Today’s news is added in with my usual announcements. Make sure you read and vote this article!
ON A CABINET RESHUFFLE
I recently asked everyone in cabinet to sign a no party politics pledge, in which they agree to stick to their government role only for the last week of term. This was mandatory and each minister had the option of signing or resigning. I felt this was a necessary step after speaking with Count Drakula and Madacaion, in light of the recent acidic party politics plaguing our nation. I’m not talking normal party politics, I mean the kind that is really discouraging players right now, with baseless attacks, slander, spin and outright lies being bandied about all over. I’m sick of it, and I’m sure most of you are too, and so I decided that government needed to take a stand.
Government needs to be above reproach, needs to stand aloft and not be brought down with partisan struggles. It needs to be a shining example to the nation of the best we have to offer, and needs to model the characteristics we want to see in everyone. And so it was with a heavy heart that I forced cabinet to do this, full in the knowledge that I would have to fire some good people, good friends, if they wanted to help their parties. I did so to give you a symbol: Of a government that will serve the people above all, rather than serve themselves; I think we really have that now.
All ministers except three signed the pledge and agreed to put party politics aside for the remainder of my term. Those three were:
I count each of those three as a friend, and I hope there are no hard feelings for my decision; there certainly are none from me and I totally understand each person’s decision to focus on their party. I know each will continue to help the country in their own way and do their utmost as always, and I want to thank each of them for their service.
ON THE CP ELECTION
The CP election is hotting up with both Wayne and Count Drakula throwing their names into the hat thus far. I count both as friends and wish them both well in the campaign, and the best of luck if they do end up being elected- they’re gonna need it!
I am sure each would welcome your scrutiny and your questions about their campaigns; our politics are at their finest when we engage with candidates and are constructive, and I encourage you all to do exactly that with these two. Likewise our politics are at their worst when we attack candidates and go negative- I want a clean election this time please, be supportive to them!
