A Proclamation from the Reichskanzler of Greater Germany

There seems to be some confusion on the official position of the Greater Germanic Reich, concerning the current situation in our former protectorates. Therefore, let the following be known:

[b]Albion[/b]

The Greater Germanic Reich does not recognize the Kingdom of Albion; however, we do continue to recognize the nation built under the wise leadership of Jane II. We find the Kingdom of Albion to be disrespectul to that legacy, as evident by their communications with the French government. With that being said, the German government, hereby, gives this false hooligan government forty eight hours to leave the British Protectorate of the Greater Germanic Reich ,or it will be declared a terrorist organization, which will be dealt with accordingly.

[b]Ireland[/b]

The Greater Germanic Reich will recognize the new government of Ireland for the time-being. However, as a diplomatic precaution, the current treaty between us is suspended until further notice, as a minor precaution. We'd be willing to meet with the new Irish government in Berlin to discuss the future of the nation.

"That's your cue, get on a plane, chop chop," the Prime Minister ordered Sir Hawkwood.

"I'm a general, not a diplomat."

"In that case refrain from saying anything vulgar and you'll do fine."

"Sir, I'm a gentleman first, a gentleman hardly uses course language."

"See, you are quite the diplomat and you never knew it," the Prime Minister chortles.

[b]Berlin[/b]

Sir Johnathan Hawkwood, acting as the Special Representative of the Duchy of Northern Ireland and the Minister of Foreign Affairs O'Leary, wait patiently as their flight prepares to land. A message was sent in advance to the Greater German Reich informing them of the two men and their assistants pending arrival. They are travelling commercially, unarmed, and equipped with the finest suits to be found on the racks of a Belfast tailor as they aim to impress with their fine manners and well dressed deportment at the very least.

Dominic sat in his office, head in hands before looking around his surroundings. He had been King for less than six months and the Germans were stripping Albion of its Government over a conversation with the french Queen. He had no choice, he would have to abdicate and leave the running of Government to Parliament until the Germans were more clear with what it was they wanted.

Picking up a pen, he signed the notice of abdication and handed it to an MP who would deliver it to Parliament to make it official. All military units were commanded to remain in their barracks and place all weapons into the armouries. All planes were grounded and all warships were to be kept in port with all crews with the exception of armed security to prevent the ships being stolen, were told to return home until new orders came through.

A reply was made to the Office of the Reichskanzler informing him that the King had abdicated and his aids had resigned and were making arrangments to leave the country within the day and that Parliament would continue to function until Albions fate was decided by the German Government. If the decision was made to dissolve Albion back into a German protectorate, then Parliament would be dissolved, if it was permitted to remain Independant, then it would seek out a new King to lead the country.

The reply would also include the question of Scotlands status and it was made clear that Parliament would not contest German policy if England was permitted to remain Independant, but Scotland was to return to German a protectorate.

In short, the reply would seek to clarify the status of Albion and its Independance, it would make clear that if Germany wanted to make Scotland a German protectorate, then Parliament would support the decision. It made clear that if Albion was to have its Independence revoked, then Parliament would work with German authorities in the handover of power before dissolving themselves. Finally it would look to the Reichskanzler's better nature, if he had one, to allow at least England to remain Independant, if not united with Scotland as Albion.

Members of Parliament would wait in session for the reply from Germany.

Reichskanzler Stahl dispatched a list of requirements to the British government.

[quote]I. Scotland and all former territories of Mull are to return to Germanic Protectorate Status

II. Albion must be formed into a non-devolved constituent country within a constitutional monarchy

III. Any sort of relations with France will not tolerated, and if done, will be seen as an act of war against the Greater Germanic Reich

[b]Private Message to Germany From His Majesty King Adama[/b]
The Kingdom of Brazil is a new nation in this world, though we have not looked to foreign relations yet we have a question in relation to your most recent statement to the British. Does the Germanic declaration to the British, regarding to the French,encompass all nations or just the British?[/center][/quote]


OOC: Assuming this was a public thing, if not wipe it.

Reichskanzler Stahl dispatched a list of requirements to the British government.
[/quote]

Lord Stark would begin the process of contacting local German forces who had not yet withdrawn from England to begin planning the handover of power in Scotland and Mull aswell as withdrawing the elements of his Army back south of the wall to make the transition as smooth as possible. France was placed on a diplomatic blacklist.

With Parliament still in session, leader of the majority holding labour party, Max Fisher, was named defacto Prime Minister. After a series of debates and councils over the following weeks,Parliament decided that Lord Robert Baratheon would be named the new King of Albion with Lord Balon Greyjoy to replace the positon of warden of the east. King Roberts powers would be restricted, with Parliament having the final word on a situation, but they were not stripped. He was permitted to remain active in politics, but he could not supercede Parliaments authority with his own,

Finally, as England and Scotland were no longer united, the 1606 flag was replaced as the flag of Albion and it reverted back to the flag of St George.

After reaching an agreement with the British government, the sixty thousand troops located in Britain began to withdraw into Scotland and Mull to secure the re-established protectorates. Afterwards, a minor note was sent to Max Fisher.

[quote]To Whom This May Concern,

While the British government will receive traditional freedoms, the following will be supervised by the Reich Government.

Foreign Affairs: The Foreign Affairs of Great Britain shall be restricted to states friendly or neutral to the German nation. A list from the Reich Ministry of European Affairs will be dispatched listing these nations.

In addition, the use of Private Military Companies, such as Blackwatch, will not be permitted in the Germanic Sphere of Influence.

Signed,

Reich Minister of European Affairs
Ardus Kaine[/quote]

Sir Hawkwood and his companions arrived in Berlin and quickly checked into a hotel. Once they settled in the relocated to a nearby German Beer Hall to settle the question of the difference between German and Irish Lager. The night passes rapidly, many large pints were downed, and at one point the Irish delegation is found loudly arguing with a group of rabid foaming at the mouth German football fans. The appropriate action was taken and the German footballers were challenged to a drinking contest and after everyone staggered out of the Beer Hall at five in the morning Sir Hawkwood was heard saying, "I hope to god this meeting isn't tomorrow..."

[size="1"]OOC: I'm going to jump to the actual meeting..[/size]

"So, who am I meeting with again?" Reichspräsident Eva Schmidt asked as she walked down the main corridor to the meeting area

Ardus Kaine replied, "You're meeting with the Irish delegation. Stahl would have done it, but he's taking care of other issues."

Eva rolled her eyes and walked into the meeting area. "Welcome to the Reich. I do hope your trip was a delightful one." She reached forward to individually shake the Irish delegate's hands. "Please follow me."

She walked down the corridor and into her private meeting room inside of the Reich Chancellery.

"Please have a seat and let us get started."

"I shall not waste a moment more of your time in regards to Ireland. The Irish people have voted, the wish to be one nation. My government is willing to take up the charge of leading the Irish into something resembling a coherent government and as a member of the European community."

Eva nodded, "Your words sound nice, but the previous Irish government promised us the same and went up in flames. Our stance this time is simple. We do not want to support a government that will collapse into thin air. Then, there were the national security concerns. The last government thought it would be wise to hand over sensitive lands to a foreign entity. We want a nation that's dependable, and we want a nation reliable enough to be apart of our European Community."

"Only time will be able to build up the level of trust that will thoroughly convince all parties of our sincerity. Our short term plan calls for a reunification of the two Irish nations. This will be followed by a complete reorganization of the Irish Defense Force that is quite simply lacking in many ways. My government has no interests in giving away anymore of Ireland to anyone. All past deals will be examined with a critical eye and a decision will be rendered as to the future of those deals. Our foreign policy is simple, we seek to establish contact with nations in Europe that do not have a recent history of rabble rousing and certainly not nations that have a war criminal in their leadership, France springs to mind and that odious Dalian De Vicadila person."

ooc- in short, no idea what you are talking about when it comes to what PD did with whoever it was. Haven't paid that much attention to Ireland to know.

Eva nodded, "You have a good head on your shoulder, which is something that is severely lacking in today's world. Your Ireland can continue; however, we must warn you. The Reich will defend it's interest, even if it means placing forces in your country. However, as long as you remain friendly to the German nation, we will remain friendly towards you."

"Ireland looks forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Germany. Do not think we forgot the German assistance to our struggle for independence during our times of troubles. Our memory is a long one and there will come a time when Ireland will find a way to repay our debts to Germany. Thank you for your time and consideration," Sir Hawkwood responded before departing to return to Belfast and the wrath of his wife over the drunken football antics.
