[Zap4CP] Yes Really, I am Running.

Day 2,077, 12:28 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by Zaphod Beeblebrox IV

When Sarah Palin was questioned a few years back about why she thinks she is suitable for the role of president of the United States, she paused for a moment and replied:
"Well I am a mother, and a United States Citizen."

So Zaphod why would you make a good CP?

Well young Jimmy, I am infertile and a United Kingdom Citizen. And that is good enough for me.

I'm a proper British Patriot innit.

The past few months has seen experienced, well-trained, sensible men take on the role of president. This has been all well and good (well actually it hasn't but that is for another article) but I feel the eUK is in need of a shape up. A president with little experience, with little time to offer, with little motivation to do a good job. Hell I don't even have any policies yet, nor do I plan to get some either. I figure that since it is so mainstream to break your promises these days there is no point in making any.

My God Zaph! You sound like a terrible candidate!

Well this depends on your conception of a good CP-candidate. If you believe that good candidates should have had plenty of experience doing obligatory half-arsed cabinet roles and are sensible chaps who won't make any rash decisions or anything to rock the boat then yes - I am a terrible candidate. What I can offer instead is fun, creativity and genuine fearlessness. I'm not promising it'll be good or beneficial for the country, but it'd sure be different.

I have 3 more Zap4CP articles to come:
The first is my "manifesto" - there will be no policies as such - just me stating everything that is wrong with the country and previous cp styles as a whole. I call it the "hater gonna hate" article.
The second is a Q and A session: I'd like you all to comment below with as many reasons why I'd be a terrible CP below. I shall address them here.
The third is mon cabinet. You can apply by PMing me but I am very elitistpicky.

Oh and remember folks - Carlini touches kids.

Comrade Zap,

This man is a lie. When I requested mod access in the PCP IRC channel I was rejected.

Aren't we all equals? I think some see themselves as more equal than others.

Abraxaas Day 2,078, 09:54

Zaphod all the way!
