    [quote=Cabinet Reshuffle]
    [color=#000][big][font=Times New Roman][center][b]Prime Minister Fraser Announces A Cabinet Reshuffle[/b]


    Men and women of United Kingdom,

    It's very important that the region's executive branch is run correctly, and I intend to ensure that it is. My Cabinet will continue to be a trusted group of experienced individuals who genuinely want to oversee the betterment of United Kingdom. With this reshuffle, I want to assure the British people that my new Cabinet will continue to effectively govern our great region.

    Tony Benn will be continuing on as Home Secretary, and will also be taking on the Deputy Prime Ministership. Edward Stewart has been an extremely positive influence on me during this term, providing me with his wise insights, however I have advised the Queen to appoint Lord Arundel as a Crown Court Judge. I feel that there is nobody better suited for this position on the bench, and he too has expressed a great interest in the area. I'd like to thank Edward for his assistance over the past three weeks; he has been a valuable member of Cabinet and his input will be missed.

    James Carnarvon has portrayed the image of a perfect Secretary, however he has resigned his post within the executive. I'd like to thank James for his efforts to create a fluid and flexible Foreign Office; they will not be forgotten. To replace James will be George Mountbatten, a former Foreign Secretary (amongst other things). I have full confidence in George's abilities - he will strive for a stronger Foreign Office, I have no doubt about that.

    George W. de Clare, a former Prime Minister of United Kingdom, will become the Attorney General. George is well acquainted with our laws, and should HMG be brought before the court system once more, I'd have full confidence in his abilities to argue our case in a concise and effective manner.

    This Cabinet will govern in your best interests. In the coming weeks their will be important strides towards a more constructive and productive community - that is the primary aim of this Government. It's important that we adapt to the wider NationStates climate, and that we evolve to become a community that works together to accomplish greater things.

    Thank you my good people![/font][/big][/color][/quote]

    [font=times new roman][color=black][big]On August 13th 2016, the Royal Research Society launched a new subsidiary think-tank organization, the Committee on Interregional Affairs (CIA), to focus on "helping [the gov't of NSUK and the British citizenry] better understand the world and the interregional policy choices facing United Kingdom and other regions." It is crucial for NSUK to remain steadfast in the tradition of building relations with other regions and explore areas of common interests especially in the era of centralization of the NS population.

    We welcome any persons from our diplomatic regions to come join us in NSUK and become a Fellow for their region at the CIA. We are committed to learning about the happenings of your region and finding common goals that we can achieve together through policymaking.

    [center][b][big]Election season storms the United Kingdom[/big][/b][/center]
    The United Kingdom has yet again undergone it's bi-monthly ritual to appease the election gods, and on the first of November all British Citizens could vote on who they wanted to sacrifice these elections.

    All in all there were thirteen possible sacrifices, or rather, candidates, spread out through United Kingdom's five constituencies and the Prime Ministerial election, with more than thirty people casting a vote for their preferred candidate and most likely for their least favourite sacrifice. An improvement over September's election where only seven candidates came forward, and later on the election gods came to demand a by-election be held in the Southern England constituency.

    The coalition between the Pragmatic Alliance and the Whig Party, whose leader, Jan van Dijk, decided to abandon the Prime Ministerial race to support sitting Prime Minister, George Mountbatten, was one of the hot topics of the election. Mountbatten, the Pragmatic Alliance Leader, was running for a second term against up-and-coming newcomer Vaclav Vinograd, leader of the Unionist League. Other hot topics of both the races for the House of Commons and for 10 Downing Street included electoral reform and interregional , where the differences between both candidacies for Prime Minister were shown.

    In the end, the only difference between this new session and the previous one was the replacement of Daniel Wilson, who didn't seek re-election, with Akillian Talleyrand, of the Pragmatic Alliance, in Northern England. If you want to delve further into this November's election, feel free to look at the spreadsheet detailing the candidates and the election just below.

    [center][b][big]Media mogul on the rise![/big][/b][/center]
    United Kingdom has its own media mogul and his name is Vaclav Vinograd. Since arriving in the region he has been involved in the media business, a hobby for the aspiring politician, starting in the BBC as the host of his very own talk show, the Very Late Show with Vaclav Vinograd, where the young host sowed the seeds of rabid fandom. Unfortunately this show went on a hiatus and Vaclav moved onto creating his own private media empire in the Vinograd Group, far from government intervention.

    So far Vaclav's endeavours into the media business have been favourable to him, with two publications that get updated with articles quite often. However Vaclav is not without his detractors whose accusations have ranged from him using his media empire to fuel his own party's propaganda machine or that the pale and nocturnal Vaclav is, in fact, a vampire. We tried to contact these critics to get a firsthand opinion on these allegations of political manoeuvring and vampirism but they were conspicuously unavailable for comment.

    We could not go without mentioning Vaclav's very own contender for the title of UK's very own media mogul, Jan van Dijk, host of HARDTalk, a political debate programme, Deputy Prime Minister, former leader of the Whig Party and vampire hunter extraordinaire. While HARDTalk has also gone into a hiatus, the new BBC Director, Arthur Jameson, has already slated many shows for creation, and we know for a fact that our friendly neighbourhood Dutchman will be participating in one of these shows, if not bringing back his show!

    [center][b][big]Political party palooza![/big][/b][/center]
    While elections saw the formation of a coalition between the Pragmatic Alliance and the Whig Party, a coalition which went on to lead the government and make up the majority of the House of Commons, we now have to report that coalition is no more. No greater ill befell the coalition, simply put the leader of the Whig Party, the several times mentioned Jan van Dijk, decided to disband his two-man-band and become the backup singer for the Pragmatic Alliance band.

    Quite shocking that the coalition you just heard about ended, isn't it? Well, worry no more! Word has just come in that the Unionist League has just announced their very own collaboration with the two-man-band known as the Labour Party, led by South Boston Irishmen, previously known as Jeremy Corbyn, previously known as Klaus Mikaelson and previously to that known as South Boston Irishmen.

    Where a coalition falls another shall rise. And where a party disbands another shall be founded! After public outcry about the loss of a four-party system, independent MP and recently appointed Foreign Secretary, Elena, founded her very own party, bringing the Other Party into the fold. Perhaps in the future the Other Party can go on to seek a coalition with some other party, and then the circle shall go on.

    Andrew B. Fraser, longtime member of the United Kingdom and prolific political schemer has announced his retirement from United Kingdom and resigned as both an Administrator and Prince of Wales. He cited a the lose of a sense of novelty that made him invested into United Kingdom and Nationstates, and that if he allowed that feeling to settle in he would eventually fall into a deep slumber of inactivity. As such he had no other choice than to resign and find a renewed interest in Nationstates life.

    Despite having been the Prince of Wales for the past few months since King Charles III crowning, Andrew is best remembered as a many time serving Prime Minister, in fact holding the rank of second longest serving Prime Minister, only behind fellow political maniac, the Dishonourable South Boston Irishmen, the incumbent Secretary of Defence. Having also served in many other positions both in the executive and legislature, perhaps it is in the middle of politics that Andrew finds himself more at home and will find a renewed interest.

    Andrew has however already found a pastime, at least for the time being. Following the latest trend in United Kingdom, Andrew has joined the media boom, joining the ranks of the BBC, which had been somewhat neglected despite the media boom, but has since the publication of an article investigating the truth behind the activity of the media and information business and the two current media moguls, Vaclav Vinograd and South Boston Irishmen, and how they might have much more shadowy plans than anyone could think.

    [center][b][big]A New Prince of Wales[/big][/b][/center]
    With Andrew B. Fraser's resignation as Prince of Wales the United Kingdom saw itself without an immediate heir to the crown. As commoners rushed to nearest betting houses to place their bets on who would be chosen as the first in line to the throne and British aristocracy gossiped on what name the royal baby would have , the royal couple hurried to produce a worthy heir.

    On the 6th of December, the royal baby, a fully grown man in his 20's, was shown to the public for the first time. The new Prince of Wales took the name of James Stewart but he has in the past been known as Daniel Wilson, or if we go back even further, as Tony Benn, and was in the past, like the previous Prince of Wales, a veteran of British politics, having been Prime Minister and having several in many other capacities in the executive and in the legislature, and having been Lord Chamberlain to the King.

    The new Prince of Wales took the seat in the House of Lords that was held by his predecessor, as is customary, but soon announced that he would only be serving in the House of Lords for the remainder of the current term, wanting to take a different role as Prince of Wales, in helping the United Kingdom accommodate new members and undertaking other initiatives.

    The new Prince of Wales also took the occasion of his appointment as Prince of Wales to remind that whoever you are in the United Kingdom, new or old, as long as you contribute to the United Kingdom you will be rewarded accordingly, something that he himself and many other current and past citizens of the United Kingdom have proven to be true.

    United Kingdom is a surging throng of culture activity. In sports, the region has been swept by football fever as the inaugural season of the United Kingdom Premier League has reached its dramatic conclusion. An epic series sweep by Cranford’s pride, Eagles, over the Corbynite Labourers led the birds to victory as the first winners of the King Charles Cup. In Albason, Cranford, fans, clad in black and white sang and danced and drank.

    In holiday news, the Christmas festival for the region, Yuletide, is well under way with games, contests, and quizzes posted. If you’re around the region, come by and get your photo taken on Santa’s lap*. *Please note: this offer is for children only.

    Finally, the region hosted its award show, the Ukies, which was a night of dancing, drinking and dressing up. It was a huge success and many deserving recipients won. Some of the more notable awards included Briton of the Year which went to both Vaclav Vinograd and King Charles III, Best Veteran (HRH Prince James), and, of course, Spam King (Longdendale). The big winner of the night was Vaclav Vinograd, who walked away with nine awards.

    The region is on track to knock its activity goals out of the park! Great success and certainly a cause for Christmas cheer and holiday drinking

  • Memorandum: United Kingdom's Commitment to Being an Interregional Partner
    From: The Office of the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, The. Hon. Lady Victoria E.C. Stewart
    Published: 02 January, 2017

    In recent days, United Kingdom has seen one of its newest and most energized citizens, Vaclav Vinograd, elected Prime Minister, and then chased from the game. Shortly after his election, Mr. Vinograd announced his intention to resign not only his political positions, but also from NationStates altogether. His stated reason: He received a threat to his family members from someone else in the game, a citizen of another region.

    It has now come to light that Mr. Vinograd, at various points in his NationStates career, made comments expressing Nazi sympathies. These comments understandably provoked strong reactions, including the threat that allegedly prompted Mr. Vinograd's decision to leave the game. There are still many questions in need of answers regarding this situation. We do not know, for example, whether Mr. Vinograd's comments were sincere expressions of his belief, or jokes. We do not know whether the threat alleged actually occurred, nor from whom it came.

    The Government of United Kingdom at this point wishes to clarify these events from our perspective. Regardless whether Mr. Vinograd's statements were sincere, they were immature and short-sighted. If he genuinely adheres to a Nazi ideology, then we denounce him; if he was joking, then we condemn the joke as entirely inappropriate. United Kingdom is committed to fostering a gameplay atmosphere that is welcoming to all people. We are signatories to the Coalition Against the Ideology of Nazism, and we aim to enforce strictly our laws against harassment and the Terms of Service for our forum, which prohibit statements that may be construed as threats. That being said, we are also committed to the free exchange of ideas, so long as those ideas are not expressed in a manner that threatens another. Mr. Vinograd's beliefs, whatever they may be, were largely unknown to our citizens. His election as Prime Minister was not an endorsement of any particular real world ideology, and United Kingdom, although open to the exchange of ideas, has never embraced or endorsed a Nazi ideology in its long history.

    Regardless of Mr. Vinograd's beliefs, the Government of United Kingdom feels that threats of harm to one's family are never appropriate. We condemn Mr. Vinograd's harasser, if such harassment occurred, to the same extent that we condemn Mr. Vinograd's actions that prompted the harassment. It is the position of the Government of United Kingdom that if Mr. Vinograd was driven from NationStates by threats, his harassers should be brought to justice. As we continue our investigation into this matter, we ask that our friends and allies assist us by sharing any information that may come to light regarding the identity of Mr. Vinograd's harassers, as well as the nature of the threats. We further request your cooperation in bringing any harassers to justice through your domestic legal systems. We cannot, as a global community, allow threats against individual players to go unchallenged.

    In the days ahead, United Kingdom will be electing a new Prime Minister to replace Mr. Vinograd. The Government looks forward to a peaceful transition, to continued relations with our friends abroad, and to continued defence of the right of all people to participate in NationStates undeterred by intimidation.

    The Hon. Lady Victoria E. C. Stewart

    Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
