    SoCRER CONGRESS APPROVES NEW AND DEREGULATED COMMODITIES

    Free Trade of Capital Duties Returns

    October 27 2017
    Elephant and Castle, SoCRER - The SoCRER Senate Committee on Commerce and Manufactures yesterday evening approved the recommendation from the House Committee on Commerce and Manufactures on the new and deregulated commodities for a general release on SoCRER regulated markets and exchanges in South Himyar. Most notable among them are such commodities as the much anticipated entry of Capital Duties on local SoCRER regulated exchanges. The entry of Capital Duties allows for their freest exchange between private citizens and corporations on new Human Commodity Exchanges, not since experienced for three-hundred years, with a potential for great commercial and social success. The Southern Pharmaceutical Manufactory (SPM), owned by the Engellexic Thaumantic Company, yesterday also had approved and released the fruits of what has been the most determined lobbying effort in the Engellexian Republic over the last decade: the first batch of central nervous system stimulants, for the now approved and upcoming loosening of the Regulations on Capital Duties Medication Practices, to be made immediately available to SoCRER markets, though no restrictions are imposed to prevent the indirect release and sale to NoCRER.

    What has truly sparked controversy, however, is the unanimous approval of a new class of transport vessel, the human commodity tanker, for construction and sale within SoCRER. The patent finalization, approved only a weeks ago by the Engellexian Republic Patents Commission, is the second of its kind to take place over the course of the last three months when a specialised articulated lorry for the transportation of the human commodity was approved within SoCRER. It has left market speculators hesitant, given the volume of human commodity trade necessary to render such transports commercially viable, and thoroughly outraged the growing contingent of obsolescent transport companies and drivers who feel they're being left behind from the mass-industrialisation and liberation of the Human Commodity Market.

    The position of SMTEs is certainly quite clear, that such growing developments in SoCRER are not sustainable, economically or socially, and that the Southern Congress needs to urgently reconsider approvals, said Theseus Woollingham, Spokespersons of SMTEs (Small, Medium Transport Enterprises), an organisation founded five days ago with the regressive intention to protect the personal and individual interests of small, inefficient transport workers against a revolution of technology, efficiency, and unprecedented potential for high productivity within that particular market.

    Transportation of Capital Duties and their usage within industry and manufacturers is but a tiny percentage of the markets and industries involved, yet the human commodity niche is being catered to almost exclusively over the past four months here, in SoCRER. The consolidation of wealth by those at the top of these companies, markets and industries is potentially destructive to our society, and economy. Vast levels of power, political and economical, is being directed to them at unprecedented levels. Should this continue as is, it should develop into a monstrous recession and millions of jobs lost, both for transport workers, and those within industries about to have Capital Duties introduced. The irresponsibility being displayed here is frankly disturbing, stated Theseus Woollingham.

    Responding to these accusations, Leta Saru, Public Relations Director for Henrietta Shipbuilders, a subsidiary of the Engell-Himyar Trading Company, patent holder and manufacturer of the human commodity tanker, stated, Henrietta Shipbuilders is a pioneer in the development and technological advancement of commercial vessels and warships. To sustain our corporate success, the success of our local communities, and the economic success of SoCRER, as a corporation we must be successful in understanding and being ahead of emerging industry demands. Quite frankly, capital determines the profitability of a corporation. If Henrietta Shipbuilders is to remain one of the largest employers in Henrietta, and continue to contribute handsomely to the treasury of the Republic, then we must be permitted to follow capital without the weak moral oversight being levied by questionable organisations, such as SMTEs.

    The Elephant Human Commodity Exchange (EHCX) opens to traders October 30 2017.

    THAUMANTIC GAMES ANNOUNCED
    Thaumantic Games - a First Republic Marvel


    November 1 2017
    Dulwich, NoCRER - This evening, his Mightiness the Lord Protector of the Republic publicly addressed the First Republic from Wuffingas Court, in Dulwich, the unanimous agreement of the Council of the Republic to the foundation and hosting of the largest celebratory games of culture, war and civilisation in European history, the Thaumantic Games - a First Republic Marvel.

    Announcing the conditions of entry for the various events, including the names of the fleets and squadrons of the three Admiralties eligible to compete, and their counterparts in the First Republic and First Continental Armies and the Republic Air Force, the Lord Protector declared, I am of the expectation to witness Europe's most qualified men and women demonstrate their raw capability to fight and be victorious. The Republic Navy itself possessing of tremendous strength and experience will hold the attention and emotion of every citizen of the First Republic, the excitement and the marvel of naked competition will become our sport, our main interest will exist alongside that passionate hope that Our men and women win, and forever lead - with that very same raw and vibrant determination - our Republic Navy, our First Armies, and our Republic Air Force to new victories, for you - the free citizens, of the First Republic.

    With surprisingly little time for preparation, each fleet, regiment, and air fleet, must select their most competent fighters to compete on their behalf; for the fleets and air fleets that will consist of three warships or three fighter jets. The competing teams will be informed of their opponent, and will be secretly directed to their own, individual starting locations, themselves located throughout the Thaumantic Domain, by the Thaumantic Games Executive Committee. The winning teams move on to the next round, while the losers are eliminated.

    Cultural events will follow their own unique rules and scheduling.

    Many political analysts and commentaries in NoCRER and SoCRER believe that this is in actuality a discreet modernisation exercise by the Council of the Republic, that they are simply testing military capabilities on the eve of the 40th anniversay of the War of the Main, and are seeking a progressive means to the scrappage of obsolete warships and equipment and an acceptable reasoning for the construction of a new era of military hardware. The Lord Protector announced, as a particular of the rather grand reward system, that damaged military equipment and hardware will all be fully compensated by new era replacements. Fallen men and women shall be respectfully remembered, their places filled by a new generation of men and women trained to the highest standard of modern warfare.

    Whatever the outcome may be, the whole of Europe will be watching as the Thaumantic Games unveils, and witness, as the Erumpetine Broadcasting Council endeavours to provide twenty-four-hour coverage of encounters and events, as they happen, the success or the failure of the First Sport of the First Republic.

    Understanding that the upcoming "Thaumantic Games" contain the planned sacrifice of human lives and noting that the commodification of human individuals in the First Republic does not stop at the continued legality of slavery within Engellex, we feel it necessary to publically voice our condemnation of this event. The celebration of this blood sport in the Engellexic public media speaks loudly of the degrees of barbarism our former colonial overlords still maintain.

    The Socialist World Republic wishes it to be know that we encourage any and all sailors and servicemen threatened by this senseless and disrespectful plan, to abandon their post and choose honorable defection over dishonorable murder in the name of sports and military modernization. We are fully prepared to offer amnesty and protection to anyone wishing to choose this path.

    Under supervision by the National Committee for Justice and the Rejuvenation of Socialism
    While we wish to express our fullest desire not to interfere with the internal matters and affairs of the First Republic of Engellex. The international impact of these Thaumantic Games do urge us to voice some respectful concerns regarding the seemingly pointless loss of life during these war exercises. The terrible loss of life of one's military assets is a terrible, but essential thing during war times and civilized states always seek to minimize the loss of life. The fact that the Engellexian military deems it a positive thing to sacrifice their own so willingly and during peace-time would make one believe that they seek to maximize the loss of the nation's youth and even experienced veterans in pointless deaths. There are other ways to recruit, train and appoint the best your nation has to offer to the right position within the armed forces without having your forces kill each other and appointing those who have successfully murdered their brothers-in-arms.

    We urge Dulwich to reconsider their point of view on this matter and spare the lives of those who would already sacrifice themselves so willingly to defend them. However we also wish to state that the Democratic Socialist Republic of Kadikistan will go no further than voicing these concerns, the latter simply being the result of our humanitarian nature. It is up to the Engellexian people to decide their fate.

    As we have conducted our research in the First Republic we have come to know and appreciate the Engells as a people with great fondness. At the prospect of losing any of these precious lives we are most deeply concerned and fear for the subsequent livelihoods of family they leave behind. We thereby call upon the world to consider donating to our new fund, the "Fallen First Fund", to assist families affected by the First Republic's unique casualty spurring event.

    While publicly the Absolon Foundation is most deeply concerned with the potential loss of life entailed in the Thaumantic Games, privately we are nevertheless enticed by the spectacle of military prowess that may soon be put on display. If so permitted, we intend to place Absolon Researchers as close to the action as possible so we may better understand several spheres of war rarely seen in the modern context. The foundation vows to operate in full compliance of First Republic authorities, and hereby permits full dissemination by these same authorities of all data, documents, footage, and ultimately oral reports collected by Absolon if we are so permitted to research the games intimately.

    EHTC Stock Rises on Duke's Vision
    New Five-Year Plan :- Cultivation Expansions

    December 13 2017
    Henrietta, So.C.R.E.R. - Lord Guarantor of the Engell-Himyar Trading Company, Lord Horatio Saville, Duke of Clarence and Nolland, has publicly addressed a widely circulating rumour, confirming the accuracy of its contents. In doing so, the Lord Guarantor of the EHTC announced his vision that promised 35% of his personal land holdings in the Constituent Republic of Camden to the EHTC in order to permit expansion efforts for the cultivation of plants used to produce popular narcotics for export, as well as presenting a five-year corporate strategy to the Board of Guarantors with the goal of putting the Company on the right footing to take advantage of political situations throughout Europe that have positively influenced prices of popular exports.

    The EHTC issued a press statement clarifying the contents of the Duke of Clarence and Nolland's promise; he is providing the EHTC with a no-rent tenancy on over two-hundred-thousand acres of land in northern Camden for coca cultivation, with aims to capitalise on rising prices from drug enforcement policies in other countries and allow it to be aggressive in claiming market share from other producers. According to the terms of the tenancy agreement, the EHTC will make yearly payments to the Duke of Clarence and Nolland equivalent to a percentage of the operating profits, and will not be responsible for any payments if they operate at a loss - in the unlikely event. The agreement includes a tenancy period of two-hundred years; the percentage of the operating profits to be paid is not publicly available.

    The hazardous and unusual agreement has been received positively and with applause by financial analysts as a courageous move toward taking the EHTC to a position of dominance in this particular area. his Grace is basically placing a huge bet on his own personal ability to steer the EHTC into a position of leadership, globally, once more, said Isolt Sayre, a financial analyst with the Republic Mercantile House of Clarence. It demonstrates his profound confidence in himself, the Board of Guarantors, and the EHTC. Investors will respond to that confidence.

    The EHTC Board of Guarantors also received the vision positively, as they did sign off on the Lord Guarantor's five-year plan, which is presently being described as imperial in a letter issued to shareholders. The Board of Guarantors believes this strategy and ambition will return the EHTC to a standard of profitability, within a year, and to a position of dominance within Europe, within the span of five years, not since seen for two centuries.

    EHTC stock has seen an uptick since the news was released, continuing a trend which began when the Elephant Human Commodity Exchange (EHCX) opened in October, 2017.

    SERENIERRE MAD or is it DANGEROUS?
    A Desperate Greedy Wolf Trying to Fit into Sheep's Clothing

    December 13 2017
    Dulwich, No.C.R.E.R. - The People's Republic of Serenierre has been adopting positions on regional and European peace worthy of commendation, if they otherwise were not, of course, particularly weak attempts to mask the truer face of Serenierre :- a State desperate to present itself as something quite independent of, and a robust challenge to the supremacy of Bourgogne - culturally, politically and economically - on the continental mainland of Gallia. As the Engellexian Republic is terribly familiar with, desperation breeds irrationality, all precursors to insanity; and the observation of statements and decisions over the past several months unfortunately and undeniably demonstrate how true that is, and, according to several anonymous civil servants working within Parlement, Dulwich is quietly concerned.

    The unnamed servants of the Engellexian Republic Parlement have all pointed to several specific incidents highlighting the inconsistency and threat of Serenierre. The first is the vacillation on the Borovangese civil war, which did regularly change from month to month from political support to a political settlement and peace for Borovanger, to outright anger and imperialist considerations - the annexation of much of Borovanger. Dulwich understands that Villesen was originally displeased that similarly minded governments in Gallia-Germania were acting within the Borovangese civil war without her consent, then apparently approving of their very own imperialist initiatives in, at least, southern Borovanger. They were unable to recall quite how many times Villesen changed course, for a political settlement and peace, a great fortune to the people of Borovanger that they were permitted some remblance of a sovereign nation of their own, still.

    Most recently was Villesen's enthusiastic approval and public appeal for Harmony and Good-Neighbourliness between Serenierre and other nations in Gallia and North Himyar :- Pan-Gallian-ness. Despite the rather admirable and progressive character of such diplomatic appeals, the Martinique Government encouraged open hostility and aggression between Gallian nations and Nichtstein. Coinciding with this, Villesen orchestrated a missile test within the particularly claustrophobic Retalian Sea - not that the Engellexian Republic would have permitted it unchallenged in the Thaumantic - reassuring regional neighbours and partners that any sense of feeling threatened by Serenierre was incorrect. Nichstein and Eiffelland were apparently warned, and despite the confirmation of this officially by the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Nichtstein, how can anyone be so sure? Altburg is not so likely to publicly admit to egg upon its face in the wake of an increasingly belligerent Serenierre. But egg on its face does the Engellexian Republic believe it has.

    Additionally, the Martinique Government has been notably absent on several matters internationally, such as the diplomatic initiative from Kashtan, the International Open Forum, an honest advancement for European harmony and good-neighbourliness. And while Villesen had previously not hesitated to offer support to the Serenierre's allies (Kadikistan), and has certainly been asserting the necessity of mutual defence treaties between acceptable Gallian nations, less military robust nations, which curiously includes Andaluz, Villesen has recently shown a cold shoulder to Ivar.

    These very public observations have also been coupled with the troubling rumors from the many levels of the Engellexian Republic Parlement. The Martinique Government has apparently become resolved to a successful and especially aggressive isolation and confrontation with the Engellexian Republic, by continental Gallian States and those of North Himyar. It has been quietly pointed out that Serenierre is aligning a string a nations, not especially friendly or progressive, to her own cause of trade and economic advancement; but hidden within these rather forward agreements are the mutual defence pacts, tying them all to the whims of Villesen. A concern for Dulwich? Absolutely. The Engellexian Republic has been labouring under the belief of mutually respecting peace and stability within the Thaumantic Ocean Area, between it and Andaluz, since the war, however that does appear a false hope. Gallega, well, they have been attempting to corner the Republic for many centuries, unsuccessfully.

    Anonymous sources within the Engellexian Republic Parlement have been unwilling to speculate on the cause of Serenierre's seeming instability and aggression. The Serenien embassy in Dulwich has refused comment.

    Embassy of Serenierre || Dulwich
    The article published recently in The Republic is incorrect on a few counts and we would suggest corrections on the following points:

    1. The République Populaire did send a delegate to the IOF summit in Kashtan.
    2. The Confederation of Borovanger has never been a subservient entity of the Villesen Government. We have defended their independence and neutrality.
    3. The République Populaire does not have a policy of antagonising any nation. We believe in dialogue and the Government has asked us to relay the message of peace to Dulwich. The object of greater regional cooperation is in the interests of all nations and peoples of the world.
    The Government wishes to inform the publishers of the Republic to contact the Commissariat for External Relations directly rather than approaching the local consular staff in the future. Responses shall be more forthcoming.

    FAJC DIRECTIVE 4102018
    Foreign Affairs Joint Committee Decommissions Embassies; Partial Suspension of Non-Civilian Traffic


    April 10 2018
    Dulwich, NoCRER - The Foreign Affairs Joint Committee has delivered quite a monumental surprise to the political landscape of Europe this afternoon, having ordered the closure of all First Republic embassies and consulates in Gallia-Germania, Scania, Toyou, and the Implaria; the diplomatic establishment within Chernovy being the only exception.

    FAJC Directive 4102018, which was issued only moments ago, demands the immediate cessation of all diplomatic engagements with representatives from - and specifies every government from Gallia-Germania, Scania, Toyou, and the Implaria, with the exception of Chernovy, along with the immediate return of all ambassadors and emissaries of the Engellexian Republic Parlement within the borders, belonging to the respective sovereign States, to Hammersmith for debrief.

    In addition to this, passage of all Ivernian, Caledonian, and Carintho-Harkaner non-civilian traffic through First Republic waters and airspace has been suspended by Engellexian Republic Customs, and the Foreign Affairs Joint Committee has warned Engellexian companies presently engaged in business with Ivernian, Caledonian, and Carintho-Harkaner registered organisations that no non-civilian traffic will be permitted to pass through waters and airspace sovereign to the First Republic, regardless of any pre-approved customs and immigration documentation. The Foreign Affairs Joint Committee has additionally advised that the suspension and prohibition of non-civilian traffic may be extended to Warre, Borovanger, and Bourgogne.

    Reports indicate that the vote to enact the declaration was strongly contested in the Foreign Affairs Joint Committee, with Lady Minerva Hamilton the Marchioness of Bissee and Lady Eugenia Osbert Somnolen the Duchess of Osrhoenesee, both Southern industralists, reacting angrily to the proposal and immediately voting against it. Count Vasili Andreyevich Vyzamitinov, Lord Horatio Saville the Duke of Clarence and Nolland, and Lady Rosamund Cavendish the Duchess of Kew are all believed to have immediately voted to pass the declaration into law.

    The final vote was cast by Lord Benjamin Boxer, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Joint Committee, after a heated debate with both Lady Minerva Hamilton and Lady Eugenia Osbert Somnolen. The outcome saw the Chairman siding with the supporting group, consisting of traditionally staunch First Republicans.

    The Commonwealth of Caledonia and the State of Loago are distressed by the sudden announcements coming from the First Republic of Engellex. The nations of the Viridian Union, the aforementioned and the Confederal Republic of the Tribes of Cabaon will hope that peace will prevail so that a better tomorrow can be possible for the generations to come. Until receiving a communique from the authorities of the First Republic, asking for the termination of their presence, the representatives of the three countries will continue to function in the Northern and Southern Constituent Republics, to represent the Cabaonian, Loagin and Caledonian peoples living there.

    While we as of yet do not understand why the First Republic considers to block the shipping of non-civilian transports of Caledonia, Carinthia and Ivernia specifically, we feel that this must put us on alert. We hope that in time this will prove to be a false alert, but until the First Republic will explain its stance on the Commonwealth and the other Viridian Union nations, the Republican Army of Caledonia and the Loagin Security Force will be put on medium alert.

    NAVAL SHIPBUILDING PROGRAM APPROVED
    Hammersmith and Henrietta Secure Shipbuilding Contracts


    April 11 2018
    Hammersmith, NoCRER - Hammersmith East Dockyards Company (HEDC) and Henrietta Shipbuilders have both secured funding for an extensive shipbuilding program, their spokespeople have revealed during the annual Republic Industry Conference today in Hammersmith. The program will be managed at parent-level by the Lord Guarantors of the Engellexic Thaumantic Company (ETC) and the Engell-Himyar Trading Company (EHTC), of which the HEDC and Henrietta Shipbuilders are subsidiaries respectively - the ETC and the EHTC were both recently granted planning permissions and research allocations at parent level - and while no official confirmation has been given, most industry observers agree it will be almost certainly focused on capital ship-building, namely a new class of aircraft carrier for the Republic Navy.

    HEDC Chief Executive Sir George Fromanteel refused to comment on the nature of the shipbuilding program, and when asked when he expected the program to be completed he would only say that it is a three-year construction schedule, with clear set buildings plans and timetables - we do not expect cost or time overruns. He was more willing though to discuss the program in a general sense, explaining that both Hammersmith (East Dockyards Company) and Henrietta (Shipbuilders) have been urging a comprehensive redevelopment program for the Republic Navy for some time. We've had the facilities and the expertise to construct technologically greater classes, and refine further current classes for a while, but the situation within the Engellexian Republic Parlement required significant will and wisdom, only now found and realised.

    When the Chief Executive of Henrietta Shipbuilders, Lady Jane Stuart, was asked what had prompted the breakthrough, she answered, as you are no doubt fully aware, through the EHTC and the ETC, Henrietta (Shipbuilders) and Hammersmith (East Dockyards Company) have been lobbying for such a program for a number of years now, and we learnt in January that we had finally succeeded - although this was not public knowledge at the time.

    The Republic Naval Council was reached for comment, but declined.

    We are highly alarmed by the decision of the First Republic to stop diplomatic contact with almost the complete world. We do not understand the rationale behind this decision.
    In any case, the closure of embassies and consulates will lead to practical problems. What must be done when an Eiffellandian looses his or her passport during his or her stay in the First Republic? And what must be done when an Engellexian looses his or her passport during his or her stay in Eiffelland? Furthermore, ceasing all diplomatic ties will also have economic consequences, because it will hamper trade.
    We will continue to follow the events in the First Republic.

    REPUBLIC NAVY ANNOUNCE KEEL-LAYING EVENTS
    The Lord Protector to Attend Ceremonies in Hammersmith and Henrietta


    April 30 2018
    Hammersmith, NoCRER - In a statement issued this morning, the Republic Naval Council has confirmed the start of construction of a new class of aircraft carriers to replace existing flagships of the Admiralties of the Republic Navy, which are expected to be completed within four to five years at the Hammersmith East Dockyards Company (HEDC) and Henrietta Shipbuilders.

    In the statement, released by the Permanent Secretary to the Republic Naval Council, several details of the new warships were revealed, including confirmation that it will be a development based on the existing Gloriana-class aircraft carriers, the First Carrier Program. The initial schedule involves construction of three of the vessels, one for each of the Admiralties, with the possibility of a second schedule for another three to be evaluated at the completion of the first vessel.

    Many analysts within Hammersmith and Henrietta have already agreed that the construction program will act as a preliminary exercise of the Engellexian Republic's ability to mobilise itself, within and in unison of both the Engellexian Republic Parlement and the constituent Companies of the Republic, in anticipation of an acceleration of the Republic Navy's modernisation and expansion efforts. The Engellexian Republic Parlement legislated approval to peg the First Republic's spending of its war departments at five percents of GDP, increasing defence estimates to $192 billion within ten years; the Republic Navy will see its estimates reach $105 billion within that ten year period.

    The statement also revealed that the FCP-class will utilize technological innovations realised from the operation and re-evaluation of the Gloriana-class of carriers and that their hulls will afford the utmost of protection, benefiting from the most advanced armour layering technologies conceived by the First Republic.

    Focus was drawn away from the impressive specifications however, when it was announced that his Mightiness the Lord Protector, Walter Drake the Viscount Drake, Admiral-General of the Republic will be in attendance at the keel-laying ceremonies at Hammersmith and Henrietta this week, in order to personally usher in the new era with the vessels and formalize commencement of their construction.

    The Lord Protector is expected to depart Hammersmith on the late evening of Tuesday for Henrietta on Republic Prime - the Ēastre supersonic jet aircraft of the Lord Protectorship, where he will perform a ceremonial inspection of the Henrietta Shipbuilders' yards before the vessel’s address and commencement of construction; the shipyards of the HEDC in Hammersmith will partake in a similar ceremonial event on Tuesday afternoon.

    LORD PROTECTOR ATTENDS HENRIETTA CEREMONY
    KEEL LAID FOR NEW FLAGSHIP OF THE EASTERN FLEET

    Henrietta, SoCRER - Free citizens of the First Republic rejoiced this week as his Mightiness the Lord Protector, Viscount Walter Drake visited the Henrietta Admiralty in Mary-le-Bone for a ceremonial inspection of the Henrietta Shipyards, and to publicly partake in festivities in celebration of the freshly laid keel of the new flagship of the Henrietta Admiralty, which has been named ERS Madness of the Duke.

    Arriving in Henrietta on the Ēastre supersonic jet Republic Prime, the Lord Protector was delivered to Henrietta Shipyards aboard the ERS Black Leviathan, the last of the Lord Protector class battleships that also serves as the flagship of the Henrietta Admiralty, and was escorted ERS Dreadnought and ERS Thunderer of the Thunderer class of cruisers; all warships bearing the huge ceremonial Colours of the Republic, and the flagship with those of the Lord Protector.

    On his arrival in Henrietta from Hammersmith, his Mightiness was greeted by an estimated one-hundred-thousand patriotic citizens, as well Admiral Angmedus' Lobsters (Henrietta Marines) and the Lady Governor of Henrietta (Mary-le-Bone) with her Henriettan Mounted Troopers, before speaking publicly to confirm the name of the new Henrietta Admiralty flagship, and announce further details of her construction.

    Among the information released, was the name of the warship - decided upon by the Naval Board of Henrietta, and the confirmation that it will become the new flagship of the Eastern Fleet (Henrietta), the admiralty of the Republic Navy charged with the responsibility of protecting the interests of the Engellexian Republic east of the Clarencian Sea. The Engell-Himyar Trading Company retains prerogatives over the Eastern Fleet, as does the Engellexic Thaumantic Company with the Clarencian Fleet (Elephant).

    The Lord Protector also confirmed that the ERS Madness of the Duke will be junior to the ERS Gogmagog - the Hammersmith Admiralty and Republic Navy flagship, but equally as technologically advanced and alongside the ERS Gogmagog, and the third vessel yet to be named for the Clarencian Fleet, will be the most advanced vessels ever commissioned by the Republic Navy on completion of her construction.

    When questioned by the free press of Henrietta regarding the absence and isolation of the First Republic from Europe's affairs this year, the Lord Protector responded directly, addressing that the presence of the First Republic in all affairs pertaining to her interests has been absolute, if less public that one here, or abroad, would expect, and that there is a time for spectacle, and a time for action. In relation to those competing foreign powers that share the Thaumantic Ocean and their hostility toward the First Republic, the Lord Protector responded that the First Republic will realise an agreeable containment of aggression posed by foreign powers and that the Council of the Republic does not idle in its duty to remain informed on the intentions and their motivations of all that presently share the Thaumantic Ocean.

    While at this stage the Republic Navy has remained tight lipped regarding the exact specifications of the Gogmagog class aircraft carrier, the Lord Protector is expected to take personal delivery of the finished aircraft carriers for ceremonial commissioning in Henrietta in approximately five years; the ERS Gogmagog will be expected alongside the ERS Madness of the Duke, if not slightly earlier, in Hammersmith, having been laid down the day before.

    KEELS LAID NORTH AND SOUTH
    THE NAVAL PROGRAM ENTERS CONSTRUCTION PHASE

    Henrietta, SoCRER - The First Republic's Naval Program has taken its biggest stride forward today, as the giants of the shipbuilding industry - Hammersmith East Dockyards Company (of the Engellexic Thaumantic Company), Henrietta Shipbuilders (of the Engell-Himyar Trading Company), and Harland & Wolff Heavy Industries - launch the construction of fifteen ships of war in six cities, three Constituent Republics, North and South, in the Engellexian Republic. In a combined promotional and resources acquisition effort advertised on the Erumpetine Broadcast Company, both the ETC and the EHTC are calling on women and men to seek out employment and assist in the First Republican effort of the naval construction program through many industries and companies in the supply line.

    At the launch event in Henrietta, held aboard the ERS Black Leviathan - flagship of the Henrietta Admiralty, Southern President Seraphina Underwood made a short speech celebrating the commencement of the construction efforts - the laying of the keels of two new cruisers and two new destroyers at the Henrietta Shipbuilders shipyard in Henrietta. The Southern Constituent Republics, a name that does in itself conjure imagery and feeling of progress, of ambition and possibility. It is quite often said that the mark of every great society is the journey it has endured on its path to glory. What a journey these Southern Constituent Republics have taken, from our early Northern explorers that landed on these shores, we have endured great hardship and crisis. Less independently minded people would have faltered, sought to submit themselves to the whims of stronger and lesser peoples, as we have witnessed too many times before (Socialist World Republic), but the Southern people forged onward. Like its untamed and, at times, unforgiving landscape, these Southern Constituent Republics show true strength, fortitude. We have admirably developed every branch of our civilisation, and today your President stands with you in commemoration of a defining point in our journey. The construction of a fleet of warships here, in these Southern Constituent Republics, a demonstration of our shared progress, our ambition, and the possibility of a tomorrow which will be forged by the First Republic, of which we are part. Do share in that great and swelling civic pride, that which can be felt in the skill and productivity of our women and men of these shipyards, for these Southern Constituent Republics are, themselves, constructing ships of war that by their technological progression and number rank amongst the greatest Europe has seen.

    The Naval Program will see construction commencing, with the laying of keels, today across the Engellexian Republic; at the Hammersmith East Dockyards Company (HEDC Hammersmith) two destroyers have had their keels laid, joining a carrier already under construction; at HEDC Dagenham the construction of an amphibious assault ship commenced; HEDC Newgate, two attack submarines; also in Hammersmith, Harland & Wolff Heavy Industries laid the keels of three frigates. In the Southern Constituent Republics - Henrietta Shipbuilders (HS Henrietta) started the construction of two cruisers and two destroyers, to join a carrier presently being constructed; in HS Battlesea, an attack submarine; in HS New Nolland, two amphibious transport docks. HEDC Fort Burgess will begin construction of the third carrier on completion of shipyard improvements to expanding operations to incorporate construction and maintenance of two carriers together.

    ETC and EHTC sources are promising strong local economies as the process of construction progresses, from the war ships to the facilities new and old being built and improved, both Companies are exuding confidence, with partner companies experiencing positive market listings.

    The order of strike fighter aircraft for the new carriers also went into production today, with the Republic Naval Council confirming a rate of thirty a year.

    SoCRER NAVAL EXERCISES
    Southern Admiralties Announce Joint Naval Exercises

    Henrietta, SoCRER - A combined fleet of Elephant Admiralty and Henrietta Admiralty warships will be seen departing their naval ports in Camden and Mary-le-Bone, SoCRER, next week, so announced after a joint public statement from Admiral Ebenezer Arkwright the First Lord of the Elephant Admiralty and Admiral Victoria Cobham the First Lord of the Henrietta Admiralty declaring the launch of a SoCRER Joint Admiralty Training exercise.

    In the press conference approximately an hour ago, Admiral Victoria Cobham indicated that these exercises are designed as to expand and improve on the experience and efficiency of the two Admiralties in deploying a Marine Expeditionary Brigade with three Carrier Strike Groups. The admiralties of Elephant and Henrietta command the Republic Navy's amphibious assault capabilities, and do so with a specialty. The goal is to further develop the highly qualified and respected relationship between the two Southern admiralties, in order to continue the enhancement of the Engellexian Republic's Thaumantic security after the unfortunate instability in Europe and its rapid escalation to war across three continents. We are also looking to assist in the further streamlining of internal communication within the Republic Navy; it is an area the Republic Naval Council will never be complacent on.

    Before the press conference was concluded Admiral Arkwright and Admiral Cobham released details on the units to participate. The combined SoCRER JAT Fleet, as it is termed, will consist of the ERS Henrietta's Peace (Henriettan), ERS Golden Bull (Elephentine), and ERS Gay Kraken (Elephentine) - three Gloriana-class aircraft carriers, three cruisers, six destroyers, three submarines, six amphibious assault ships, six amphibious transport docks, six dock landing ships, and one Marine Expeditionary Brigade.

    To support this exercise the admiralties of Henrietta and Elephant have been fully mobilised, and the Hammersmith Admiralty will be deploying a Carrier Strike Group centered on ERS Tegmentum to the Clarencian Sea.

    REPUBLIC AIR FORCE INCREASES PRESENCE
    Republic Air Force Improves Presence and Readiness in North Thaumantic


    Dulwich, NoCRER - The Republic Air Force is increasing its presence and readiness in the entire North Thaumantic Area as a result of the war in Galla-Germania. The increase in presence was first noticed an hour ago as two signals intelligence aircraft, believed to be Nimrod RI's, were seen taking off from their airbase just north of Cheapford, to be later confirmed by Air-General Catherine Janeway in a public announcement. Six of the aircraft in total are to be readied for round-the-clock intelligence operation in North Thaumantic, in the area specifically between Magna Risberge (Al-Kez) and Gouw Marken, and Gallega and the Coldherberge Islands (Islands of St. Brigida), in an effort to detect all military movements.

    Air-General Catherine Janeway issued her statement calling the changing situation of the Republic Air Force a normal security precaution and stated that it expects there to be no escalation of hostilities within the North Thaumantic Area. With the continued security distresss on the continent, we are merely taking a proactive measure to prevent any escalating incursions, spoke the Air-General.

    Also confirmed, the Republic Air Force increasing the number of Quick Reaction Alert aircraft on duty from four to sixteen.

    GALLIAN VIOLENCE AGAINST ENGELLS
    Ethnic Violence and Vandalism Against Engells in Contested Territories

    Elephant and Castle, SoCRER - Dozens of acts of vandalism and violence were committed overnight against Engell expatriates on the Coldherberge Isles (St. Brigida isles) and in Magna Risberge (Al-Kez). Amateur smartphone footage, verified by the Penny Republic, reveals numerous groups of Gallian vandals - notably Gallegan and Borovangian - engaged in the outrage of hate crimes ranging from the physical and sexual assault of ethnic Engell citizens to the destruction of Angelli-Lexen property present in the two contested territories.

    The flames from the destruction of the Pavilion of the Republic, an eighteenth century cultural institution established to foster improved trade and friendship between the Gallegan-occupied islands and the First Republic as well as providing a location of remembrance for expatriates, could be seen for miles. The destruction was an unnecessary evil, proclaimed Bess Rosemelda, Director of the Pavilion of the Republic. This tragedy, and the loss for our small community, words cannot convey the emotion and heartache.

    Anti-Engell sentiment was especially evident at defaced memorials dedicated to Engell expatriates lost at sea or simply from old age or poor health. Where are the Gallegan constables? one terrified expatriate asked, who did not wish to be identified. We abide by the law, we are productive with our employed skills, and fully participate in the taxation with very, very little representation, but have always been quite content because of the protection afforded to us by their own laws. What happened? How can it be seen that we are deserving of this?

    So far, local Gallegan and Borovangian authorities have declined to release images of vandals, and are not yet asking for information from witnesses of the many crimes committed,

    The Engellexic Thaumantic Company has expressed alarm at the permitted deterioration of public order and civility within the two territories.

    LORD COMMISSIONERS APPOINTED
    Appointments Made for the Officers of the Diplomatic Service


    Hammersmith, NoCRER - The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Joint Committee, Lord Benjamin Boxer, today announced the appointments of the Engellexian Republic's new diplomatic officers to the reformed diplomatic service around Europe. Baroness Concepta Sempringham has received the appointment as the first Lord Commissioner in Seaguard, for the High Commission of the North Germania and Vaalbara region; Lord Caractacus Pargiter has been appointed first Lord Commissioner in Tyachly, for the High Commission of the South Germania region; Lady Elizabeth Mergus appointed the first Lord Commissioner in Lonbrig, for the High Commission of the Scania region; and Lord Charles Demengeot has been nominated for the appointment to Tremere, as its first Lord Commissioner for the Gallia region. No woman or man are better equipped for the momentous operation of directing our outward interests to unstable, and thoroughly difficult regions of Europe. They represent the principles and values of First Republicanism quite well, and will represent the Engellexian Republic wonderfully before the other nations of Europe.

    Despite their new responsibilities as Lord Commissioners, the enthusiastic Lords and Ladies will still retain their memberships to the various Boards of the First Republic's Companies. The Lord Guarantor of the Engellexic Thaumantic Company, Count Vasili Andreyevich Vyazmitinov, remarked on the great honour it is for the Company to have two of its Board members appointed to the High Commissions; Baroness Concepta Sempringham and Lord Caractacus Pargiter sit on the ETC Board of Guarantors. Lady Elizabeth Mergus and Lord Charles Demengeot sit on the Board of Guarantors for the Engell-Himyar Trading Company.

    Northern President Anne Siward was uncharacteristically supportive of the Chairman's choice. They are honourable, and I believe are truly sensible to the high honour the Parlement has done them. I am of the opinion that they are equal to the command they are honoured with, and may be a difference to the nonsensical politics rampant upon the impoverished continent.

    The three Lord Commissioners will make their first appearances before the capitals of their hosting nations - Windhaven, L'viv, Alre - next Monday. Lord Charles Demengeot will have his nomination confirmed or rejected on Friday, along with those appointments to the High Commissions in Rouadi, and Maseru. The Consul-Generals and Consuls of the various other diplomatic offices have been appointed, and will be received on Monday. A nomination is yet to be made for the ambassador to the Kadikistani Union.

    Construction of the estates to accommodate the function and operation of the Republic's High Commissions will commence next month.
