"There can be no liberty unless there is economic liberty" - Margaret Thatcher 

The Conservative and Unionist Party (commonly shortened to the Conservative Party) is a right wing party in the MHoC which believes in ensuring nobody is prevented from reaching their potential. The party believes in pragmatic capitalism in the form of low taxes, strong preservation of private property rights and strong incentives for corporations to invest in the nation.

History

The Conservatives are another founding party of the Model House of Commons. The Conservatives have recorded a huge variety of results, failing to contest the Fifth Parliament and thus winning no seats, but averaging approximately 11 seats per Parliament, with a peak of 19 seats in the Ninth Parliament, the highest achieved by any party to date. In the earlier era of the Model House of Commons, the Conservatives were the sole right-wing party and as a result were very successful in forming government against their key rivals at the time the Liberal Democrats, who had to fight for the leftwing vote with Labour and later the Socialists. During the Second Parliament, a small splinter group of Conservatives abandoned the party and formed the Libertarian Party. A series of defections saw the Conservative Party disbanded during the Fourth Parliament as they did not have enough activity, and they returned no seats at the Fifth Parliament General Election.

Reformed under new leadership, they contested the Sixth Parliament General Election and had returned to full strength by the Eighth Parliament, forming a minority government. During the Ninth Parliament, they returned 19 seats, an all time record for any one party. Unfortunately, their coalition offer to the Speaker with the Libertarians had the same amount of seats, but less votes, than the Liberal Democrat-Socialist-Labour coalition offer. The Conservatives caused a constitutional crisis by refusing to accept the legitimacy of the Liberal Democrat-Socialist-Labour coalition offer on the grounds the constitution didn't specify whether a three party coalition was acceptable or not. The result was a null government for that term. Unfortunately for the Conservatives, the size of the party lead to a schism and another splinter group left the party, forming the Patriotic Conservative Party. The Conservatives went on to lose 9 seats at the Tenth Parliament General Election, but entered government as a coalition partner in a Liberal Democrat-Conservative-Centre Party government.

In the Eleventh Parliament, the Conservatives managed to reconcile the differences between themselves, the Patriotic Conservatives (now called UKIP), and the Libertarians, allowing them to form a coalition government. This successful partnership continued into the Twelfth Parliament, although UKIP was not present for the second term. The thirteenth Parliament marked the end of Conservative dominance within the House and Labour served as leading partners in the next 2 governments including a rainbow coalition which included UKIP. The Conservatives in the 14th parliament underwent a period of internal restructuring with the replacement of 2 leaders however after winning a by-election they then launched a vote of no confidence against the incumbent Labour party who had seen its coalition with the Liberal Democrats collapse due to inactivity, Labour avoided the resulting vote of no confidence which had cross party support and called a general election. Despite being the largest party following the general election the Labour Party found no support for their continued governance and this allowed the Conservatives to form a minority coalition with UKIP and the Independent Faland. The latter however was forced to resign after the Ad Hoc scandal, and this government would turn out to be the most active government in MHoC history. In the Sixteenth Parliament, they won 7 seats, the worst for any contested election and formed the Official Opposition however following the next general election they returned to government in the 17th parliament as part of a union of the right, a Conservative-UKIP-Libertarian coalition.

It is worth noting that from January - June 2007, the party closed down.
