Interview: CP of United Kingdom

Talon Karrde: Interview as CP of eUK

1. What do you love about your job?

It might sound a little big headed, but I really like being able to order people around 😛 . Seriously though, I like being able to have an idea or see a need, and to deploy people to solve that problem.

2. What are the strengths you bring to the job?

I think my main usefulness as a CP is in diplomacy; because of my dealings with both my own citizens and other diplomats the UK is now in a very good position, with good resources for a country of our size and good relationships with many countries.

I think the other thing that really helps is the amount of friends I have. In most countries now I know a couple of people I can go to and ask for help or information, and equally they know they could do the same with me; contacts are a really important part of the job.

3. If you were to describe your country in three words, what would they be?

Intelligent, funny and beautiful. Incidentally also the qualities I look for in women. Also redheads.

4. Why were you elected?

The last election was a bit of a battle against the other side of UK politics, but I think I won through for three main reasons: A proven track record of being good at the job, being relentlessly nice, and being strong in a few key issue areas.

5. What difficulties does your country face?

I'd say our difficulties are much more internal than external; we have some divisive party politics that could well cause us some problems down the line. The other issue is our population size; the game isn't that appealing to the average Brit and so we never have a massive population, and that somewhat limits us in what we can do.

6. Why should citizens immigrate to your country? What have you to offer?

We're a hoot, that's what we are. I think we're a genuinely fun country to play in, great sense of humour, and we have some pretty cool military units and politics too. Kinda the full package because there's always opportunities to climb the ladder too.

7. Would you be interested in forming an alliance with Ireland?

I think quite a lot would need to change before that could happen. Elements on both sides dislike the other for various reasons, and we've been on oppoosite sides of the divide for a very long time.

8. What is your view on the Irish economy presently?

I don't really know what's going in with the Irish economy at the moment

Thanks to Talon Karrde for his replies

All the Best
Elite C

I think you should've focused more on their political side rather than getting into anything else.
