CD - Internal Affairs Manifesto

Dia 1,839, 14:25 Published in United Kingdom Reino Unido por Count Drakula


Hello eUK!

Today's article will be my internal manifesto, my external manifesto can be found here. Unfortunately, there will be a gap in count von count tomorrow but he’ll be making a return on the 4th along with my cabinet list and summary points as well as a response to some comments on my previous manifesto.



The Vice Country President and a war update:

Personally, I like the current 2 vCP option. It allows two different people to work in the areas they are best in. I think that it has worked quite well, Madacaion has been working on updating the wiki and I hope that he continues this work into the future! I’m happy for whomever my vCPs end up as to do their own work, as long as they are working then I am happy.

In addition, part of my work as external affairs vCP I contacted the Belgian CP and vCP (who is running for eBelgium CP) and arranged a short meeting concerning a training war. They have agreed that a TW is definitely something we can do, if I am elected this war will begin on the 6th of December! I hope that some of you are happy that war is sorted for next month.



The Ministry of Legislative Affairs and The Ministry of Health:

There isn’t much that is possible to change here. In terms of the MoH, all I can say is keep on donating! Carlini has agreed to look over the finances of the MoH and produce some v nice statistics for those that donate. I reckon that anyone willing to donate food towards the NHS should be able to see exactly what their donation has done for the eUK, wouldn’t it be awesome to say that you funded the NHS for a few days?

The MoLA has little that it can do currently, it just makes sure that legislation is passed in the correct manner and that the citizenship committee is working. I’d like a the MoLA to start running a formal policy debate each week, with party representatives debating a specific topic over IRC (with addition of general questions from anyone towards the end, non-IRC goers can PM the MoLA ingame to submit their own questions) and the MoLA writing up an article with the debate logs in and each party's point of view on the subject. If we are properly discussing these topics and not just mud flinging at each other we can work towards a better eUK!



The Ministry of Education and The Ministry of Finance:

These are both ministries that have done good work this month. Carlini, as ever, has done a fantastic job as the MoF and Betafoxtrot has worked well as the MoE. One thing that does concern me about the MoF however, is that we don’t have a big variety of MoF candidates; trusted players that know their way around the financial system and are IRC active. As such Carlini has agreed with me to mentor a newer player in the ways of the MoF, with Carlini keeping the keys to the reserves and doing the monetary market work of course.

The MoE has been working hard recently but again there have been a few too little candidates, I urge anyone interested to apply! I think that the current level of work by the MoE is an acceptable amount but that more can be done to improve on it. I’d like to see some more ingame games sorted out for this role, something that BigAnt asked Talon on the podcast (don’t you just love plugs?); Madacaion has agreed to set up a Mafia/Werewolves game. Another change is that there needs to be additional advertising on the MoH to get more people on it and possibly for MUs as well (the MoD will do this in its articles as well). Getting newer players involved in MUs is a good way to increase retention, as they become involved in the MU community and start to make new friends, and this is key part of the MoEs role.



How to become a minister:

Step 1: Send me a PM with information about yourself (a brief bit on you, what ministry you want to apply for, what experience you have and how IRC active you are/willing to be)
Step 2: Wait for a reply, I’ll try and reply to most if not all of them, I may want to ask you another couple of questions or want to arrange a meeting on IRC.
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Become minister.

The current positions I am looking for are:
1 x vice Country President
2 x Minister of Defense
1 x Minister of Education
1 x Minister of Finance
1 x Minister of Health
1 x Minister of Legislative Affairs
2 x Minister of Foreign Affairs

1. Another war with Belgium would be fantastic. Helps train new playersin war properly and allows us to get a few more TP medals. Plus, there's no chance in hell we'd be beaten by the Belgiums :p

2. I'm concerned by how large the NHS is costing us, but I suppose we could maintain current expenditure (donations permitting) if we really can't do w/o it. Cuts should be discussed, however.

3. Would be good to encourage more policy debates, especially in involving more people : 3

I join with all brits in tipping my hat to CD for organising war. Fantastic work as I'm sure everyone will agree. Not only has he promised something, he's already delivered! So if you want war, vote CD!

4. As with BA's manifesto, more forum games and activity can only be a good thing. Simultaneously, it's nice to see you're not threatening to axe these forums and base of activities either :p

Thank you for listening to us and finding us a Training War. I'm sure that BigAnt can press the button too though.

It'll be entertaining seeing all your supporters who defended to the death the idea that we can't have a Training War soon now having to do a 180 and queue up to say how awesome you are for doing exactly what they apparently didn't want 5 minutes previous.

For example Bohemond4:
"However, as has been stated elsewhere, it is not currently favourable for us to engage in a war at the moment due to pressures from EDEN. Even a training war is currently untenable due to other nations rattling their sabers...nations who instead of wanting a TW would like to see us wiped."

...has changed to...

"congrats on sorting the war!"

Amazing!

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 14:55

Talon Karrde:
"Don for the love of all that is good and holy engage your brain, I listen to everyone, but some people, like yourself, are just wrong all the time. It gets pretty annoying and yet I still read all your crap.

No war for now, we will keep our regions and continue being good allies. "

...has changed to...

"I join with all brits in tipping my hat to CD for organising war. Fantastic work as I'm sure everyone will agree."

Well you didn't agree this morning?

Sir Humphrey Appleby
Sir Humphrey Appleby Dia 1,839, 14:57

The changed position of Belgium means it's now possible. Previously, without their consent, it would have been a proper invasion -not an agreed training war :p.

Ofc BA can push the button, but it'd CD here that's done the diplomatic graft in allowing either of them to do it. Hats off for a manifesto already partially delivered.

Bohemond4
Bohemond4 Dia 1,839, 14:57

Goku, I would like to say that there has been a demand for finding a war. If the position is untenable, I would personally oppose it, though it is Congress' choice, but at least he found one before his term, should he win, starts. Something no other candidate has actually done.

If you read his other article, you would know he would lay the facts to Congress and let them decide. Go figure

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:01

Well this morning several countries such as Russia and Germany where going to attack us if we had a Training War.

Now we have had a chat with Belgium and apparently the previous danger used to discredit other people's ideas has gone? Was it ever there in the first place or are you doing somehting you don't belive in because you found out that it's a vote winner?

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:02

So Bohemond is a Training War "untenable" and you don't support CD's agreement with Belgium or is it fine? If it is fine where you wrong or lying this morning?

Count Drakula changed the situation, now a TW is possible.

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:03

Actually Goku you're missing a crucual variable. It's understandable as you don't have experience at CD's level but it's an important one. All the CPs are about to change, including Russia's, in which case the threat will almost certainly be over. CD has worked hard on this one and has things set up nicely.

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:07

The previous argument was that other enemy countries would intervene in any training war to wipe us out.

How does Belgium agreeing to a training war change anything? Their consent isn' a factor because if you don't get consent it isn't a training war, it's a real one.

Does Belgium have control over Russia and Germany and pals? Or is the "changed situation" that "we want to do it now so it's ok, if you want to do it it's dangerous".

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:08

Unfortunately Don you seem to have missed the point again. Keep slugging buddy.

You may call me V
You may call me V Dia 1,839, 15:11

They have made a complete u-turn , after all the name calling saying it too risky , how stupid Dapper is, I Don't look stupid if now your having a war you people are Con Men trying to save your votes - I hope people read this

http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/a-uk-war-is-needed--2167549/1/20 shows you attacking the idea and a few hours later using WAR to win votes.

You have gone back on your words and are not to be trusted ! and look fools TRUE STORY BRO

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:11

Talon Karrde when did you guys realise that there is an election on the 5th changing the CPs? Only this afternoon!?

Why were they a danger this morning but not now in the evening? That there is an election is not new information lol!

Have you spoken with the CP candidates of Russia and got any agreements with them or intel? When did you speak to them?

Bohemond4
Bohemond4 Dia 1,839, 15:11

The situation will have changed at this point, I argued against a war at the current time. If on the sixth the position is tenable, then it has my personal support, for what it is worth.

See Talons prior post.

Niemand
Niemand Dia 1,839, 15:13

I trust we can count on the Count to have a nice war to get some medals.

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:14

So if the siuation is changing because of the election, why did you guys use the current siuation to discredit a new player's desire for a training war?

Why didn't he get the benefit of "the CPs are changing so it's ok in a few days" like CD does?

You may call me V
You may call me V Dia 1,839, 15:16

Talon you can't keep telling someone is wrong when there is many others that agree with the points I make, then you go and do what I was saying all along after you put my ideas and thoughts down , it doesn't wash Talon , thanks for listening guess the people crying for war were right !

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:16

That article didn't consider a time component to war- current circumstances dictate we can't have war; future circumstances dictate we can. It's about long term planning Goku, hopefully you can help do some next time as opposed to encouraging new players to jump the gun.

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:17

Unfortunately Don you've done it again. Keep at it though, your example will be a great morale lift for others! If you can rule a party anyone has hope!

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:18

I think that a few of you need to man up and apologise for flaming people for wanting to do something and then doing that exact thing to get votes in an election.

Paticularily Talon Karrde to Don Dapper.

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:23

Talon flaming an article on the morning of the 2nd of December for wanting a war, then supporting another article in the evening of the 2nd of December for organising a war could make sense if that war was organised a month or so in the future.

The war is organised for the 6th of December, there not enough difference between "now" and "in 4 days" to justify what you have been saying. It just looks like your saying whatever you can to discredit people even if you don't belive it.

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:23

4 days is not "long term planning" by the way.

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:29

Indeed not, which ought to tell you it's been in the works for a lot longer than that!

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:32

This reminds me of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4zYlOU7Fpk
With the names of the enemy and allied countres swapping over every few months/years and nobody notices.

The party and people all wearing the same clothes reminds me of something in eRepublik too...

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,839, 15:36

Talon if a training war had been in the works for more than a few hours this afternoon, why on earth were you going into articles this morning apparently telling us all how wanting one was "wrong" and "crap" along with "No war for now, we will keep our regions and continue being good allies."?

You just twist the facts to suit whatever you want to do at the time:
Discredit New Era -> "War is selfish!".
Win an eleciton -> "War is fantastic!".

Your credibility is draining away.

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:39

My credibility is in the results I get, which are unparalleled. Just like CD's- he's promising and delivering right here in this very article.

WayneKerr
WayneKerr Dia 1,839, 15:45

my god, stfu... We have a war now, just be happy. ffs! Political point scoring at it's finest from the lot of ya...

Talon Karrde
Talon Karrde Dia 1,839, 15:54

Oh also, we just founded TWO. Long term planning ftw

BoatsandHoes
BoatsandHoes Dia 1,839, 16:33

Personally I am happy to see that we may have a war allbeit a TW but it does look a little hypercritical that for weeks certain people who have been attacked for saying we need a war and then the very same people/party go and announce plans for a war

What happened to the fear that we will get attacked by our enemies if we go to a trainng war? isn't that what has been said in the media/pms for weeks or was that just scaremongering and now it suits ie elections are here a war is promised?

Spygon
Spygon Dia 1,839, 16:39

I think it has been obvious what has been in the works and why the no we cant go to war we are small and scared smoke screen has been being used.

Voted and supported. If a TW with Belgium can be done safely for both countries, hooray!

Lucky the game has Don Dapper it seems his right again, nice one Don

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Dia 1,840, 01:30

If we'd attacked someone before we'd have been counter attacked, but Count Drakula has fixed it so that they attack us instead. Another thing is that now that we are in TWO we are a less attractive target.

N W G
N W G Dia 1,840, 03:39

i hate to say it but it does look bad when you say 1 min we cant have war due to the fear of being jumped by other countries, then the next min saying that war is great and theres no fear now we will be jumped.

If it is long term planning then it should more have been said along the lines of " there are plans ahead but right now we cant act on it"

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Dia 1,840, 03:56

There is still a fear, but as we will not being doing the NE ourselves and now have the protection of TWO and an MPP with Brazil we are much safer than before.

Spygon
Spygon Dia 1,840, 04:53

What did you want them to say yeah we can have a TW next month due to our allaince plans with etc etc

You guys have played this game a long time to know how allaince making works you act like your worried your about to get invaded by any neighbours and keep the talks very hush hush.

That way you dont get spies and enemie countries trying to distrupt the talks

Sir Winston S Churchill
Sir Winston S Churchill Dia 1,840, 05:41

N W G spoke the truth well said .

Mr Woldy
Mr Woldy Dia 1,840, 05:49

It's about warring responsibly, that's all

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,840, 05:59

Danie Fox: "If we'd attacked someone before we'd have been counter attacked, but Count Drakula has fixed it so that they attack us instead." Who said that we needed to be the attackers?

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Dia 1,840, 06:01

Spygon: "I think it has been obvious what has been in the works and why the no we cant go to war we are small and scared smoke screen has been being used."

So can we get an apology for being called idiots if it was all just pretending to disagree with us to make our enemies confused?

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Dia 1,840, 06:15

Its the same as the PTO argument last month, just pure scare tactics by TUP. Anyway well done Don for bringing a war to the eUK and the players who are desperately bored.

Proud of you buddy

Oh and vote Big Ant O7
