The main political news in the UK at the moment (although I suspect it will get swamped on September 19th by the Scottish referendum) is the Clacton by-election caused by Douglas Carswell defecting from the Conservatives to UKIP and then resigning as the MP for the seat in order to contest the by-election as UKIP. Now, as I have no idea how to create a scenario, what I will be doing is making notes here of all the major events that happen in the by-election campaign (news stories, events, candidate nominations) and am hoping that someone can make a scenario out of it or tell me what to do?
