Should their be two prime minister per country???

Do you think that there should be two prime ministers per country???

We think that there should be two prime ministers per country.

Why???

We think this because it would be much better to have two because if people work together sometimes it can be better because it is not just one persons opinion it is both and if one person is making the wrong disision then the other person could correct them.

Should there be one girl and one boy???

Yes there should be because it is then not going to be leaning to one side it will be equal on both sides. You would also get to see how boys and girls see issues differently and how they fix them. We know that boys and girls think about different things and sort out problems differently and it would be really interesting to see how they are unique in their own ways.

What happens if if one quits???

Well if one prime ministern quits than we are not going to take the opportunity away from the other person we will just have to find a new prime minister to step in. They will obviously have to have some kind of backround with government.

If you want to become a prime minister what personality have you got to have???

Well if you are a prime minister you obviously have to be quite responsible because people might look up to you. You also have to act like a leader because you have to become a leader of a whole country so you need to know how to lead as it is a big responsibility.

Thankyou for reading our post

    No i thing if there was two prime ministers they would always fight over what they are going to do for anything and how they are going to solve stuff going on in the world. But if it ever happend they would have to be people that can compermise together work together and mabey even now eachother or can get to now eachother .Do you agree with me.

    I believe there should only be one Prime Minister per country. This is because there is already a fight for power over the country. Having TWO Prime Ministers would result in a large struggle for power.

      I strongly agree. Having to prime ministers would be extremely chaotic, this is because the two leaders might have a different view on some things, this would lead to huge disagreement and the political party might be divided when it comes to to views.
      Brain stand!
      I think having two prime ministers would definitely be beneficial. This is because having two prime ministers would mean that more people are represented by the leader, this is because the leaders might have different views on things and therefore more people will agree with them.

        We have to remember that these PMs are probably going to be from the same party. This means they would agree on most things together? Right?

      Having two prime ministers for a country would be good and potentially bad for the citizens of it. We have to remember that these two prime ministers would probably be from the same party unless it is a downright coalition [ not relevant to this particular subject]. This means they would share most of their views and opinions with each other. If they did agree on something together, that is 2 PMs- a strong mandate for what they want. Although, humans are humans and naturally we want power and more power and more power. This would spark tension between the two prime ministers and slow down parliament. Another reason why I think we should not have 2 PMs is because the general public might just like one of them and therefore creating stress for the other PM. To summarize my view, we should not have two prime ministers because it will cause tension, stress and will make it harder to vote for the party they represent if they only like one of them.

        I agree with my brother on this [ versatile_molecule ] because our country cannot tolerate two prime ministers. Who would cause less productivity and make it unclear on what their united views were. Having two prime ministers would also mean something a lot of people forget- double power. This would mean that both leaders would have prime command powers. The clear path for this to take is then using 'double power' for bad and take advantage of what they can do. To add on to the 'less productivity' side of things, when prime ministers declares something which only he/she has to agree on, it is easy...but when there are two prime ministers it could mean a 1-1 disagreement. To conclude my point, I would like to disagree with charming_studio@Hammond Junior School B, two prime ministers would cause havoc, unclear laws, disagreement and less productivity- a vital element in making a strong government.

    I think their should be two prime ministers per country because having two opinions put together on one thing will make the prime ministers understand everyone else's opinions so everyone can agree with what we're doing to our country

    I like you’re thinking.
    If we were going to have 2 prime ministers, then there would be more decisions would there be a boy and a girl? Where would the other prime minister live, 11 downing street? Would the prime ministers argue over decision? Would parliament be overthrown? I don’t know what would happen since it’s a really big change.

    Well i think there should not be two Prime Ministers per country because they both could have to different ideas and could both disagree with each other.If there was to be two Prime Ministers per country they would have to make the decisions together and would have to agree on them.Another reason that there should not be two Prime Ministers per country is that people might dislike one of them and like the other so the one who is not liked will be jealous and will try and do things to stop them from being liked.

    I think this country only needs one prime minister because the prime minister at the moment has the whole conservative party to help him with his decisions, and if he is unable to take the responsibility of prime minister, he can resign and let another member of the party take over, or the labour party could take over.

    What you said is that two prime ministers may be extra useful for the country but I disagree with that and here's why. The first reason is that most PMs are power-thirsty, so they may try to be bigger than each other and decrease the work process! It may be a good reason because if they are from the same party they could have a lot of excellent reasons already prepared. Another thought that twice as much PMs would be worst is because of the way that our democracy is. when we are voting is there going to be four people to vote for? It could make it harder to decide. For my last reason, I wanted to say that it could be good if they were from different parties because they could have different viewpoints of the people and how they think.

    I believe that their should not be two PM's per country, due to the fact there would be much more fuss in the commons room and in parliament in general. There would be many political arguments and many riots or protests this would affect our smooth running society at the moment. The economy in our country would be affected majorly and things would be different and there would be many problems.

    Having two primeinisters per country would be good because each priminister wants to change their country in a way but not always in a good way therefore having two priministers would make they are doing the ringt thing to help their country . But to make sure they do the right thing there could be one from the conservatives and one from labour for an example . This maybe going a bit to far but if it works each country would get a fair and kind government. But if it doesn’t bad things could happen for example a lack of leadership and most party leaders hate each other so if we do take this risk it could help the country lots or damage the country’s leadership and government

    I strongly believe that we should not have more than one prime minister per country. I believe this because:
    Firstly, there would be lots of disagreements between the politicians and due to this there would be lack of productivity, this means that there would be more arguments and tension, having two prime ministers might also split the party. I will provide two examples to support my argument. The two prime ministers might disagree on whether Heaththrow Airports's runways should be extended, this in turn will lead to tension, lack of productivity and lots of arguments. The two prime ministers could disagree on whether the government should invest in more electric car charging stations. This will lead to more arguments, delays and confusion.
    Secondly, the public might find it harder to vote due to the fact that two candidates are standing together as joint prime minister, the candidates could be loosing potential votes as a result of people spoiling there ballot, I understand that as Olivia @ the BNC said, if the two candidates are standing together then they will have simillar views but they might have different personalities and as a result of this constituents might like one joint candidate but dislike the other, the same for MPs, they might like one prime minister but dislike the other, due to this there could be division in the political party. I will provide two examples to support my argument. A constituent could be trying to decide who to vote for but one person they dislike and one person they like could be standing as candidates for joint prime minister, the person will find it really hard to vote as a result of this.
    Finally, as genuine cat said, there are many imperative decisions that politicians have to act on, this would mean two leaders views would be unclear. I will provide an example to support my argument, the government could be deciding whether to ban electric cars in two years, both prime ministers could think the same thing put people might get confused because the two prime ministers said it in slightly different ways, it might not be clear to the public which side they are taking
    In conclusion, I strongly believe there should not be more than one prime minister per country due to the fact that there would be more tension, disagreement and lack of productivity, constituents would find it harder to vote due to slightly different views, different personalities and things they say might be unclear because they say it in different ways, what they actually mean could get clouded.

    I think that having two prime ministers would be a bad idea, I think this because there would be lots of disagreement between prime ministers, I understand that if two politicians are standing together as candidates for prime minister then they would probably have similar views however, personality plays a big part, they might have the same goals for the country but they might carry out different things in different ways, their personality might have an impact on the way they run the country. In addition to this, the public might find it hard to vote because although the two candidates have similar views, some people might think one candidate is mean and the other is not. For example: lets just say, Donald Trump and another Republican stand together as joint president, many people will have different opinions on both of them, some people might think Trump is racist, others might think differently.
    However, I can see this from another perspective, one PM could correct the other, for example: the House of Lords goes through bills that pass through the Commons, the Lords and Baronesses edit and improve those bills. In addition to this, although, as I said, they will agree on most things, there will always be something they disagree with on such as taxes or schools. More people will be represented, they people who did not vote for the PMs might agree with one of the PMs whereas if there was one PM then more people would disagree with both of them.

    I think there should: On the one hand I think there should be two Prime Ministers because they could work together and make up points.
    I think there shouldn’t: I think there shouldn’t be two Prime Ministers cause there are MPs to help the Prime Minister. Also they could have different points of view.
    In conclusion I think there shouldn’t because there are MPs to help them.

    Prime ministers are good for the country because they help the country decide on what’s best for us. If there wasn’t more than one prime minister they would probably fight over what’s best for us and then make the wrong decision then resign,and then we have to re-elect them. Also we would have double the amount of General Elections and then they would have to happen more regularly. On the one hand, some people might think that it is a good idea because they could make good decisions together and, as bonus , two parties can win so that means more people are happy. But, on the other hand some people might not like the idea that much because, the leaders of both parties are rivals trying to be the Prime Minister so they don’t normally get along. I, personally think it is not a good idea because it just means double the amount of people in power and double the amount of elections which I, and a lot of people don't agree with.

    Thanks for reading,
