Gold Prices Continue Their Decline

Day 1,893, 06:22 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by Ziltoid16
Gold Crisis



On the dawn of day 1,888 the price of gold hit 338GBP, just 5GBP from the price of selling gold for currency at 0.003, by the end of the day it happened, and the market went into chaos. The price dropped suddenly as one user put in excess of 1400 gold ingots for sale at 290GBP, these were sold in under ten minutes, and the damage was done. All of the currency for sale at 0.003 was snapped up and the price stabilised at 0.004 with the gold price temporarily jumping to 319.5GBP. Since then gold prices have been falling steadily towards the next tipping point of 250GBP with the current value at just 270GBP. At the current rate gold will reach 0.005 by day 1,895.

In Other News...

Former enemy of the eUK alfagrem is running for CP. alfagrem is a former eFrenchman & eCanadian in both cases fighting above and beyond the call of Merc medals against the eUK. After purchasing One Vision with huge supply packs to its members he is now seeking to take the CP position but has made no mention of how much he is paying per vote.



In his recent article addressing his plans for foreign affairs he states that should he become CP he would not even consider Legion, the 13th best MU in the TWO alliance & by far the best MU in the eUK, as the official eUK MU as the MU commander Carlini8 is not an eUK citizen. He also makes clear he will continue to support the TWO alliance despite rumours circulating that he plans to invade eMexico and cause a conflict with eSpain in the process.

In my opinion alfagrem could do an ok job as CP if only he could let go of his prejudices, since the UKRP has such a large role within the eUK for such a small party, and alfagrem due to his unfounded hatred for the UKRP would hardly allow input in his government from them.

A drop in the value of gold is the same as an increase in the value of currency - it might lower prices even further : / I wouldn't be surprised if the currency-buying bot is swapped for the product-buying one soon.

Voted, looks like he will be a bad CP, the Legion is awesome.

if legion got a new commander who was not a member of a political party and is a uk citizen he would let legion keep its status

Current Gold prices make the baby Jesus cry.

I don't know, I have seen Alfa stand back and side with TUP/UKRP when it was kicking off about two months ago. He can make a very rational and neutral argument if you read his comments and I think he could make a good CP...I can't imagine him not willing to work with opponents though in Government

Voted by the way...and when is Carlini going to run?

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Day 1,893, 09:23

In OV he's refused to work with UKRP at all, vetoing their candidates for CP from the ballot. That's not very neutral, and doesn't bode well for him working with opponents in government.

@nathaner

Carlini is not in a party and is a Polish citizenship simply because that allows him to better afford to keep supply levels as high as possible - what is possibly controversial about taht?

If anyone believes Elle's story I have a large steel tower I'm selling in RL. Its located in Paris and I'll take cash only in small denomination used notes

To be fair, Alfa is presenting his policies and arguments in a mature fashion and he continues to develop them as the days go by. I actually see where he is coming from on the majority of what he says and I do not think they are outlandish, even with having the Commander of an MU a UK citizen. I don't agree with it, but it is a fair point.

As for Alfa tanking against the UK in the past? Well, he seems to have cleaned up his act now and the UK is notable for forgiving past transgressions of all sorts when someone wants to do right by us. I'd much rather forgive than to be a prisoner of hate.

Carlini is one of the most hard working people i have met in this game if the choice is either to change our commander or not be a national MU because of a person short sightness and not "apparently" understanding how the eworld works.

I will stand by Carlini every single time.

@Hugh Carlini is not political so unless he makes his own party he wont run.

Forgive Alfa and give him a chance is one thing, Giving him the top job without first proving himself in any government roles is quite another if you ask me.

He has put his points across well as others have said, but it wouldn't be the first time that we see a good and mature campaign from a candidate prior to the election only to see a different person in office should he win and then end up doing so of course.

>"..alfagrem is a former eFrenchman..."

>"In OV he's refused to work with UKRP at all..."

>"... vetoing their (UKRP) candidates for CP from the ballot."

Ignoring these bizarre theories, unfactual comments and physcotic episodes I'll address the one point here with some validity;

ACroc > "Giving him the top job without first proving himself in any government roles..."

I've had governmental jobs in other nations having run the full gamut of tasks in eSK, strike supplier in Canada, Trade in eNZ.

In the eUK my roles have been restricted to working in the MoD during the disaster that was Kevy's term (along with MetalMicky and Mr. Norfolk) as we avoided a 3 nation wipe (emerging with two of our enemies wiped and the other peaced out through exhaustion).

Domestically I've helped set-up and progress 2 parties again filling multiple roles within them as well as helping Steeeev sort out and re-start the PCP's MU.

The reasons I've never held any official office in the eUK (if we ignore the Kevy and Kravenn incidents) is that I've disagreed with the policies and direction the then governments were taking and therefore could not join them and pretend otherwise.

Just apologise for fighting for France and Canada and people will stop bringing it up. The vetoing by you of the UKRP was something the PP at the time admitted to on IRC.

>"Ignoring these bizarre theories, unfactual comments and physcotic episodes"

Everything I've said in this article, with the exception of the invasion of eMexico & the potential war with eSpain, (which is a rumour only and I stated it as such) is a fact. Rumours spring up every day about you and I find them amusing, but I will state them as rumours, only an idiot would go to war with eSpain at this point and you are a lot of things but not an idiot.

You wouldn't consider Legion for Official MU in it's current form, despite it being the best MU by far within the eUK.

I know from first hand experience your stance on the UKRP from messages sent to me by you when I first started playing and was recruited into UKRP, you held me responsible for mistakes that were made by people I had yet to talk to at a time when I didn't even know this game existed simply because of my party affiliation. Perhaps your multi-e-national background causes you to forget that we are all in this eUK together regardless of what flag we go under. I am Legion before I am UKRP, but see nothing wrong with the UKRP or the way it operates, certainly no justification for how butt-hurt you are with regards to them.

"I've had governmental jobs in other nations having run the full gamut of tasks in eSK, strike supplier in Canada, Trade in eNZ."

Sorry I might have been a tad unclear, but what I meant was if you wanted to prove you have purely the best interests of the eUK at heart and can be trusted having returned from enemy nations just a few months ago, then the best way to do that is to slowly take on more responsibility and prove you can be trusted with it.

"In the eUK my roles have been restricted to working in the MoD during the disaster that was Kevy's term"

So you're saying that the sum of your eUK government work is helping out in the MoD once and that was over a year and a half ago.

"The reasons I've never held any official office in the eUK (if we ignore the Kevy and Kravenn incidents) is that I've disagreed with the policies and direction the then governments were taking and therefore could not join them and pretend otherwise."

And this response really does worry me, Government roles don't mean you agree 100% with the agenda, policies or direction of the current government but instead that you are willing to put aside your differences in order to help in the daily grind of improving and keeping the nation running.

What would our nation be if people didn't take on responsibility because their party or chosen candidate didn't win? We have a small enough pool of truly active and involved citizens as it is.

Those are my concerns anyway but I have to say so far the ideas you've put across have been pretty good.

I wish it'd just go one way or the other now, at 40GBP that's fine I'll buy a ton of the stuff, at 3000GBP that's fine too I'll sell a ton of the stuff lol... this in-between nonsense is bad for me.

Carlini is good man, the Legion are a brilliant fighting force that are entirely credible for being major players in the eUK's victories. As an "ex-enemy" of our beloved nation, Alfagrem's presidency would be detrimental to our nation's inner-workings and I urge any voting member to vote against him in the upcoming election. Even if it means voting for BigAnt (*sigh*) it would surely be the lesser of two evils.

+Shit, gold is worthless. Damnit, that's how I make my money. Ah fuck.

There's a massive resistance for gold around £130 keep an eye on this level, still quite a way off yet.

Gold wont go below 1G = 200 Currency - otherwise Governments will just be able to print profit as/when they see fit. If it does go below that, dont except it to stay that way for long, as Governments use their Gold reserves and take advantage of windfall profits!
