It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software.

Indeed . Basically , a half dozen gombeens could turn the country on its head and send us into a tailspin at any time in the next 2 years . Yet we dont need an election !Well, if they're a minority Government then they're admitting that they have no mandate.
They shouldn't be throwing terminology around like that without understanding what it means.
The Government is in power as a shaky coalition that is supported by independents. It's a minority if it loses a vote.
