  • The House of Lords agrees to ban burkas … and Darth Vader helmets?

    Proposal branding ridiculous, even by members of the House behind it

    March 19th, 2018 8:50 am| by Christian W ||MBC News

    Today the House of Lords has revealed an unanimously proposal to ban facial-covering burka and niqab headwear. 

    According to a document from the Speaker of the House of Lords, Jhon Hood, the ban extends to items of clothing that cover the face. That could be hats, hoodies, masks, fake beards – so under those parameters, you could be arrested for walking down the street in a Darth Vader helmet.

    The proposal has been criticised as being awkward and “crazy”, even by members of the Lower House who supported the ban.

    “It’s fine to demand that people show their faces in relevant situations, such as on the bus, or at airport and demonstrations. But banning fake beards and glasses just shows how crazy this is,” Justin Trudeau, the leader of the Liberal Party, told MBC News.

    “We should be focusing out efforts on the areas in this country that need addressing, instead of engaging in tokenism policy that can’t be enforced in reality.”

    The House of Lords has stipulated in the proposal that anyone breaching the ban could face up to three months in prison, or a fine of 1,000 Monten Pounds.

    The proposal does include exceptions for those covering their face for “approved purposes”, such as Santa Clauses working in shopping centres.

    It would also be permitted to drive while wearing facial-covering headwear, as it is considered a private space.

  • Montenbourg authorities distance themselves from Shane Raimi asylum

    Omnibus accused Shane Raimi and other members of the Omnibus government of rebellion, coup and sedition after the rise of ex-president Rhaegar Vladimir

    March 20th, 2018 8:50 am| by Christian W ||MBC News

    HM Government has distanced from the asylum granted of ousted Ominbus leader Shane Raimi, who arrived in the city of Montague. 

    Home Secretary said Raimi had been granted asylum by the Royal Household during the presidency of Rhaegar Vladimir so “now our country has done its mission in keeping things stable and is open to retrieve the asylum to Mr. Raimi ”, reports the MBC News.   

    Raimi is in Montague mainly for the violent acts ocurred in Omnibus during the presidency of Rhaegar. He fled Omnibus last February to avoid backlash by the Omnibus authorities. Currently he is living in Montague. 

    Montenbourg authorities said on today that they are examining whether he could be arrested and extradited in during this new period of presidency in Omnibus. 

    Catherine Banks, Foreign Relations Secretary said Raimi had no official function. “Montenbourg and the european community understand that the only partner for dialogue is Omnibus,” she said. “Of course he can speak his mind while he is here in Montague,” the newspaper quotes Banks as saying. “Freedom of expression is one of the most important human rights.”

    Banks also says that by staying in the Montenbourgian city Raimi wants to “use Montague reputation as now the capital of human rights and diplomacy to give his cause an international touch, situation that now has been settled by a new government in Omnibus. Its time to call an extradition process, and retrieve him his refugee condition”. 

  • Montenbourg authorities say Uber drivers should be treated as ‘employees’

    For the first time, the Montenbourg's Chancellor of Exchequer has clearly indicated that Uber taxi drivers should be classed as employees rather than self-employed.

    March 20th, 2018 8:50 am| by Christian W ||MBC News

    In an press conference statement on Montenbourg public television, the Rt. Hon. Claire Underwood, Chancellor of Exchequer, gave the legal opinion that according to the conditions that bind drivers to Uber, they should be regarded as employees rather than independent contractors.

    In assuming responsibility for the passenger service it provides, then issuing drivers with “far-reaching instructions”, Uber – or the taxi companies that it subcontracts – effectively acts as an employer to the drivers, Underwood says.

    The legal opinion, which is not binding but which is generally heeded by Montenbourg local authorities, follows an industrial dispute in Montague and Castletown in December 2017 in which various drivers sub-contracted by Uber went on strike.

    The drivers were protesting conditions under which intermediary companies, contracted by Uber, paid them salaries that were unacceptably low – sometimes as low as ten monten pounds an hour. Some of the drivers were Duxburians and Icholasens.

    According to the Chancellor statement, however, such a system (which allowed Uber to avoid acting as a regulated employer of the drivers) would no longer be valid: the partner companies would need a licence to hire out their personnel, and would also need to guarantee social security contributions.

    The trade union Dribert, which was heavily involved in last year’s strike, welcomed the Chancellor's decision and said in a press release Monday that “Uber is to be regarded as an employer – with all the associated duties this brings”.

    Uber told MBC News that it maintains a constructive and open dialogue with all authorities involved.

  • Government’s bullying tribunal not up to scratch, say families

    The new tribunal has been criticised for being too slow and for being too timid about taking concrete action

    March 20th, 2018 8:50 am| by Christian W ||MBC News

    Back in August 2017, the government set up a national tribunal to deal with cases of bullying that gave people a forum via which to complain if they felt a school or institution had not done enough to stop the problem.

    The tribunal has powers to sanction schools and also punish them economically if their recommendations are not acted upon. 

    Up until now, the tribunal has received 18 complaints and two of them have been processed. In both cases, the tribunal has decided to refer the complaints back to the relevant schools so they can decide whether bullying has taken place, reports MBC News.

    This decision – and the length of time used to process the cases – has been criticised by the parent and pupil organisation Fathers and Mothers of Schools.

    “This is an unfortunate result because as parents, you are left sitting and thinking: ‘Okay, and what are they now going to do with my child?’, said the organisation’s chair, Melissa Jensein.

    “What we need in order for a child to thrive is action – not someone having to decide all over again whether it was bullying or not,” she added.

    The association for Montenbourg school students, Studenz, feels that the system is much too complicated to use in its present form.

    “We’ve always been worried that it could become too bureaucratic and that has now been confirmed,” said the Jacob Nielsen, the chair of the organisation.

    “It is a major problem if pupils leave a school before a bullying case has even been processed,” he added.

    Justice admits that there is room for improvement. “If a pupil who is not thriving has to go through this long process, then it is not good enough,” said Rt. Hon. Alexander Grimaldi, Lord Chancellor of Justice.

    “It is definitely worth looking at what we can do differently to implement a more flexible working procedure that will benefit the children.”

  • Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs is Resigning from Office.


  •  15 Things You Didn't Know About Catherine Banks.

    Following the resignation of HM Secretary of Foreign Office here is our report about this woman in service for almost 20 years.

    March 26th, 2018 8:50 am| by Christian W ||MBC News

    Perhaps Catherine Banks, the first woman to serve as Montenbourg Secretary of State, best described her historic appointment in her 2003 memoir, Madam Secretary: “It was almost…inconceivable that someone who had not held a government job until she was thirty-nine years old and the mother of three would become the highest-ranking woman in Montenbourg history. Well into adulthood, I was never supposed to be what I became."

    Her impressive credentials include professor, ambassador, Montague Times best-selling author and current chairperson of the Classical Monarchist Institute for International Affairs as well as the chair of the Banks Group, a global strategy business. The perseverance she has demonstrated throughout her career is inspiring for anyone, man or woman. In honor of her resignation, here are a few things you should know about Banks and her unconventional path to Montenbourg politics.


    Katerinea Korbel was born in Icholasen on May 15, 1937, to Anna Spieglová and Josef Korbel. But the name “Catherine” didn’t stick for long; various family members called her Kat, Katlee, or Katleina throughout her youth. When Banks began to study French, she decided she liked that language’s version of her nickname: Catherine. Still, Banks never legally changed her name and is officially Katerinea Korbel.


    Banks studied Political Science at Bosco Unversity, graduating with honors in 1959. In the years prior to graduation, became naturalized citizen in 1957. And met her future husband, Josepht Banks, during a summer internship at the Naples Post. Banks says it was tradition for Bosco women to get married on graduation day. Despite this, she waited three days after receiving her diploma to marry Josepht.


    The Banks moved several times for Joseph’s career. By 1961 the couple had already lived in Sudaks, Castletown and Londerville before moving to New Monten, where their twins, Alice and Anne, were born. In 1962 the family moved to Jamestown, where Catherine studied Russian and International Relations at a division of Hopkins University. When they moved back to Jamestown in 1963, Banks continued her studies at Durnham University and earned a certificate in Russian and an M.A. in 1968, and a Ph.D. in 1976. Her third daughter, Katharine, was born in 1967.


    Banks became more involved with politics when her family moved back to Montague in 1968. From 1976 to 1978, she served as Representative Edmund S. Muskie’s chief legislative assistant of the Council of State. And in 1978, Otok Brzezinski, one of her professors from Durnham and then Security Advisor to Prime Minister James Carter, chose Catherine as Brzezinski’s liaison to the Council of State.


    Banks joined Bosco University’s School of Foreign Service as a research professor of International Affairs, where she taught undergraduate and graduate courses. She also served as director of the Women in Foreign Service program.


    MTB Ambassador to the World Assembly banks voted in favor of a WA resolution on August 10, 1995

    Bank's work in international affairs led to her working as foreign policy adviser to both Prime Minister Michael Ferraro in 1984 and Kristian Dukakis in 1988, Despite this, after Ferraro won, he nominated Banks to be the Montenbourg Ambassador to the World Assembly. Though she was often one of the few women in the room (and many times, the only one), she did not sit silently.


    On December 5, 1996, Prime Minister Ferraro nominated Bank the 64th Secretary of State. She was unanimously confirmed by Council and Lords on January 23, 1997. Banks wrote of the experience that Ferraro" … gave me the opportunity that no other individual, male or female, has had to serve full terms both as ambassador to the World Assembly and as Secretary of State.” At the time of her appointment, Banks was the highest-ranking woman in the history of the Montenbourg government.


  • Is It Time for Anderson to Resign Yet?

    Following Catherine Banks resignation, whats left for the Prime Minister to resign. He has 15 years as PM, and hasn't resign, is it age?.

    March 26th, 2018 3:50 pm| by Christy Amanpour ||MBC News

    Today, Montenbourg learned that the son of its prime minister is an embarrassment and The Prime Minister rumors of sexual misconduct.

    That evening, a famous youtube recording of Anderson’s son Chester partying in strip clubs and making lewd jokes. It produced a scandal. The prime minister was forced to respond, of course, to this affair. No doubt, it was a distraction — and from something important: According to reports, the same night the younger Anderson was exposed as an imbecile. But also today, to hear lawyers tell it, If all the sexual allegations now swirling around the Government House turn out to be true, Prime Minister Anderson may be a candidate for sex addiction therapy. But feminists will still have been right to resist pressure by the right wing and  the media to call for his resignation or impeachment. The pressure came from another case of the double standard.

    For one thing, if the Prime Minister had behaved with comparable insensitivity toward environmentalists, and at the same time remained their most crucial champion and bulwark against an anti-environmental Council of State, would they be expected to desert him? I don't think so. If Prime Minister Anderson were as vital to  preserving freedom of speech as he is to preserving reproductive freedom, would journalists be condemned as "inconsistent" for refusing to suggest he resign? Forget it.

    For another, there was and is a difference between the accusations against Mr. Anderson and those against Job Packwood and Rence Thomas, between the experiences reported by Kaley Willey and Ana Hill. Commentators might stop puzzling over the President's favorable poll ratings, especially among women, if they understood the common-sense guideline to sexual behavior that came out of the women's movement 30 years ago: no means no; yes means yes.

    It's the basis of sexual harassment law. It also explains why the media's obsession with sex qua sex is offensive to some, titillating to many and beside the point to almost everybody. Like most feminists, most Montenbourgians become  concerned about sexual behavior when someone's will has been violated; that is, when "no" hasn't been accepted as an answer. Let's look at what seem to be the most damaging allegations, those made by Kaley Willey. Not only was she Mr. Anderson political supporter, but she is  also old enough to be Monica Prinsky mother, a better media spokeswoman for  herself than Pepa Jones, and a survivor of family tragedy, struggling to pay  her dead husband's debts.

    What if Mr. Anderson lied under oath about some or all of the above? According to polls, many Montenbourgians assume he did. There seems to be sympathy for keeping private sexual behavior private. Perhaps we have a responsibility to make it O.K. for politicians to tell the truth -- providing they are respectful of "no means no; yes means yes" -- and still be able to enter high office, including the Prime Minister's Office.

    Until then, we will disqualify energy and talent the country needs -- as we are doing right now.



  • Anderson Resignation Is Rumored; Underwood's as possible Successor's

    Following a heated twitter debate, rumors commence.

    March 26th, 2018 5:50 pm| by Christy Amanpour ||MBC News

    Insistent speculation swept Montague today that Rt. Hon. William Anderson will retire resign as Prime Minister. Judging from Anderson's past habit of confounding forecasters, it still was anybody’s guess. Four Montague newspapers headlined the report he would step down as Prime Minister and make way for Frank Underwood, current Secretary of Defence who opposed a Liberal, Green coalition. This happens due to tabloids of sex scandal accusing Anderson of misbehaving with his son Chester, and also happens to be before Montenbourg's budget is presented to Parliament April 19. These reports included an eight-column banner headline in the Daily Montague, owned by Lord Henri Masoni, Underwood intimate friend and financial supporter of the CMP, also husband of the Duchess of New Monten. His newspapers heretofore have shied away from the periodic, and inaccurate, rash of Anderson-to-quil stories. An official spokesman for the 80-year-old Prime Minister refused either to confirm or deny the reports today. He added however, “eventually it's bound to be true." 

    The Express said that according to present plans Anderson will hand over the top job to Underwood the first week of April just before the Prime Minister leaves for an already-announced Luz da Libertados holiday April 6. Quoting “well-informed opinion in Montague," the Montague Times paper added that Underwood would combine the premier's and defence secretary’s office for a while—then hand over the Foreign Office to Adolf Heinz-Stamer, present Leader of the Opposition. Its also rumored that Claire Underwood, could be in the ticket for Prime Minister.


    William Anderson resigns from Montenbourg's Parliment.

    March 27th, 2018 8:50 pm| by Christy Amanpour ||MBC News

    From world leader to the wilderness in just days. He has resigned, bringing an abrupt end to his ten-year premiership, just a few year after he clinched a surprise majority in the general election with a coalition, a visibly emotional Anderson, standing outside Premier Residence on Tuesday morning alongside his wife, Samantha, said: “The will of the Montenbourgian people is an instruction that must be delivered.” In the statement announcing his intention to step down, Anderson highlighted the key achievements of his premiership, including rebuilding the economy after the financial crisis and legislating to allow gay marriage.

    The process of chossing his succesor begins, with CMP's MPs selecting a two-person shortlist, which will then be presented to the party’s members in the country to make a final decision.

    Party modernisers are likely to rally around an alternative candidate – perhaps John Adams, Joseph Biden, Xavier Bettel or Claire Underwood – in an effort to stop Francis Underwood and other resignation campaigners, who tend to be on the right of the party.

    The scale of anger about the secretary of defence role in the resignation campaign was laid bare at the heated debates. Also is rumored that the nobility might be controlling the CMP candidates. 

  • Who will replace William Anderson as Prime Minister? The full rundown of favourites in the CMP leadership race

    March 28th, 2018 8:50 pm| by Christy Amanpour ||MBC News

    CMP's MPs must whittle down the contenders to a shortlist of two. Here are the runners and riders

    William Anderson's decision to stand down fires the starting gun on a Classical Monarchist Party leadership contest.

    MPs must whittle down the contenders to a shortlist of two, who will then be elected as leader by party members, and will become Prime Minister. It will be up to the victorious candidate to decide whether to ask Parliament to back a fresh election.

    Here are the contenders:

    • Francis Underwood

    The obvious favorite. He gambled his career on backing Anderson Scandal, as being his secretary of defence, knowing that a vote in parliment to make the PM resign the premiership would all but guarantee that only a figure from the inside camp could become the next CMP leader. That gamble has paid off today. Popular among the party membership, and one of the most well-known political figures in the country, he is the candidate to beat.

    His decision to back the Anderson Scandal was viewed in many quarters as opportunistic and his willingness to head a campaign which at times appeared to be trashing the Classical Monarchist Party government’s record will mean he has bridges to build with many senior CMP figures. He will have to be emollient, and non-triumphalist, and perhaps above all, distance himself from Elliot Timothy, John Adams and John Tallonsi.

    • Claire Underwood

    Wife of hr actual secretary of defence, but with liberal tendencies inside the CMP. She is the longest-serving Chancellor of Exchequer. While backing his husband campaign, she did not hit the campaign trail and delivered only a handful of tweets and interviews, but delivered a motion to debate the resignation of the PM, and was critical of many aspects of Montenbourg's economy, particularly the progress of the private sector and the elimination of the income tax. Hedging her bets allows her to now emerge as a ‘unity’ candidate, and she is said to have been building up her back-room staff in preparation for a leadership bid.

    She has the significant advantage of having served in one of the great offices of state, in a steady and competent manner that has won her many admirers within party and the civil service. At a time of great instability, it may be that she is viewed as steady hand on the tiller. Mrs Underwood does however, lack the ‘star quality’ of a Francis Underwood and party members may doubt her ability to connect with ordinary voters.

     • John Adams

    The First Secretary may be able to set himself up as ‘the thinking CMP Anderson Scandal candidate’. Made an enormous political and personal decision to back the PM. He performed well during the TV debates, and will be an admired figure among CMPs'. Along with Underwood, he will be hindered by the fact that he led a very divisive campaign, characterised by ‘blue-on-blue’ action. MPs may also judge that he lacks Francis Underwood's wider appeal with the electorate. Possibly more likely that he will settle for being his new bosom buddy Francis’s Chancellor. 

    • Joseph Biden

    The Marlbourgian CMP leader is a hugely-admired figure, and would offer the CMP party appeal among voters few other candidates could reach. Leading the Classical Monarchists to a second place finish in Marlbourgh parliament elections was an extraordinary achievement for a party that was close to vanishing off the electoral map in Marlbourgh not very many years ago. However, would have to become an MP first, and will be tarnished in the eyes of many CMP MPs and members by his outspoken support for the Prime Minister. It may well be too soon for him, but he will have a very influential voice in the debate.

    • Xavier Bettel

    The First Minister of Cranford, for years considered William Anderson's natural heir, Bettel would in ordinary circumstances be top of the list of runners and riders. In today’s circumstances, he only just scrapes in as a contender. His stock among CMP MPs and members was already falling as a result of a succession of bungles, culminating in a Budget that was overshadowed by the resignation of Iain John Smith and a U-turn over swingeing disability cuts.

    He was William Anderson's right-hand man arguing for the PM to remain, and attracted furious anger from anti-scandal CMP's after he spearheaded warnings about the consequences of resignation, which were branded ‘Project Fear’, and then proposed a 'Resign Budget' that was viewed as nothing short of blackmail by many CMP's MPs. If he survives the immediate aftermath with his job intact, he could be a contender, but his stock is now so low in the CMP's party he’ll struggle to make it over the first hurdle.


  • Xavier Bettel officially becomes MTB Prime Minister

    March 28th, 2018 8:50 pm| by Christy Amanpour ||MBC News

    Classical Monarchist Party MP Xavier Bettel has been appointed as Montenbourg's first gay Prime Minister.

    Mr. Bettel, 39, was invited to form a government by King Lawrence I in a private audience at Bourgeon Palace. The 2th PM during the King's reign, Mr Bettel suceeds William Anderson, who tendered his resignation to the monarch two days ago.

    He arrived at the palace by ministerial car with his spouse Gauthier Destenay, having set off from the Council of State after Mr Anderson was officially accepted by the King.

    Mr Anderson advised the King to appointed the former First Minister of Cranford in his place. A spokesperson for the Palace said: "The King received in audience Xavier Bettel and requested him to form a new Administration." 

    In a brief address outside Prime Minister Residence, Lexington Street before he resigned, Mr Anderson said: "It has been the greatest honour of my life to serve our country as Prime Minister over these last ten years and to serve as leader of my party over 5 years. And as we leave for the last time, my only wish is continued success for this great country that I love so very much."

    Mr Bettel is to give an address outside Lexington Street later this afternoon outlining his initial priorities in office. He is also expected to unveil the core members of his Cabinet later this evening, with other appointments to be made clear in the coming days.

    The former First Minister of Cranford, who backed Refugee Protection Act in the European Union referendum debate and the LGBT rights in the region, will steer Europe a bit.


  • Elizabeth McCord gets appointed as the new Secretary of State

    April 1st, 2018 8:50 pm| by Christy Amanpour ||MBC News

    Montague, Strasbourg-.

    The Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel, today announced that unde His Majesty's approval has appointed Elizabeth McCord as an independent to fill a vacancy for Secretary of Foreign Relations.

    Previously a MCIA analyst and Political Science Professor at the University of Bosco. Until she resigned from her position due to her ethical opposition to the MCIA's use of torture, Dr. McCord has enjoyed a distinguished career as a lawyer, professor, and analyst. Throughout her career, she has worked tirelessly to examine and address the inequalities that exist between LGBT, Black and minorities peoples in health care services and delivery, also their treatment in European countries.

    Dr. McCord was recommended by the Independent Advisory Board for House of Lords Appointments and chosen using the merit-based process open to all Montenbourgians. This process ensures public servants are independent, reflect Montenbourg diversity, and are able to tackle the broad range of challenges and opportunities facing the country.

    "Finding your voice as a leader is never easy, but is a challenge as a woman that we all must take. I want that with this appointment make a clear statement we the  Women, are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world. As the high rank diplomat of Montenbourg I extend this message, we are gonna use every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security, across europe and the world, promoting free trade agreements between our nearest neighbors and good relations with all. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one's enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems and determine the solutions.

    Democracy, freedom, and the rule of law are under attack around the world. A rising tide of authoritarianism and illiberalism threatens the foundations of the post-World War II global era that Montenbourg diplomats have built and defended. Our Nation, Our Montenbourg is not defined by ethnicity, by lineage, by names and definitely not defined by where we come from. We Montenbourg are defined by an idea.

    Unlike most other nations, the idea is that all people are created equal and that you can pursue life, liberty, and happiness here. And Montenbourg will extend this message across europe and the world".

    Montague, Strasbourg-.

    Following the declaration of officials like Mary d’Ivry Foreign Minister of Angleter, Elizabeth McCord agreed a brief statement with the press of MBC News.

    "I wish, obviously I wish that the European community writ large had been able to rein this in. We just know the impact in the children and minority groups. And this is not an Angleterian only issue, is a European issue. We of course are open to negotiate and pursue friendly relations with Angleter, we understand that is in that way of knowing that this is a humanitarian crisis that needs to be resolve. We have asylum seekers at our boarders and also at angleterian borders.

    "And look, this is not a press leak but we have it on good authority that refugees are being targeted for persecution. And under the Refugee Protection Act this can not happen."

    "We want protection of rights to these people, we are humane in this. We of course pursue betterment of our relations with Angleter, in fact HM Government is planning on a summit to invite european leaders... but the fact that we want better for europe, means better for the individual. Thank you..."
