In the tradition of the rule of two, one Speaker is not enough. Two Soeakers, a Speaker and Deputy Speaker is one unit. To ensure that our democratic institution will not grind to a halt, it is imparative that we have a Deputy Speaker to help when the Speaker falls short.Sir Edward Mountain, 4th BaronetCouncillor for the United Kingdom of Great Britain
((I apologise for the delay. April and May have been extremely busy months. The summer is looking to be far better.))Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. Can I congratulate the Premier Commissioner on her stunning and comprehensive victory. It is indeed a good day for Europe and we hope to deliver on the promises made during the election.When I was asked to be the Internal Affairs Commissioner, I was thrilled and honoured. It is a post that the outgoing Internal Affairs Commissioner has done well. I would like to continue the good work that was started by the Internal Affairs Commissioner, specifically in relation to what laws are actually still in effect and what laws have been nullified by either the Constitution, court decisions, or legislation. In terms of reforms in Europe, I would like to see more cooperation between nations on issues. I would work to see the European Council and the European Commission establish channels to ensure that we are looking out for and helping nations adjust laws to stay compliant with the European legislation. I will work to see that the Dromund Kaas situation is brought to a conclusion and that the effected country and refugees receive the attention and care that they so rightfully deserve. It is embarrassing that in a union where we are promoting democracy, culture, Western values, and civilisation that we have a failed state that is the exact opposite of that. We do need to work on security and intelligence as well, so I would like to establish channels between the nations of Europe and the European Council to help share crucial intelligence to prevent any incidents of terror. I will try my best to see that students in Europe have the freedom to participate in a European Union Exchange Programme in which our young people have the ability to study abroad for a semester or school year in a country. It is right and important in this age of globalisation that we allow our students to experience different cultures and societies in pursuit of their dreams. Furthermore, I want to be a public servant that listens to the constituents and nations of Europe and takes very seriously their concerns. Thank you.John Faulkner
Voting is now closed, unfortunately it seems the Gallambrian cllr. submitted the vote a few hours late.Results are as follow: FOR: 5AGAINST: 1 ABSTAIN: 0The European Union Budget, Fiscal Year 2017-2018 is hereby passed. Congratulations to the Premier on getting the budget passed.
Let me be the first to welcome you to this place, and hopefully we will continue to work together in the future.As the Councillor for the United Kingdom, I received a phone call from our Prime Minister, Theresa May. She expressed her outrage at the situation and as you have seen, Parliament has been moving to act and will be holding an emergency session on what to do with Pravoslaviya. It will also be looking at ways to bring the conflict in Dromund Kaas to an end. I think it is important to remember that in the defence of liberty and freedom, sacrifice must be made. Therefore, I want to congratulate the Duxburians and Angleterics who have fought in Dromund Kaas for almost five years now to keep the European Union safe from a fascist regime that was bent on destroying European institutions when it kidnapped the former Premier Commissioner. A rogue state like Dromund Kaas was had to be dealt with and dealt with quickly and it has been. The long part of the struggle is reaching the capital. A regime that had brainwashed citizens like the one in Kaas City did irreparable damage to its people. Which leads me to the humanitarian crisis.There is a bizarre necessity to make sure the people we are taking in are vetted carefully and perhaps even set up with psychiatric treatment because this was a regime that poisoned an entire country for decades and that we act quickly to end the conflict entirely so that the refugees currently in camps and relocated across Europe can return home to their country. I don't think that there can be a clear mandate to put in charge of Dromund Kaas a European solution just yet. Europe together did not go into conflict with Dromund Kaas. The Coalition of the Wiling that included the Duxburian Union, Angleter, the United Kingdom and Rhine Ruhr were the ones who were asked by the rest of Europe to step forward. So, while I agree something must be done about the humanitarian issue, we must do it in tandem with the forces already in the country, as they have not made it all the way to the capital city quite yet.
