[4:15:38 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: What?
[4:15:38 PM] * Joe Puglisi has changed the chat topic to “Kingdom of Zealandia Government Press Conference”
[4:16:15 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: So, why a press conference?
[4:16:44 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: We think things have gotten a wee bit out of hand
[4:17:23 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Like what πŸ˜›

Sirocco and Zealandia possibly on the verge of war isn’t out of hand πŸ˜›
[4:18:01 PM] Joe Puglisi: I’d like to assure everyone – on behalf of the Zealandian Government – that we will completely and without hesitation address any reasonable issues asked of us.
[4:18:40 PM] HE James Wilary: *raises hand* Beyond the recent events in TASPAC, what other issues does your government have at hand?
[4:18:54 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Is the Zealandian government going to do something with regards to Siro-Zealandian thing going on?
[4:19:50 PM] Joe Puglisi: If it is asked of us, we will address it.
[4:20:35 PM] Joe Puglisi: Speaking as head of the Zealandian government, I’d like to say that the Democratic Vanguard of Zealandia stands committed to the Zealandian people and the standing of their state internationally.
[4:21:40 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: [1:18:35 PM] HE James Wilary: *raises hand* Beyond the recent events in TASPAC, what other issues does your government have at hand?

<<< We have the Sirro-Zealandia Split which we would very much like to mend
[4:23:14 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: We are also forming a Royal Commission to investigate alligations of Electoral Improparity
[4:23:56 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Any commission to investigate elections should not be royal, as the King is not impartial. That's my view speaking personally, as I do not represent the Federation Government here.
[4:24:24 PM] Joe Puglisi: Royal Commissions aren't controlled by His Majesty.
[4:24:38 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Herren Mejakhansk a Royal Commission is like an Irish Commission of Enquiry
[4:24:46 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Very well. Who then will head this commission?
[4:25:26 PM] Joe Puglisi: I would propose one Matthew Burkssen to lead such a commission.
[4:25:37 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: I accept
[4:26:17 PM] Joe Puglisi: Although it's not my responsibility to name one to lead the said commission.
[4:26:37 PM] Joe Puglisi: Perhaps for the sake of neutrality, Daniel Morris would be another good option.
[4:27:21 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: We could have a co-commisioner system, he also has his biases just as much as I do mine.
[4:27:49 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Personally I think the Judicary should handle this one
[4:28:04 PM] Joe Puglisi: That's a good idea.
[4:28:17 PM] Joe Puglisi: If I may propose members for the commission?
[4:28:24 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: But, I don't think I am part of the Judicary 😦
[4:29:21 PM] Joe Puglisi: Mark Bobsson, Matthew Burkssen, Daniel Morris, as well as foreign observers, including Jacob Tierney and Marka Mejakhansk.
[4:29:35 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Or maybe I am πŸ˜›
[4:31:06 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: I cannot work as an observer without the consent of my Head of State, so I will have to put it to him.
[4:31:12 PM] Daniel Anderson: [1:21:40 PM] Marshal Anthony Markssen|Marskal AnΓΎonΓ© Markssen: We have the Sirro-Zealandia Split which we would very much like to mend

<<< You know why I cut it off and you know how to fix it.
[4:31:30 PM] Jacob Tierney, OBS: I will be more than happy to attend
[4:32:09 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: [1:31:08 PM] Daniel Anderson: You know why I cut it off and you know how to fix it.

<<< Infact we would like to have a "Reset" Confrence Mr Anderson
[4:33:11 PM] Joe Puglisi: [7:31:07 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: I cannot work as an observer without the consent of my Head of State, so I will have to put it to him.

<<< I would give my highest recommendation.
[4:33:11 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Your Majesty, permission to publish this conference on The Online Burklandi or at least parts of it?
[4:33:57 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Sure it will be in World News Zealandia anyway
[4:34:06 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: All of it?
[4:34:21 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: you can publish all of it
[4:34:37 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: I meant will World News Zealandia have all it?
[4:34:52 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Not all of it
[4:34:57 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Oh
[4:37:44 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: I would also like to appologise on behalf of the Democratic Vanguard for the motion which called Mr Anderson insane we are verry sorry for any hurt feelings and embarrisment caused as that was not the vanguard's intention
[4:39:05 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Puglisi said it was for the intention of calming people down so the nation can be united. How do you think of the results which contradicted your hopes?
[4:39:39 PM] Joe Puglisi: I cannot speak on behalf of the whole party. It was a collective decision by a few party members.
[4:40:05 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: It was a callous and ill-thought out move.
[4:40:13 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Still, what do you think of the results?
[4:40:45 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: it calmed things down, yes, but only because you simply rid yourselves of the issue by throwing him out. You didnt actually engage him
[4:40:54 PM] Joe Puglisi: The results? It was an epic failure.
[4:41:06 PM] Joe Puglisi: No internet meme reference intended.
[4:42:38 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Mr Mejakhansk we did try and engage but both sides ended up in a screaming match and that was counter productive
[4:43:03 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Were any members of your own party also declared insane and removed from parliament?
[4:43:43 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: No, because only one was declared insane, only one Mr. Mejakhansk.
[4:44:13 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Why were no members of your own party declared insane, if they were all involved in this screaming match?
[4:44:47 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: No, only Mr Anderson was deemed to have a mental health issue and relived of his duites in our Ill thought out motion which we have appoligised for
[4:45:00 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Why were there no ZNP or non-Anderson NPP members declared insane?
[4:45:06 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: your move was political, nothing more, and designed to remove opposition.
[4:45:08 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: [1:44:08 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Why were no members of your own party declared insane, if they were all involved in this screaming match?

<<< We would have no Parliament left
[4:45:20 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: then why didnt you suspend parliament?
[4:45:34 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: what you did was throw your opponent out without dealing with the issues at hand, it was cowardly.
[4:45:49 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Actually Mr. Mejakhansk I agree that would have been a wise move.
[4:45:49 PM] Daniel Anderson: [1:45:06 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: your move was political, nothing more, and designed to remove opposition.

<<< That is why I cut off ties.
[4:45:59 PM] Daniel Anderson: What's worse is it was done while I was away.
[4:46:00 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: [1:45:15 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: then why didnt you suspend parliament?

<< [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 4:46:29 PM Marka Mejakhansk] seriously, at least admit the real reason why you did it.

If you wanted to keep his real reasons a secret because they would prove that he was a dictator
[4:47:51 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: [1:46:16 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: So you acted cowardly in fear, Anthony?

<< [Wednesday 14 December 2011 00:47:36 IST Matthew Burklandssen] *cough* bs *cough*

Please, none of this.
[4:48:52 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Oh looked I removed it πŸ˜›
[4:49:00 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: good,good.
[4:49:25 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: what do you plan to do now, Anthony, to fix the situation?
[4:49:35 PM] HE James Wilary: Excuse me however, I believe this is a press confrence, not a debate
[4:49:53 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: I’m asking a question as per the conference.
[4:49:57 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: We have appoligesed and will be removing the motion tommorw
[4:51:06 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Mr. Anderson, how do you respond to this act by Anthony?
[4:51:22 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: I have also laid the offer of a reset confrence on the table Mr Mejakhansk
[4:52:07 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Mister Anderson, will you be re-assuming your citizenship in Zealandia or will you be remaining seperate entirely?
[4:52:17 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: in which case, this would become an international issue rather than an internal one.
[4:53:40 PM] Daniel Anderson: [1:51:07 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Mr. Anderson, how do you respond to this act by Anthony?

<< [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 4:49:57 PM Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi] We have appoligesed and will be removing the motion tommorw
[4:53:58 PM] Daniel Anderson: [1:52:07 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Mister Anderson, will you be re-assuming your citizenship in Zealandia or will you be remaining seperate entirely?

<<< Not until steps are taken to make Zealandia a freer nation. For the time being, however, no.
[4:54:06 PM] Daniel Anderson: Motion to kick me out?
[4:54:13 PM] Joe Puglisi: Define freer nation.
[4:54:16 PM] Joe Puglisi: Motion to declare you insane.
[4:55:27 PM] Daniel Anderson: Not so anti-opposition.
[4:56:05 PM] Joe Puglisi: To be honest with you, it seems this all comes from that article in TZT.
[4:56:38 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: As an outside observer of all of this, I would like to note the astounding like of fairness in Zealandian news reporting.
[4:56:57 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: the press in Zealandia is so hopelessly in favour of the ruling party, that it does not allow for the opposition to have any kind of real input.
[4:57:18 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: *lack, rather.
[4:57:23 PM] Joe Puglisi: TZT is operated by the SUPZ.
[4:57:31 PM] Joe Puglisi: TZG however, is not.
[4:57:33 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: I mean across the media in general.
[4:58:02 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: [1:56:53 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: the press in Zealandia is so hopelessly in favour of the ruling party, that it does not allow for the opposition to have any kind of real input.

<<< we have World News Zealandia, Nyheten and The Zealandian Gazzette as Neutral sources

TZT however is like Zealandia's Prvada
[4:58:05 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: The opposition could form their own newspaper.
[4:58:31 PM] Joe Puglisi: As I've suggested many times in the past.
[4:58:54 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: I would suggest that the party-controlled newspapers lessen the ferocity of their attacks on the opposition
[4:59:48 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: such an abusive environment is counter-productive when it comes to a free society
[5:00:46 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: As for my last suggestion, you wont like it.
[5:00:49 PM] Daniel Anderson: [1:58:05 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: The opposition could form their own newspaper.

<< [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:09:04 PM Marka Mejakhansk] listen, you asked me to come to this conference, if you didnt want my input you wouldnt have added me.

Mr. Mejakhansk, the King, who invited you, didn’t say he didn’t want your input. Nor did James Wilary, he just wants to express a different point of view
[5:10:20 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: for example, a “State of Zealandia” with you as “Chief of State” leading a Government. At least then people will know that its not as wide reaching a democracy as you think.
[5:10:28 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: well, he didnt stop me, Matthew.
[5:10:34 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: I know
[5:10:35 PM] HE James Wilary: Now that could be utilized in some form or another, however
[5:11:01 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: I have no problems with direct government, I just have problems with people pretending to have democracy when its just not applicable.
[5:11:03 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: So if I where to vacate for some reason then what?
[5:11:13 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Nominate a deputy
[5:11:46 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: You dont need democracy in a micronation, the problem here is caused by you pretending to have that system. You just dont need it.
[5:11:53 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:10:20 PM Marka Mejakhansk] for example, a “State of Zealandia” with you as “Chief of State” leading a Government. At least then people will know that its not as wide reaching a democracy as you think.

State of Zealandia sounds fascist, I mean we don’t ban the opposition πŸ˜›
[5:12:03 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: In fact, we are fair and democratic πŸ˜›
[5:12:04 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: I nominate both Matthew and Puggy as deputies
[5:12:06 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: another name if you like, but you get the idea.
[5:12:31 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Oh and I am vacating for an uspecifed period of time the Chairman role
[5:12:39 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: Anthony, I know you want to be King, but you need to organise your system around the fact that you clearly are the man with all the power and that wont change. Thats not a bad thing, AS LONG as you make that clearly known
[5:12:59 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: I assume the title of Chairman of Zealandia
[5:13:11 PM] Joe Puglisi: Excuse me Matthew, but we both recieved that title.
[5:13:18 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: oh no, here we go…
[5:13:27 PM] Joe Puglisi: πŸ˜› Co-Chairman
[5:13:30 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: my above idea is only possible if you disestablish the Kingdom and start again from the bottom.
[5:13:30 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Oh, I assume the title of Co-Chairman πŸ˜›
[5:13:44 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: or at least fundamentally change the government system
[5:13:45 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:13:30 PM Marka Mejakhansk] my above idea is only possible if you disestablish the Kingdom and start again from the bottom.

The ZDR was rejected πŸ˜›
[5:13:53 PM] Joe Puglisi: Or Deputy to the High Grand Chairman of the Glorious State Council of the People.
[5:13:57 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: the problem with Zealandia is that it doesnt know what it is
[5:14:03 PM] Joe Puglisi: I like Republics
[5:14:20 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: it could be a benevolent dictatorship, or it could be a democracy. Either one is fine in micronationalism, but you cant be both as you’re trying to be now.
[5:14:40 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:13:53 PM Joe Puglisi] Or Deputy to the High Grand Chairman of the Glorious State Council of the People.

And I assume *the* High Grand Chairman of the Glorious State Council of the People would be you πŸ˜›
[5:14:55 PM] Joe Puglisi: πŸ˜› As long as I make all the decisions
[5:15:10 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: and on that note, im going to bed. At least consider what I said, even if you end up ignoring it. I didnt write all that for the good of my health
[5:15:29 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:14:55 PM Joe Puglisi] πŸ˜› As long as I make all the decisions

Can I at least give you advice πŸ˜›
[5:15:32 PM] Joe Puglisi: Except executive for decision making on public restroom regulations, you can have that. πŸ˜›
[5:15:43 PM] Joe Puglisi: As long as the advice is something I already agree with. πŸ˜€
[5:16:04 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: BRB
[5:16:20 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:15:32 PM Joe Puglisi] Except executive for decision making on public restroom regulations, you can have that. πŸ˜›

I propose healthy ways of flushing the toilet which I will come up with when I decide too πŸ˜›
[5:16:31 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:15:43 PM Joe Puglisi] As long as the advice is something I already agree with. πŸ˜€

What if you don’t have an opinion on an issue πŸ˜›
[5:16:32 PM] Joe Puglisi: Viva la toilet!
[5:16:45 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: “thanks marka, we appreciate the advice”
[5:16:55 PM] Marka Mejakhansk: to be serious though, at least consider it. Later guys.
[5:17:01 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: (bye)
[5:17:02 PM] Joe Puglisi: We will. Good night.
[5:17:30 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: > [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:16:31 PM Matthew Burklandssen] What if you don’t have an opinion on an issue πŸ˜›

Can I give you my very own opinion then.
[5:17:46 PM] Joe Puglisi: πŸ˜› you’re not entitled to your own opinion
[5:18:16 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Seriously though, I will have my own opinion. πŸ˜›
[5:18:36 PM] Joe Puglisi: Yes, and it’ll be the same as mine. πŸ˜€
[5:18:55 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Be serious (wasntme)
[5:19:27 PM] Joe Puglisi: And right now, I have the opinion that I *CENSORED* and clean up a few things around the house. brb
[5:19:41 PM] Jacob Tierney, OBS: I see…
[5:19:57 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: My opinion is you shouldn’t have made that public (wasntme)
[5:20:41 PM] Jacob Tierney, OBS: My opinion is…I don’t even know anymore
[5:21:13 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Well, the Online Burklandi will report the entire conversion so be careful what you say here πŸ˜›
[5:25:44 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Any futher comments?
[5:26:11 PM] Joe Puglisi: [8:21:15 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: Well, the Online Burklandi will report the entire conversion so be careful what you say here πŸ˜›

<<< [8:19:28 PM] Joe Puglisi: *CENSORED*

<< [Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:28:35 PM Joe Puglisi] πŸ˜› yeah sure, just keep unity

I will
[5:29:22 PM] Joe Puglisi: Although I think the First Minister should have most power anywyas
[5:30:26 PM] Matthew Burklandssen: So, Anthony what do you think about our claim to office of the High Grand Chairman of the Glorious State Council of the People πŸ˜›
[5:31:39 PM] Anthony Markssen, Order of Puglisi: Im just the king
