Hi guys,
 
David Gould has declared his readiness to take over
the burdens of governing the United Kingdom. The king has appointed him with
immediate effect.
 
David's also playing Italy in the 1936 game Dirk's
running.
 
To allow for sufficient time to negotiate, I'm
setting the deadline for next Wednesday, 30 June. You'll find David's mail
adress further below.
 
I'm now also giving everyone a clean slate in terms
of grace periods (i.e. two 6 hour grace periods) as a new player has
joined.
 
Have a nice weekend. And lets have those Three
Lions weep bitter tears! Smile
 
Charles
Hallo zusammen,

 
let me note again that I enter illegal orders as simple hold orders, as
has occurred this season. I recommend testing whether your orders are all
legal by entering them into the Realpolitik module, for I don't always get
round to looking things over. I've been away in Weimar and hence both didn't
round to doing so and had some work to do first upon my return before getting
to the adjucation. I hope the delay hasn't overly taxed your patience.
 
Now what happened this season? For starters, Switzerland once again
changed hands - and a similar fate befell Egypt. The French may have been
kicked out of Scotland, but they've now made themselves comfortable in the
British capital, hardly welcome news to a Prime Minister who's now received
similarly bad news from the Low Countries and the North Sea. Shall
England have to brace herself for another 1066 or triumph as in
1588?
 
In other news, we now also say farewell to the last independent minor
power. Morocco (historically divided into a French and Spanish protectorate,
plus an international zone - in my game lumped together as one minor power)
finally succumbs fully to foreign influence.
 
The Winter 1940 Moves are due NLT 6PM CET on Wednesday, 23
June. Now, gotta root for the South Africans! Trash that
trainwreck Tricolore team! Spank those spoilt superstars! Bafana
Bafana, make your nation proud!

 
Liebe Grüsse,
 

Charles

PRESS:
 
POLISH PRESS: Dateline Warsaw: The Foreign Minister today released an
intercepted internal German government memo proposing a revision of the
Lebensraum concept from an eastern orientation to a western focus. Reached for
comment at one of Gdansk's many luxury sea-side resorts, a group of Belgians
on holiday seemed un-moved by the news. "British bosses, German bosses, it's
all machts nichts to us," said one member of the group, adding "Either way, we
get good cheese, bier, and football. The rest, we can live with."

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
