[BA] - Lets go again!

Day 1,837, 14:43 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by BigAnt
[BA] - Lets go again!

So it's been a very good month, We've had reforms on the IRC and Forums and a change of admins etc. We've had a Peace Summit to clear some air and identify the problems we have within the UK community. We lowered tax rates on Income Tax. We conquered Azores in the most epic battle the UK ever had! The Month has been packed with war from start to finish and I feel that has greatly unified our nation this month. I feel that I have proven my worth this time around repaying all you who voted for me last month, I ask for your vote and faith once more.

So looking ahead to next month.. I intend to run for a second consecutive term and have plans to solve a few issues we currently have.

Foreign Affairs this month, we have had good points and bad, I want to bring in a more experienced team next month to improve communication with TWO and our allies for the coming month. Along with this I want to again pull in new players to get them the experience of working with our friends abroad. We need a new crop of players to take our country forward. That is something I will push for all positions and departments within my government next month. The fact is we lack a good pool of active players with the enthusiasm to lead out country. Finally we need more Informative MoFA articles so expect them to return next month.

Home Affairs, The ministry will get the push it needs next month. We need more media presence and better guidance for our new players. Again more activities are needed to pull new players on the forums and IRC and this will be the main focus next month. New player guides will be improved and updated, likewise the Wiki.

CS System - We have made some changes to the CS application system recently, using a much easier system of a Gdoc form which can be managed and monitored. We will have congress again look at any further issues for protecting our nation from PTO risks.

MoD - Last Month I promised more war, its fair to say I delivered on that promise. Again for this month I want to continue that focus and keeping our fighters active and happy. But also not forgetting our allies and friends. CTA has been restarted after a brief pause to save cash for the Azores effect.

I will also consider bringing back a single National MU fighting force. Almost like a Special forces which will can use to direct damage directly and fast at battles we need. Last month several MU's lacked speed when changing orders and sometimes key CoTD battles didn't get any MU support.

MoF - Carlini continues to impress us all, his fishing efforts however deserve more return for the hours he spends trying to make the UK rich. Gold prices are mega low at the moment and so we aren't making massive returns. Hopefully next month Gold prices will increase but that of course is out of our control.

Taxes "I will aim to lower taxes slightly in the coming month". That was my promise last month, and we lowered Income Tax. Taxes however will remain the same unless something major happens. Our revenue is so low that reducing tax anymore could harm us.

NHS - I closed the NHS MU last month as planned, because new players where simply not getting the eRep experience and weapon supplies. However NHS continues as a background function. This will of course always remain under my tenure

Finally the IRC/Forums - We have achieved the reforms we wanted for so long. Now we need to promote this functions and get the most use out of them for the future.

Want to become a minister? -

1: Send me a PM direct, Some information about yourself, how active you are, do you use the IRC, forums etc and the Position you are applying for.
2: I will go through them all and contact you on whether you were accepting as Minister or not. If not, don't worry those chosen will need help, and that's another chance for you to prove me wrong 😉

So Positions available:

2 x Minister of Defense
2 x Minister of Home Affairs
2 x Minister of Foreign Affairs
1 x Minister of Finance (2x Deputies)
2 x Minister of Health (2x Deputies)
1 x Minister of Legislative Affairs

Kind Regards,
Big Ant
UKPP Member and Potential CP candidate.

You have my vote Big Ant, shame about Wayne but as one great candidate steps down another takes his place. Until that idiotic impeachment was originally proposed for pure pathetic reasons you were doing a 'bang tidy' job

Good luck because as weve seen from the trolling so far they will make this a very negative election sadly

BigAnt Day 1,838, 01:32

Well they can chose what they want to say, its because of this negative attitude that has fuelled UKPP and NE's rise to the top

The Nation wants a new direct and fresh new players having a chance.

Very disappointed, this was congress' view last time he was CP:

It was ESO that ran him then, this is not a party issue.

Lady Macbeth II
Lady Macbeth II Day 1,838, 03:35

All good, apart from that fag on the picture 😁
might even vote you blindly..

Snugz Day 1,838, 03:36

My 2 pence... Supposedly you had "learned" from your previous account when we ran you for CP... you let a lot of people in ESO down with the last week of your term and it will take more than an apology to regain our trust.

Best of luck anyway o/

jamesw Day 1,838, 03:38

To be fair, at the time, it was pretty much TUP vs ESO, instead of the TUP vs NE-UKPP of today. So in that respect, its not a party issue, its the same issue with different parties.

That said, I am unsure how BA offers a fresh face or hand in Government - all that has changed is UKPP is running him instead of ESO - there is nothing different from last time. And this article contains some basic C&P from Waynes... I think this month I shall be abstaining.

Danie, go read the original thread on the forum. It was proposed by Thomas of then TUP fame and you could drive a truck through each argument...especially the comic one how he should be impeached because of...get over reliance of Poland.

See every single CP for six months for that one

Surely you have played long enough to know just because someone proposed something ingame doesnt mean they back it.

Its also the same thread that a TUP mod threatened myself and handed an infraction to Wayne for...anti-social behaviour lmfao...and all because we had an adults discussion that foreign nationals should not be allowed to enter eUK politics with such huge game changing decisions of a foreign country.

As for Big Ants term, until the impeachment proposal by Thomas there was nothing wrong with his term.

ApronChef Day 1,838, 04:10

It will be hard for you to gain many other parties support due to the timing. [Polls for support are done or are halfway through the process.]

But I wish you GoodLuck 🙂

Lady Macbeth II
Lady Macbeth II Day 1,838, 04:34

So what is ESO doing, Apron? Is Beta running? then why not on the list?

BoatsandHoes Day 1,838, 05:06

I never use the forums myself but I see alot of butt hurt people on here who seem scared of you running and subsequently winning

I hope if your successful you have the guts to make a change and bring a UK War from day 1, if so you got my vote!

helpmeslack Day 1,838, 05:07

difference between UKPP and ESO is that UKPP actually have policies : 3

Thomas765 Day 1,838, 05:24

Best of luck again. Voted (article)

BigAnt Day 1,838, 06:45

Snugz thanks for feedback pal, and I feel the same I needed backup from ESO when I got attacked in public from rival parties and I had nobody in my corner supporting my direction.

Having said that, if given the chance again things will happen differently.

Thanks for well wishes aswel guy much appreciated.

Topher Fair
Topher Fair Day 1,838, 07:08

ApronChef ESO's poll was several days ago right? It was last month. ESO have the earliest of everyone?

ESO didn't seem to back BigAnt up but I know that UKPP and New Era will.

Azzy451 Day 1,838, 07:19

voted and will be voting for our Big slut Ant 🙂

"But if small changes are not adopted to make moderating fair then we may have to explore new avenues."

Could you clarify on this?

BigAnt Day 1,838, 07:40

Azzy \o 😛

Spygon Day 1,838, 07:51

So your supporting a party whos PP pretended to be you and then forged logs to get you impeached.

sorry what?

Also Goku are you going to pretend to be him again as that will be the real support BA needs

Mr Knee
Mr Knee Day 1,838, 07:54

In many ways, BA is damaged goods after what happened last time.... On the other hand, since all the stuff that happened last time, he has certainly been a lot more humble than the build up to his last election. Although I was cynical about the way his supporters built him up last time (and caused me to write in amusement), I do think he actually learnt a lot from the bad experience. If given the chance, I reckon...

Send love to Plato
Send love to Plato Day 1,838, 07:55

New Era hasnt declared as a party who we are backing yet. Personally I am hoping we will put our everything behind Big Ant or whoever is the official UKPP candidate...but it's what the party decides that counts.

Mr Knee
Mr Knee Day 1,838, 07:56

... he will use those experiences to do the country proud (or at least, overturn the negativity about how badly the whole thing ended last time).

Sir Humphrey Appleby
Sir Humphrey Appleby Day 1,838, 07:59

I just think it's funny he's replacing the guy who tried impeaching him for CP : 3

nice to see the same old f*cking trolls again

Minecraft...I never expected you to stoop that low. You know it was passed in game thanks to TUP backing so Wayne proposed it in game. Wayne didnt agree with it and made that clear in the forums. Same with Citizenship requests if it given the go-ahead on the forums it doesnt matter who proposes it.

Though to be fair its the kind of trolling and negativity people have come to expect from TUP/UKRP now

Lily Jayne Summers

Good luck.

Alphabethis Day 1,838, 08:51

supported, it's the best choice we have at the moment, a coalition UKPP-WRP.-NE is our must do.

Aces man
Aces man Day 1,838, 08:51

I see the trolling offensive has began, why increase the division in the eUK? BA 's a good choice keen, active and a nice bloke.

ApronChef Day 1,838, 09:31

@BigAnt: ESO has policies, if you check our Congress article you would see hard policies.
