[CP] Irish Referendum Results and More

Day 1,822, 14:34 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by Talon Karrde

My Friends,

Today’s news is added in with my usual announcements. Make sure you read and vote this article!


Beta will have a detailed article and explanation of this out very shortly, so I won’t repeat what is said there. Instead, I will simply give you the result.

YES: 39
NO: 102

Pretty dismal turnout in my opinion but we’ve PMed everyone and given them 48 hours to respond, can’t say faired than that. And so the winner is No, we won’t be renewing the Ireland swap at this time.


Congress today has passed new legislation on the granting of citizenship, changing us from a system whereby the CP appoints someone to approve or decline, to a congressional committee fulfilling the same role. To me this is a very minor issue but I know some people feel passionate about it. Regardless, there will be a detailed article out shortly explaining what will now happen, and what the implications of this new system will be.


Did you know, oh young players, that you can receive free health every day, courtesy of the NHS? Simply send a private message to Bigant and he’ll sign you up! If you want more info on it and how it works, he’s your port of call. The latest NHS article can be found HERE.

Did you know you can receive your NHS supplies while staying in any military unit of your choice? Being in the NHS unit is not compulsory! So, you could receive supplies from both sources!

AND THIS JUST IN- THE CAP FOR THE NHS IS NOW LEVEL 29! So, if you're level 29 or below, message Bigant and sign up for your free food!


If you are new to the game or just need a hand or some advice, our mentoring system is up and running and as strong as ever. If you need some specific help, please fill in THIS MENTORING FORM GDOC THING . Likewise, if you would like to help out the same form is what you need.


Beta released a guide to our Irish friends HERE, and will very shortly have a detailed article out on the referendum.

The latest MoD orders article is HERE - well worth a read.

Emergy has released another Call to Arms article HERE!

Thomas765 has continued strongly with a MoFA article about the day we didn’t have any battles… until I stepped in and saved the world from imploding in shock. He’s also compiled all our ambassadorial reports for you HERE. If you’re interested in foreign affairs, you can read that HERE.


Here’s a brief report on what each minister has been up to in the last few days. Some of these guys have a consistent portfolio of work so what you read here may be similar or the same from article to article.

Count Drakula- Managing the MoFAs and MoDs, preparing a podcast for you, going great.

Madacaion- Managing the MoH, MoE, Governor and MoLA, and preparing to embark on a project to update the UK wiki. Working very hard! Madacaion will also be picking up a couple of the youth first guys to mentor in his areas and give assignments to.

Thomas765- MoFA media, really informative and excellent reading material. Also contacting foreign dignitaries.

Kravenn- Managing relationships with many countries and ensuring MPP renewals are negotiated smoothly

Jamesw- MoD orders and guidance, a review of how we do our orders to be the most useful possible

Boer Charel- Continuing exactly as before and working with interns.

Carlini- Keeping the finances ticking over, and thoroughly frustrated by the lack of traction on the MM.

Betafoxtrot- Running the Ireland referendum, he PM’d everyone in the nation to get their view.

Bigant- NHS supplying, reporting, mentoring, the works. Totally in his element exactly as before. I want to thank him for being consistently good.


The MoD would like to inform you all that we’ll, for the time being, be continuing with our Wednesday and Sunday strikes, all taking place at 8pm GMT (12:00 Erep time) in #MoD . All UK citizens are welcome to attend and get free supplies.

That’s it for today, stay tuned for more announcements in the future.

We will do what is hard and we will achieve what is great.

Sadly we will not have a swap with Ireland. I voted no too. I did want to give NI to Ireland (fish) for Louth (fruits) and Wexford (connection) for us. But Scotland I didn't want to give, so I voted no to the proposed deal.

Thanks for the good work & information. Voted and shouted.

"Betafoxtrot- Running the Ireland referendum, he PM’d everyone in the nation to get their view."

I was not PM'ed. 😨

GameChanger Day 1,822, 14:41

Have you considered doing a deal with Belgium? they have a fruit region that would be easier to protect from RW's. we could pay them compensation for the lost bonuses, and give the regions back in time for congress each month. It would also be a monthly training war, as a bonus. They would keep Brussels, and give us Flanders and Wallonia

Referendum, what referendum? I received no PM 🙁

GameChanger Day 1,822, 14:58

Whoops, Brussels is the fruit. So it would be giving us Flanders and Brussels, and them keeping Wallonia

I didn't receive a PM either, I only submitted an answer because Neil Lewis posted a link in the shout box

alexg737 Day 1,822, 15:04

"we’ve PMed everyone"

Never got a PM either.

Still voted NO when a party member pointed me in the right direction.

Sexagenarian Day 1,822, 15:21

No PM here either.

Maybe best to give the job to someone competent next time.

Betafoxtrot Day 1,822, 15:27

I didn't PM anyone not in a party because it's practically impossible to find a list of those people, hardly disproves my competency does it? 😛 As for people I missed out, I only had a day to PM the entire country so if I missed a few people in my haste my apologies!

Liam Tatlock

Not sure we would have agreed with the two for one swaps two people have mentioned here!

WayneKerr Day 1,822, 16:02

@Liam, and we never agreed to give away Scotland, so looks like both countries got what they desired.

Liam Tatlock
Liam Tatlock Day 1,822, 16:06

It's a thorny issue. I suspect your populace were concerned at apparently giving your territories away the same as some of ours were, even if there were economic benefits.

Dont think I got a PM either...BUT...hats off to Beta because the amount of PM's he would have had to have sent anyway would be a long daunting task

Also If we need bonuses so bad I say we have a crack at Poland, I think we can take them people

There is no way to find everyone easily, he sent out hundreds of PMs to everyone in a party. If you didn't get one blame the admins for not having a better game.

Bohemond4 Day 1,823, 16:02

There should be a way to mass mail party members in this game. and the whole nation, too.
