Congress Update

Day 1,976, 10:16 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by CottonPicken

Hi, it is time for another update from myself, CottonPicken, and my fellow UKRP’er and good friend LongShotzZ. We will compile all of the proposals since our last update and also, like last time, express our opinions about such proposals. Alright, we'll crack on then.

As you all know - unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks - the eUK has been at war. With war comes a lot of diplomatic work and MPPs being signed. Being fairly new to this game I was pleasantly surprised at just how many countries were willing to stand up and help us when we needed it most. A big thank you to all of them!

All of the MPPs proposed were accepted and here is a list of them:

Some people it appears are not taking the wiping very well and a proposal to Impeach the President was made. This did not pass as most people understand that Jimbojoy was not to blame for the circumstances we found ourselves in and he is doing a good job at getting us back on our feet.
The official result was as follows: 7/28 - Rejected

In between all the MPP proposals there was a Minimum Wage proposal:

Proposed By Prof. J Moriarty
Minimum Wage change from 0.5 GBP to 0.1 GBP
Result 23/7 - Approved

Hey LongShotzZ here, well I voted yes to this proposal, at the time of its proposal we were in a state of war and needed to produce a serious amount of FRM and WRM. The easiest way to produce lots of this at a low cost was to reduce the minimum wage to 0.1 GBP. This proposal was discussed rather a lot before I voted on the matter and it seemed the best thing to do at the time, obviously others felt the same way and so it was passed.

The latest proposal concerns the lowering of tax and this was proposed by Mr/King Woldy.
Value Added Tax (VAT) was to change from 5% down to 1% and Import Tax was proposed to change from 10% to 8%.

I actually went against the grain for this one and voted no. It did not make any impact on the final outcome as so many people believed that this was a good idea and at the time of writing this article it was on the way to pass 30/5. My reason for voting no was mainly because I think that 5% is already low for VAT and I don’t think it needs to be lowered further which might make government income lower. Also if it does not seem to be working people might not take too kindly on an increase in tax. If you wish to discuss my opinions further don’t hesitate on giving me a pm. I will be happy to discuss this matter with anyone.
LongShotzZ however agreed with the majority and voted yes.

That's all for this time. Hope you enjoyed our article.
