A lot is happening behind closed doors at the moment, so I will try and shed some light on our progress over the last couple of days in today's article.
Before I start I want to pay a special thank you, this should have been done weeks ago but with so much going on time has passed. During the Azores battle many of us supplied, including myself and many of my ministers who put in many more hours then me! But one individual shone! He supplied for 36 Hours before being FORCED to take a break!
So I want to present the "Conspicuous Gallantry Cross" to FragUK for his astounding contributions to Queen and country of the eUnited Kingdom.
FragUK is a hero, he did not ask for this or ever mentioned it. But I feel he deserves to be highlighted as a perfect example of what our country needs. People who are willing to put aside fighting and work hard on a common goal to conquer and win. We need more Frag's In the UK!
Firstly Thomas765 has stepped down from his post as Minister of Foreign Affairs, partly because he would struggle for activity this month and a personal clash with another minister. I want to thank him for the few days input he made, hes a nice guy at heart and I wish him the best for his upcoming exams. Replacing Thomas is Butjam who brings his MoFA experience from last month forward. He is a bright young player who deserves a chance and so he has it now to prove to us what he can do. To watch over Butjam and Jimbojoy in the MoFA department I have installed Talon Karrde to be advisor and help them when required.
We are actively looking for war and some action I promise you that, however having spoken to TWO the UK is needed in a supporting role for now which is understandable with so many big battles coming up. We are committed to helping our allies and friends as they have helped us in the past and for the time being this will be our main operation.
As some of you will have seen in the media this week, the recent TWO meeting was leaked - all of it. This is a major problem for the alliance but also for us directly as we could have talked about some seriously sensitive information. Fortunately for us, we didn't spill anything major, but in light of this the UK will not being speaking in any TWO meeting until either the idiot leaking is found or new measures are taken to counter this problem.
Congress this week made a massive boo boo. We signed a MPP with Australia, now for some of you, your thinking that's not all bad I can have a pint of fosters with the boys. But it goes much deeper then that, our long time friends and allies Indonesia are arch enemies with the Aussies and Chile have only recently come to peace with Australia. War is expected from Indo and Australia soon, which means we will lose a major MPP with a very old friend.
If we lose this MPP, it will be signed again - But I would urge our congress to in future listen to MoFA and CP for instructions before voting on such foreign matters. This is why we are here to help and guide our nation and congress to make the correct decisions, this regrettably was an incorrect decision.
Congress will have new guidelines for future votes, which will include holding all votes until some official line has come from either myself or my government. For the record the MoLA SageGoku will NOT being influencing any future vote. He is doing a great job but he over stepped the mark with this vote, which could have hurt us.
Finally whilst on the subject of congress, the forums are just not working. Goku has reintroduced them in recent weeks to be welcome with continuous hate. This is a major problem, because as CP can I send our new players to a place of such trolling and hate? I will be pondering what to do in the coming days.
Tomorrow we are releasing the new "MU Premiership League" o7 - Graphics, tables and rules etc have almost all been completed so keep an eye out for this as all MU's will be invited to take part.
*** IM activily looking for SOMEONE with excellant graphic skills to create a new MoD Orders article!!! Can someone please save me and our nation from looking at the eye sore with currently have THANKS
CTA - Last month the "Call to Arms" scheme cost us £70,000 which was a third of our entire income for last month (taxes). This is simply too high so as from today supplies will be cut from 4x Q7 to 2x Q7 to half the cost.
MU's and official status, I'm still thinking what is best for the Nations future. I'm listening to a lot of opinions from in game and the forums. Some want a new Nation MU, some would join and some don't believe we need one. So for now I will assess what options we do have, this is a big decision to make so I won't be jumping into hot headed.
MoF & Taxes
Carlini continues to do his work and bless him he can't win at the moment because gold is dropping and dropping. A new law proposal is to pull 250k from our in game accounts to the Bank of England. This money will be used for more MM Fishing and to create a 10k Q7 stockpile for war time.
With the battle against Portugal and Canada, We had a few problems with supplies and lacking Q7 tanks, and some ministers paid higher prices for tanks. So instead of wasting cash, we will buy our tanks in advance for cheaper prices, thus preventing any panic when we go to war. Basically its better preparation for a new war or if we get attacked.
Our VAT tax on weapons has been increased by our congress from 10% to 15%, as prices drop on the market and thus our tax revenue daily. These increases will help bridge the amount we are losing. The fact is the game is hurting right now and I just hope the admins move to fix the problems before we lose more players.
Finally on MoF, we are Renting out Orgs for 1 month contracts @ 6k A pop. If you are interested please contact either myself or Calini8
Check out our offer to rent out ORGS this month! Here (Carlini)
