Welcome – Start Here

Welcome to PoliticsUK – whether you are new or returning. PoliticsUK (or PolUK) is the longest running political simulation on the internet, running now for seventeen years (although the people have changed rather a lot!). We’ve all been new, so this is a quick guide on how to go about starting out

What is this?

In PolUK you will play an MP in one of three main parties (you can learn more about them here), debating and proposing laws, and trying to win elections. How you go about that is up to you! You could become a government Minister, Prime Minister, or a maverick backbencher.

Step 1 – Make a character

You can find how to do this here. 

Step 2 – Sign up to Discord

PolUK is played on this site and on Discord – you can find out how to sign up here.

Step 3 – Get involved!

There are lots of ways to get involved – an explanation of the different things your character could do are set out here. You can also fulfil some of the “challenges” to build your character here.
