The URE government officially leaves the JDO citing it's ineffectiveness. It is willing to allow Davishire forces to stay in the base they have near Remus City. This is enacted from legislation based at 8 am today.
The Commonwealth of Davishire does formally leave the JDO effective 11am this morning
(OOC: Actually I did by having legislation pass early this morning)
I should be added in the list cause Davishire invited me and stuff and I agreed
OOC: The Organisation has just died.
