OK, so I'm in Congress this month, and it's been a bit of a headache so far.
Sven Goran Herp-Derp proposed some stuff about changing how we choose our Speaker, and then didn't show up to vote. All of his proposals failed, by the way. The party pushing them, New Era, had 30% turnout for the vote. The Speaker, Kravenn, wrote about that here. So read that.
Some rogue NE proposals, MPPs, etc. Nothing super exciting except that we signed an MPP with Argentina, which is new since they used an Airstrike on us to get a baby boom during the anniversary of the Falklands War.
I proposed the re-institution of the Honours System. It would be nice to be able to properly recognize our hardest working citizens with appointment to the Order of the eBritish Empire, yea? That discussion is ongoing, feel free to pop by. The highlights are thus:
1. Each Top 5 party will send a representative to the committee
2. The Prime Minister will be on the committee
3. King Woldy will be the non-voting Chairman of the committee
4. The PM may propose one person for an honour as they leave office
5. Each committee member may make nominations for honours
6. A maximum of three honours will be issued each month, not counting the leaving honour from the PM
An additional point is that anyone who maxes out on honours (Grand Cross) will be added to the committee...but to date we've never issued one of those, and it's very unlikely we ever will.
So, I'd encourage you to stop by the forum and discuss this with us - here. I've set it in public discussion, so any and all input is welcome.
Other than that, we're talking about a few other things at the moment, but nothing far enough along to be worth commenting on.
If you have any questions or concerns, drop them in a comment or shoot me a private message in game or on our forum.
