    It would be a fun position. But i don't think the AI players would be confused the same as real people :p

    And while i could except a position, as i do support you individually, If i did except then Mathnerd is probably next in line for opposition leader. and he has PLANS.

    Best if i stay as your opposing number to keep you on your toes. Mathnerd is offline but i'll get in touch with him about being my second in command. Of course if the Aegis group don't play nice i'll just step down as opposition leader. Mathnerd will appear, instantly raising the Opposition meter and go crazy with his plans.

    P.S i admit nothing. Though i myself was comepletly truthtful in that i only gave you those remarks because i believed you as a sole leader could more easily carve out a compromise with the LMP and FAS zealots.

    Unfortunatly RL issues forced me to be less subtle in the last hour of elections. Oh well.

    -

    Thanks LH! With that proclamation i'd like to propose The Aegis enact Emergancy Powers! Perhaps Along with Military Law! Depending on what they do. I can't fully remember. Basically i'm saying do whatever it takes to win the war and get back Ravus-York our holy city.

    I think a member of your coalition has to be the one to suggest it though, But i trust Cull will do the right thing and propose it himself.

    I applaud you for managing to find a good trait for me :lol:

    yeah, I thought of that while typing it up. It was Whosits ALL HAIL BRITINIA post that made me think of that.

    Premier of the British isles (viceroy of Area 1) and Foreign affairs is still not taken. I will nominate Ayra for foreign as he is has the experience from Russian incident.

    Ilduce, remember, I am the President, and I will choose how to select my cabinet. I have someone in mind for the Minister of Foreign Affairs. I have to see if he will accept.

    However, the position of Premier of the British Isles is open, so anyone who is interested in that position can PM me. Your duties will be to help manage the cities and domestic actions of the workers in that territory, and you will be responsible for gathering what information you need yourself (like PMing Lightheart :)).

    I am also looking for a brave soul to travel to Nottingham to rally our soldiers there. After the loss of Ravus-York, I'm sure that our troops could use a boost in morale.

    I will return shortly with an official acceptance speech.

    Edit: Ravus, I am puzzled why you are calling for Emergency Powers and Martial Law (for note, I only think that any party leader need call for it, but I could be wrong). I do not think that either is necessary, and I do not wish to begin my term by using such harsh measures. I will only seek to activate those powers if the Empire is threatened by true disaster.

    Feints within feints within feints....
    What am I best at?

    Also, I would rather like a position within the Whosit administration. I am also currently making a revised President's Hall.

    EDIT: I'm willing to take command of Nottingham.

    Really? I never thought so. Like i stated before being seen to much makes you seem less valueble. I allways try to do whats best for the whole English Empire and that doesn't mean i have to be the leader. Although if it was needed or i thought i could do something i guess i could run again. Never thought i would have much support if i did though.

    It was a suggestion, not an official decision.
    Also now that the election is over do I have permission to go back to Attack Arya?

    That could have been me. I technically got 2 more votes then Whosit...

    He will probably make a better president but still.

    Allright allright calm down. I'm sure later you will realise it was all for the good of england. The EP powers will help win the war. Whosit is perfect to take them BECAUSE he doesn't want them. We can trust he'll give them up later. It will be for the best. If we can use special powers to tip things in our balance and save english lives we should do so.

    Do you mean verbally or just with a good stabbing? Also why only Arya? I half expected you to call me in for my display against the buddists in Arya's term.

    Re: The suggestion: I may be a bit jumpy tonight. I interpreted that as an official statement. Let us both be careful with our language.

    Re: Arya: I would prefer that you show restraint. We are all fighting for the just cause of England. No need to say anything inflamatory.

    Mechaerik: You can sail at dawn's first light. God and Stonehenge bless, brave soldier. :salute:

    Now then, the speech.

    I apologize for the double post, but I didn't want to clutter up my speech post anymore than it already was. :blush:

    Ravus: You do have a point that it may be possible that such extreme measures can save English lives. LH will have to explain those options. However, I still do not want to call for them. At this time, I would only consider accepted Emergency Powers if they were approved by leaders of parties not in my coalition.

    Ilduce, if you ran I doubt you would have won the election. As for you, monk, that doesn't matter. I believe that Whosit can turn it around without EP powers. So, that's irrevlant. I am not your puppet to be used.

    Hey, nice. Hee hee. It looks like I have wings!

    Cull, go easy on Ravus. We all know that he can use the mystical powers of Stonehenge to predict/manipulate events, so there's no shame in getting pushed around by him, a little. :lol:

    Agreed, i don't remember most of them myself. They were highlighted when Arya and Mathnerd were having their standoff.

    From what i can recall Military law stops all sabatoge events and may allow an extra unit in each city. It definatly stops most mild opposition actions but i think it also stops foriegn spies doing anything in LH events.

    For EP i think it does something special along with suspending elections untill you give it up and letting us use a better draft system. Any unit you like for each population point whenever you want it. Could be useful the second we get catapults... I also wonder if this could be used for the town improvements. If we could exchange them for units. There were a few in england not even being used by london or Liverpool.

    I'm sure i can get the GPs on board with the EP plan. It would basically allow them to cause a justified revolt if you didn't give up the powers later. Aysee will probably agree with me although he may end up as a indepenent minister anyway. Arya might not agree but with Myself, Mathnerd and WIM we kinda outvote him. I'm sure Arya too would love the chance to dethrown you in the name of the greater good as well if you refused to give them up.

    -

    @Ilduce, agreeing with Cull. Aegis got a lot of votes because people trusted Whosit, the Consortium got a lot of it's votes merely because they were voting for Aegis, not the consortium.

    @Cull, Don't make a decision that's bad for england just because you are annoyed at me! Lets just agree to disagree for now and let everything settle down after the election.

    @Mechaerik, You are certainly one of the best propaganda people with all your pictures. I know i shamelessly now use your Stonehenge monk one.

    @Whosit, thanks :) but there really arn't any mystical monk powers, there also wasn't any secret plans, don't believe any of that, it all just kind of worked out... Consider it a Stonehenge miracle.

    -

    EDIT: Uggghhhh a sabotage allready!? See this is why you need military law as i just read on page one that it does stop all minor Opposition actions like sabotage. Only big ones like armed revolution can be done and i think most of those will fail unless it's done by the opposition leader.
