and Order

Military

NHS

Northern Ireland

Political Reform

Tax Policy

Transport

Welfare

Issues fixed.

I had started on a hack-job of this for the Canadian PM4E engine a while back, but didn't get very far. I had added Ukraine and ISIS as issues, as they were big things at the time I was working on it (I'm not really sure if they actually came up in the actual election or not). I had also reworded Devolution to take into account the aftermath of the Scottish Referendum, and Welfare to account for the "mandatory work programs" where people on welfare and unemployment insurance are put to what is essentially full-time employment but are still only paid welfare/UI benefits, as legally they're doing a "work program" and not a "job" (which sounds to me as the same kind of legal loophole to get cheaper-than-legal labour as peonage in the Old Deep South). I know this because someone I know online from the UK is enduring said Orwellian program. I think I also had English Governance and NATO issues, if that helps. Like I said, I pretty much quit work on it several months ago to work on other projects, so those issues are probably not fully up to date.

To be honest, I'm not quite sure I fully understand how a Westminister-style parliamentary election would get any justice or remotely accurate rendering at all by a presidential game engine.

I'm thinking that I may get back to it.

Parties wil be (not necesarily in this order), with Leaders in Parenthesis:

Labour (Ed Miliband, Alternates: David Miliband, Ed Balls, Andy Burnham, Diane Abbot, Jeremy Corbyn)

Conservative (David Cameron, Alternates: Boris Johnson, George Osborne, Nicky Morgan, Theresa May, Michael Gove)

Lib-Dem (Nick Clegg, Alternates: Tim Farron, Simon Hughes, Vince Cable)

Scottish National (Nicola Sturgeon, Alternate: Alec Salmond)

Green (Natalie Bennett, Alternate: Caroline Lucas)

UKIP (Nigel Farage)

National Health Action (plus CISTA) (Richard Taylor)

Ulster Unionist (Mike Nesbitt)

Democratic Unionist (Peter Robinson)

SDLP (Alasdair McDonnell)

Sinn Fein (Gerry Adams)

Alliance (David Ford)

Respect (includes TUSC, Socialist Labour, etc) (George Galloway)

English Democrats (includes Christian, Christian Peoples, TUV) (Robin Tillbrook)

Independents (includes Speaker) (John Bercow)

As for parties, I think I'll replace the BNP with the National Health Action Party.

If someone wants to help me with issues, that would be great.

That sounds very good.

Some issue ideas:

Referendum on staying in the EU

Scottish Independence (Devolution)

Syrian refugee crisis

Financial aid to Greece

Military intervention in Syria

Same-sex marriage

NHS

Relations with Russia

I'll add more later, if I get good ideas. :)

How are these? I'm not sure if Same-Sex Marriage was a bigger issue than Rural Affairs (which includes Hunting Bans), Pensions, or the Middle East (which would include Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Israel-Palestine, and ISIS).

Referendum on staying in the EU- in there as European Union

Scottish Independence - in there as Devolution

Syrian refugee crisis- in Middle East

Financial aid to Greece- not really an issue

Military intervention in Syria- in there as Middle East

Same-sex marriage- not sure if it was much of an issue, it didn't seem to cause that much political fallout or benefit (save by shifting the right of the Tories to the UKIP and the right wing of the Lib-Dems to the Tories)

NHS- in there

Relations with Russia- not really an issue
