[MoFA]Commonwealth Agreement

Day 1,537, 09:43 Published in Ireland Ireland by Irish Foreign Ministry

After many summits and several discussions our country finally signed an agreement with Portugal,France and Germany.

This is only the first step for a strong friendship.You can read the whole agreement here:
The Commonwealth agreement.

The Commonwealth not only strengthens these bonds between us, but also increases cooperation in case of any PTO-Danger or in case of lack of resources due to invasion, as you will be able to see in the link above. We also have monthly games between our citizens planned, which will become a good opportunity for interaction between people with different cultural backgrounds - which is what this game is all about.

Rest assured though: as one of the founding countries, Ireland shares the responsibility of not letting this treaty fade away and become one more "Strasbourg Treaty". We will begin to see activity from the Commonwealth already this month.

We have one more final subject that we would like to make very clear. We all know that allies come and go. Many of them are only temporary and easily abandon their friends, like the eUnited Kingdom did in the recent past, trading friends for new "allies". Well, open your eRepublik map and look at them now. These so called "allies" have done nothing for them.

As Irish, we are honored to count on many friends at the moment. Portugal, France and Germany are among them. We hope that this agreement will continue to strengthen these bonds. It will not only become an open door between good neighbours but also another window of cooperation between TERRAN and EDEN countries.

The same announcement is also published from Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs so do not forget to vote this article too and French article here and German article here also.

...and who gave you the authority?

Are not foreign treaties supposed to go through Congress.

And what about congress members who are ELECTED by the TAXPAYING Voter ?
I couldn't find any public discussion ingame or on the national forum on this topic at all.?
So where is your mandate to represent ireland in a treaty, that carves up other nations?

columbia Day 1,537, 10:53

everyone accepted it,only one unit denied to be there on the meeting

columbia Day 1,537, 10:55

Dahda i am not going to play your game not in this article nor in any other,i thought pp choose who will support for congress

I did not accept it (and I'm not saying I wouldn't or would) and I am an elected Congressman

This need a broader consultation than those who the CP decides to allow in on the decision

Colonel Dag
Colonel Dag Day 1,537, 11:00

where is the " game" in a valid question? As an elected congress member i have a right to ask questions as to your authority/ mandate to enter into any such agreement.
So please let the public know.

Nik7deputa Day 2,263, 11:10

you are e"Cypriot" who cares?

Tibulus Day 1,537, 11:05

I am an elected congressman and had access to this treaty via a leak!! Scandal !! : o

Now change the damn name before the British see it. : P

Don't be trolls, everyone was invited to summit, PP of all parties, and we're sure they could talk in name of party members, Libertad stfu, your leader didn't came and said he's not interested so you don't have right to speak

Colonel Dag
Colonel Dag Day 1,537, 11:20

Mr Cp, it's not a military issue here, its more of an eirish political issue here.So congress members has to be involved not MU Leaders, except you're trying to introduce a totalitarian system.
And btw you should work on your attitude a bit.No right to speak? I lold really hard 🙂>

T1nk3r Day 1,537, 11:22

Then run it through congress, and watch it be accepted. Move on Dail'ites, don't start an argument on the front page - eIrish congress politics is held in the forum, start a topic.

Don't be trolls followed by Libertad stfu.

eIrish politics is held in the forum.

So many lol comments. If only they were meant to be funny.

Colonel Dag
Colonel Dag Day 1,537, 11:37

so what, Seanan, are you suggesting this could be an illegitimate document produced outside of the normally acceptable procedure?

Winston Hope Smith
Winston Hope Smith Day 1,537, 11:39

Mufc I am not a troll

I just think you acted beyond your powers.

Tell me a good reason why you ignored Congress in this matter?

Congress btw that has to approve New citizen fee, Donate, Issue Money, VAT & Import Taxes, Income Tax, Minimum wage, President Impeachment, Provide citizenship & Natural Enemy

Why did you think this issue was not for Congress when all the above are?

Nogin the nog
Nogin the nog Day 1,537, 11:47

this agreement will do nothing to harm Ireland, unlike the "Libertad" member who 's MU actively fights against "Ireland & its allies", he is a member of an organisation that clearly states that its members ist loyalty is to the Unit, so how can he be a congressman when his loyalty lies elsewhere??

T1nk3r Day 1,537, 11:50

Shiiii guys, Nogin has entered the topic.

Ran for your lives, you ain't got a hope.

Colonel Dag
Colonel Dag Day 1,537, 11:52

It is not about my military affiliation here at all.
Do you believe as a former CP that this this decisions should be made without congress discussion/ approval?

Winston Hope Smith
Winston Hope Smith Day 1,537, 11:53

Nogin just for the record I am not in Libertad.

Regardless of whether it will or will not harm Ireland I want to know why I, by virtue of my position as a Congressman, was not consulted and given an opportunity to decide on this matter prior to signing.

To me the important point is the process

T1nk3r Day 1,537, 11:54

Guys, the forum. Use it, get off this article.

Our friends in Germany, France and Portugal might think we have as many fags as the eUK.

Colonel Dag
Colonel Dag Day 1,537, 11:59

But then you shouldn't publish articles about treaties with "your friends in Germany, France and Portugal"
before you have taken it to the people of YOUR OWN NATION first.
Just a suggestion.....
Use the forum, get off this article?
Hey, use the forum to PROPOSE a treaty before you sign it, and dont PUBLISH an article.

T1nk3r Day 1,537, 12:05

Daghdha, I didn't know about it until this article. Untangle your knickers and go appease your congressman's member on the forum.

Unwritten law of being a good congressman. When a government does something bad without congress approval, its a scandal. When a government does something good without congress approval, they are doing a good job, you say well done and politely ask them to run it by you next time.

If you want to bring the Constitution into this, I'll say its debatable if they even need to ask Congress.
Now feck off

Anthony Colby
Anthony Colby Day 1,537, 12:07

I am with Winston and Seanan on this one. A discussion should have been held and one still should be as Winston says and the place for that is on the forum as Seanan says.

Colonel Dag

first of all, you might wear knickers, lady, not me. 😛
see you on the forum though

Winston Hope Smith

Just started a topic in the private (private because maybe the CP or MoFA might wish to tell us something not for foreign eyes)

Not sure though as this seems to be all done and dusted...

Maybe we could discuss the neutering of Congress?

U didn't understand that we contacted all parties? Party presidents are responsable for congressmans from party they're sent..They all agreed, why complicate thing so much?

columbia don't have access on forum so she wasn't able to open topic, me neither..

irishbhoy1967 Day 1,537, 14:13

Great work Columbia! Brilliant, Ireland is so lucky to have you! Never mind idiots who do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for the country yet are SO FULL OF SH*T they seem to think they can get all high and mighty caz they got 1 or 2 people apart from themselves who are stupid enough to vote for them, but have done NOTHING else since.

This is truly great work in Ireland's FA Department. The people complaining here do not care about Ireland. The current forum isn't active at all, Govt Ministers and indeed the CP don't even have access to the Dail. If the arseh*les who are complaining cared so much they should have started and moderated a forum themselves. But no, these people want to sit back and do NOTHING like they always have, then complain when someone actually does something that IS GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY. With eejits like these no wonder Irish congress has been successfully oppressed! It's for the good of the nation that idiots who sit on their ar*e doing NOTHING and who care more about being a pretend politician than they do about the country, get no say!

GTFO Ireland you useless c*nts.

What makes you think we don't?

Message from your back pocket Brains. You don't even believe the shit you just posted. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RUN THROUGH CONGRESS!!!!!

irishbhoy1967 Day 1,537, 14:51

You mean the congress that don't even have a forum to discuss things?

Yddub Emwolb
Yddub Emwolb Day 1,537, 14:56

PM's aren't that difficult in this small enation. Are they?

irishbhoy1967 Day 1,537, 15:15

As MoFA I had a pain in my arse PMing congress for things because they were not active on the forum.

Wouldn't blame anyone who already does enough for the place for not having the time to do that. Would you?

Columbia deserves to be applauded for actually doing something unlike the people who are complaining solely for political reasons. I honestly do not care that about 3 people decide they want to start acting like congressmen only when someone does something for the place, so that they can somehow be important for once.

Here's something else about this small enation, the people who get off their ass and sacrifice some of their own spare time for this place are the ones who influence shit, not some fool who got 2 votes in an election. And yea, I do believe that along with everything in my previous posts.

irishbhoy1967 Day 1,537, 15:16

And your horse is butt-fuckin-ugly btw.


Bean&teddy Day 1,537, 15:17

A few points. Firstly yes I was invited to a summit to talk about this treaty however at that time the treaty was just in a rough draft from my understanding (it hadn't even a name yet)
We were asked for idea's and what we thought of the treaty.
I personally mentioned a few things I thought needed changes and afterwards i said apart from that i see no problem with it.
I did not consider this a vote to accept it as, as far as I was concerned the treaty still needed to be changed and readjusted.
There was no vote since the treaty was changed and I was not contacted to attend one.
As WHS said I am not saying I would or would not pass this treaty but do not include me in that vote as I was not around for any voting stage of the final treaty.
