Chancellor Alice Teodurschu reaches out to the left

The right wing is massing, everywhere one goes i see neo liberalism. Neo liberalism that threatened to ruin the welfare state that we have built up during these last decades. A welfare state that gives unions the right to fight for their members, that give workers the right to a fair wage and that makes healthcare and education, not just for the few but for the many. Our welfare shall be expanded upon not taken away. That is why, when the coming election rolls around the corner. We wish for the left wing parties to unite after the election. When a center coalition in the name of democracy is no longer the right thing to do. To protect all that which has been built by the people, let us come together. Let us resist the corporate funded party machines.


That is how it sounded when the Chancellor and Imperial-Seal bearer Alice Teodurschu talked before the Youth parties of the three left wing parties in the diet. She proclaimed that the coalition after this election would no longer be something she could support.

We are the ones that can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies. We Are The Party of The Future, We Are The Party For The Future, We Are The Party of The People And For The People. Yes We Can.

Crowd shouting YES WE CAN. YES WE CAN. YES WE CAN.


Thats how it sounded when the newly formed Liberal Republican Parties Chairman Edward Underwood spoke this morning. The audience of approximately 25,000, which had waited hours for him to speak, drowned Underwood out time and again as he described his vision of change in Luthori and called the capital Fort William a place "where good ideas go to die." And the birthplace of corruption. The crowd cheered and chanted Underwood's battle cry of "Yes, we can!"

One political commentator tried to explaine this large and sudden liberal grassroots movment,he said: Support for such a new and young party has arised because for a very long time there has been no true liberal voice in our nation. Politics have been dominated with the classical, left versus right idea, socialist versus conservative. And having a liberal party on the national political scene is simply a brith of fresh air for the Luthorian people. However no one can be certain on what the future holds, chances are that the Liberal Republican Parties hype among young people will soon die out. And they will most likely not show upp to vote in the election in 4407.

WILLIAMS - ERA OF EIGHT PARTY POLITICS HAS ARRIVED

Image

In a statement delivered in the Porterhouse district of Fort William today, the so-called 'Finger of Four', consisting of Roy Maclennan, Dr David Williams, Shirley Jenkins, and Gwynoro Ellis, blasted the existing left-wing parties in Luthori, and announcing the foundation of a new Democratic Socialist Party:

The calamitous outcome of the Socialist Parties Fort William congress demands a new start in Luthori politics. A handful of trade union leaders can now dictate the choice of a future Imperial Seal-Bearer. This is the final straw for parties which have been set on this course for the last twenty years. From the actions of the bellicose minority, to the accusations of corruption from former Members of the Diet such as Cleethorpes – it is now apparent that the socialist parties of Luthori are no longer a parties committed to parliamentary government.

In light of these changes, we propose in this document to begin a new force in the Luthori polity. Ours will be a Council of Democratic Socialism – with a commitment to rally and represent all Luthori who still hold the aforementioned principle of democratic socialism.


Answering questions after the formal declaration, Dr. David Williams, the new party's foreign affairs spokesman, said that the party's aim was to "break the mould" of Luthori politics:

It is our belief that the people of Luthori are tired of the same old seven-party system which has dominated Luthori political life for far too long. Our intention in the Democratic Socialist Party is simple: we intend to break the mould of Luthori politics, and usher in a new age of energetic, eight-party politics.


Phones are reported to have rung continuously at the party's new headquarters in Scrope Street with enquirers seeking information and membership of the new party, but questions remain about this new project. Sir Clement Smith, the former leader of the Liberal Unionist Party which split contentiously from the Liberal Revolutionary Party three years ago, is said to have claimed the new party should be "strangled at birth". The party's new leader, Mr. Jeremy Steel, dismissed the notion, and said he "welcomed" the development, saying he hoped it would help to "democratise and revolutionise the rather staid, dogged situation in which the country now finds itself", but declined to comment on his disgraced predecessor's words.

Snap Election Makes White Rose Largest Party

A snap election, 2 years and 4 months after the last one, has been held after the fall of the Luthori Libertarians' Party, and it has drastically changed the make up of the Imperial Diet.

The White Rose candidate for Governor General, Marquis Samuel, came a very close second without an endorsement, falling behind their Coalition partners in the SDP by just 1 million votes, despite the SDP taking Labou Party support, and winning the first round outside by more than 2.5 million votes. After the second round, Charles Albert Brighton won re-election with 50.99%.

Image

In the Imperial Diet, the White Rose won the most seats on 133 (+18) with the SDP falling back to 117 (-48). The LDU won 77 (+77), the TUSC won 62 (+35) and the Labour Party fell back to 5th place with 56 (-9). This means the centre-left and left hold 235 seats across 3 parties whilst the centre-right and right hold 210 seats across 2 parties.

It is believe the White Rose and SDP Coalition will continue, although who will serve as Chancellor is unknown, with the fall of Keymon from the Imperial Commonwealth, the Coalition faces a large task and has promised to see out the full term.

Centrist Coalition Continues After Snap Election

The SDP-White Rose Coalition continues as the 2 parties immediately put a new Cabinet forward, and the White Rose have raised eyebrows as they give the SDP the lead in the continued Coalition. Marquis Samuel said, 'We decided the SDP should continue to hold the Chancellorship, given the SDP Governor General and the need to continue all the work we started in the last 2 years, including negotiations with Keymon as we suppor the New Democratic Party there.'

Image

The SDP hold the Departments of; Infrastructure & Transport, Health & Social Services, Education & Culture, Trade & Industry and the Home Office. Alice Teodurschu will serve as Chancellor, as the SDP continue to lead the Coalition.

The White Rose hold the Departments of; Science & Technology, Environment & Tourism, Food & Agriculture, Justice, the MoD, the Treasury and the Foreign Office. Frederick Stinson continues to serve as the Deputy Chancellor.

Marquis Celebrates 20 Years Leading White Rose

Marquis Samuel Weston is celebrating 20 years at the head of the White Rose today after taking the reigns from his father in 4384. The White Rose have been performing below expectation but have seen a small resurgence recently, with the Marquis finally holding the Governor-Generalship which every Marquis of the White Rose has held at least once in their tenure as Leader.

The Marquis and his wife attended a ball held in Fort William, along with White Rose Leaders and donors, including the Deputy Chancellor, Frederick Stinson and the Foreign Secretary, Sharon Stinson. At the event, the Marquis said, 'The political scene is becoming more cluttered, there is more competition and options than ever before, and the White Rose must adapt to perform well amongst so many. I am pleased to confirm we will be presenting an extensive WR legislative agenda over the next couple of years, to show what we stand for, and to see what the other parties stand for too.'

The Marquis promised extensive economic and infrastructure reform, bills which will likely fail in the Diet but give the right a political boost ahead of the 4407 elections. After the event, the White Rose confirmed donations in excess of £10 million for the day after many of the rich and wealthy gave the Marquis their support and funds to boost the White Rose who hope to lead the right wing parties into the next term.

As he left the celebration, Frederick Stinson said, 'I want to thank Alice Teodurschu of the SDP, for the years of Centrist Coalition which has lead to a strong, stable and solvent Luthori, one with a surplus, friends, allies and growing influence on the world stage. We believe the only downside of recent years is regulation stifling the free market and hindering growth, jobs and investment. We know this will be the last term of our Coalition with the SDP, we accept it will end in February 4407 and we believe the right will win the next election, and we will work for a stable Coalition with fellow like-minded political parties.'

Alice Teodruschu moves left

Today at the Social Democratic Congress their leader and the leader of the Empire, Alice Teodurschu was reelected party leader. She is the first leader since the founder Frederick Coombes who managed to get the entire Congress to vote for them.
This sudden surge of Support has come from her declaring openly that the White Rose would no longer be a fitting Cabinet partner for the next election. After she declared such several clear left policies has been pushed through the diet without support from their coalition partner.

This will be a new dawn for the grand empire of Luthori. We shall stand together, not oppose each other. We shall nurture that which has been built, to keep the neo liberals greedy little hands away from our rights! Our party has always and will always stand for the Unions and their workers. I will always fight for your right to keep the security that we have built! We shall move forward and expand upon what we have built! If we win this election the Neo Liberals will no longer go without taxation. The rich will no longer be able to buy their luxuary items without paying in to the welfare system

OOC: This happened in January of 4401. These posts are recaps of what happened on those days.

Operation Joint Resolve Moves to Luthori

The Luthori-Lourenne joint military exercises continued with programmes in Luthori, primarily Geharon and Utagia, along the shared border with Ewiges Thalleristisches Reich von Narikaton and along the coasts of Geharon and Tinako. The Foreign Secretary, Sharon Stinson, said,' Joint-Resolve is not only about our commitment to the Northern Council, it is about our commitment to the modernisation of our armed forces and the continue co-operation with our friends and allies. I am hopeful this ushers in a new chapter of Luthori-Lourenne relations.'

Image

DAY 5 & 6:
Location: Border Region, Utagia

The Luthori and Lourennais troops undertook a Caucus where Luthori troops represented the fictional nation of Westopia and Lourennais troops represented the fictional nation of Akarinos. In the scenario, the 2 units entered a conflict after long-simmering tensions between the two neighbours, in part over oil and hydrocarbon resources in the border lands, erupted into war when Luthori sided with Akarinos and began a military campaign across their shared border to “liberate” Westopia citizens, Lourennais brigades additionally played the role of Narikaton allies assisting Westopia in the border dispute with Luthori and Akarinos.

The conflict included disruptions of Westopia public and private computer systems; the emergence of an insurgency called the South Akarinos Peoples’ Army that began attacking Akarinos logistics convoys and lines of supply as it sought an independent state straddling the border of southern Akarinos and northern Westopia; a crime family that took advantage of the chaos to further its goals; and over 5,000 refugees.

The exercise was not just about focus and strength, but also about logistics, modern warfare around cyber attacks, the displacement of people in warfare and unexpected belligerents becoming involved, and how to handle all of these scenarios. The day long exercise started at 6 in the morning and finally came to a close around midnight on the second day, with both forces setting out make shift camps in the countryside of Utagia for the night.

Operation Joint Resolve Goes Coastal

Image

DAY 7 & 8:
Location: Beaches at the White Cliffs of Luthor, Geharon

Another early start awaited the training groups as they convoyed across country to Geharon, for 2 full days of mock military landings off the coast of Geharon, with small naval exercises near the White Cliffs of Luthor included to test the response of naval transports and frigates.

The exercise began with Luthori forces taking up defensive positions along the coast, with mock gun emplacements set up at regular intervals, using the cliffs as a natural edge. The Lourennais forces undertook bombing raids with their air force, drawing the Luthori forces to use their anti-air guns at a moments notice before the Lourenne Army used landing crafts to deploy hundreds of troops on the beach, as well as modified self-propelled amphibious tanks capable of beach travel.

The afternoon saw attack and counter attack as the two forces vied for control of the beaches, with a glider assault preceding the drop of paratroopers from the Lourenne Air Force, before their pathfinders were assaulted by a squadron from the Luthori Air Force rounding out the daylight hours.

The second day saw entrenched and mock hand-to-hand combat as the Lourenne Army advanced up the beaches, and the Luthori Army decided to move their order of battle towards the cliffs for a natural defence of their flank. The Luthori Army used the cliffs to fire down on the Lourenne Army, and problems clearing the beach of obstructions led to them calling a halt to further landings of vehicles, making it a drawn out fire fight for the majority of the afternoon.

The exercise was drawn to a close when the navies of both nations engaged in side by side combat off the coast, with a Luthori submarine sinking one of the Lourenne frigates. The conclusion of the second day saw the army and air force personnel enjoy beach parties whilst the naval training groups prepared for 2 days of naval exercises off the coast of Tinako.
