Why Non-Partisanship within Domestic wings of Government is Essential

Day 1,846, 16:51 by Mr Woldy


Podcast

Firstly I would like to direct any listeners of Bob Save the King to our podcast link, as not too recently episode 2 was released. It is likely that recording will be hindered over crimbo, as Jimbo and I have lives etc. It may also be worth you checking in on the eUK forums from time to time, or subscribing to the podcast for episode updates, as I may be unable to update you all via my paper as of when they are released, and for that I can only apologise.

The podcast can be found here: http://bobsavetheking.podbean.com

And as always, any and all feedback is welcome.




Onto the main point of this article

For the second time in a matter of weeks, accusations have been raised against members of Government involved in the new-player branches of government of using their power to recruit our precious babies.

I personally find this idea completely abhorrent. I care not whether the accusations raised against Big Ant in his capacity as NHS guy, or the more recent ones against Sir Nick are actually true, because that is very much beside the point of this article, and I don't deal in speculation or rumour. I care about the integrity of the MoHA.

I am somewhat emotionally invested in this ministry, as many years ago I personally revolutionised it from a one-man coordinater of regional councils to an expansive cohort of civil servants all working for the betterment of our community. I collectively spent over a year as MoHA, and was involved with it as president, and for many months inbetween taking on roles as under-Minister or apprentice, generally helping where I can.

I speak with some experience when I say the any and all domestic ministries, especially those dealing with new players must remain non-Partisan. For one, using it as a recruitment tool is just underhanded behaviour as it is, offering one group of people an unfair advantage over the other, but that is only really the party-political argument, of which I have no sincere interest.

My main concern with our domestic ministries being exploited by individuals for party aims can be simply explained:

When fostering new players, if we allow ministers to recruit or indoctrinate them towards certain parties, then we set an incredibly negative precedent for those governments that follow. Consider these two scenarios: Either in a 1984-esque style technique, party A 'pulls it off' and through indoctrination completely distorts what you may call 'democratic' elections by exploiting new players into sheep voting for their own party; or even worse party B and Party C take up government positions in following months, and we end up with each month a new minister send new messages to our new players, creating therein in a f*cktonne of confusion and an extremely bitter and negative environment in which our retention will be the only thing to suffer.

I could say more, but pressing circumstances have caused me to publish this much sooner than I had anticipated. Hopefully I have well enough illustrated the fact that if we or anyone allows those branches of government that focus on teaching and retaining new players to become corrupted by party-politicised individuals then we create a partisan environment in which each month those new players will be told different things by different people, which will just blast to bits any consistency within those ministries, costing them not only the credibility which I and others have worked hard to gain and maintain, but the actual retention power and positive sentiment that they currently hold.

Do not let party-politics ruin our ability to recruit and retain new players, because if people join a game and are confronted only with mixed messages and the negative and bitter environment created by those party rivalries (which for so long have been absent from our domestic ministries), they simply won't stay.


Populaton levels

As a final word, although this applies to every country, it is accusations raised here in the UK that have stirred me into publishing this brief and somewhat rushed reasoning for people to keep party-politics out of domestics. I only hope that despite it being rushed, it well enough explains the reasons why we have to keep them non-partisan. We simply should do our best to avoid creating a bitter, confusing environment and if we don't (and inaction on the CP's behalf will promote such behaviour) our population will suffer. We will suffer.

I have given people the benefit of the doubt so far. I only hope that anyone reading this who was contacted by a government official, whether it be via the NHS or MoHA, or who in anyway felt that an official was influencing them to join a specific party, speaks up. Or at the very least, sits back and reconsiders their position without the shadow of indoctrination looming behind you.

And to those involved; I'm sure that at the end of day, in your own party-based ways, you want to make the eUK better. Indoctrinating new players and moving your rivalry into the domestic scene, is not the way to do it.

Thanks for Reading,
HRH King Woldy I,

OBE, KCVS, MC, HRH.

tl;dr don't let partisanship get into the MoHA otherwise people will be too obsessed using it as a recruitment tool rather than a retention tool, and it'll just create bitterness and confusion causing everyone to leave.

Love ya

Where did a minister say "I'm the minister of 'insert fancy title' and I order/direct/tell you to join party 'A', 'B' or 'C'"?

I can't seem to find the example you refer to.

Yeah because Talon never made CP announcements with...DUM DUM DUUUUHHHH (Get it Woldy : D ) a TUP badge on his signature featured in the articles.

Of course Sir Nick wasn't 'butthurt'' as you lot call it so it was a non issue. For me there is no difference between a President featuring his party's logo or Nick doing a seperate UKPP is great article. Both promote their parties while in a Government position.

Dr Hugh Jardon

What a load of BS. You can't take the politics out of government in real life so why expect it here?

This is just another of the expected articles from TUP and its supporters crying because their candidate didn't win. The sooner they join the UKRP in obscurity the better for the eUK it will be.

Why wasn't you this vocal Woldy when Kravenn as TUP PP used information in the forums sensitive issues in a campaign PM on behalf of TUP during a congress election?

This is why TUP and UKRP are struggling in rankings, support and votes...because the double standards, hypocrisy and but hurt is just beyond belief. You can brush us off as being 'populist and fly by night' but the fact remains that your party puts itself before the country.

Had you have come and told me about it I probably would have been, if you haven't noticed I try not to involve myself in the petty quarrels that plague our state these days. I'm on the side of justice you see. I've not mentioned any specific party in my article, so as I say there's no point in treating it like an attack, when really it's a plea that we don't devolve to the same kinda state eIreland used to be in, where there was no unity or community and nothing could ever get out of the Daíl.

Mr Woldy
Mr Woldy Day 1,847, 09:10

Furthermore Hugh, there's nothing stopping you taking it up with those individuals now, but I can't speak for them so there's not much point in asking me about the ins and outs of exactly who has committed every misdemeanour over the past several months

The bar has been set quite low previously on the behaviour of people with responsibility in the UK.

Some of you didn't treat others as you wish to be treated yourselves - you broke the golden rule - we are seeing consequences like this only because the new guys are not as good as hiding their actions.

I'll be asking Nick to stop signing his party articles -MoHA and using Ministry stuff he is partly responsible for Party recruitment.

Again this isn't really a major breach though.

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Day 1,847, 10:22

Woldy my posts were deleted and Iain Keers basically trolled when I brought it up on the forums...true story bro' which is why some people dont have any respect for those now complaining and crying foul play after the way they have acted whilst in power.

"I care not whether the accusations raised against Big Ant in his capacity as NHS guy, or the more recent ones against Sir Nick are actually true, because that is very much beside the point of this article, and I don't deal in speculation or rumour"

If as you say you don't deal in rumour why on earth mention specific names. If people wish to investigate further let them. Please don't cast doubt on integrity based on rumour.

Just an observation

Does everything have to have an 'us and them' mentality Hugh? As MaryamQ said, it's not a hard concept. You either agree that government workers should abide by certain simple rules or we'll find ourselves in the position where government becomes another advertising method used to gain more voters. The only game we'll end up playing in the UK is who can stay in power the longest, with our society becoming more insular, boring, divided and inevitably smaller.
