HOLLY GILMORE WINS LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR SP LEADER

SP Delegates at the Conference

Results of SP Leadership Election
- Gilmore - 76.4%
- Walcott - 23.6%


Holly Gilmore has won the largest victory of any SP leader, with a stunning 76% of the vote.

“Let us put the past behind us, and look forward to a progressive future!” she said in her victory speech, to a standing ovation, “this is a fresh start for the Socialist Party!”

Walcott's speech was more somber, saying, “I accept that the SP membership has voted in Gilmore with a clear mandate. We must look ahead, and come together, to a brighter future”

During the conference, Samantha Jenkins, the longest serving First Minister of Adubura, became the first elected President of the Socialist Party, with 92.6% of the vote, compared to Jacob Vole of the International Socialists, a Metzist platform within the SP, who only received 7.4% of the vote.

The SP passed various motions at their national conference, including;
1) The establishment of a universal childcare system, for 40 hours a week for children between 1-5
2) Opposition to plans to expand the Port Alexander International Airport to include a fourth terminal, as advocated by the Hosian Social Union
3) The full reversal of public-sector wage cuts by 4395

This marks a notable shift to the left, but it remains to be seen if the federal SP will take note of these radical proposals

Slavery and segregation "a choice" for Iftgoerroon in Saridan, says Manningham-Buller

Image

National Movement chairman Frederick Manningham-Buller, a well-known defender of the controversial regime ruling Mordusia's troubled neighbour, Saridan, has given an explosive television interview in which he claims the Iftgoerroon freely choose slavery and segregation for themselves. To quote the comments in full:

It is absurd to suggest Saridan's system of organisation of society would continue unless the vast majority of Iftgoerroon were essentially happy to go along with it. The thing you need to bear in mind is that the overwhelming majority of ordinary, decent Iftgoerroon recognise that the Saridanis are more civilised than they are, that the Saridanis are their teachers and that they have so much to learn and gain from them. The really beautiful thing about Saridan is that there they are allowing the Iftgoerroon to develop and cultivate themselves at their own pace, in dignity and security. It is a myth that the Saridanis are holding the Iftgoerroon back. Anyone who has been in Saridan for a reasonable period of time knows that if you gave the Iftgoerroon equal rights, civilisation would collapse in that country - not just for the Saridanis, but for the Iftgoerroon themselves.


He later claimed that the forced labour camps in Saridan are "humane and progressive institutions, focused on rehabilitating anti-social elements and giving these people discipline, dignity and self-respect".

However, he warned that "a tiny, tiny minority of Iftgoerroon, encouraged and funded and manipulated by the forces of international communism and global liberalism, are pursuing an agenda of trying to destroy Saridan" and that "they don't care how they do it - they'll try to destroy that country both from the inside or the outside, and through any methods - and it's really sad, because if you look at what Saridan has actually accomplished, it's one of the greatest achievements in modern Terran history".

Image
Bingargy Muloyan, Iftgoeroon athlete

Manningham-Buller's remarks have provoked an angry backlash from critics of the Saridani regime, including from Bingargy Muloyan, an Iftgoeroon athlete and political dissident who fled the country to become a refugee in Mordusia 2 years ago, and is expected to compete as an independent athlete at the upcoming 4390 Winter Olympic games in Rechtenburg. He accused Manningham-Buller of being "an ignorant racist" and "an apologist for the most evil regime in the modern world".

Manningham-Buller has since responded to this criticism by saying Muloyan "only says what he says because he's bribed, everyone knows agents of the Istalian government send him free prostitutes" and that "he ought to be more grateful for what Saridan has done for him, because without the training and sporting opportunities his country gave him, he would not be enjoying such a successful athletic career - well successful for an Iftgoerroon, I mean, if you actually watch him, he's pretty crap but they let him compete because of his colour".


Destruction of Rechtenburg "no big loss", says Manningham-Buller

Respond to news that Saridan is threatening to launch a nuclear attack against Mordusia's capital, Rechtenburg, Frederick Manningham-Buller has tried to downplay the threat, saying "Curtis Spencer is a clever man and a great man, a very great man, and I think he loves the Mordusian people as much as I do, so I don't think he'd do anything like that unless he was really, really forced into it". However, he added that "in the scale of things losing Rechtenburg would be no big loss, because it's so multi-ethnic and multi-cultural it's hardly Mordusian any more - I've long thought we should make a different city the capital".

Manningham-Buller has also said he is going to "pick up the phone to Curtis" and that he would "ask the Staatspresident if he could bomb another country instead".


Manningham-Buller reports Holly Gilmore to police for treason

Image

Yesterday afternoon, just in time for the national 6 o'clock news on the Mordusian Broadcasting Station, Frederick Manningham-Buller summoned the national press to a small police station in eastern Rechtenburg, promising he was about to make "a big announcement". When the time came, he told the journalists and the television cameras that he was going to enter the police station and report for treason the new Socialist Party leader, Holly Gilmore, on the grounds that she has "betrayed our country by attempting to take us into the Seleyan Union, which would abolish our status as an independent and self-governing nation".

A police constable on duty at the station later confirmed that "Mr. Manningham-Buller's report was listened to" but that "no further action will be taken".

An online petition has since been launched calling for Manningham-Buller to be prosecuted for wasting police time. So far it has received nearly half a million signatures.

Alexis Siegfried running for Governor-General


Image

PP Chair Alexis Siegfried has announced that he is running for Governor-General in the upcoming general election:

“In these dark times with a looming we need a Governor-General who dares to put the well-being of Mordusians before his personal ambitions and pull the emergency brake before we end up as a nuclear wasteland owned by the Seleyan Union.”

These are the main issues found on the Siegfied campaign's website:

----------------

+ No to membership in the Seleyan Union. Mordusia should start honoring its proud tradition of being a neutral state.
+ Reintroduction of this of Mordusia. Because it looks better.
+ Prevent war with Saridan at all cost. Re-ratify the Mordusian Neutrality Pact. Tell those well-tanned warmongers to go back to Hawu Mumene.
+ Cut taxes. Cut spending. Take the government out of things that the free market handles better, such as. With neutrality, Mordusia can also make big cuts to the foreign ministry.
+ Increased diversification in the education system.
+ Luthoran should remain the sole official language of Mordusia.
+ Cancel the Olympic games or at least privatize it so tax payers won't have to pay for what seems to be a gigantic fiasco.

NEW PARTY BURSTS ONTO THE SCENE

A new political party, the Democrats, have become the newest party in Mordusian politics. Led by Port Alexander born academic Donovan Meyer, the party advocates for liberty and democracy at all cost and believes in a capitalist economy with parts of the economy in transport and utilities being partly nationalised as well as strong government investment in health, welfare and education. The party cites its founding as a response to the attitude of the socialist party to be in bed with the Hosians and pursuing cuts to welfare as well as the insanity of the National Movement, who Meyer says, needs to be stopped only by the unequivocal power of the ballot box. Meyer has selected Rechtenburg economist Nicole Walker to run for Governor-General and for Meyer to head any future Democratic caucuses in Parliament. For the second round, the Dems will give their support to incumbent Helena Glen-Bartholemew.

“NO WAR WITH SARIDAN, PEACE IN OUR TIME!”
Siegfried elected Governor-General, Progress Party wins 44.4% of seats on an anti-war platform.


Image

Alexis Siegfried had this to say about his movement's historic victory in the last elections:

“Dear Mordusians,

I thanks you in for having - in these dire times - given me the opportunity to serve you as your Governor-General!

Let me tell you right now, that I will do everything I can to ensure that there will be no war with Saridan! This was what I promised you, and this is what I shall deliver!

I will contact the National Movement and ask them to form a coalition government with the Progress Party. Yes, some might view them as somewhat fascist. But - unlike the others they do not seek to bring war and terror and death upon millions of innocents. That is more fascist than any policy I have ever heard the National Movement advocate! Especially since this war is not motivated by any remotely connected to Mordusian national interests, but by alien chiefs from the distant nation of Hawu Mamumnes who - living comfortably on the other side of the planet - wants to send our people to their deaths! I will not have that! We - as a nation - will not have that!

Friends, I may not support all of the policies of the Saridani government. But I am not one of their people, so it is not my call to make. I will try to maintain a peaceful and constructive relationship with all of our neighbours, based on mutual respect for our differences and each others national sovereignty. The only way for us to actually bring any reform and freedom and prosperity for both of our nations is not war, but to negotiate a reliable free trade agreement, and hopefully bring a flourishing business relationship between our nations. I am fully prepared to travel to Saridan and met with Curtis Spencer, if that is what it takes to avert the threat of war. Let there be peace in our time!”

Manningham-Buller "saves the world"

Image
Frederick Manningham-Buller watching the election results come in

National Movement chairman Frederick Manningham-Buller has been met by a mixed chorus of outrage, astonishment and ridicule after boasting live on election night television "I am a very proud man today, a very proud Mordusian man: today I have saved the world".

He was referring to an election result in which more than half of the seats were won by parties vigorously opposed to conflict with Saridan.

Manningham-Buller also proclaimed himself as "a true statesman and a man of peace", claiming "Everyone knows if it wasn't for the National Movement and the campaigning we have doing against the war, then the election would have gone to the pro-war parties, and that would have meant World War - the end of life on earth as we know it".

Not everybody appears to be so impressed with him, however. The Church of Mordusia's Bishop of Rechtenburg Jonathan Mayhew, has denounced Manningham-Buller as "an oafish demagogue" and described voting for him as "an act of spiritual despair". The bishop also described his negative comments about Rechtenburg's multiculturalism as "ignorant and irresponsible" and said his comment about the potential destruction of the city being "no big loss" was "appalling beyond words".

Manningham-Buller's remarks about Rechtenburg have also been criticised by Rechtenburg City Council, which passed a motion condemning him.

In response, Manningham-Buller said the bishop and the council were "idiots who don't understand what they're talking about", lamenting that "they don't seem to be very f**king grateful to me for saving their city from devastation, but that's what liberals are like in this country".


National Movement offers to support minority Progress Party government

The National Movement has indicated it would be willing to prop up a minority Progress Party government on a confidence-and-supply basis. Manningham-Buller stated:

I and my party entered the last election with the aim of winning a parliamentary majority in order to form a National Movement government. Our vote share did significantly increase and we did win more seats, and for this I am grateful to our voters. However, we did not win nearly enough seats to be able to form a National Movement government - and for this, of course, I take full responsibility.

The Progress Party performed spectacularly well in the last election, winning over 28 million votes and over 43% of the vote. Technically they are just short of a majority, but nevertheless, it is overwhelmingly clear that the national mood and the momentum is with the Progress Party. It is also clear that the Mordusian people have voted for peace with Saridan.

I myself have a lot of respect for the Progress Party, and although I have my differences with them, share many of their values. My National Movement colleagues overwhelmingly share the same outlook as me on this.

In our view, it would be in the national interest for the Progress Party to form a minority government, The National Movement will support this administration on a confidence-and-supply basis. We will support them in their bid to make peace with Saridan, and on general legislative matters, we will support them where we think they are right, but constructively oppose where we think they are wrong.

OOC: Well I didn’t exactly give consent to have a labour camp of mine to get attacked by Dankuk now, did I? Besides, this is all I will do until Progress responds to my message concerning peace.

Mordusia condemns Dankuk, wants to make amendments for crimes against Saridan

Image

New Prime Minister & Imperial Seal-Bearer Cornelia Nixon has made a statement on her cabinet's behalf:

“Dear Mordusians and dear international community.

What Dankuk did the last month was nothing less than bragging about a blatant violation of another country's national sovereignty. And although the story was fabricated, is a huge display of irresponsibility on their behalf. This lie could potentially have resulted in Mordusians cites bombed and thousands of our people dead. These are not the values we Mordusians stand for as a nation. We are a nation that rejects violence and supports a peaceful and prosperous future together with all our neighbors, and this is why the Mordusian people chose us to lead them in the last election.

In regards to that speech made by guests of ours from Tirgunia: I would dearly like to remind them that a lot of people view the international communism that they represent as a much bigger threat to freedom than one single nation which has never attacked another sovereign country, despite being faced with constant provocation like international sanctions and threats of invasion. It saddens me to admit that too many countries simply seem to be unable to tell the difference between agreeing about each country's internal politics, and agreeing to respect each country's sovereignty. If the behavior Dankuk was bragging about would be the norm in international politics, “international coalitions” might one day be bombing the capitals of Dankuk, Tirgunia, Istalia or Hawu Mumu.

For us who represent the Mordusians, we will try to achieve a peaceful future with all of our nations. I would like to thank President Curtis Spencer for all the restraint and willingness to negotiate he has shown towards Mordusia, despite the reckless provocations of our previous liberal-socialist governments. We understand very well that there will have to be some reparations made for the damage we've caused Saridan by sanctions and other hostile actions. I have suggested that we should offer them coal mines in the State of Hosamia as a gesture of good will. Maybe we can develop a fruitful business relationship with our neighbour! And let this be clear: All agents of foreign nations engaging in anti-Saridani activities on our soil now pose an existential threat to our lives and our liberty. They will face the possibility of extradition to Saridan, where they will answer for their crimes against this nation, unless they leave our country immediately. Mordusia is a peace-loving traditionally perpetually neutral country and not some battleground for foreign agents of reckless warmongering.

Lastly: we have never had a lot of blacks here in Mordusia. And our colleagues from that country with the unpronounceable name are not exactly doing the general perception of the dark ones a favor, when they seek to persuade us to take an action that would turn parts of our country into a nuclear wasteland. Both Dankuk and Havu Mumahum risk increasing negative attitudes towards other races among white people if they do not stop their reckless and violent behavior on the international stage. Please stop forcing your ideals upon everyone else.”
