Plank 3 of the platform on which my party stood reads: "...the Culture Ministry will promote Talossan performing arts, language, and other cultural whatevers in cooperation with the University of Talossa, private groups, and creative individuals, and the next Cosâ will not end without this Ministry being able to point to a nation that it has helped flower through encouragement and support of a host of cultural accomplishments in language, sports, music, and other sundry whatnot."
With great pleasure, I am proud to announce that I have named (and His Majesty the King has appointed) Capitán Nicolâ Casálmac'h the Minister of Culture for the Kingdom of Talossa.
I look forward to her service, and that of the two bureau chiefs whom she shall name and who shall labour with her in fulfillment of the pledge that this government has made to its nation.
I now ask that our nation join me in congratulating Capitán Casálmac'h and offering her our best wishes and our best efforts in support of her execution of the duties she now assumes.
Done under my hand, and not someone else's (even though, yes, my hands do look a lot like many other people's, so sometimes it's hard to tell), Hooligan Seneschál

(See, he's getting back at us all for nominating him prime minister. In the months to come we may regret that.)
I am most honored (and more than slightly nervous) at the weight of the responsibility that has been placed upon me. Since I was unable to talk my way out of the position, I shall do my best to serve the nation as Minister of Culture, though the only thing I can promise is that I cannot promise anything.
As a start (so that none shall think I have done nothing whatsoever) I shall start--as Lord Hooligan said--by naming our two bureau chiefs.
To el Büreu del Glheþ Talossán I hereby name Cresti Matáiwos Siervicül as Ladintsch Naziunál.
To the Wargames Bureau I hereby name Sevastáin Casálmac'h as National Gamemaster.
(Doing quite well, except for the fact that I haven't the slightest idea what I'm doing....)

I am honored to be appointed to the office that so many fine Talossans (many of them far more experienced wargamers) have held before.
Lord Hooligan has said that he wants me to DO something with the office. I have a few ideas, but any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I know there was a time when the Talossan Wargaming Association published two wargames. One of them, Byzantium Reborn, has a rating of 9 out of 10 on boardgamegeek.com. I would like to see this happen again, and I will do my utmost to see that something, anything, comes out of the Wargames Bureau.
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: It's obvious enough why you like it. Hurts my feelings, to be honest. Didn't know Etho felt that way. Think I'm going to take a further step back from things, see how I feel. See you folks in a few months.

Magniloqueu Épiqeu da Lhiun: That speech would have been great without the unnecessary attacks. That really is very disappointing. Why do we do this to other people? What was gained from this?
Feb 17, 2020 4:43:41 GMT -6
Lüc da Schir: That's a pretty weird speech and it misses the point of a lot of complaints against the current Government. Though I'm happy that Eðo feels he is in the right place at the moment. He's genuinely a great guy.

Lüc da Schir: "We are seeing mild resistance against electing the Seneschal"... come on, Ian P admitted to the Cabinet that you guys have no counter-arguments and he's fine with dropping it. At this point you'll be ramming it through without any real argument in favor.

Ian Plätschisch: That post was never supposed to be on my personal feed and I thought nobody saw it after I deleted it

Ian Plätschisch: Sort of like the time S:reu Crova threatened to release a story about the MRPT's proposed "third pole" going into the 49th Cosa because you accidentally posted it to the public part of the MRPT forum.

Lüc da Schir: That wasn't meant to be a secret plan or anything, the whole thing was just Inxheneu being a butthurt cunt.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: YIPES! Italians aren't allowed to use that word, only Scots and Aussies
Feb 17, 2020 16:28:42 GMT -6
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Seriously, can I point out that Ián represents the most "centrist" of the coalition parties and the FreeDems and PNP are much more pig-headed about reforms
Feb 17, 2020 16:29:13 GMT -6
Lüc da Schir: I have the c-word pass
Feb 18, 2020 4:05:31 GMT -6
Lüc da Schir: It's not very clear how "centrist" AMP actually is compared to the other coalition parties. All three have ideas I consider unpalatable, to pretty similar degrees.
Feb 18, 2020 4:09:19 GMT -6
Lüc da Schir: Also note that I'm never opposed to reform (however drastic) in principle, but I will always be opposed to stuff that hasn't been thought through / is there just to score a political point for no measurable gain.

Lüc da Schir: It would be cool if Açafat's office was "solicitor general" instead of "deputy AG"
Feb 18, 2020 12:28:44 GMT -6
Magniloqueu Épiqeu da Lhiun: Why not be quirky? Attorney Marginal? Solicitor Exceptional? Barrister Unusual?
Feb 18, 2020 14:28:23 GMT -6
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: "Solicitor General" has a technical meaning, that is someone who actually appears in Cort on behalf of the Govt at the A-G's instruction. In the long term I want to create such a role in Talossa because writing legal briefs is a specialised skill...
Feb 18, 2020 15:38:31 GMT -6
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: ... but considering the baptism of fire that Açafat has been getting in the current case, I wouldn't wish that job on him unless he REALLY wants it
