[Bill] Natopian Accession Bill

Recommended Posts

* Sings happily and joyfully. *



And who are you,


the proud horde spoke,


that we should avoid your land.



Only the queen of a different den,


that's all the truth we know.



A king of this, a queen of that,


really means naught to us.



We've been fighting kings since the days of dawn,


and we have always won.



And so they spoke, and so they spoke,


that horde of barbarians.



But now the winds wail over their bones,


with no one there to hear.



Yes now the winds wail over their bones,


and not a soul to hear.

Lady Law Speaker,

Honourable Jarls,

 

I rise today to support this bill. Natopia is an important friend to Stormark, and Lady Esther and her family is also important to the ruling houses of both countries. Should such tragedy occur whereby the Emperor of the Natopians should die with no closer relative than Lady Esther to succeed him, then it is our responsibility, as a trusted friend, not to make the tragedy and crisis in Natopia ever greater.

What about making provision for the possibility that Natopia degenerates into a hater country again?

A High Priestess wishes to convey, as she has learnt from her observations as Ambassador to Natopia, that the risk of such thing happening is negligible for those who caused that unnatural and abhorrent state of belligerence between our countries have left Natopia and also have disappeared out of the hobby.

 

Those people remaining have learnt their lesson well, so that they will not allow te hijacking of their country again.

Lady Law Speaker,

 

If Natopia does end up a "hater-country", which I find laughably remote, I hardly suspect they would keep leading members of Stormark's ruling house in their line of succession! And if they do... then, we take over... and turn them to a love-country hah!
