This Week in Parliament:

Military Spending - Today, parliament agreed on a military budget of 650 billion dollars. When questioned of where this money is coming from, Oswald Craiggs spoke of the leftover money from the now receded Empire of Pravus Ingrou. Critics of this budget have claimed there is no such money.

Navy Construction - Parliament voted no on a home-made Navy, opting instead to look for sellers of military equipment.

Parliament has agreed to a wealth-based tax system.

Furthermore, among national news, Cannabis was legalized in all three states in the first week of townhouse voting. Empty farm plots are rapidly being bought as the new industry takes a foothold in East-America.

This Week In Parliament:

Due to the "war on the border", parliament quickly passed a plan to okay the development of the military ground forces. Former military bases MCLB Albany, Fort Gordon, Fort Jackson and the Charleston Air Force base. Other former bases are either destroyed or inaccessible due to changing borders and local wars.

This Week in Parliament:

The Parliament voted a near majority to note replace Luna Knight's seat in Upper Parliament after her ascension to the President's cabinet. The seat will remain vacant till the next elections.

Megan Kent spoke with Pariament yesterday to approve a plan for naval and air force construction. Voting begins tomorrow, in which 45% of money placed into the current budget will go to the development for these two sectors.

Parliament did not approve a plan to have a flat tax, instead opting to tax based on wealth. Details of this taxing system can be found on the government website.

Another plan is entering Parliament floor tomorrow to allow government spending on public welfare, giving citizens below the poverty line food stamps and reduced taxes. Already Congressman Ryan York has begun debating the plan, calling for a "strict elimination process", so that drug users, alcohol abusers and criminals will not recieve handouts.

The talk of approving the development of nuclear technology has been halted by the Head Court, with Honorable Diana Sveltna stating, "Nuclear technology development in the public sector will breach the budget limit, which is strictly forbidden."

Parliament approved the MDoAP with Gallifrey at a vote of 224-98.

Convicted kidnapper, sexual predator and murderer Jeremy Wright was sentenced to life in prison with no parol by Judge Joseph Morie of the territory courts yesterday. The nation has called for the judge's decision to be reversed and Jeremy Wright put to death.

The Parliament has noted that Harold Cheve and his administration, along with many other politicians, have been reffering to the head of state as "President" rather than "Prime Minister". In an attempt to curb embarresment, the official title has been changed with approval from 99.9987% of all citizens who voted in Town houses.

This Week In Parliament:

Harold Cheve announced today that his administration would "No longer be withholding recognition of Horde acquired territories." This sudden change of foreign policy drew rough criticism from political enemies, with Oswald Craiggs calling Cheve a, "Weak communist sympathizer, bending easily under pressure." Polls taken showed a steep drop of support for the current president, and with elections upcoming perhaps this decision was short sighted.

This Week In Parliament:


Parliament voted against recognizing The Free Kingdom of Edean, and all and any citizens from that nation will be denied access into the EA-U. Several groups have protested this movement, but the majority of South East Americans, socially conservative as they are, find this uncommon country "inhuman." Thus, with the consent of the masses, the government's policy has proven most popular.

Oswald Craiggs was, surprisingly at that, the leader of the movement to allow this country of foreign creatures to be thought of equally as humans. While the support is minimal, many critics of the government's decision have noted that the liberal choice of view is snowballing.

After the recent broadcast on the regional television, the Triumvirate, represented by Vesari Triumvir Vivian Androcles, made the following reply to the nation of the EA-U:

"The Triumvirate of the Free Kingdom of Edean applauds this decision by the Parliament of the EA-U as it appears to be representative of the will of the people there and hence in line with our mutual values of democratic freedom. While all of us hope that you will one day recognize that we are indeed people as your fair citizen Mr. Craiggs has pointed out - this is a realization that the people themselves must make. While we are not human, we are people and of equal value in that person-hood to other natural persons, or human beings. We would also like to note that we will not be using this declaration as a rightful means of punishing individuals from the EA-U should they decide to come to the Free Kingdom of Edean for business or pleasure. Do be warned however, that Vesari and Oniru do live here and that our own freedom may be perceived as offensive to your culture, but we'd hope you'd enjoy those aspects when you come here rather then fear them. Unless bitten, we don't bite and we've noticed that the same can be said of most humans as well.

Thank you for your time and may our people's of all species coexist together and benefit from one another in a state of peace and on the day you can finally see the truth of who we are, mutual prosperity. In the meantime, we'll just keep on waiting for the world to change, we have a home and we will explore the corners of the Earth in which we are welcome."
