A private jet soared over the Baltic, entering the North Sea. As it prepared to enter British airspace, preparations were made for landings at London.
Inside, the chief negotiator to the Islands, Alyx Kikkomen sipped her vodka. Today was gonna be a tough negotiating challenge, and she needed to have the blood alcohol level for some true Finnish stateswomanship. She didn't carry much with her. There was nothing to chart, nothing to discuss.
Finnish goals for the discussion were simple: the Republic of Finland had a defense interest in the Arctic. To that end, a base in the islands controlled by the UK must be gained to ensure the safety of Lappland and the Finnish interior. Finland was willing to negotiate to whatever end it needed to for those islands. Getting the good price, was Alyx Kikkomen's job.

As the plane touched down, she quickly [s]stumbled?[/s] descended the plane and spoke English with something that resembled a [s]drunken slur[/s] South-Finno-Swedish accent.

The Limosine driver meeting the Finnish delegate at Heathrow would drive them to Downing Street. Usually one of the Royals would have dealt with the matter, but with Alfred granting Parliament more power, he would let the Prime Minister deal with the meeting.

On arrival to Downing Street several armed police officers would escort Alyx into the building and to the conference room. Arthur was already seated behind his desk sipping some scotch when Alyx would enter the room.

"Greetings Ms Kikkomen, please take a seat and help yourself to the scotch, I can get a different drink for you wish. Now, to what do I owe the pleasure to this visit?"

"Thank you. Water is fine," she burped.
"Today, we must examine the common interests of our nationssssssss," she slurred, "we have a desire for a base in the Svalbard archipelago. You have a desire for security. In our rapid militarizations, we have... expanded our capability to project power beyond our borders..... and here," she pulls out a tablet computer, "here are the plannnsss."
With that.. she collapsed into a stupor.
The tablet sprung to live, and a secure videoconference session began on its screen. On it, Korhonen appeared from his manor.
"What a great Finnish stateswoman, always leaving it up to the Finnish men."
He paused, looking down through the tablet lenses.
"she looks okay. I'll have her disciplined when she returns. Now, what do you think of our situation?"

Arthur sat non pulsed looked at the paralytic, now asleep Finnish woman. Looking down at the tablet at Mr Korhonen he thought carefully before responding.

"That is one way of looking at it certainly. I'm Arthur Thwaites, Prime Minister, might O have the pleasure of knowing your own name Sir?

As for the situation it certainly merits my attention. Sweden and Toruns illegal military action is certainly cause for concern. Britain owes Finland a blood debt as it happens, they fought in our war of Independance against American Imperialists. Infact, Admiral Alexi Joona was the Finnish expeditionary forces Commander. He is now Britains greatest modern war hero. Which leads me to y next question. What exactly is it I can help you with?"

"The names Korhonen. Few need to know the rest.
Finland, in our recent war, has been shown its weaknesses in national defense. We must be able to preserve the integrity of our borders in the next conflict that will inevitably roll around into this god-forsaken war. We seek a base in the Arctic, in your Svalbard reason. We are willing to offer an alliance for defense in exchange for a suitable base for our defense forces."

"A mutual defence alliance would certainly benefit us both, however Finlad is in what I like to call a ball ache of a location. It is a long standing policy of Germany to shut down the Baltic entrance and it's airspace if hostilities break out. Would We be permitted to maintain an airbase in Finland with space for one of our strategic bomber wings and two squadrons of strike aircraft? It would allow an instant response to an attack on Finland and avoids the diplomatic bureaucracy I would have to go through to get past German policy. Finland would be of course permitted to maintain a base in Britain aswell for the same reasons.

We believe that this is a fantastic proposition.
Should this be all formally acknowledged in a treaty?

"Indeed, would you like to draw up the treaty Sir?"

"Huh kinky." The Ursalian representative mumbled with a perverted smile as he bent down, picked the passed out body of the Finnish representative, placed her over his shoulder, and walked out of the room.

Arthur was once again non pulsed as the American Carried the woman out of his room. After silently observing him struggle with her body out of the room he called security.

"Yeah, I want a platoon of SAS troops guarding downing street inside and out. Yes, every possible security measure"
