Has anything further been planned along these lines? For example, might there be Parliamentary Hearings? Are people calling for same? Given that the war resulted in an atomic blast nearby, and the fallout is probably having an impact on the southern NAL, one would think folks would be truly up in arms about this.

New Party?

One fallout from the latest news might well be the creation of a new political party. Possibly around the Adullamite Republicans? BTW, I did some research and finally found out what that name presumably refers to:

...member of a group of English politicians who rebelled against their leaders in the Liberal Party and defeated the Reform Bill of 1866. Their name was derived from the biblical reference to the caves of 'Adullam (1 Samuel 22:1), which served as a refuge for the discontented. The Liberal politician John Bright applied the term to party rebels who opposed the extension of the franchise proposed by W.E. Gladstone and John Russell, 1st Earl Russell, in 1866. Some of the group of about 40 members of Parliament acted out of fear of losing their seats, but most agreed with their leader Robert Lowe (later Viscount Sherbrooke) in his fear of the effects of democracy.

Anyway, I can see a new Party arising within the next two or three years at most. Zahir 22:31, 26 December 2005 (PST)
