The House of Commons is the lower house of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It sits in the Palace of Westminster, also known as Parliament House.

The House of Commons is an body consisting of 100 Members of Parliament elected by the Mixed Member Proportional system to sit in the chamber until dissolved. Usually, the largest party or coalition in the House of Commons (in terms of membership) gets to form the government. More often than not, coalitions are formed to enter into government, to make sure that the government has the confidence of the majority of the House.

The current government is a coalition of the Conservative Party led by CheckMyBrain11, who has been leader since 20 September 2020, and the Libertarian Party UK under the leadership of Friedmanite19. They rule with a 4 seat majority having won the August 2020 United Kingdom general election with an increase of seats for the Libertarian Party having offset small loses for the incumbent Conservatives.
