"Can you stop scratching your legs? You will drop the candles and besides, it doesn't look appropriate for a Minister." Reiserová complained, as she and Karel Šín approached the cabinet meeting room in the Castle approximately fifteen minutes after midnight.
"Well I am sorry, but you know, I told you the material is not comfortable." Šín responded in a weak voice. He felt like he was forced to wear a lot of silly outfits, during his active acting career, especially for 'Jersey' where he was forced to sport battered polo-shirts and shorts of various colour. But no outfit he ever wore seemed to him as silly as the white and red tunic, red belt and white pants he had on right now, an exact copy of the clothes Slavomír wore, safe for Šín's expensive formal shoes. If it was up to him, he would never put such clothes on his body, but the President urged him, and he knew better than to try and resist her. Around his neck was also a necklace with a symbol of Veles, god of the underworld and music among other things. The neclace was gifted to the Minister by Reiserová as she claimed that Czech Slavia lost previous Eurovoice contests, due to lacking a blessing from Veles.
"Oh I am so exited Karel, do you think the rest of the Cabinet will be able to see the truth immediately? Imagine how silly they will feel for ignoring the human soul up to now! But I was guilty of that too. Until now." Reiserová chatted exitedly, her still bare feet hitting the ground, "I actually have to use the restroom, would you please enter the room first and set up the candles for me? Thank you!", she waited for Šín to confirm that he will do just that before she left for the restroom.
Šín made sure to put his sunglasses back on, before opening the door to the conference room. Usually, he wore them, because he thought it made him look cool, but in this very moment, he just wanted to hide his eyes to feel a bit less shame about his clothes. Of course as soon as he opened the door, all the eyes of the other members of the Cabinet were on him, as all talk in the room died. Finally, Minister of the Environment Natálie Imberová started speaking, "Were you practicing for a play and forgot to change Karel?" out of the entire Cabinet who usually looked down on Šín, Imberová was perhaps the friendliset to him, safe for the President herself.
Šín simply smirked, "I am afraid our Wise Leader has found faith, you will see." he simply responded as he started putting candles on the table and lighting them up.
"Oh this is horrible!" Minister of Foreign Affairs Jasmína Dlouhá exclaimed after few confused looks, to which Minister of Education Weisser nodded.
"We will have to make sure nobody learns of this." added Minister of Regional Development Lubomír Mejzlík.
"I hope she at least joined the Hussites, and not the Catholics." Minister of Finance Heřman Švestka chuckled.
"I am sure in few minutes, you will be wishing it was the Catholics Heřman." Šín remarked simply as he turned off the electric lights and sat down, to much complaining of the rest of the Cabinet, who did not know why they were summoned, and most of them thought of their comfortable beds, waiting for them.
Then the door opened and in walked Reiserová herself, with Ministers looking puzzled about her dress, which matched the one Šín was wearing. Before she even sat down, she made sure to remove Šín's sunglasses from his eyes, she always hated when he wore them indoors, but now she could not tolerate this accessory to corrupt the outfit of the Rodnovery.
"Comrade President, if I may." Minister of Industry and Trade Květoslav Musil took the floor as soon as Reiserová seated down, feeling that he knew what the meeting was to be about. "Indeed the numbers have been verified and both Škoda and Tatra vehicle manufacturers reported record sales in the third quarter of the year, with the number only expected to increase in the current quarter and in certain location their cars became a favorite affordable alternative to the bigger competitors." Minister of Agriculture Pavel Dohnal slightly sighted at Musil words, considering them an attack on the funding that was dedicated to fishing and agriculture each year in the budget.
"Oh, well, that is wonderful! Thank you Květoslav. But, you know, I did not come to talk about cars, I came to remind us of a more important topic, the human soul!" Excitement did not leave Reiserová's voice as she stood up from her chair, "Comrades, I have realized for how long our administration has ignored the development of people's spirituality, to understanding of the world and I could not be idle any longer, this has to change. I realized that we, as a nation, as Slavs, are the children of the gods and in order to become cosmic beings we have to rediscover the ancient wisdom of our ancestors, to, you know, achieve this, we must..." she could not finish the sentence as she was interrupted.
"Albína... are you feeling... well?" Minister Švestka whispered as the other members of the cabinet looked at their President with eyes wide opened in shock, safe for Karel Šín who was smirking and at least playing with his sunglasses.
"Comrade Minister! Do not interrupt me! The positive aura can not flourish if you keep emitting negative energy, which prevents the growth of the soul!" Reiserová raised her voice, before calming down, "I have had many enlightening talks with an important and knowledgeable person, and he helped me see the truth. I realized that our ancestors understood the world and human spirit better than current society does, due to their connection to the Gods, which was separated by the arrival of Christianity and I have decided to revive this connection with our Gods. Comrades I ask you to join the Rodnovery together with me." now the room was completely silent.
"Rodnovery? Aren't they mostly led by neofascists and antisemites?" the Minister of interion Bohumila Dvořáková finally asked, unsure if she heard the President properly.
"Well, you know, there have been some controversial figures associated with the movement... but those people aren't really interested in the uplifting of the spirit and our connection to the Gods..." Reiserová's voice got a bit more shaky, "But the truly faithful will cleanse the movement of all the snakes, which is why... you will redirect some of the StB agents from the anti-corruption campaign towards the Rodnovery movement to help cleanse it. Find, you know, dirt on these problematic individuals so they can be driven away from the movement so it can become fully focused on the worship of the Goddess." the President received no response.
"Furthermore," she cleared her throat, "Tomorrow apart from the celebration of our independence a festival of the goddess Mokosh will be held and I will have her statue erected in front of the Castle, I expect all of you to attend, I have had suiting outfits made for all of you." she paused for a second, "Except for you comrade Weisser, you are associated with the League of the Militant Godless, you are not Slavic and you will be resigning soon so it would not seem right. But you will inform the League that they have been disbanded. The Party will vote to disband them at around 10 AM today. And all the atheist propaganda will also be stopped from today"
"Disbanded? but Comrade President the League,.." Weisser could not believe his ears, but he got interrupted before he could finish.
"Has served its historic purpose in helping to get the nation from the sway of the foreign god. Now it has no purpose and it will be disbanded." the President for Life raised her voice again, before smiling at her Cabinet, "Comrades, will you join me in the Movement? Will you help me guide the nation towards the light of Dazhbog?"
"Of course Albína we are with you!" shouted Minister of Health Zuzana Saková, always seeking to appease her President. Soon she was joined with shouts of the other Ministers, swearing their loyalty to the Pantheon and thanking Reiserová for "finally allowing us to see the truth!"
Satisfied the President for Life nodded several times, "Excellent, I knew you would understand! Alright people I am a bit tired now, you will find your outfits just outside the door. See you all at 11 AM tomorrow in front of the Castle, I can't wait to see the festival!" with a wide smile, Reiseroáva turned around and finally left the room, leaving her Cabinet alone as she went ot her private room to get some sleep.
"She called us here at this time just to tell us this?" Saková asked once they were alone.
"I am afraid our Genius Leader has unfortunately lost touch with reality." Dohnal remarked.
"And we will all suffer for it, can you imagine us standing in public, dressed in these ridiculous clothes while we give offerings to a statue and dance in circles? Nobody will take us seriously but if we say that our Wise Leader is insane our government will end and counterrevolution will triumph." added Mejzlík.
"Why was she even chosen to be the candidate of the Party in the first place? Well I know that, but why was she entrusted with the Extraordinary Court before that? She always seemed a bit unwell..." asked Musil.
"I heard she was just kind of there, when Šedivý and Vicanová were dividing the country among themselves and they had to assign something to Albína, so they gave her the Court, as they only knew that she was a mother and therefore just. Then they both ended in front of the Court and suddenly Albína was the only eligible candidate for the President left. But I do know she used to be fairly organized in the trade union before all that." Dohnal, as a veteran establishemnt figure shrugged his shoulders, "Regardless, we will overcome."
"Comrades, do you realize what this means? By 11 AM we will need to fill the space before the Castle with people! If nobody shows up it would look really bad for the President and for us. I will quickly contact the heads of the regional Party branches to send some members, but of course we will also have to find the appropriate clothes for them..." Mejzlík reminded the rest as Šín chuckled at the scene, feeling a little less silly about himself now.
Naturally, none of this bothered Reiserová herself, as arrived in her private rooms, took a quick shower and laid her head on a comfortable pillow, full of excitement about the festival and happy thought about the, in her eyes, positive change she just made.
A typical Briekish Midlands summer afternoon. Chilly, yet overshadowed by the bright sun that did nothing to pacify the cold. Despite it being 13:00. The village of Berchtesgaden, having less than 100 inhabitants, had been insignificant until the airfield was built, specially for Presidential visits. The moment for it to shine had come, for President Lavoie was to be flown from there for a summer escape to Spain. The Presidential Plane, a new model modified by the Royal Air Force themselves, arrived at the airfield, waiting for the President's arrival.
Spain, much to the President's liking, had a particularly hot climate at that moment. He also sometimes considered Spain as his second home, perhaps understandable considering his roots were slightly Spanish, and he had a lot of friends and relatives there. He thus made elaborate plans for the summit to contribute on Brickston's part.
The Presidential car finally arrived at the airfield, with the President looking quite exceptionally delighted. Marchel, the Foreign Minister, immediately stepped out of the car and headed to the seating area, where many of the ministers attending were. President Lavoie meanwhile, read the Briekish Times newspaper, where the front page was predominantly an optimistic view about the summit, for which the President was glad.
Marchel was busy wandering about with many prominent ministers of the Finance Department, was interrupted amid a conversation regarding the reduction of tariffs for Spanish imports, by the President.
"It's time to go," said the President, following which they were escorted to the Presidential Plane which was to reach Madrid by 15:00. Marchel struggled with his 5 suitcases, for all "just in case" situations.
As the plane began its ascent to the skies, the President turned on the in-flight entertainment and waited for his arrival. Marchel meanwhile, to keep the tension low, decided to speak with the crew about his favourite Spanish restaurant in Portovo. It was only a matter of time before they arrived...
"That damned Labour Party. Always winning the Czebrik regions. This might change the status quo", President Lavoie thought to himself, while the Minister for Industrial Development, Haufer, was sitting next to him in the special edition presidential edition automobile, a true Briekish quality Mercedes Venedig 1986, modified for the President himself.
"Sad. Czechs are nationalising everything", remarked Haufer, "I always liked Czech beer".
"That's the first thing you thought of when you entered the car?" questioned Lavoie, who was laughing at the idea of Haufer having thought of that first.
"Well, in all seriousness, no. It just seems a bit hastily done. Just when I thought we could get them to liberalise like us, they did the polar opposite."
"I'm sure we can think of a reasonable deal," Lavoie said, now staring out of the window.
"I sure hope so," Haufer wished. "Won't this just hurt their FDI?"
"We run Brickston, not Czech Slavia. So we should try to ensure that we get a good deal which allows us to tap into the Czech markets."
"I don't think that's going to happen. When they say they're nationalising, they'll nationalise everything."
"You needn't worry. We've had talks over the phone. I'm quite sure we can let existing businesses stay in Czech Slavia at the very least."
"Just make sure they aren't commies."
To this, President Lavoie gave a very loud sigh.
They then approached the Prague Castle along with the fleet of security surrounding them.
John Peter Key and the foreign minister Aaron Scott were sent on the long flight to Aether flying economy class on Wizz Air. Other passengers barely noticed the understated politicians and their support teams.Over the flight they avoided discussing business. They put on good jumpers as the weather was far different from the Duchies at this point. On arrival they met the delegation.
John Peter Key responded to Merewyna "Thank you it was a very pleasant trip. The flying is more unusual to us , we try to use trains when we can. Maybe you could construct a high speed line to the United Duchies" he said jokingly.He agreed to get down to business , it would be good to get results today and a general understanding.

Thank you for joining me on this Zoom app to listen to me.
It has always been my mission in life to return happiness to the people. When I was five years old, I was sitting in the middle of school and was eating a cake. Many children, I saw, were unhappy because they did not have the cake I did, and were crying nearby. Unhappiness always makes me unhappy, so I tried to cheer them up. I told them that they had to be happy with their lot in life and had to work for what they wanted, and that handouts would only make them more sad. After that, they cried only tears of joy.
Now I am an adult, and in Europe I again see a lot of unhappiness among the people, and I am again unhappy because of it. But this unhappiness is not because people do not have what they want. People are unhappy now because what they deserve has been taken from them.
The people of Europe work to pay for the Union. They work to keep it alive. But the Union gives nothing back to them but bad governance. In some ways this has improved recently. Fishers and farmers, for example, now get lots of money from it, and now they are all Juncker and European fanatics. But for most people this is not the case. For most people, the Union is still like some sort of useless blob that absorbs their labor and their money.
Who would not be unhappy with a useless blob sucking away at everything you have? No one, nobody.
I want the Union to stop being a useless blob. That is why I am running. That is why I have made the promises I have. I will repeat them now, and explain them clearly, so that all of you can understand how I want to save Europe and return happiness to you all.
I will put a stop to the nonsense visions for Europe. A lot of Commissioners have gone and said that they will try some grand reform. Biden wanted to reform how the Council worked, so many different people, Kalessed, Juncker, wanted to put sovereignty-based restrictions in the Constitution, and so on and so on. In the end all they waste is time and money, because no one wants their reforms. Therefore, I will not make any useless proposals of that type, because they only take away the people's money and create with it nothing but tiresome, fruitless debates.
If I want Constitutional reform - and I do, I want to make sure that random laws are not forced down people's throats - I will only get it done by guiding the Council in so and so direction. I will talk with Councillors and express my opinions, and when there are enough Councillors present I will talk about my ideas in discussion. It is the Council's responsibility to make reform, and I will let it do so. All I will do is guide and influence it so that it makes the right and good reforms, not the bad ones.
I will also put a stop to the nonsense bickering in the Council. No one wants to hear about random personal grievances or about issues that have been discussed a thousand times. I will firstly keep a list of issues that have been resolved, so that the Councillors cannot lie to argue more about them, and also create a giant wall of shame outside of the Commission and Council buildings where the faces of Councillors who argue about nonsense too much will go, so that they will be embarassed and will stop.
I will also make sure that Europe responds to real and ongoing problems. Rather than making a mountain out of a molehill, I will listen to the happenings in Europe, and offer help and mediation when something bad happens. I will also treat problems we already know about with good and productive legislation. Juncker's Agricultural Fund, which helped to solve the problem of credit for farmers, is one example of this, and I will expand on it. I will offer credit with a fund for technology entrepreneurs and open the Arts Collaboration Fund to all artists. I will also propose a system of climate pledges, where a country can pledge to reduce emissions by such-and-such amount and receive subsidies in return.
More importantly, I will change the ways European laws come into force. The Constitution gives the IAC the power to enforce the interpret and enforce the laws. I want to work with whoever the IAC may be to make sure that this is done and that people understand how it is done, all in a way that is better for the member-states and for all of you in general.
Lastly, I will improve transparency. Whenever we do something, I will be sure to explain it, in clear words so that everyone can understand, through the European Commission App, and then talk about how it returns happiness to the people so that they can know how it benefits them and can feel like the Union is more than a useless faraway blob.
That's all! Vote Akem Linek for Premier Commissioner! Goodbye!
Proposal for EDA Reform
I will propose the following proposal for EDA reform. The proposal will split the fund into two funds the General Grant and Loan Fund for applications under 2,000,000,000 Euros accessible to third sector and government agencies which will be administrated by a board appointed by the the EU for various areas of development with boards specialised in Transport, Energy and Utilities , Retail and Industrial Development and Technology with a General Board for everything else. These should consist of 3 members from each country that will then give advice to the boards based on national knowledge they have. this fund shall report to the EU to ensure accountability. Any bids over 2 Billion Euros shall come out of a separate fund called the Supergrant Fund this will operate with the Commissioner approval system and European Council votes as back up as is the current system with the key difference that if a commissioner fails to vote on proposals withing 7 days of the deadlines multiple times they will be removed from office. The General Grant Fund shall have a minimum of 65% allocated to it and shall have application offices in all countries to make making applications easier. The Super Grant Fund shall get the remaining fund allocations. This is a good compromise between keeping the the commissioner system exclusively and going fully to national boards for EDA development which was voted against in the council
I know you as a nation like the EU and want it to work much like most Europeans but sadly the EU hasn't done a whole lot of working for you over the past year. The EU in its current state is a dismal failure. Want to pass legislation to protect consumer rights and environment or other pressing issues for the European people , it won't happen because of obstruction or inaction. Want to actually get a development project done with EU funds it won't happen. Why? Because its all centralised in Europolis in three people , three people to approve all applications including the smallest development fund application of a few million Euros. Hopefully you can see thats not how you run a multibillion Euro organisation, imagine if your government had only the President and a few of their cabinet approving all benefit applications and all transactions of the Elthize government on their own and didn't have the office support workers approving anything, you'd never get anything done. Yet that is how the EDA a organisation of 47.1 Billion Euros and supposedly most important professional development organisation in Europe is run, by three comissioners and thats it. The result gridlock of funds not a single Euro has been spent of EDA money, money took off you the hardworking taxpayer to be sitting around in an account in Europolis doing nothing, thats worse than useless thats actually harmful because if your government had that money they could spend it on services and the public good but they cannot and if they want to counter it and deliver development funds that should be out there they have to raise taxes or borrow money effectively raising taxes on your kids to just get back to where they were.
The solution I propose is simple each nation should have a National Development Board under the EDA half apointed or selected by the memberstate in a way they see fit and half appointed and selected by the EU commission or EU in a way they see fit. They get given an allocation of money based on factors of development need and population and they approve applications within a framework provided by the EU of sustainable development. Being local they would use local context and knowledge no one in Europolis could possibly have for example is your local area public transport based, more care based or more micro-mobility based. Is your area denser or more rural. Your NDB would know this stuff because its formed of experts from the area and they can set up sub-comittees to deal with different types of applications based on expertise further localising the process and delivering decisions based on actual knowledge not some pre-conceived idea of one man in the centre. Now you might say but what about accountability and corruption well simply put each NDB would be audited reguarly to make sure money is effectively being spent, if its not or fraud is found reforms must be done or money will be cut off, but I ask you this what are the checks at the minute, suppose a group of three corrupt comissioners get in that all support a certain industry or corporation whats to stop them just approving funds only for that organisation right now, there is no oversight as of now. That is a fatal flaw , its doesn't even need corruption it just needs one to only have their national vision of development without understanding the local context and whole types of development can suddenly be without EU funds because of the ideological views of 3 people.That is now how you run a successful development agency and the numbers prove it 47.1 Billion Euros were handed to the EDA in December they have done nothing with it and its now June. Other agencies like the ESA aren't in a much better position, they are given funds but because everything must be approved at the centre or they are given very strict limited ways to spend it they cannot even launch a single sattelite for a Space organisation. All they can do is some vague notion of developing standards for the Space sector, thats not unity or doing good thats just money being wasted on an organisation that cannot do anything. I know of so many people in the EU agencies that want to do stuff, want to benefit the European people but can't because of a centralised EU bureaucracy machine trying to micromanage everything with a small number of people. The result is no projects get done and no good gets done just money sucked out of your pocket to sit around in accounts all year. This is not tolerable agencies need autonomy with oversight to be able to actually deliver, lets unleash the actual experts to allow them to do their jobs and deliver for the European people. People accuse me of being anti-EU because I criticise the running of the EU but I criticise it because it doesn't work, because its holding back unleashing the power of the EU. Because by actively calling any reforms of the EU to actually make it work is the real anti-EU move. I also question the value of the EDA when you have to go to Europolis even for the smallest grants, what organisation with just a few million in funds bidding for EDA money has the time or money to send their staff to Europolis multiple times, imagine how much easier it would be if all that was required was 400 Euro business trip to Forecoaster or St Lucas instead of a trip to Europolis. You could even have the member of staff home by night. We do not live in a wonderland where the EU works perfectly and needs no change lets not let this delusion of pretending we do take hold, you are all smarter than that.
I move on to communication. How many of you feel listened to by the EU comission? How many feel like the commission is actually communicating with you? I have rarely seen a communication from the commission , in fact when you contact them it can take weeks or months for a basic response. They can't even process a vote in the required time on applications, votes take months rather than the days they should the commission is essentially missing in action , sure it can come out with the odd statement and pop up with the odd statement on the situation in Istkalen but it needs to do more. You need a commission that's active responding to every message as soon as possible from the European citizens and nations, that's communicating whats going on , that you can see working . That is the job of a commissioner after all. I again ask if your president behaved in the way the commission as a whole has not just for this term but many terms would you accept it? I get the idea if your government behaved that way you would kick them out of office ASAP so why should the EU get away with it? Use your voice to vote for a commissioner that will actually do the job of the commissioner and no its not an excuse to say I have no time, if you have no time for the job don't run and let someone else who can run and do the job instead.
And I move on to the courts I think its time we end this election nightmare where we struggle to reach the numbers required regularly. We should have a pool of judges 5 from each nation sent in sitting on the pool for years not just a few months at a time. Each time a case comes in the relevent national judges that can't judge on it get removed from the selection process and five random nations get selected. Nations will have to actively select judges though and if there is inactivity those judges get replaced by more active judges. I also believe having to bring a case to the ECOJ is an issue, what if a member state scares its population into not bringing cases to ECOJ even though they break fundamental human rights under EU law, the ECOJ can do nothing. The court needs powers to prosecute , it needs powers to assess the situations in countries and laws coming in and if need be sue the country by launching proesecutorial action or we need an institution seperately that does this and brings cases to the ECOJ against nations perhaps run by selected, elected or appointed European Prosecutor , perhaps called the European Union Prosecutorial Organisation or EUPO. This would give teeth to legislation and the EU making countries actually follow EU law. This would protect the people of Europe. The situation in Istkalen only shows the shortcomings of the EU a clear breach of EU laws but nothing can be done because no one from Istkalen will sue because they are scared , and rightfully so, and this doesn't just happen in Istkalen there a several other EU states that have this issue. Look at Inimicus , look at North Diessan among others. We need this sort of reform to make the EU work. At the moment the EU can't spend money, can't administer projects and can't even enforce the few laws to protect Europeans that pass, it is a Do Nothing EU and that needs to change we need an EU that can actively serve its citizens that can actively protect its citizens and provide a platform for regional co-operation on big picture issues that can only be solved through European cooperation such as on the environment. I am proposing a Do Alot EU rather than a Do Nothing EU.
Under me I would put an amendment in the constitution where if an EU official does not respond within a week of a message being recieved they recieve a strike, if they miss a deadline such as on voting on EDA proposals they recieve a strike and on the first strike you get a warning on the second strike you get a warning and on the third strike you lose your job and another selection or election process is run to replace that person. This would be extended over key holiday periods such as Christmas or Easter which would be recess periods in the calendar or if there is a recess but otherwise you would be expected to respond and just do the job you were selected or elected for. We need this reform urgently otherwise we will get more and more EU comissions that don't work or who are lazy just running because it looks good on their C.V for their book signing tours or media careers. That should not be tolerated and won't be under me , I cannot promise to do this overnight but vote me and I can start delivery on delivering a responsive , effective EU that's easy to interact with. If you want this vision of the EU vote me and I can kickstart the reform to make it happen.
The Czech President for Life has finally stepped out of her plane. Exhausted, as she didn't get much sleep the previous night, due to reading. At least the sun felt pleasant in Spain on February, much more pleasant than in Czech Slavia. She was followed out by the Minister of Culture Karel Šín, who under the guise of deepening the cultural ties between Spain and Czech Slavia wished to visit the director of "Jersey" and show him, that "tiger blood" have gotten Šín to the government while the director kept directing sitcoms. Both politicians fixed their sun glasses and stepped into cars that have been prepared for them, to go to meet the Spanish President.
When the cars brought them to Palacio de la Moncloa they stepped out and Reiserová approached Aguilar with her hand extended, "Jesús, so nice to meet you!" as she shook his hand she leaned closer "What sort of issues are you getting yourself into again? You know, not a day passes that I don't have to read about your disputes surrounding the Straits. I thought you solved that issue?". She lent back and moved her head to face Šín, before bringing it back to face Aguilar, "I believe you haven't met with our Minister of Culture, have you?" she smiled at her Spanish counterpart.
Aguilar picked up the videocall while flying towards Sertia once again this year, as the situation was indeed of importance. He was, nevertheless, impressed to see people on the room hanging onto the edges of the ancient table, and his face could not hide what he thought, but he decided not to ask and rather proceed with the conversation:
"Mr. Cranst, it is also lovely to see you once again. My plane is actually flying over the Atlantic Ocean and will soon be landing in Sertia, and I will be heading to the meeting point we have designated. About Individual #1, the Spanish Armed Forces deployed in the island have been granted permission by the Spanish Government, and King Felipe VI has been informed. It is all up to you now, Fornithias".
The train slowly pulled its way out of the station, going faster and faster, headed southwest. "Well, Mr. Aguilar", Mr. Cranst said, "We'll be arriving at my home in about three hours. I think we have some things to discuss. In the meantime can I offer you some palm water?"
"Then I guess this brings the summit meeting to an end! It has been a pleasure, Mr. Starmer", Aguilar said, shaking hands with his British counterpart just before both signed the agreement they had reached on that summit.
Another international visit was over as soon as the British delegation left 'the Rock', and the Spanish President had one thing for sure: a new era began for Spain and Gibraltar.
