[Mr Crumpets 4 CP] My Foreign Affairs Team

Day 1,899, 02:48 Published in Australia Australia by Mr Crumpets

Good Evening eAustralia,

Since my last minute decision to run for Prime Minister of eAustralia, I've been busy trying to lock in a cabinet team.

So far, I have figured how I will shape my Foreign Affairs team.

Similar to Xavier Griffith, I will have three Ministers of Foreign Affairs, each looking after a certain region.

I promised 'Fresh Faces' to the Foreign Affairs team. I made it clear that didn't mean new players, but moving in players that would bring a different approach to what has happened over the last few months.

Scottty The NUKE - KnightHawks Military Council
Minister for Foreign Affairs - Americas

Scottty's job is to both hold out hand of friendship, but also wield the BIG STICK of punishment.

There's no doubt that relations with the eUSA are not great. If we get an eAustralia friendly CP in the states, then Scotty's first act will be to sit down with the Yanks and see if we can find a way to move forward together.

If we are ignored, his job will be suss out new allies in North and South America that can provide regular battles for our soldiers to rank up and in some cases, give us tactical options.

Meanwhile, the diplomatic door will be SLAMMED SHUT on eChile.

They breached the treaty, they know it, and if they want to talk deals with us again, they will have to earn our trust. It's pointless talking to a nation if a deal has no chance of being enforced correctly.

Larni Kaddlestorm - Australian Revolutionary Party
Minister for Foreign Affairs - Asia-Pacific-Africa

Our Western Flank is going to be a very interesting place next month and Larni will be kept very busy.

First and most obvious is Indonesia. They know Larni has caused them headaches in the past and that's why putting her in charge of that region.

Larni is blunt and that's how the Indonesians should be treated from now on. A simple no BS approach.

Another situation brewing is a possible PTO in eSouth Africa, Larni will monitor that closely.

I see Asia as a region we have long neglected. In the past I had been big advocate of eChina.

Like Scottty, I'll need Larni to see what allies we can make in our closest region and if any of them could give us a tactical edge.

Louise Brookes - Australian Revolutionary Party
Minister for Foreign Affairs - Europe (To be confirmed)

Louise knowns the region well and will be a valuable member of the FA team.

I'll need her to make contact with alliances like ACT and ASGARD and see if they are open to eAustralia joining or possibly just 'partnering' with selected member countries.

EDEN will be breaking up soon, so Louise will be keeping an eye on what country ends up where and would them MPPing be valuable to our nation.

Maybe we'll see ourselves allies again with old friends like Greece or maybe we'll be making new partnerships with countries like Serbia... I'll be wanting Louise to put all options on the table.

I know it can be unnerving to have a CP candidate that hasn't committed to a particular alliance, but the reality is successive governments (rightly at the time) put all our eggs in the CoT basket.

Unfortunately, we were betrayed by the Circle of Traitors.

On the positive, this gives myself or my opponent, Tim_Holtz, a blank canvass to work with.

We are attached to no one, with no responsibilities to another nation.

I believe that Scottty, Larni and Louise can bring me the right pieces of the puzzle to help create a network of allies that we can trust and build friendships with.

Mr Crumpets
Candidate for Prime Minister
Founder, Senator and Party President of the Green and Gold Party

We have a blank canvass - let's see what picture we can paint.

Very good article, good luck MC 😃

Interesting read. Good luck Sir. Threw you a vote. And remember my name.

Thought the idea was to try to win? Guess not 😕

Mr Crumpets
Mr Crumpets Day 1,899, 03:59

In reality TJ, you can't win in this game... there's no stop point... it just keeps on going.

Some days you're on the good side of the coin, the others, the bad.

Lord TJ

Wow. That's so .. true ..

Not exactly the worlds best wording there CH lol.

Fact is that the 'diplomats' have had months and failed. Now its our turn. Watch closely TJ you will learn something.

LanyIsLost Day 1,899, 05:31

Larni, does that include this months "diplomats?"

Mickskitz Day 1,899, 07:15

Lany, this month was an interesting month. I guess "technically" as we are no longer involved with a treaty with Chile, and Indo is invading, that could be seen as a failure. However I don't believe we broke the treaty, I firmly believe that if it was not for Arg involvement that the treaty would still be in place. Do I blame DoFA for that? personally I don't, do you?

Lord TJ
Lord TJ Day 1,899, 07:57

Now you see I was prepared to give it a go .. but Larni messed up again by showing her, Louise and the ARP's true colours. Obviously these two know nothing about what a MoFA does - it is the country's chief diplomat and the fact she says it as if it's something to be disgusted with or frowned upon only adds impetus to the concern over their lack of credentials. They share the same problem - they were raised by the military machine and know no better.

Putting Larni and Louise as MoFAs are like appointing a termination physician as head of Right to Life.

"Larni, does that include this months "diplomats?"

Actually it does Lany. None of it as been entirely stella performances. Its not really their fault, Diplomats have to be nice and try and weasel into things. I am from the military, I do not have the time or the patience to be screwed around with deceptions. sure I can be nice, but I have zero tolerance for idiots.

Cut out the niceties, and get to the point. Don't make deals you can't back up and the most important thing for us to realise that that any negotiations benefit Indo more than us. They do not want to be wasting resources in endless RW's against our forces.

They have done that too much in the past and the economy is a lot worse now. So they will deal with us, or they will not. I have no intention of wasting time over the situation. I will also make it very very clear TJ, Tim, Greg, Withered and the others who have been undermining this present government do not speak on my behalf.

Mick said: "However I don't believe we broke the treaty, I firmly believe that if it was not for Arg involvement that the treaty would still be in place. Do I blame DoFA for that? personally I don't, do you?"

Oh I think the entire thing was a set up from the beginning. Clearly Chile was never interested in making a deal but the diplomatics insisted on continuing the charade. eUSA was a shock but I am more than sure Scottty can advise them in the error of their ways.

Xavier Griffith
Xavier Griffith Day 1,899, 20:22

MC, I actually like it. At least you will have the one thing I didn't have, the ability to choose.

Icetek Day 1,899, 21:39

XG lmao. Please quit sooking.

If you look at the article. "I STAND" means you choose. Hypocritical tool, go back to the circus.

BOUD1CCA Day 1,899, 22:37

Icetek, this is the last post I am going to make concerning you. After your offensive comment regarding Australian citizens who happen to be of middle eastern descent, I am not going to even bother reading your posts & articles.
I urge all Australians to do the same.
You have issues that you need to address, I hope for your sake you do. It would be good if you could & then be able to interact properly with other people.
So goodbye Icetek, I hope things work out for you

BOUD1CCA Day 1,899, 22:43

"Oh I think the entire thing was a set up from the beginning. Clearly Chile was never interested in making a deal"

Larni I also agree - it was a way to keep us off their backs & give them breathing space.
I wish we never stopped fighting them, we would have been no worse off than where we are now.
But having said that, it was the right thing to do to at least try to negotiate with them.
It is one of eRep's ironies that Chile behaves as dishonestly & arrogantly as they have always accused Argentina of behaving. Behaviour that I actually have never observed Argentina doing. What you see is what you get with them.

Icetek Day 1,900, 02:58

Louise, you just now started doing that? LoL your a bit delayed there racist pig.

witherd1 Day 1,900, 03:05

As I said to you in PM MC, I think this FA's team is a HUGE mistake. This will put us back to well behind square one. Our enemies wont even want to talk to us for 3mths again after this I fear. If you are voted in, I truly hope I am wrong, but I will be watching closely. Some people may well be broken entirely next term in eAus.

"They breached the treaty, they know it, and if they want to talk deals with us again, they will have to earn our trust."

I almost die laughing of this.

Common guys, you are nothing, you are the 42º country in monthly damage. In this whole month your damage is equal to the 14% of Chilean damage.

The USA CP is right, you try to act like a big country, but you are nothing. Bye Bye Australia, we will never see you again. I guess that you will not have congress for the next year....

Bye Bye Petty Petty Country.

BOUD1CCA Day 1,900, 06:57

He sounds mad?
Own up, who has caused him such butthurt

Icetek Day 1,900, 16:33

Thinks people care what she says.

Calois. Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name.

at lvl 26 its very doubtful you have any real idea who the people on Crumpet's MoFA team are. There is a reason eIndo and eChile comments are limited dear now go climb back into the box and learn some history lessons.


BOUD1CCA Day 1,900, 19:25

But whats puzzling you
is the nature of my game \o/

I got the reference, do I win a prize - a wet shaved llama would be good
(not for me of course, I could bribe Callumh with it \o/ )

Maegalodonus Day 1,900, 21:28

Oh lol, watch out people, Australia is coming with a big stick and looking for worthy allies...

Those interested raise your hands and please call 0800-Ausfailia.

Back to your kennels you two. 🙂 Don't need silly comments from nobodies. Where are your champions though? Where are the great heroes?

We'll talk with them and see what happens. You clowns can keep to barking from the back yard.
