A summary of the votes I have participated in during my current tenure in Congress.
Friday 26th October
Minimum Wage - proposed by Mick St John (Saoirse).
Minimum wage change from 0.1 IEP to 100 IEP
Voted 'No'. Reasoning: I recognise the valuable contribution communes makes to eIreland's economic life. Whilst most communes are based elsewhere, raising the minimum wage to 100 IEP would make any new communes based here uneconomic. The challenge for government is to expand the commune system, not kill it off.
Saturday 27th October
Alliance - proposed by Skorpion1984
President of Ukraine proposed a mutual protection pact with Ireland
Voted 'Yes'. Reasoning: Ukraine is a member of EDEN and so we are obligated by treaty to MPP.
Sunday 28th October
Natural Enemy UK - proposed by Unteroffizier Rolf Steiner (Saoirse).
Voted 'No'. Reasoning: another mental proposal from Saoirse. We not only have treaty obligations with the UK (somewhat unilaterally amended with the cancellation of the region swap) but we need to get our own house in order before picking a fight with our neighbour. We can barely feed bootcamp and the treasury is bare. I'm all for the benefits of NEing the UK in the future, but now is not the time.
Monday 29th October
President Impeachment - proposed by MrConway (tfyla)
Voted 'No'. Reasoning: third impeachment vote of the current CP's term. It's getting boring.
Tuesday 30th October
Alliance - proposed by Zek Punga
President of Argentina proposed a mutual protection pact with Ireland
Thursday 1st November
Natural Enemy Poland - proposed by MrConway (tfyla)
Voted: 'No'. We would have been wiped with no guarantee that Poland would have kept this to a TW.
Alliance - proposed by Xenocryst, 3 days ago
President of Republic of China (Taiwan) proposed a mutual protection pact with Ireland.
Friday 2nd November
Natural Enemy UK - proposed by Unteroffizier Rolf Steiner (Saoirse)
Voted: 'No'. Another rogue proposal by this Saoirse congressman at a time when a TW is being organised with Canada.
Sunday 4th November
Natural Enemy Canada - proposed by Seamus Kellie (ILP)
Voted: 'Yes'. Finally a sensible NE proposal where we've actually worked it out with Canada.
VAT & Import Taxes: Weapons - proposed by Mossy Hayes (tfyla)
Taxes New Old
Value added tax (VAT) 1% 5%
Import Tax 99% 99%
Voted: 'No'. Another mental proposal from tfyla. We need to rebuild our treasury atm so relatively high taxes must remain.
