SNP Announce Platform, Endorse MacDougall

Postby Sovak111 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 11:47 pm

SUTTON CITY - Today the Sutton National Party announced its full platform, slate of candidates, and endorsement of Royalist First Minister Candidate Neil MacDougall. "We believe we have the right ideas, and right slate of candidates to really make a difference in Sutton," said Andrew Macalester, candidate for the Sutton City East constituency and presumptive party leader. Opinion Polls suggest that Macalester and the SNP might win as many as 7 parliamentary seats in Sutton in the upcoming election, which would immediately make the party the largest on the island.

In addition to a manifesto, the party debuted a new logo featuring a cross reminiscent of the one on Sir Robert Sutton's Coat of Arms

The party's manifesto leans clearly to the social and governmental left - emphasizing big government and a secular approach to social issues. However, as the party is based locally in Sutton, it also calls for greater devolution and federalism of powers to the island. The manifesto reads as follows:

Key policies:
- A plan for an increase in public spending on the Isle of Sutton, including but not limited to the building of a new postsecondary education institution, a new tunnel connecting Sutton with the rest of Roccato, and enlargement of the provicial social safety net.
- An end to the cost of
- Balancing the federal budget, with a recognition that increased spending in Sutton means decreased spending elsewhere.
- More devolved powers for Sutton within the greater provincial infrastructure.
- Increase Suttonite trade both domestically and abroad.
- A living wage with built-in cost-of-living adjustments, by the end of the next Parliament.
- A call on the Hutori government to increase health spending per head of population across the country.
- Support for tax reform that would lower taxes on the lowest income earners and increase taxes on the wealthiest while allowing for simplicity.
- A call for Sutton to have control over immigration to the island.
- Increase public sector pay.
- Ensure the solvency of retirment benefits, even if it means increasing the age of retirement.
- The elimination of Hutori's nuclear arsenal, and any military presence on the Isle of Sutton.
- Ensure free childcare for all.
- The creation of a post-study visa for students from Sutton to work for up to a year in another country before attending college.
- The establishment of a political, labour market, and trade union of member nations.


Given that the party will almost certainly not have enough members of Parliament to be a party necessary for government, Macalester noted that the party would seek to work with the government, whoever leads it. "We will partner with any party and any government that wants to make the lives of the people of Sutton better," said Macalester. The 24-year-old leader has suggested his party will focus mostly on issues dealing with Sutton specifically, but will seek to caucus with Independents and lend party support for local issues in other provinces. "We are a local party, we will contest elections only in Sutton," said the young, ginger Economics PhD Candidate who once led the student protests that evolved into the SNP, "but should any independent candidates win office in other provinces and wish to caucus with us, we will gladly welcome you into the fold and support your policies in your provinces should they align with ours in Sutton."

The party's willingness to work with all others, however, does not outweigh its willingness to see Neil MacDougall in 24 Orange Avenue. "Mister MacDougall has made it clear he wants to spend quite a bit of money in Sutton and plans on supporting our call for a tunnel between Sutton and Roccato. He has made it clear that he wants greater sovereignty for the Island he once called home. It is our turn to make it clear that the SNP supports Mr. MacDougall."

MacDougall and Royalists Seize the Night

Image
Newly Elected First Minister Neil MacDougall Celebrating in his home Province of Roccato & Sutton

The Royalist Party of Hutori is celebrating as it's secured a second mandate and delievered another First Minister to 24 Orange Avenue as Royalist Candidate Neil MacDougall won the First Ministerial race, defeating the Ultrackians on the second ballot, while the Royalist Party of Hutori retained their lead in the House of Parliament by a slim 2 seats, though enough for the governing Coalition to retain their hold on office.

MacDougall campaigned on a concept known as Hutori Works, a long term project to drive the Hutorian economy by creating mega-projects in each province that will drive the local economy, create a sense of unity and bring forward the Hutorian economy by greasing all the individual provinces. MacDougall also promised a robust foreign policy, with Hutori taking further leads in the Northern Council, solidifying ties between Bekenial and Wiel and combating extremism in whatever form it takes.

In his first announcement after his Cabinet was confirmed by the newly sitting Parliament, First Minister MacDougall announced that he and Emperor William VII would first travel to Wiel for the long awaited visit between the Emperor and the Vanukean Monarch Queen Mrjmai while newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs Emily Steuart, travelled to Skalm to begin laying the groundwork for an official state visit to see the newly crowned King and the Kazullian Royal Family; Emperor William VII and the newly crowned King of Kazullia Henry II are cousins through their grandmother, Queen Alexandra, the long time matriarch and Queen of Kazullia prior to the collapse of the last Kingdom, and already rumors have begun swirlling that the Emperor is eyeing a match between his own Crown Prince Henry and Princess Ruth while it's no secret that Crown Prince Edvard has his eyes on Princess Alexandra, the Grand Duchess of Kenai.

More as it develops.

Emperor Arrives in Wiel for State Visit

Emperor's Motorcade Arrives at the Royal Palace in Wiel

His Imperial and Most Excellent Royal Majesty Arrived in Wiel earlier today for his first official state visit with his cousin, Queen Mrjmai, a long awaited meeting that has been expected for months if not years, as apart of Hutori's concentrated efforts at restoring relations between Wiel and Bekenial, and as part of an overall diplomatic blitz launched by leading nation of the Imperial Commonwealth to emerge back on the international scene.

Emperor William VII and First Minister Neil MacDougall was met at the airport by the outgoing Prefect of Vanuku before the Emperor gave a formal inspection of a Jelbek Honour Guard that escorted him, on horseback, into the city. While the Emperor, his wife Empress Consort Rosalind, and their eldest child and heir, Crown Prince Henry, left for the Royal Palace to be present before Queen Mrjmai and their family, MacDougall sat down with Dr. Trmékez to iron our further details or a renewed agreement between Hutori and Vanuku, including bringing the Prefect and Queen to Bekenial and Fort William when they had the chance, renewing a free trade agreement between their two nations, ongoing issues with Imperialist Zardugal and Communist Deltaria, and increased cooperation to stop extremist states from obtaining weapons of mass destruction. Hutori and Vanuku are considered two of the most powerful nations in Terra, with Hutori specifically known to have the largest nuclear stockpile in the world.

Steuart Arrives in Skalm

Image
Minister Emily Steuart Answering Questions Upon Arrival in Kazullia

Newly minted Minister of Foreign Affairs Emily Steaurt has arrived in Skalm for a visit with Statsminister Egland. Hutori and Kazullia are considered Terra's closest allies and partners, who usually through the Northern Council, have often times walked lockstep in almost every diplomatic, military and economic move over the past century, though they have differed in some areas, with Bekenial almost exclusively ignoring the Southern hemisphere until recently and focusing the bulk of it's diplomatic efforts in Artania, Keris and Macon, though Steuart and her boss, First Minister Neil MacDougall, have made it clear they intend on changing that.

Steuart's visit, while to discuss continuing the tight bond between Skalm and Bekenial, is also rumored to be laying the groundwork for an official state visit by Hutori's Royal Family to visit their distant relatives, the newly enthroned Royal Family of Kazullia. Rumors have circulated for months that a double engagement is being planned between Hutorian Crown Prince Henry, the Prince of Adelia, and Kazullian Princess Marie, along with Kazullian Crown Prince Edvald and Hutorian Princess Alexandra, the Grand Duchess of Kenai, interlinking the two Royal Familes into a tight web; made all the tighter from increased rumors of a relationship between Emperor William's youngest daughter, Princess Victoria the Grand Duchess of Lagard, and Lourenne Monarch King Herbert.

SNP to Partner with Regional Candidates, Support McDougall

Postby Sovak111 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 6:11 pm

SUTTON CITY - Sutton Nationalist Party Leader and MP for Sutton East Andrew Macalester today announced the intentions of the SNP to lend their HR and fundraising expertise to independent candidates and those from regional parties during this election cycle. Said Macalester, "We believe that Sutton should be given the right to govern itself and are convinced there are others in Kenai, Roccato, Adelia, Lagard, and Falristan who have the same feelings about their own provinces. Therefore, we pledge SNP logistical support for any independent and regionalist parties that agree to caucus with the SNP in Parliament."

Andrew Macalester, Ph.D. is the leader of the Sutton Nationalist Party. He defended his Dissertation in August.

Macalester also announced that the SNP would again not run a candidate as First Minister for the upcoming elections. "We just don't think the time is right for a First Minister run," said the newly-minted Ph.D. in Economics,"Right now we are focused on supporting the needs of Suttonites. We can't effectively lead Hutori without supporting Sutton first."

The SNP will again endorse the Royalist candidate for First Minister. When asked if Macalester and the SNP planned to renew its support of current First Minister Neil MacDougall in the First Minister election, Macalester responded, "How could we not? The Royalists have invested a lot of time and money into Sutton. We will support any government that supports Sutton." The SNP partnered with the Royalist Party, Socialist Coalition, and Liberals to pass a public works project that will deliver HLR 20 Billion in investment to the island for the purposes of constructing an underground tunnel between Throne and Altar, which should alleviate congestion on the Commonwealth Bridge.

Macalester and the SNP were quite successful in their first terms in office. The party's LODESTAR and GUIDESTAR legislation received broad support in Parliament, and the Party's support was instrumental in securing a co-operation treaty with Vanuku. When asked for the party's platform for 4460, Macalester was quick to answer, "I want to see the University we were promised by the last administration come in to being, I want greater autonomy for Sutton from the provincial government in Kincardine, and I want to see greater global investment on the Isle. We will be introducing legislation that makes all three of these goals attainable in the next Parliament."

Shaw Slams New Parties

Image
Royalist Parliamentary Leader, Tristan Shaw, uses a press conference to slam new parties that made huge gains in the last election.

Some say the Royalists are sore losers, others say they are simply defending the people who already feel as though their voices are not being represented by the new parties that overwhelmingly trumped the Royalists in last year's elections. Royalist Parliamentary Leader, Tristan Shaw, held a press conference earlier today and did not hold back his feelings about the policies being brought forward.

"We were heavily disappointed with the results of the rest election, however, this country is a democracy and we accept the results. However, I don't believe this is what Hutorians asked for. Hutorians didn't ask for a government that puts forward bills that have no focus and only seek to rip apart our nation. They want to cost the taxpayers billions by moving the capital to Sutton City, just to buy the votes of the Sutton Nationalist Party. They want to end our research of chemical and biological weaponry, research that allows us to create defenses for such attacks. They want to end our nuclear program, one of the key things that deters other nations from attacking us. They want to allow pornography on daytime television where it will be readily available for our children to view. They want to force companies to adhere to hiring quotas, instead of hiring those most qualified for the job.

The Royalist Party will always reject irresponsible governance. Even though we may not have earned your vote in the last election, we will still be your voice. We will always defend the hardworking people of this nation from tyrannical socialist governments. Parties who cannot even follow the simple rules of the house, which have been in place for hundreds, if not thousands of years, are clearly not capable of successfully running a government.

Lastly, the new parties may bring an end to the Hutorian Commonwealth, and reform us into a republic, but as long as Royalist members are elected to the House of Parliament, the monarchy will never die in Hutori. LONG LIVE THE EMPEROR!"

SUTTON DECLARES INDEPENDENCE

Postby Sovak111 » Sat Sep 29, 2018 9:53 pm

SUTTON CITY - The Sutton Nationalist Party, backed by members of the Royalist Parties and the Ultrackian Socialist Party today announced the formation of a Provisional Government for a Constitutional Principality of Sutton and declared Independence from the newly-established Republic of Hutori. Within minutes of the declaration, the Provisional Government paramilitaries had seized the entrance and exits to the Commonwealth Bridge and Tunnel and every port facility on the Island - each was taken without a shot fired. rotesters took to the streets in support of the move, as the Owise Nation Reserve immediately pledged its support for the Constitutional Principality and sent its own police force to help maintain order. Sutton MP Andrew Macalester read the following Declaration of the Provisional Government of the Principality of Sutton from the steps of the Royal Post Office in Sutton City:

The PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT of the
CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON to the
SUTTONITE PEOPLE and
ALL THOSE HUTORIANS LOYAL to the CROWN

Suttonite Men and Suttonite Women: In the name of Elyon and of the past generations from which she receives her tradition and identity of Nationhood, Sutton, through all of us here today, cries out to her sons and daughters to the defense of her freedom and of the Monarchy that has ruled justly over the Isle of Sutton for hundreds of years.

Having perfected her discipline over many years, Sutton has waited for the right moment to reclaim her heritage. The Dissolution of the Monarchy in Hutori demands that Sutton declares its independence now and forevermore from the so-called Republic. Sutton will defend her right to a free and independent CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON through whatever means necessary. She shall defend the Crown and the Hosian Principles for which it stands to which she remains loyal with firm conviction and the strength of her people.

The CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON calls on all of her Children to return to her shores to defend those who seek to join her in the cause of Liberty. As a Monarchist state, the CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON welcomes all those loyal to the crown in Kenai, Falristan, Roccato, Adelia and Lagard to her cause. As a Constitutional state, the CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON welcomes all those who value freedom and the rule of law in protection of minority rights to her shores. Sutton’s arms are open to all those who seek to support her in this hour of need.

The CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON is entitled to, and hereby claims, the allegiance of every Suttonite man, woman, and child. She guarantees religious, philosophical, and civil liberty, equal opportunities and rights for all her children, the guarantee of property rights and the ability to pursue a strong and just defense of those rights, an education system built to teach the mind, body and soul, and hereby declares its resolve to pursue prosperity and happiness for all those who call Sutton home.

Until the Shackles of an Alien Government no longer restrain the people of Sutton, the armed forces of the Suttonite cause will not rest in defense of the Suttonite Cause. Until a peaceful solution, or our arms have brought forth the opportunity for a safe and stable establishment of a permanent NATIONAL GOVERNMENT in SUTTON CITY, representative of the whole of Sutton and elected by all of her men and women, the PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT, hereby constituted, will administer the civil and military affairs of the PRINCIPALITY in trust for all the people of Sutton.

We place the SUTTONITE CAUSE under the protection of the Most High Elyon, whose blessing in Hosian Faith we invoke upon our cause. WE pray that no one who serves the CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPALITY of SUTTON will dishonor such a blessing with cowardice, avarice, or inhumane action. This is Sutton’s finest hour. She must be represented by valour, discipline, and faith and by the readiness of her children to sacrifice for the cause of Freedom in support of the Crown. Our destiny is liberty.

Signed on behalf of the PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT:

ANDREW MacCALESTER (MP for SUTTON EAST)
DEREK CARTER (MP for THRONE)
JOHN BARRETT
MELODY PERKINS
MICHAEL HADDINGTON


The Provisional Government is said to be meeting soon to establish its full functions and seek international support.

Royal Conservatives to Support Suttonite Independence

Image
Royal Conservative Party Leader Tristan Shaw receives standing ovation from his caucus and the SNP after announcing his party's support for a free and independent Isle of Sutton.

The Royal Conservative Party sent shock waves through Hutorian politics today as their leader Tristan Shaw announced in the House of Parliament that his party would support Sutton's declaration of independence.

'Mr Speaker,

The Royal Conservative Party supports the freedom of the Suttonite people and the survival of the Hutorian Monarchy. We will support a free Sutton under a constitutional monarchy.'


The Royal Conservatives broke off from the 2 caucus Royalist Party just months ago after the fall of the monarchy. The party is still firmly monarchist and will support any bill that restores the monarchy. Shaw explains that this is one of the key reasons for his support of an independent Sutton.

"The people of Sutton have spoken loud and clear, they want to be their own country. They have also said that they want the House of Steuart-Carmichael to be the Royal Family of Sutton. It is for these reasons that we will support their movement. The Hutorian Throne must live on, and we begin that by restoring it in Sutton. Should all of Hutori allow for the restoration of the monarchy at a later time, we expect Sutton would rejoin the nation."

Military Won't Intervene in Crisis

Image
General Christopher Steuart-Carmichael

In a startling move, Hutori's highest military commander made it abdundantly clear he would not orders military forces in Sutton, noting the Federal Government technically has no authority over him.

Ironically as of right now, I don't have a boss. I and the rest of the men and women in uniform swore an oath first and foremost to the old Emperor and Royal Family, but also most importantly to Hutori itself. I owe no allegiance to the "President" nor the National Assembly. I may not be a legal scholar but likely something that should have been taken care of earlier. Regardless even if they had the authority, I will not expend this military's capabilities as a police force, that's not our job. Our job is to protect Hutori from threats foreign, not domestic. The Republican Coalition created this mess but forcing a Republic on the nation, and yet seemed to think there wouldn't be an issue with it. I am not Hutori's policeman. Hutori's Army, Navy and Air Force, WILL NOT, open fire any a single Hutorian, espceially ones that haven't hurt a single person.


The General has withdrawn all military forces from Sir Robert Sutton Air Force Base, and redirected them to Fort Ross near Langdon. General Steuart-Carmichael noted that the "rebels" on Sutton haven't actually hurt anyone, no military resources were taken or seized, and from all appearances they hadn't broken a law, noting that the Kingdom of Adelia, the Ataraxian Confederation and the Mashacara People, were all distinctly apart of Hutori in their own way, and urged the President and the new Speaker of the Assembly to negotiate with Sutton, but was absolutely firm that the Hutorian Armed Forces would not be involving themselves.
