I am writing this article to inform you, the great members of the eUK that I have decided to this term run for Country President. There is great work still to be done here and I am stepping up to give my all for Queen and country.
First I would like to tell those of you that don’t know me a little bit more about myself. I have been UKPP PP twice in the past and during this time we brought around a change in the mentality of the UKPP and get a bit more involved in politics and discussion to have our points heard. I will not take the credit for this fully as it was a huge team effort but I was there and helping to coordinate this. I have also more recently been the vCP this past term. This has taught me the inner working of the government and how to interact with other countries at the international level and within our alliance TWO. This could help with a calm and seamless transition of governments. On the military side of things I have been a Captain in both the RN and the DC since my first month in the game. This shows that I am active and regularly online to change the DO. This will be applied to the national level as CP as I will come online and change it accordingly.
I believe that the eUK needs a calm, level headed and someone who has an idea already of what they want to do and the knowhow of how to do it. I have shown in the past to be a person that does not get easily draw into confrontation between individuals and groups. I will not rush into decisions until I have all of the information available to make the best decision for the eUK. I also believe that I have the right level of experience at a high level as vCP this month. I also believe that combined with this I am young and fresh enough to be able to re-energise the Cabinet and therefore the Country. I also feel that I have the right balance of respect for both sides of the political divide to be in a good position to bring them both together.
In the last two months we’ve had a lot of highs and lows, having been taken on a rollercoaster ride by our current president Bigant. He has brought us some good times, some laughs, and plenty of entertainment, but all of that comes at a cost.
I believe that this next term we need to assess the finances available to us as a country. Now we all wish, me included that the eUK was wealthy and had a infinite amount of capital to throw at fighting constant wars but this unfortunately is not the case. Now the other candidates have both picked up on this fact and this is good as it is both an important issue and one that should be sorted no matter which candidate wins in that case. This means the eUK will benefit no matter what which is always good Now the figure being thrown around at the moment for total loss this past term financially is 200,000 cc. There was also a loss of 400,000 cc the term before.This would appear to show a very bad and rightly so couple of figures. I believe that with careful management and cutbacks in sections that we can afford it but at the same time not damaging the eUK in the long run I believe we can start to right this deficit.
Another sour point in the past term was the damage to the eUK politically, this has not just been on a national level but also on an international one. There has been small problems caused by events both within our control out of it. I believe that a good proportion of our effort this coming month needs to be spent on improving our standing in the eWorld and enhancing our prestige.

I hope you enjoyed this article and there will be 3 further articles to explain my manifesto in more detail and to try and show you why I would be a great CP for you, the citizens of the eUK.
