Lets set the record straight eh?

Day 1,925, 08:22 Published in United Kingdom Australia by Send love to Plato

Setting the record straight...

Firstly apart from the header and reader count their will be no graphics or logo's in this edition. The reader counter speaks for itself.

I think it is time for the record to be set straight. Today I received a threat from Don Dapper of New Era that the party i am in would be PTO’d by himself and his friends within the Independent Alliance. Don Dapper incase you didn’t know is founder and prominent member within New Era, a party currently third in the eUK party rankings and the second largest party in the eUK Congress.

The reason for this hostile take over was because the party I am current party president of – The Independent Alliance, chose to accept an offer by TUP in this months congress elections. New Era and TUP have a history of hostility so some can understand why some would raise their eyebrow at my shouts for backing TUP considering I have been more than critical of TUP in the past. Now popular belief is that the decision is down to the party president. Not at the Independent Alliance. At our party the membership decide at the party’s conference. The choice was go with TUP and accept their offer or decline and do nothing for this month. The majority chose to accept TUP’s offer. Now my PM exchange with Talon will show I was in favour of the congress elections being too soon and we should just concentrate on our foundations...baring in mind we were only a week old.

Now my position was not down to hostility but wanting the party to have everything in place for next month. If TUP approached me in the future i would be more than happy to put it forward to the membership again. Anyway...and this is the bit New Era do not understand so i shall type it in capitals and not because I am being sarcastic – THE MEMBERS CHOSE...CHOSE...VOICED THEIR OPINION...THEY DECIDED to accept the offer from TUP to run a candidate under the TUP banner. This was not my sole capitals for New Era i repeat – THIS WAS NOT MY SOLE DECISION. Even if I said no then my voice would not have swung the majority’s decision. FACT. The key to democracy is the MAJORITY decides. The majority spoke. I listened because it is THEIR PARTY.

Since this decision i have been personally attacked, flamed and bawwed by New Era. I am big enough to take it to be honest. Klurr has been reported for being a multi, attacked and accused of not writing her own articles by New Era. Today New Era has finally threatened to PTO us because I helped cement a constitution for a party when all...ALL decisions were made by the members. That includes all officers being elected for example THE IRC CHANNEL IS ALWAYS OPEN and we do not kick or ban people for being in another party OUR CONFERENCE IS OPEN AND WAS ATTENDED BY A NEW ERA OFFICER! If we get one more sign up our forum section will be OPEN TO ALL. We are a complete democracy with complete openness. ...

And for this we are attacked, reported and threatened with a hostile take over by New Era...the same New Era I defended when there were talks of a possible PTO many months back.

What right does New Era to decide the policy of a separate party where the decisions are made by their members??? Is this what they mean by ‘’Your party, your game...’’ that if they don’t like your party then they plan a PTO? Is this something New Era feel for all small parties if ever they disagree with them? Can the WRP look forward to this same threat if ever their members decide to run with TUP next month?

Is this the New Era form of democracy? Don and new Era forget that until I planted the seed with regards to PM’ing the membership with a ballot their member NEVER had a say on the party’s direction. That is fact. I hope the New Era membership look at what say they have been allowed up to a few weeks ago then remember this contribution before they flame me for leaving to (and I shall use caps again) HELP CREATE A PARTY WHERE EVERY DECISION IS PUT TO A VOTE. New Era have accused me of setting up the Independent Alliance as a power trip. A power trip where the conference logs will show i never voice my opinion on any topic until the end of the subject so it didn’t seem i was influencing people. A power trip where i helped create the first party where the parties officers were elected. A power trip where I suggested the members decide the rankings of our congress candidates which is the first time a party will have done this. A power trip where I helped create a party where i wanted everything open and accessible to all, even those from other parties.

That to Don dapper and new Era is a power trip.

New Era does have some great people within its walls, I apologise if you think this is directed at you and i hope you get the hell out before it is too late and you yourselves suffer the same treatment in the future...It won’t happen to you? Ask Klurr....ask James Scarlet who was flamed as a spy...ask Ironfists who was also branded a spy by Don and company as well once he decided to leave. That's just happened in the last five weeks to four former members who decided to try other things.

If you agree with how new Era thinks this game should be played then feel free to flame below because you will anyway.

Your Party President, secretary general and founder beg to differ.

FightAndProduce Day 1,925, 08:30

I was accused of being a multi,O RLY NAO?

FightAndProduce Day 1,925, 08:31

It's not New Era's fault.It's a few people within New Era.I've said this before,I'm fine with New Era,but they do have members which are unfriendly.

Claire Louise
Claire Louise Day 1,925, 08:39

Am I the only person who never see's New Era as a whole? I just see the same people "representing" their party by flaming, making up allegations and being general nuisances. Then again, any NE member who is brave enough to stand up and say "actually, you're being a bit of a prat" is likely to get the same treatment that we have. If you don't agree with Don 100%, you're a spy/multi.

WayneKerr Day 1,925, 08:48

No party is viewed as a whole. There all based around the strong visible personalities... Problem is guys give up too easily, the first sign of trouble and they run away. You wanna change how a party runs you gotta have the stomach for the backlash you'll receive.

WayneKerr Day 1,925, 08:39

You have no reason to explain yourself Hugh!

Thomas765 Day 1,925, 08:52

Dapper would try arguing with a wall if someone wrote TUP all over it. Don't let the eUK's scum get to you

wigibob Day 1,925, 09:01

Dapper is a good guy but sometimes he gets worked up and 'falls out' with a fairly high person, I am sure he doesn't really wish any harm
I personally think that it is ok that we have gone our separate ways I wish Independent alliance good luck for the future

WayneKerr Day 1,925, 09:04

He needs to learn to control that tongue of his, lest someone cut it off for him...

Thank you. Don is a nice guy while you agree with him. Leave New Era and you yourself will see the true nature of Don. I speak of experience from myself and others...

Thomas765 Day 1,925, 09:16

I remember making a comment about democracy a few months ago, with no intention of starting an argument but the little shit turned it into how I was a UKRP member and thus how my opinion is irrelevant. Fascism follows him around like an old friend.

Sexagenarian Day 1,925, 13:21

/me hands out the rose tinted spectacles

WayneKerr Day 1,925, 15:36

Indeed Sexagenarian, seems to have been a discount on em at the opticians. All the oldfags seem to sporting a pair lately...

Alphabethis Day 1,925, 09:01

I oppose to any pto or action against Ia, and apology, i think this must be a sort of missunderstanding.

wigibob Day 1,925, 09:03

I don't think so Alpha, I think we have lost another important member of New Era for good though

Send love to Plato
Send love to Plato Day 1,925, 09:10

There is no misunderstanding Alpha it was a clear threat. And some IA members could now begin mistrusting others due to Don's threats. I will not begin a witch hunt and I hope others won't. Don has an illegitimate, distorted and warped view on how democracy works even in a game.

wigibob Day 1,925, 09:16

Don, F****d it up again, starting to get annoyed with him

Sambo112 Day 1,925, 09:30

I'm sure you'll get the support Hugh if a PTO does arise

Hey little hen, when when when, will you lay me an egg for my tea

And indeed Chaz, Hugh is a good egg. He's tried throwing some at my windows, tasted nice.

Topher Fair
Topher Fair Day 1,925, 09:50

Remind me what official position Don Dapper has in New Era? Oh that's right... none.
He is just one member. Exactly who is he going to use to PTO you? Think before you make a drama.

Don may well have said something silly, that is for him to answer for. Nothing New Era can do about it - I can sack him from party jobs he doesn't have if you like?

If we can slander an entire party based off one member, I have LOTS to say about most other parties - not least your pals in TUP. I expect an apolgy for bringing all of New Era into this - most of whom are good hardworking players.

I'm going to hold my tounge now - all I will say is that I am terribly dissapointed in the people invovled in this - you especially Hugh.

wigibob Day 1,925, 09:53

He is right to critisize, Don should not threaten IA if they want to back TUP let them

Send love to Plato
Send love to Plato Day 1,925, 10:14

Yes I am sorry Goku for forcing a SENIOR MEMBER AND FOUNDER of New Era to threaten a PTO against us. I apologise for all the flaming i brought on our members when they votes to work with TUP and New Era members and OFFICERS - Yourself and Alphabethis Took exception to this.

We apologise for Klurr forcing New Era members, especially a NEW ERA OFFICER to complain, bawww and report her for being a multi as well as not writing her own articles.

New Era officers have flamed this, Don is more than a mere member and if you deny that then the eUK will know you are nothing but a simple liar Goku. Please spread your hate and distorted views elsewhere please as this does involve New Era officers and you know it.

And I am disappointed especially by you Goku as i thought you had more intelligence. I was mistaken and again i apologise.

Claire Louise

Hugh - you are absolutely not mistaken hahaha

surferdude Day 1,925, 19:59

now that's an apology

Send love to Plato

And I wish for you all to see the mentality of New Era officers - ''Your pals at TUP'' and all because our membership decided by majority to accept a TUP offer to stand with them for Congress. Goku, party president and CP candidate...I hope you remember this come the 5th of March the eUK

Send love to Plato
Send love to Plato Day 1,925, 10:32

Can I also add that this non party member - Don Dapper was also involved in Pm's with the core group running New Era...odd that as he is not even a member eh Goku?

Topher Fair
Topher Fair Day 1,925, 10:36

I think the root cause of this will either be something to do with Klurr, Vaginas and White Knights - or ingratiating yourself with your new allies.

Send love to Plato
Send love to Plato Day 1,925, 10:37

Yea allies voted by the majority for one congress election. Petty thy name be Goku

Sexagenarian Day 1,925, 13:26

and exactly how long would New Era last if Don wasn't its paymaster, sorry until you can prove otherwise Don IS New Era

Topher Fair
Topher Fair Day 1,925, 13:30

I'm the paymaster.

Sexagenarian Day 1,925, 13:36

So Don is in Poland to line his own selfish pockets and not supply the Army and New Era as he states?

Topher Fair
Topher Fair Day 1,926, 07:43

I supply New Era. I assume Don supplies British Army but I'm not in it anymore.

Dratharr Silkins
Dratharr Silkins Day 1,927, 06:13

Don supplies the British Army. I'm in it, and he often sends members tanks. He's sent me tanks on many occasions.

Hugh is such a baby like most of the UK trollers and haters

and speaks total cr*p there is the transcript , some people get wound up to easy and his only copying most of what I said here about him , about me , Hugh you are such a sleeze , trying to rope New Era into his when im not even in the party , take more low shots mate 🙂

Don nobody believes you are a mere member so please don't make out people are stupid. Did you or did you not threaten a PTO on this party?

Topher Fair
Topher Fair Day 1,925, 10:36

Why are you so against democracy LOL

Send love to Plato
Send love to Plato Day 1,925, 10:38

Why the hate Goku?

Alphabethis Day 1,925, 11:35

sorry mate, this is not a full sized threat, it's more a kind of nasty joke , you can't take this all this seriously. Truly, Don is not the most diplomatic way,... Again, afaik, there's nothing going on , and I think I speak for all, we don't want to do anything against IA or anybody else. It's not our style. BRAGGING , BIG MOUTHS AND MUDSLIDING PROBABLY IS.
