United Kingdom – 2019 (Second Version)

Having failed to win the support of parliament for the PM’s Brexit deal, the Conservative minority government is now on the verge of collapse. But can a general election break the deadlock?

Starting on the 11th of December with Theresa May’s defeat in the Commons, this is an updated version of the 2019 General Election. The polling hasn’t been updated (still Sept. 2018) but some of the parliamentary candidates have been updated from ConservativeHome, LabourList and a Lib Dem blog, (thanks Joe).

New Conservative leaders – Gove and Morgan (as well as May). New Labour leader – Umunna (as well as Corbyn and Thornberry). There’s also a few other updates based on feedback, and a slightly more realistic narrative (though still not a likely one!). Hope you enjoy.

New Zealand election 2017!

Hi everyone! Here is a link to a scenario I made about last year’s election in New Zealand. This was very hard to make, since in New Zealand most of the Labour Party’s seats are list seats, and we do not have MMP or (Yet) preferences, unlike in real life, so it was difficult to make this. However, I came up with a solution, which was to add some MPs as a top up for the parties (To make up for a lack of a proportional list system) and as a result the scenario works perfectly. Try it out and see how you find it. I also added the Maori electorates as in real life.

Once we have preferences, or indeed MMP, I will update this scenario and add in the new electoral dynamics.

There also seems to be an error with high scores at the end, which I would like to correct, if someone can help me with finding out the reason for it?

Description:

“Note: preferences will be added in a future release.

After taking control of the Labour Party, Jacinda Ardern has shown herself to be a formidable campaigner. Can she lead Labour back into government or will Bill English and the Nationals win this hotly contested election?

This simulation uses a unique electoral system where, in addition to the Maori electorates, everyone will also have a list vote for list MPs on the North and South Island, and smaller parties are given list seats to reflect their vote share.”

United Kingdom – 2019 (First Version)

The Conservative minority government has announced that no deal has been reached with the EU just over two months before the Article 50 deadline. Without a majority for any kind of Brexit deal in parliament, it is time for the British public to return to the polls and break the Brexit deadlock once and for all.

United Kingdom – 2019

The balance of seats is actually taken from polling in September 2018 but is not implausible.

New leaders since 2017 – Sian Berry, Adam Price and Mary Lou MacDonald. Some possible leaders – James Cleverly, Emily Thornberry and Layla Moran…

The tendency towards two party politics also means that three campaigners are available to the Conservative and Labour leaders, representing their most senior allies. Facebook and Twitter have been added to the endorsers, as social media advertising is influential.

2010 – Australia House of Representatives

In preparation for a possible addition of the Preference vote for Australia, I’ve decided to port over some of the old Australia scenario’s from the earlier PMI, PM4E versions.

I am porting the 2010 – Australia House of Representatives.

Major differences from the original scenario;

  • Official polling data/turnout/electorates from the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC)
  • Addition of the AEC as an observer party

This will be updated should the preferences system be finalized to take into account the new feature.

I have updated the 2013 election file also to include a logo for the AEC.
