Based on voting records only, I'd like to fail this election. Convince me I'm wrong...
That does seem a little "convenient", although I'm not sure what it's convenient for...

I don't have any real problem with this government.

I don't understand why you and DW chose to vote yes on the 2nd government, and even worse I find it strange that you voted no on my government. Other than that, I don't have a good read on you or IWS (like always) so I'm not saying I won't vote yes, but I am curious to know what WW is thinking. Honestly, I'm curious what she would do even if we did pass this government.

While there is a chance P&Q was actually dealt LLL and is claiming FLL to screw with card count, the probabilities are so low I am pretty much discounting it. That leaves us with a range of cards for this next government from 4L, 7F to 2L, 9F. That makes failing multiple governments a risky bet. But it also means we have has high as a 50% chance of having FFF dealt. Even in the case soy is L and was telling the truth, we have a 72% chance of getting at least 2 FFs in this next deal so I there is a good chance the next President gets to investigate someone, especially if he is F.

F's also sometimes vote for an L-L govt if it looks obvious it will pass. There was no reason to expect the PQ-Ken govt to fail as there was no info on either.

Which reminds me - did you or IWS ever explain your N vote for the previous govt? We got the result so fast, there wasn't much talk of the vote.

From your perspective I understand that. Not as much from WW.

Possibility on last Gov
PQ L telling truth on deal and pass. No info on Ken
PQ H passed FL to F Ken; Ken claimed LL.
PQ F got FLL or LLL and passed LL to very likely Liberal Ken

I’m not sure which is most probable but these are the outcomes I see as most probable. I guess there are other possibilities but these seem most likely given L policy.

I didn't think we were likely to get much useful information out of the last government. Almost certainly an L policy would get passed bc anything else would bring too much suspicion at this point. The only partially useful info is cards dealt/passed.

I feel SS was most likely L. Had PQ nominated DW or me YT, I would have voted Ja.

Well if Soy is fascist (up in the air but I'm leaning towards it), and wanted to skip to PQ or myself for president, then it was obviously PQ since I am liberal.

Also I felt comfortable being in the "do or die" govt had PQ's govt failed.

Always Mr. or Ms. Alt?!?
