There's about 14 hours left in the turn. We're still missing a handful of Manifestos and a handful of schedules. There will be no extensions or exemptions for this turn because of the holiday tomorrow.

I'll have my turn up tonight as well. I might end up abusing the use of "interviews", let me know if they're too many.

Your use of interviews is about right. I'd prefer if they were presented either as press releases or speech excerpts (If they're long diatribes) or as more formal interviews (with questions, answers, and exchange), going forward.

Just under an hour and a half to go. I'm still missing schedules from UKIP, the DUP, and Sinn Fein, and I'm missing manifestos from the DUP and Sinn Fein.

The turn is officially over. I will be nice, however, and accept any posts posted before I wake up tomorrow morning.

Processing the turn is going very well! I should be able to have the turn summary posted this evening and, hopefully, get the debate questions up tomorrow.

The turn summary is up, as well as the "Notes from the GM" for the next turn. The next turn is open now, for schedules and candidate lists, but the debate questions will not be up tonight. The goal is to get them up tomorrow evening, around this time.

The turn is open and the debate questions are up! I was worried I wouldn't be able to get them done today - my phone over heated and started to meltdown, leading to me spending 3 hours at the Verizon store after work. Looking forward to this round.

The turn will end 72 hours from now - 11:59 PM on Monday, July 8.

Can I do an opening statement for the debate?

Sure! Opening, closing, and rebuttals are encouraged but not required.

Due to unforeseen time constraints Iím gonna have to drop this. Iím sorry Dkrol Sad

Sad! Hope you keep up the good work on the for God, Crown, and Country TL.

Would anyone like to take on UKIP? If need be, I could write a UKIP-Brexit Party electoral merger in order to save us on players and have NyIndy take over, if he is interested. Thoughts?

Just about 24 hours to go. Weíre still missing most schedules, candidate lists, and debate answers.

Iím going to approve the UKIP-Brexit Coalition and write up a news article on it before I go to bed. For the sake of the game TL, the merger will happen the day after the debate.

Yeah well I'm in the hospital right now.

Ok, thanks for letting me know. Sorry to hear that. Hope everything works out. I will sim your turn for you based on your orders from last turn and you won't be penalized for inactivity.

Feel better GoTfan.

I also wouldn't be entirely opposed to a slight extension as we're missing so much (mine included). But I can get it done without it.

My inclination at this time is to hold the end at 11:59 tonight but allow the grace period of ďuntil I wake up tomorrow morningĒ. Although if there is a large number of posts that are still needed by 11:59, I'll allow a 24-hour extension.

Weíve got just about 7 hours left to go in this turn as it stands. Iím a bit concerned about the lack of activity this turn. Can you guys give me an idea if the 11:59 deadline will work or do we need a 24 hour extension?

Ok. I'll allow the extension. The turn will end at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, July 9. This will be a hard deadline without the "until I wake up" grace period.

With both Lumine and ChairmanSanchez dropping out, coupled with GOTFans illness/injury, and there being a general lack of activity this turn, I am seriously wondering if the game is sustainable. Thoughts?

With the way Change UK was projecting in the game, I wouldn't feel comfortable making them an NPC. In order to continue, we need a new player to pick up Change UK.

I have a idea, the DUP will merge into the UKIP or Brexit party.

Absolutely not.

I donít want to force you back into the game. If you donít feel you have the time, then you donít have the time. If you want to stay in and post a schedule by the end of the day, Iíll allow it. If not, we will continue to search for a new player.

The turn is closed. Lumine will receive a penalty for being late. Glad we kept this moving with relative ease. Expect the third turn to start by the weekend.

The turn is now open. It'll run for five days. I aim to have a mid-turn news update posted on Monday.

Just for fun, and to prove I knew how to do the math, I projected the upcoming Parliament based off of the polls released today. Remember, these are polls, not actual results. Do not be discouraged if your off in one region and do not get complacent if you are riding high across the board. There's still a lot of this game to go.

Current Standings
Conservatives: 163 MPs (-110)
Liberal Democrats: 128 MPs (-38)
Labour: 124 MPs (+26)
British Freedom Party: 73 MPs (+23)
Change UK: 65 MPs (+65)
Greens: 51 MPs (+41)
Scottish National Party: 22 MPs (+2)
Sinn Fein: 9 MPs (+5)
Plaid Cymru: 6 MPs(+1)
Democratic Unionist Party: 4 MPs (-8)
Ulster Unionist Party: 3 MPs (+3)
Social Democratic and Labour Party: 2 MPs (-1)

I also wrote up a long-form analysis piece on the state of the campaign so far. I was worried that I wasn't giving you guys enough explanation for the reasons why the polls were moving and why some players were having more success than others. I hope the article helps everyone going forward to understand where they are and how they got there.

We've got a bit over 48 hours to go. I'm a bit concerned there have been no posts yet at all. Do you guys think you'll be able to make the Wednesday night deadline?

I was waiting on the midturn update.

Fair enough!
