I really hate and tried of being stabbed all the time, there are so few players with honesty.

Why someone can left a diplomacy game?
Can someone explain why and how?
Isn't the rule stating that CD may occur if player missed to play 2 turns without login? Then why a "LEFT" occured?

Points Display
Why does the number of D-Points displayed next to a player's name equal their available points instead of their total points? Total points would be a better measure of skill.

I'd like some advice about if it would be good to purchase a Russian Dragon's of Tarkir booster box for about $100 USD? Shipping prices don't matter, as my friend is in Russia at the moment (he is the one actually buying this, and is wondering if he should).

UK Politics
We have had an elected Head-of_State since forever, we've had a Prime Minister elected with something like 25% of electorate and now he is standing down to be replaced by new PM that no one elected. Home of democracy? I think not.

Convince MPs to have a vote of no confidence in the government at large. That's probably the easiest way to get someone actually elected.

You don't vote for the Prime Minister, you vote for your MP. That is how the Westminster System works. The system may be flawed but there is nothing new here.
TrPrado (461 D Mod)
11 Jul 16 UTC
But it's always going to be the party leader, so a vote for an MP from the party is effectively choosing their leader to be PM.
TrPrado (461 D Mod)
11 Jul 16 UTC
I believe the point is more along the lines of if the Head of Government is stepping down there should be a general election so that the change in the way the government is run is something solidified by popular vote. Maniac is, after all, part of the Green Party, which has been pretty supportive of trying to get another general election.
TrPrado (461 D Mod)
11 Jul 16 UTC

As a matter of fact, however, there IS something new about the general election bit, at least relatively. Theresa May has vocally suggested she wouldn't call a general election, though many ask her to. In truth, she CAN'T call a general election. The Prime Minister hasn't had that power in about 5 years, thanks to the Fixed Term Parliaments Act 2011, which goes back to my suggestion in my first post, which the easier of precisely two ways to call an early general election, the other being getting a vote where 2/3 of all MPs agree to have an early election. Either way, it's a decent bit of work.

David cameron had said before last election that he would be stepping down before the next. Just happened a bit earlier than i think he presumed.
When high district magnitude becomes a sine qua non of democracy, then we've constricted the definition more than we really need to. I'm not saying single-member districts are perfect by any means, but the departure from proportionality that they allow for does not turn the system into anything like undemocratic.
Maniac (344 D (B))
12 Jul 16 UTC
@Jamie - typo, meant to say UNelected.

@TrPrado - we Greens don't have a leader at the moment and one could argue that with Labour in disarray the Tories would increase their majority in any election, but that's not the point. Elections shouldn't be called when it favours a political party, they should be automatic upon change of Leader. If PM steps down, then a GE should be called within six months.

@OP: David Cameron was elected by the Conservative party as their leader, not the public. Parlimentary systems always select the prime minister by parlimentary vote not popular public vote.

The party can remove the prime minister by a vote of no confidence at any time. The rest is your imagination

Labour is a mess by now. There is an unbridgeable divide between the Labour MPs who think Corbyn is hopeless, and the union support base that think he is their only hope.

"and yet labour party MPs singularly failed to remove their leader by a vote of no confidence." Could it be because the majority is still confident with Corbyn? :D
TrPrado (461 D Mod)
12 Jul 16 UTC
No, it's because he refuses to step down despite getting no confidence.
Gobbledydook (1389 D (B))
12 Jul 16 UTC
Essentially, there are two factions in the Labour party. There are the party members, which tend to be union workers, and there are the MPs which are politicians. The party members decide who is the leader of Labour. However, the MPs are the ones who provide the votes in Parliament to form government and pass laws.

Now the problem is the MPs can't stand Corbyn but the party members love him. So we have this unfortunate situation where the MPs are led by someone they hate, so they want to kick him out.

@Wusti: Why do you say that? He's a man of principle, and unlike many of his fellow Labour MP's, a true socialist. He has a huge mandate from Labour members and supporters. It's the Blairites who are disgraceful, dragging the party through the mud and preventing Corbyn from getting on with the job of leader by attempting to sabotage him at every turn. They should respect the wishes of their members.
Gobbledydook (1389 D (B))
13 Jul 16 UTC
Jamie, is it your opinion that the Labour MPs who are against Corbyn should leave Labour and set up their own gig?
Because frankly, that is probably the only way, other than Corbyn resigning, to resolve this impasse.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
13 Jul 16 UTC
Corbyn should ask any members of the parlimentary party who don't like to leave the party... He can find candidates for the next election and turn the party back towards what the base (who support him) want.

Looks like the Conservatives have a pro-EU, pro-Brexit leader, so no split there, and no re-alignment of the Lab-Con-UKIP lines. Despite the Anti-Corbynites being closer in ideology to Theresa May than the anti-EU Cons who'd be better off in UKIP (also i've been offline and away from news, why did Farage resign as leader of UKIP?)

Best line i've heard is "Theresa May discovered to be Thatcher's final Horcrux."
Jamiet99uk (443 D)

@ Gobbledydook:

If they do not want to recognise the democratic wishes of Labour members, who elected Jeremy Corbyn with a strong majority, then yes, they should resign from the Labour Party, and resign their seats at Westminster. The members of their Party have already spoken, less than a year ago. The membership chose Corbyn through a democratic process. If an MP has no respect for that, then he or she should resign.

Having resigned, if they wish to form a new party and campaign for re-election under that new banner, that's their decision.
Jamiet99uk (443 D)
13 Jul 16 UTC
(Of course, the likes of Tristram Hunt and Liz Kendall have no need to form a new party. They can simply apply to join the party whose values they support - the Conservative Party.)

Meaning of "no in-game messaging"
First-time player question: if a game has a "no in-game messaging" setting, does that mean there's no communication between the players at all? Or is there just a specific kind of messaging the players should/should not use?

*Apologies if this is answered somewhere in the rules or another thread; couldn't find it specifically anywhere.
