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 Labour Party led by lily-irl, who has been leader since 15 August 2020, the Liberal Democrats under the leadership of a1fie335 and a singular independent imadearedditaccount5. They rule 11 short of a majority having come to power following a coalition formation period after the collapse of the previous government, a coalition of the Conservative Party and Libertarian Party UK known as Blurple, which collapsed following internal leaks and a scandal which had lead to a vote of no confidence in Friedmanite19 to which Conservative Leader CheckMyBrain11 could not promise the necessary support to fend off. This previous government had sat with a 4 seat majority having won the August 2020 United Kingdom general election with an increase of seats for the Libertarian Party, who now overtook Labour to jump to second, having offset small loses for the incumbent Conservatives.
