Plank 7 of the platform on which my party stood reads: "...the Finance Ministry will fix one Talossan louis at the exchange rate of a pint of Miller beer (the most popular beer in the GTA) at the U.S. Consulate (Mr. Fritz's) and will begin the creation and sale of Talossan-themed merchandise (without violating the copyright laws of any nation), augmenting the royal treasury, which the Finance Ministry will direct shall be invested in interest-bearing instruments."
With great pleasure, I am proud to announce that I have named (and His Majesty the King has appointed) Ián Danôis, the Minister of Finance for the Kingdom of Talossa.
Yes, I realize that the job is a big one, but our man Ián is ready for it. After all, who could be a better MinFin than a FinnMan?
I now ask that our nation join me in congratulating S:reu Danôis and offering him our best wishes and our best efforts in support of his execution of the duties he now assumes.
Done under my hand, and with a slight cough (but don't worry; I'll be fine, thanks for asking), Hooligan Seneschál

First I want to say that I am very honoured to accept this position. This is a great way to serve this great country. I will do my ultimate best to fullfill my duties. I promise to be loyal towards the administration and anactive minister.
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?

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
