LP Wyddfa:
"Good evening everyone, I hope you all had a good Christmas, sorry to drag you from the festivities but I called you here in order to end some rumours and speculation.....

I cam confirm that I have formally invited the self-labelled Government in exile which is made up of the Liberal Party & Traditional Union to stand in the 2021 Tynwald Election over the Christmas holiday. I haven't made it secret that I have issues with Prime Minister Paul Quine so called democratic reforms which the invention are part of, nevertheless it is my duty as Lord Protector to follow the direction of the Prime Minister & Tynwald in these matters.

Saying that I will use this opportunity to warn the immoral Reactionaries that litter the international community, that this election shall be free & fair as always but we are on guard 24/7 against those who threaten the social moral order of the Commonwealth and the wider world.

Quine believes for whatever reason that in order to prove to the international community that the free & fair election are exactly that, not that we need to do it in my opinion. That I should be inviting a selected group of international observers, I will be discussing the matter with the Public Safety Committee after the Christmas break.

Unfortunately I have no time to answer question...."

Both the Liberal Party & The Traditional Union have agreed to run a joint campaign for the 2021 June Election stating ignoring their vast ideological differences they both agree that the nearly century old iron hold grip of Democratic Labour Party power must end. With the Traditional Union being banned and most either arrested or fled the country due to many being suspected working with reactionaries seeking to undermine the creation of the Commonwealth, the Liberal Party have been allowed some political power over the years but were ordered to leave the country in 1974 due to a investigation into the party leadership over fraud & bribery claims.

Both parties are currently hosted in Eiffelland and have received a invention by Lord Protector Wyddfa under direction of Quine reforms, even with the invention the Public Safety Committee have put down conditions. All members wishing to stand must be audited and questioned by the Social Order Commissary, members living outside country shall be treated as immigration and must apply for the appropriate visa.

In other news the second biggest faction within the Democratic Labour Party have officially spilt and are in middle of registering the new party. Former DLP members will stand as the Progressive Democratic Party.

The Prime Minister has said;
"It is a great shame after spending weeks trying to enlighten my colleagues that the best way to serve the Commonwealth is to be united under one banner unfortunately they haven't listened but I wish the Progressive Democratic Party best of luck in the up-coming election."

Prime Minister Quine faces criticism from the Public Safety Committee for promising to release full text of the Madam Cadwaladr Report. Quine made the promise when repeatedly questioned by Progressive Democratic in the Tynwald. The Progressive Democratic Party bluntly used Prime Minister Questions as a vehicle to advertise their manifesto with its flagship policy of greater transparency within government institutions.

After being pushed enough Quine said he saw no ethical, legal or national security issue in publishing the report, not soon afterwards, the PSE realised a statement saying.

"The Prime Minster seems to be either acting or is ignorant to not see the obvious issues that would arise from releasing the full text of the Madam Cadwaladr Report. Information contain in it if made public will risk the safety of the general public and jeopardise on-going operations being carried out by the Commonwealth Police Service & Social Moral Commissary. It is irresponsible that he would even think of doing this and even more so when it is clear he is trying to chase away the threat from the children that run the Progressive Democratic Party."

The report was commissioned in 2006 after Lord Protector Wyddfa was unsatisfied that no lessons were learnt from the 1979 into the assassination of Lord Protector Galis II, what later was found out a escaped patient from a psychiatric ward had broken into his bedroom. Luckily like most Commonwealth men, Wyddfa severed in the CDF and had kept a personnel handgun under his bed, he was able to restrained the intruder. Gracefully Wyddfa allowed the man off with no charges and ensured he safety got back to the ward.

The PSC resisted any type of public inquiry into said event but gave in after facing pressure from the public & Wyddfa. Even then it was able to block publishing of the full text in 2011 sighting the 35 year clause in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which allows public services to deny public access to certain information which the Supreme Court deems could be a threat to social moral order or national security.

Any move towards early release of the papers will see a court challenge.

Run up to 2021 Tynwald Election

Prime Minister Quine agrees to a televised debate with Owain Rhys, leader of the Progressive Democratic Party in March but rules out having debate among the four parties running stating logistical challenges facing the Liberal Party & Traditional Union based aboard, who yet have to complete the necessary paperwork to enter the country. When ask for comment a spokesperson for both parties said.

"This is a clear attempt to stifle debate and question Democratic Labour Party's dogmatism that has drive the economy off the cliff edge and has created a police state that only till now has it grip's loosened."

On other election news, the Commonwealth People's Front has been barred from registering by the Electoral Standards Committee. The reactionary & nationalist party was formed after the 1988 Brace’s Bread Factory incident, where members of the terrorist group the Commonwealth Patriotic League took several workers hostage.

To this day the leadership of the party label the incident a false flag operation carried out by the "Engellexian secret service in the pocket of the Satanic new world order which is bank rolled by Zionist money."

We told by the Electoral Standards Committee that their application to register to stand in the election was slapped down within minutes due to their unapologetic history of anti-Semitism and various stunts they have done to strew racial hatred.

Progressive Democrats have called for the banning of the organisation since its founding but so far the Domestic Affairs Office have said they have no evidence that the party is a great threat to the social & moral order of the country to warrant a banning order.

Liberty Dies in The Silence:
Available Everywhere But Prydain


"The Establishment rifts are started to show under the Qunie Reforms"
You must be registered for see images

Opinion Piece by Jean-Marc Boulet
, a member of the Hadamar-Siegen Followership
Qunie following in the footsteps of Gails II promising a series of democratic reforms but it has ruffled the salt & pepper feathers of the old guard within the military & Trade Union Congress. Things are different this time, during Gails II failed Democratisation project, ethnic tension has cooled off in the Serpent region it still has a heavy armed presence and agents of the Border Protection Agency travel mostly by helicopter but these days the weekly fire fights between paramilitaries turned to small scale smuggling and the helicopter rides are necessary now due to how remote some areas of the region are.

This week showed the drawing of the dividing line, the Trade Union Congress's Central Council has completely fractioned over the June Election. The council made of twenty three delegates, held a meeting over the congress response to upcoming, reports from inside have said it ended in a shouting match. The delegates couldn't agree whenever the Congress support any type of election let alone which party to support.

Leading the charge for democracy Dyfan Wren the General Secretary of the United Steelworkers, walked out after the Council's Chair refused to hold ballet among Congress members to cage their opinion on Qunie reforms. Chair
Pierce a veteran of The Democratic Labour Party's hard left has privately with others in the establishment sought to remove Qunie from his position Failing so far, he has resorted to petty antics such has sending the Prime Minister on a wild goose chase trying to find the hall they used for 2016 Trade Union Congress annual members gathering or keep sending him to wrong address for their monthly meetings.

The Prime Minister for the last two years has ignored their existence after tiring of the Chair's antics, it could be fair to say Wren is looking to gain his favour and boot
Pierce off the chairpersonship but talking to those in the pro-democratic movement on the condition of anonymity, they have told me.

"
Dyfan Wren is a progressive and is for Democratisation , one of the first moves he after being voted General Secretary back in 2009 was to allow women membership and fought hard for a case related to coloured members being underpaid at a steel mill although the United Steelworkers lost the case because of inherited racial discrimination in the Commonwealth's Court system not the lack of commitment from Wren."

He is not the only one moving away from the lock step of the Central Council, around nine delegates joined in favour for the election.

Same time this week the Junior Officers' Association has publicly said that the risks of civil disorder in the aftermath of a closely fought election is not worth it and called for a delay till 2025 in order for the Public Safety Committee to "possible damage" that could be caused to the "Social & Moral order" in the society.

Becoming more and more a meaningless buzzword every time it is used by the Establishment, social & moral order is a catch all term to wave away anything the Public Safety Committee deems too troublesome away. On the other hand the Enlisted Men Association voted to back the Prime Minister in the election stating that the Qunie is only person able to keep stability on the bumpy road to democracy.

With one representing the Commonwealth Defence Force future hierarchy and other its rank & file. Some have feared trouble is brewing but the Department of Defence released a statement.

"The Department of Defence has ordered for members of the Armed Forces and civil servants working within this department to not comment on the up-coming election but we respect both Association has a organisation it has the right to have a opinion but like to leave a reminder that individuals members are barred from political campaigning."

Six months is a long time in politics so who knows what will happen.

Three members of the Trade Union Congress are discussing the future of their membership

The United Steelworkers, Feminist Workers Union & the Brotherhood of The Sea shall hold a meeting this coming Monday to disuses their membership of the Trade Union Congress, Tensions seen at the TUC Central Council meeting on Wednesday having boiled over to a general fraction across the entire membership of the TUC.

The source seems to be a disagreement on the timing of the up-coming election with Central Council Chair Pierce stating that the TUC should stay neutral on the issue but in private said that the democratisation project will lead to a fake democracy seen in rest of the region and wider world, where he said that labourers have no voice and only those with capital have one.

Those comments who leaked to reactionary press outside the commonwealth, Dyfan Wren the General Secretary of the United Steelworkers has told CBA.

"The TUC has been run down by the Establishment oligarchs and its mediocre leadership, who have moved away from the its founding principles."

Spokesperson for the Brotherhood of The Sea said that they are angry that the TUC won't support their push to allow postal votes for seafarers working away at sea. At current moment only those posted overseas with the Defence Force are allowed to vote by mail with the Electoral Standards Commission saying that mail in voting from non-Defence Force addresses carries a huge risk of fraud.

The Feminist Workers Union have refused to comment to the CBA.

The Trade Union Congress has labelled the move by the three unions a pointless publicity stunt that will go no where

A vote shall be held by the members of The United Steelworkers, Feminist Workers Union & the Brotherhood of The Sea whenever to dissolve their affiliation, all three unions of agreed to set up an alterative to the Trade Union Congress which has been the collective voice of the Prydain's trade unions since it's founding in 1868. The fifteen unions that made up the TUC represent 65% of public sector workers and 75% of the private sector, the three unions wishing to break away in total have 150,000 members with The United Steelworkers being the biggest with 75,000 members.

TUC's Chair Pierce has slammed the plan accusing Dyfan Wren the General Secretary of the United Steelworkers of creating a vanity project and attacking the united voice of Labour in Prydain. Wren dismissive the claim outlining the plan to CBA he said.

"The Trade Union Congress has lost sight of its founding principles, that is to be voice all workers of the Commonwealth but years of internal sexism, bigotry and elitism in the leadership caused it come off the path of worker solidarity a long time ago time. Myself and others have tried for best part of ten years to solve these issues but have been stonewalled at every turn. With the upcoming election promising to breath new life in politics the same is now happening else where in society."

Wren won't give CBA more details besides saying that a new International Workers Assembly shall be created soon, saying that the new organisation will have a worldwide forces by supporting workers and that it soon will be looking to start work in countries such as Pelasgia where the anti-trade union Act no. 12/2021 is currently going through Pelasgia's legislature.


Run up to 2021 Tynwald Election

The Traditional Union & the Liberal Party have written to complain to the Immigration Minister after being informed by the Immigration & Naturalisation Services Department, that both parties and their staff could only enter the country legally if they apply for a temporary work visa due to them not carrying valid passports so they have be classed as foreign workers which can take up eight months.

Both parties are angry and say that the invention to take part in the up-coming election was only sent in the New Year was done so to run the clock down on them and stop them fully taking part.

The Immigration minister & the Immigration & Naturalisation Services Department wouldn't comment on the matter.

Unions vote to officially break ties with the Trade Union Congress

96% of Feminist Workers Union members have voted to cuts tie with the TUC both The United Steelworkers & Brotherhood of The Sea have renamed themselves after their members voted in line with the FWU. The latter adding international to their name and the former changed to Industrial Workers of Prydain Federation. Another union Transport and General Workers' Federation which never been formally linked to the TUC, has agreed join the International Workers Assembly which the three unions have formed. The Assembly seems to follow the seem structure as the TUC but will allow foreign unions to join and have in the first time in trade union history, they will offer associate membership to the Guilds which in current times have represented contractors and self employed trades people such as plumbers, mechanics, chefs etc.

Acting President of the Assembly, Dyfan Wren has said that time for militant trade unionism is at a end in the face of the fully globalised labour market and that the Prydain labour movement should forces on defending the hard won rights & create international worker solidarity.

The Trade Union Congress in response have fired fifty staff in their offices and inside sources told CBS they are middle of a press blackout.

"To say Chair Pierce and the Central council are angery is a understatement, within minutes of the International Workers Assembly becoming public, security in all the TUC offices went around snatching people's mobile phones and barred them from leaving till they faced question from office management. I heard some people couldn't leave till three in the morning."

One of the source told CBA, at current moment the Assembly only has 15% of the membership numbers the TUC but it seems plan to make it up for that by allowing Guilds and foreign members in.



Run up to 2021 Tynwald Election

The Progressive Democratic Party have finally publicised their party logo and slogan alongside releasing their 2021 manifesto, their key pledges are forces on greater transparency in government, with their flagship policy is the Fix-term act which they say will make the Qunie democratic reforms permeant by forcing the Tynwald to dissolve every six years as well as creating the House Reforms Act which would reform the system of committees that replaced the House of Lords with a First Estate, where 60% of its member would be direct elected every eight years and the 40% will be made up of committee members picked by the Prime Minister.

On economy they will peruse a free trade deal covering the Isles of Prydain, sign similar agreements West & East of the Thaumantic sea but ensuring labour standards are not weaken in the pursuit. The party says that they want to strengthen the current Social Democratic Corporate system which means reforming the Industrial Relations Act 1961 to end what they call " Rabid trade unionism" which only creates "Division..." and "rips whole communities apart."


Join CBA on the main channel or online where we be talking to a member of the Trade Union Congress, United Church of Prydain Clergy and a member of the public to talk about Progressive Democratic Party's manifesto in great detail.

Opinion Piece by Jean-Marc Boulet , a member of the Hadamar-Siegen Followership

The creation of the International Workers Assembly is a watershed moment in industrial relations within the Commonwealth, it should be a new chapter moving away from the monthly strikes that dominated the 60s and the on-going racketing from trade unions infected by the Prydain crime families.

The current system in Prydain is a simple but effective a de-facto close shop policy in every private enterprise if they are not, the said infected trade unions send grunts to terrorise individual entrepreneurs till they give in or shut down. This is primary reason the economy has been in Stagflation for the last eight years with a decade of stagnation before that, I would say is a result of economic mismanagement and bad fiscal policy but gives that there is any kind of management at all. The Treasury and wider civil service has a brain drain crisis since the late 90s after the government loosened restrictions on the ability citizens have to migrant. Nearly all the bright talented young single civil servants and professionals moved aboard in the search for more freedom & opportunities with a large chunk moving to the neighbouring United Republics or countries in the continent such as the Holy Frankish Republic & Eiffelland.

The Treasury has been side-lined by the Lord Protector Wyddfa since he took the title in 1995, himself being Treasurer from 1979-1993. From the start of 1996 the Wyddfa agenda was installed in the Treasurer, the agenda it is self is slow dip feed of Quantitative easing to plug the gap between rapid failing national productivity vs the moderate standards of living the general public were used. The Wyddfa agenda also included moving to a mix market economy this would be done by mixture of indicative planning in strategic industries and supporting the creation of more private enterprise through mild liberalisation of the labour market but these polices were fought back sometimes violent with the most extreme case when two employees of a car tire factory kidnapped their HR manager in 2004. Both were know for their extreme rhetoric and part of the Trade Union Congress who quickly thrown them under the bus, they were later charged and given fifteen year sentence.

Any further attempts to create a mix market ended after the joint air traffic controllers & Transport and General Workers' Federation strike of 2007 effetely grind locking the country's supply chain for three months. The dispute was caused by the government plans to contract out key logistics services for the public sector and cut the salaries of air traffic controllers. This was a genuine attempt of some fiscal responsibility but Wyddfa intervened rolling back the proposed plans after the disputation caused wide speared food shortages.

Now Workers are finally freeing themselves from the shackles of the TUC now it is time for wider society in Prydain alongside successful democratic & economic reforms shall bring the nation out the hole it has dig itself.
