A Diplomatic Message To The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland

David silently sipped on his coffee while his lover waved goodbye to him - boarding one of the three diplomatic helicopters that were to head to the UK. David didn't want her to go because he was not sure how the British would react to gaining so much territory but still having a little blemish on their map that was independent from their rule. He didn't know how things would go on from here.

Once in the air, the helicopters radioed in before getting into British waters asking permission to enter their airspace. They said they were, "on a diplomatic mission sent by the president himself" to the leaders of the UK to speak on terms that should be addressed so that it could prevent future conflict. Inside the helicopters together were six pilots, seven diplomats, and five United States Marines. The helicopters had an obvious United States seal bearing the flag.

RAF Brize Norton would be assigned as their final destination.

"Roger that, you have permission to land at RAF Brize Norton.

Provision will be made for transport to Eton for a meeting with Prince William"

OOC

"When are we going to get word that they made it? Do you think they'll get anything accomplished?" Vice President Robert McNeil was walking back and forth in the Round Room of the Orange House. He was in a $500 blue suit that he would normally wear for formal events but he was ready to stand next to David either today or tomorrow and make a speech that - no matter which way it went - would effect the history of the United States for the rest of history. President David O'Reilly sat behind his large oak desk and sipped from a glass bottle of Coca-Cola manufactured and bottled in New Dublin itself. "Susan has never messed anything up, at least to bad, so I am sure this will go sad. I know the worst will not happen but don't give your hopes up for the best Robert."
Suddenly both of their iPhones began to buzz and a simple email titled from Susan which read, [i]We are in Eton. Pray that the meeting goes well. -Susan O'Neil[/i]

[b]In Eton[/b]

After the helicopter ride, Susan and the other diplomats that had their own specialties were guided safely into Eton and eventually to a beautiful building where they would be meeting with Prince William. Before the Prince would arrive she sent an additional email to David and Robert to assure them that she was okay and waiting for the meeting to begin. She had a few documents that could be signed and many proposals that needed yes or no answers.

OOC: I didn't want to RP the Prince but we skipped an awkward ride to Eton.

Prince William was watching out over the town in one of Windsor Castles conference rooms when the Manx delegation entered the room. His cigarette in one hand and a large cup of coffee in the other.
"Thank you Benson, you may leave" he said to the butler who had escorted them inside.

William was dressed in a simple black suit and a red tie with some black shoes. He turned to the waiting diplomats.

"Good morning, I am Prince William, call me Will. Now what sort of a meeting requires so many politicians I wonder?
Please take a seat."

All of the delegates stood out of respect as the Prince entered the room. Susan was in a light blue dress which matched her eyes perfectly. "My name is Susan O'Neil, I am the Chief Diplomat of the United States and come on behalf of President O'Reilly. It is very nice to meet you Will." As they all took a seat Susan began to speak, "We are here for several reasons. A few of them are things we need to sort out to prevent future conflict or problems and the other things - more fragile matters - can be dealt with towards the end if you wouldn't mind.
Now I would like to start with territorial waters. As you know, the United States of The Islands is made up of The Island between Ireland and Great Britain and the Western Isles off of Scotland."

Susan chose her next words carefully, "During the existence of The Kingdom of Ireland, the King and his government had a standing agreement with the United States that the waters between the two nations were shared. In simple terms, it meant that both nations shared sovereign waters so that neither could restrict how the other operated. Now I am not asking for that however I am asking that there be a certain amount of waters that my nations ships may pass through freely. I was told the last thing to agree to would be a 'You may pass through Our waters' deal because the second we could ever get into a future argument that could be held as collateral against us. On the negative side, if we have a straight line of water going from The Island to the Western Isles and from The Island to the south then that would cause problems for you. I was told to propose that there will be a certain amount of water that we territorially share - that being the waters that allow ships to go from The Island to The Western Isles for example. However, the water around the Islands themselves would be our own sovereign waters - not shared waters.

What do you think of this?"

"Not to be rude, its taken five of you to ask if we will be blocking off your territorial waters to the open ocean? Well first of all, there are no shared waters between the USI and the UK. However, we can and will concede a ten mile wide corridor in and out of the Irish sea to the Isle of Man. Your northern Islands internal waters, IE the waters between the UK and the USI will simply be split down the middle, these isnt enough room to argue over it in the North.

Anything Else?"

"The President insisted I bring along a few key members of his cabinent to watch over the meeting, I give you my apologies. Now to continue, the next proposal is a little more bold however we do need to approach it." Susan motioned for Daniel, the Cultural Adviser of the President, to step up. "Nice to meet you your majesty. I am Daniel, the President's Cultural Adviser. Now from what I understand according to the Windsor Doctrine, you will grant the Irish or Scottish Independence if a majority of the population agrees to that. With that being said, I was asked to request that a vote be held for this region of Ireland to join the United States."

"This region was chosen because 93% of the population is from this part of Ireland so we felt that there would be good in uniting these people with so many of them being close relatives that just so happen to live in different nations." The diplomats eagerly awaited for the Prince's word.

OOC: Please talk to me on IRC before you post, I need to ask you something

OOC
Sorry man, not even up for discussion, I ain't segregating Ireland.

IC

The Prince frowned at the request before responding.

"I cannot agree to this request Daniel, the last time the UK segregated Ireland it caused decades of unrest and bloodshed. Moreover the Windsor doctrine only applies to the population of said region, not the population of another region who shares the same culture. Also, before you ask as an alternative, Ireland will not be granted to the USI as a whole either.

There is nothing stopping said relatives catching a ferry or a plane to visit eachother."

OOC: It's okay partner. Worth a try.

IC: Daniel nodded his head, "Very well. Thank you for considering your majesty. Very well, I believe we are done here." Susan stood to shake the Prince's hand, "I am happy we could come to an agreement over territorial waters before anything got ugly. Thank you for your time your majesty."
