Citizenship and titles of Dallin Langford suspended

The Paravian Tribune

Yesterday, April 27th 2016, at 18:00 (GMT +1), Dallin Langford, General Secretary of the Democratic Republic of Cinnamon Creek, and Duke of the Paravian province of Wind River, had his Paravian citizenship at titles suspended by emperor Patrick, amidst Mr. Langfords 5th courtcase since the beginning of 2016.

Following mr. Langfords allegations that Horatio Eden, mememaster-general of Whestcorea, member of the DRCC cabinet, along with King Anders Saltborn of Latitudia had been “making articles about confidential information” without siting any evidence, Mr. Langford was sued by the two aforementioned, along with Mcarthian president, Kit McCarthy.

Following this, the situation rapidly escalated, with Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Eden resigning from the DRCC cabinet, and then allegedly being “arrested” by the DRCC. This breakdown in diplomatic relations greatly concerned emperor Patrick, as all 4 countries involved are close friends with Paravia.

Fearing that Paravia may be dragged into the fray, as well…

Micropressure… The Mercian Debate 2016: Quiet Success Amidst Bombast & Hot Air.

Burnham MicroPress

The link to the Mercian Party Leaders’ Debate 2016

This opinion piece, from the Lord Spiritual of Mercia, His Lordship Richard 1st, is not reflective of the opinions of the Burnham Micropress as a business.

With the Mercian 3rd General Election looming large, Regal Telecommunications once again brought together the representatives of the political movements in Mercia, to a party leader debate of the nature held during the first democratic election held in Mercian history. This recent debate, held on a Wednesday evening in April, was a juggernaut by the standards of the previous debate; whereas the first debate was a forty-seven minute long duel between Baron Shane Cahill of the National Liberal Party (NLP) and Baron Callum Newton of the Humanist People’s Alliance (HPA), this second debate was a  slow moving juggernaut of a performance; eighty-three minutes of discussion between four politicians.

Baron Cahill returned as National Liberal leader…

Rebel Attack Raises DRCC Questions

An attack by rebels on the government and infrastructure of the Democratic Republic of Cinnamon Creek has raised questions.

Last Wednesday, the Baltisk Journal, the national news source of Dallin Langford’s DRCC, published an article reporting riots and a rebel uprising in the nation. It was said that Capitol Square had been taken over, and the city of Dallingrad had been seized.

The Director of DRCC’s secret service, the XFIA, sent the following message to General-Secretary Langford.

General-Secretary,

The Capitol has been seized by rebels and most Utah of the provinces, regular communications have been disrupted by their supporters. Riots have occurred do [sic] to the election and other events…

Sir, DRCC is [sic] taken over by you know who.

-M.

Official statistics suggest the DRCC’s population may have been cut by up to 75% due to the events.

The DRCC is currently preparing for a general election, and candidate Henry Chester has been accused of leading the rebellion. Chester has received, in official polls, 0% support.

A communication from Chester read, in its entirety:

“Langford,

I see that you again tried to seize and quell my new military but again I see that you have failed! I laugh at the thought of you trying to win this battle, sending a useless army to fight my attacks but then again I knew what you were up to… you see, I have purposefully planned this for some time, a seed of rebellion started from the day you demoted me when I was right and you were wrong. Langford, you never could handle criticism, I have seen the posts, posted by your own peers or friends as you call them on the Micronational forum.

Go ahead, trust them I dare you too, they are probably planning the end of your Micronational career as I write. Don’t be a fool, surrender now and we shall leave what is left of your so-called nation in peace! I bet McCarthy is in on it too, you call him one of your best friends and a great statesman. You are lying to yourself!!! He is in on it as well, like the UT, Jackson/Horatio Eden, and anyone else that you’ve talked too. You know that the older members of that community you talk too hate you, the man you call Cahill, Karjasary, Belcher. What more proof do you need!?!? 

My army and nation will be a better nation than you ever could. You are a failure! Surrender now and you can save your evil empire. You can never win this, Langford. This is your last and final chance, I have all the time in the world to await your answer but don’t keep me waiting.

-Henry Chester”

Most interestingly, both Horatio Eden and Anders Saltborn have been removed from the General-Secretary’s Informal Advisory Board, a kind of foreign cabinet office, with Langford citing ‘privacy concerns.’

While Eden’s expulsion may be in response to the events of Eden v. Langford, and the Daily Micronational’s recent article, the expulsion of Anders Saltborn is still unclear.

The rebellion has however raised several questions, voiced both by the Daily Micronational, and President Kit McCarthy of Mcarthia.

  1. How has Chester managed to amass such forces, given the lack of popular support displayed in the election? Given that Chester appeared to have no support during election time, how has he amassed a military and the popular support to take control of such vast percentages of DRCC land?
  2. Why is Chester’s writing style so similar to that of Dallin Langford? The Daily Micronational’s Horatio Eden suggested that Henry Chester and Dallin Langford have very similar styles of writing, which was the same accusation put to both Jackson Cole and Emma Amtra.
  3. Does the whole affair bear KUR-like resemblances? It has been suggested that a phrase used by an XFIA agent, ‘one of the most trash talk I ever heard from a rebel’ was used almost identically by Langford when the KUR was uncovered. The KUR was known for its vastly over-exaggerated claims (such as the establishment of a missile program), and similar, though not perhaps as large, claims have been made by the Baltisk Journal and Langford regarding the current situation.
  4. Henry Chester has no presence on the Micronation.org forums, or indeed on Skype, so how does he know of Kit McCarthy, Horatio Eden, Universal Triumvirate, Shane Cahill, or Adam Belcher? Langford has claimed that Chester still views the forums and news sources, but for Chester to have gained all this information without access to Skype seems remarkable.
  5. Why does the Baltisk Journal keep reporting that this may be the end of the DRCC? Given that Langford apparently currently controls the Journal, it would be in his interests and editorial powers to play down these suggestions. Does he not have enough control? Is he trying to make things seem more dramatic? Is he deliberately trying to influence the outcome of events somehow this way?
  6. Why were Horatio Eden and Anders Saltborn removed from the General-Secretary’s Informal Advisory Board? Both are allies of the DRCC, so what privacy concerns do they pose?

The whole affair leaves more questions than it does answers. More to follow.

 

 

2016 Mercian Party Leader’s Debate | Poll

themicronational conducted a poll regarding the recent Mercian General Election debate. The results have now been released.

You can see the debate here.

Q1Q2Q3Q4Q5Q6

It can be seen that Baron Cahill and the NLP were the clear winners of the debate. The SDP and Baron Newton were trailing behind.

Interestingly, although most said they would vote for the NLP and Baron Cahill, 405 of Cahill’s ratings were graded only two.

themicronational will be back soon with the results of the election.

Revival of the Grand Unified Micronational underway

Austenasian Times

The newly adopted logo for the restructured GUM.

Yesterday evening, a quorum was held by the Grand Unified Micronational for the first time since June last year.

For the past ten months, the Grand Unified Micronational (GUM) has functioned as a formal chatroom for heads of state, politicians and diplomats, having been reformed from an increasingly dormant international organisation.

Yesterday, however, Emperor Jonathan I and Lord Kit McCarthy raised the prospect of having the GUM return to being an international organisation for small nations.

With overwhelming support from the chatroom’s members, the Emperor – who is the current Chair of the GUM – called together a quorum, a meeting of delegates which was used to pass motions when the GUM was an organisation.

The members of the chatroom passed a motion agreeing to begin work on drafting a new reformed charter for a restructured GUM, which would learn from the mistakes of…

Interview with Lord Kit McCarthy of Amerdansk

Austenasian Times

Lord Kit McCarthy is Baron and Governor of the newly annexed Austenasian territory of Amerdansk,  and last year founded the RadioMicro media group and the micronation of Mcarthia (his house in Scotland). He is known for his public criticism of Lord Admiral Joseph Kennedy – most recently supporting concerns raised over the Prime Minister’s mandate – and is a prominent figure amongst the newer members of the MicroWiki community. The Austenasian Times has conducted an interview with Lord McCarthy:

Tell us a bit about Amerdansk. What’s it like; what interesting features does it have?

Amerdansk is a patch of land next to Mcarthia’s east border, sitting directly north of Government House – indeed, the President’s Office overlooks it. Mcarthia’s two free range chickens are frequently seen there, along with Mcarthia’s two cats.

The land is accessed by a short narrow path through a wooden frame with various plants growing over it.
Much of the territory…

Eden v. Langford – The Case Continues

Horatio Eden’s civil case against Dallin Langford continues. Read the case so far here.

Following an possible resolution negotiated by the Universal Triumvirate, it seemed that Eden v. Langford was coming to an end.

But is it?

A new article from the Daily Micronational reveals that Horatio Eden may not accept the offer on the table.

“In my eyes, there’s just no benefit to us taking this deal,” remarked a Whestcorean ambassador. “Think about it; say we actually go along with this. First off, there’s no guarantee – if the UT and Loquntian cases are any indication – that Langford will uphold the deal he signs on to. Secondly, even if he does, this doesn’t create a legal framework that can prevent this debacle from happening again! The only way we can actually effect any meaningful change here is if we get one that is judicially mandated, whether that judicial body is within the DRCC or not.”
-Daily Micronational

Horatio Eden argued that the DRCC’s revocation of his citizenship was unconstitutional, and violated due process.

The DRCC claims that citizenship was revoked due to a threat by Eden to break an Assembly gag order.

Following the public debate on the case, the DRCC made an offer to Eden, which had been negotiated with the Universal Triumvirate, but without Eden’s knowledge.

The DRCC offered to reinstate Eden’s citizenship, as well as offering a public apology, and financial compensation.

However, if Eden does not take this offer, then things become more complicated.

Should Eden decide to take it to a court instead, the new court for DRCC honorary citizens, the International Civil and Criminal court, and the new Mcarthian court would be available.

As the Daily Micronational put it:

In announcing the deal, Major Executive Lancelot Rice hailed it as a mark that the situation had merely “blown over as a false alarm” – but are we experiencing here a blowing over, or merely the eye of the storm?
