Hey again (again) eUK!
It seems that some of you were disappointed with the lack of manifestos posted by me but don’t worry! Todays article will be the first of two that I publish, todays will be on the external affairs side of the eUK and the second will be on the internal affairs. I would appreciate any and all constructive criticism over what I say as I believe that we should be working together towards a better eUK!
Ministry of Defence and War:
These are two things that I know a tonne about, having served in the MoD for several months and being part of the national military command for over a year. The main two ideas for the MoD this month will be, war and sandhurst.
I know that there have been a lot of complaints about war and I honestly speaking would like a training war with another country. However, as Talon discusses in my podcast (/shameless plug), it is possible that we would be attacked on two extra sides due to this and if we were it is likely we would be wiped. As such, I don’t know if the price of war is too high. I will be referring the whole issue to congress giving them all of the relevant information that is required for a complete understanding of the situation and letting them decide if they believe that war is the correct choice (I recently did a forum poll for congress members with the result turning fairly towards one side, however as only 11 congress members have currently participated I would like to get more congress involved and see what peoples opinions are).
Moving onwards to sandhurst: this is a fairly straightforward idea, move those interested in being taught military ideas over from the Ministry of Education to the MoD. It makes the most sense as the MoE isn’t always as knowledgeable about specific military matters as the MoD is. Ideally the MoD would set a couple of assignments over the course of a month (there isn’t honestly much for people to be taught military-wise), one testing their knowledge of how to set orders and one running a strike.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Citizenship Committee:
There isn’t much to say about these two topics, the MoFA does wonderful work at present and I’d like to see that continue into the future. I believe that there needs to be a little more scope for newer players to obtain contacts in other countries so they can eventually look to become MoFA but otherwise I believe that the MoFA is working very very well.
In terms of our alliances, I’d like to continue our strong relations with Serbia, Poland, Spain and Hungary. Although I recognise that some believe we should be closer allied with the eUSA as they speak english as well, it would be a waste of many years of diplomacy to turn our back on our allies now. I’m also looking forward to working with our south american allies, Chile and more recently Brazil, as we are about to MPP them. I’d like to keep in touch with CoT in general as well.
On the other hand, talking about citizenship is like playing with fire. It is difficult to talk about this subject without knowing that I will definitely get an angrily worded PM from somebody saying what I am proposing is wrong. Personally, I believe that if we all agree to use the congress committee system (and that it remains active) that it will work. However, the top 5 parties PPs met and agreed upon a different system. I don’t want to change pointlessly if our current system does work, I propose that we have a review on the 20th of the new system and change it before the new congress is elected, if it is ineffective.
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 (I plan on continuing Karrdes 2 vCP idea, however I plan on giving the 2nd vCP role to whomever is 2nd if I am elected)
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
Two announcements for the price of one!
Pre-manifesto jargon control and a podcast
As mentioned earlier, tomorrow will be my domestics manifesto. Stay tuned for more details!
