What If I’m Part Of A Party?

I can only guess at how to answer this. I’m watching party dynamics unfold this term with as much ignorance and interest as the next person. I guess parties have a couple of basic choices – to try and spread themselves fairly evenly across Committees, so that they can have a bit of influence in a lot of places; or to try and “capture” one or two Committees that are central to their agenda, so they can have a lot of influence in the places that matter most to them. We’ll find out very soon!
