  1. Mr. Speaker, I will be laying out the government’s current comprehensive approach to the energy price cap, as well as energy markets. The government is currently considering tying a windfall tax on supply side profits to pay for a freeze on the energy price cap. We are in consultations now and could happen before the next price cap comes into effect with the diligence of our Civil Service. This would be meant to provide confidence to households in their budgeting. This is the first step we are taking nationally. Our next steps nationally will include continuing our commitments to provide insulation to ever more households. We will be expanding our Winter Preparedness Campaign to a full-year and full-scale Energy Resilience Campaign. To initiate and continue that campaign we will be providing vouchers to homeowners and businesses to redeem in insulating their properties. This mobilises the private sector to handle the demand for more insulation nationwide with government providing the capital behind this Whole Nation effort. Furthermore, we will be exploring plans to increase our gas storage capacity to avoid shocks into the future In pursuit of market reforms we will be exploring Ofgem’s recommendations to delink renewable and fossil fuel prices, and we will engage the European Commission to consider placing mutual price caps on wholesale energy prices. We will propose the European Commission does so in exchange for international financial commitments to implement renewable energy plans. To increase supply we will also coordinate with international partners to encourage oil and gas producers globally to increase output. Both expanding renewable energy funding while increasing the incentives to produce more non-renewable energy at home and abroad will be our path to solving the global energy crisis in the short and long term. This is how we mobilise the Whole Nation to meet the demands of improving cost of living. I will be issuing a follow-on statement on addressing the cost of food, creating more food security, and doing so in a way that is beneficial to public health and finances alike.
  2. Good Evening. I address you tonight at the outset of my term as Prime Minister to address a poignant moment in our nation’s history. The catastrophic effect of inflation is profound. Food prices at the supermarkets continue to rise. Energy prices have been mitigated in the short term only through our actions in government. Many of you at home have seen energy bills come in at a smoothed rate increase of a few percent rather than a dramatic 72% increase. My first priority as Chancellor was to mitigate the effects of accelerating price increases for the many; my first priority as Prime Minister will be to continue that work, preserving the prosperity of our Whole Nation amidst challenging times. Those of you working in manufacturing, construction, and the service industries have seen the wholesale cost of your resources rise. In turn, the price of nearly everything for everyone else has risen as well. These price increases have been caused by a lack of foresight which is decades in the making. This lack of foresight is the fault of governments of all creeds and colours: the right, the left, and the centre. The crisis is global and prices are rising rapidly in every developed country. My government will take serious, sustained and dramatic action to ease the pain, but I have to be honest with you: it is not within my power to make this crisis disappear in the next year. This is a crisis in our living standards, our society, and of confidence in the institutions which failed us. As the war in Ukraine puts the future of Europe at risk, forcing millions to face an energy crisis and even famine, we must revoke once and for all our dependence on the corrupt, closed and belligerent governments who for too long dominated our supply of primary resources. We must develop energy and supply chain security at home, and lasting partnerships with reliable governments overseas. This is vital work, and it will not happen overnight. The rising prices we see tell us that we can no longer sustainably recover the resources needed to live the way we wish to live. There is no longer enough gas, no longer enough food, no longer enough water, and no longer enough wealth properly distributed to meet the needs of us all. Too many people this year will go cold, hungry, and without hope to provide for their loved ones during the holiday season. In the UK, we are seeing a reduction losses in living standards on a par with the Great Wars in Europe. In the face of this crisis, I can assure you that my government will put in place massive support to mobilise our whole nation and provide the resources needed to heat and feed every household. In return, I must ask you, if you can and if it is safe to do so, to think about using less this winter. Keep your thermostats set at no higher than 19 degrees, unless you have people with you who are extremely vulnerable to the cold. Donate unwanted or unneeded food to food banks. We will set a target to reduce gas usage by 10% this winter and 20% by the next by improving alternative energy production and construction. We will establish the trade agreements we need to lower tariffs on food imports while protecting our domestic farmers. We will set the many skilled workers in the country across energy, construction, and agriculture to the task of providing enough to all with government funding allowing claims for home insulation. Every bit of energy you save, food you give, and work you do may help someone else to survive this winter. This is a Whole Nation effort, and we will ask those in industry to participate in this effort by being prepared to sacrifice short term gains for long term national well being. The truth is there is not enough gas in the ground or food in the fields to resolve this crisis quickly. The challenges ahead are great, but our rewards for coming together as a nation are greater. By addressing the immediate needs we have in front of us, together, we can create the fundamental changes to make our country more resilient. We will no longer rely on dictators abroad or on an economic system that has failed to provide enough to enough of us. We will fundamentally alter the dynamic by which we address these problems with innovation, diplomacy, and colossal but pragmatic deployments of capital and national effort. During my campaign I outlined a month by month agenda of the actions my government will take. This agenda was prepared in coordination with the new members of the cabinet, and some of the most brilliant minds our country has to offer. The government has come to its reckoning with the reality of the moment and of the era. We have done away with leaders who are all bluster without much muster. This is a government that can self correct as the country demands. We will implement the holistic solutions to improve your living standards, revolutionise your government with innovation, turn the trend around for wealth inequality, and leverage our great minds to create a self sustaining energy independent Britain that reaches Net Zero ahead of schedule. We will not only preserve, but improve, the lives of hard working Britons today and for our grandchildren tomorrow. Thank you for the privilege to serve as your Prime Minister. Now, the work of a nation continues.

  4. Mr. Speaker, I introduced this bill to Parliament to address some of the same waste identified by the opposition and identified by this government alike. In the MOD alone it was identified 17 billion pounds of waste since 2010 and we have identified billions more since 2003. This bill mitigates waste seen across all governments by establishing independent committees that have the experts necessary to inform the Chancellor of waste before it happens rather than after. No, it is not a complete solution, but if this bill manages to save the government even 50% of annual waste this single piece of legislation will save us conservatively 1.5 Billion pounds of waste in the MOD alone while keeping procurement more efficient and on schedule. This bill is how we address our deficits while we improve delivery of services to and from the government, and redirect those funds to improving our services to the public overall and reducing the fiscal burdens on the taxpayer. I commend this bill to the House.
  5. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to address the Government and the opposition in my resignation as Chancellor of the Exchequer. I will begin by foremost addressing the leading cause of my resignation in the disjointed policy approach of the Government and the vitriol Members of Parliament have taken to each other. I have reconciled with the Prime Minister that amidst fast-paced negotiations it was genuine that he did not receive information of a 50 million pound concession to the Chinese Government in exchange for their gesture to accept 6 billion pounds for a 7 billion pound stake in nuclear provider Hinckley C. This was an oversight as the agreement was not formalized until the FCO and Chinese Foreign Ministry could formalize it. I have not, however, reconciled with the Prime Minister the disjointed policy approach of the Government or destroying an agreement with a 1 billion concession from China in exchange for 50 million on our part. While I will not disclose which of our allies, civil service members, and senior members of government expressed those concerns I will disclose that they were discussed frequently. It is critical that Members of Parliament, the civil service, and our allies coordinate closely while handling foreign policy. It is further critical that the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition may speak candidly in private. This requires a level of public respect for Great Britain itself that the opposition not only failed to show, but officially endorsed. I do not make these statements to harm my colleagues opposite political prospects. I make these statements to preserve the prospects of a United Kingdom. Great Britain cannot stand under such vitriol that we weaken ourselves abroad when Her Majesty’s official opposition reinforces statements such as the Government is going “cap in hand” to a foreign power. This was unequivocally false as demonstrated by the significant concessions received. Too many Members of Parliament took the moment in which our workers truly were being threatened as a moment for political opportunism and prideful boasting. The trade threat was disproportionate against Great Britain and our partners. It challenged not only Great Britain, but the norms of the world trade organization as we have known them for over 70 years. Our allies abroad were in agreement this could not stand, but at home we found an opposition mired in tabloid headlines as their official talking points. I have been known to make brutally fiery statements against the enemies of the Conservative Party, and of Great Britain. There is no like among myself and members of the opposition. However, there should always remain an understanding of countrymen to do what is right by Great Britain. That understanding collapsed. We cannot go on with a disjointed Parliament and foreign policy to the threats we face. I urge the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition to reconcile from this, and to meet within Her Majesty’s privy council to align the strength of Great Britain against our enemies once again, regardless of political party. I thank our allies, civil service, and the senior members of the Government for their ongoing service amid confusing and hard times, but I must resign so long as we cannot carry on against the threats against us all, with a sense of calm and rationality, at the most senior levels of Parliament.
  6. Mr. Speaker, Today I have finished our negotiations with the Chinese government and I am proud to announce the divestment of China from our nuclear plans in Hinckley C with redoubling in investment from the Government in our exporters. I am proud to announce that amidst trade negotiations we are announcing a Billion Pound tax exemption to British exporters to close in on lessening our trade deficits. Workers were placed under a lot of fear from some in the opposition in a moment of international brinksmanship. Rather than reassure workers and stand together on the side of the United Kingdom some in the opposition took it as a moment to instill fear and attempt to gain political advantage at a time workers faced a foreign threat. This government not only responded to the threat and did away with it by having all threatened tariffs removed, but we found a way to expand and grow our trade and competition abroad. I want to extend my gratitude to our partners abroad for assisting in the diplomatic effort with China. The responses we saw during recent tensions demonstrate the dangers of international misunderstandings. I would like to take a moment to give my thanks to those in Parliament who supported Britain foremost during recent tensions with the Chinese government, regardless of their party. I want to also thank our friends at home and take note of those who tried to exploit the moment to attack the government and make Britain out to look weak on twitter. It is no secret I am a fan of twitter to engage the public and the opposition in an open and transparent way. I will be direct, passionate, and trade barbs in debates that are at the core of our future while engaging the opposition at home. Ultimately, they are also Britons, and despite terrible ideas from the opposition this Government wants the success of all Britons. However, Members of Parliament attacking and blaming Britain for the disproportionate actions of a foreign power during a crisis was also noted, and it was disheartening to say the least. When the going got serious some in the opposition did too, including the Shadow Chancellor, who expressed his dismay to the government on British workers potentially losing their livelihoods as he should. The Shadow Chancellor left it at that when asked to cease instilling fear in the public before we could respond. However, many in the opposition instead jumped to announce they immediately expect money be sent from the helicopters again rather than taking a sensible diplomatic approach to preventing job losses or tariff increases at all. Now the government has prevented job losses entirely while maintaining our steadfast decisions to protect the privacy of British citizens. So, credit to my counterpart, and shame to those that decided to attack the Prime Minister and Britain as weak in a show of disunity for the CCP to enjoy in the middle of tensions. You know who you are.

  8. Mr. Speaker, I am proud to introduce this act to the house which in the first part creates the strongest sanctions proposed by a global economic power against the organized crime machine that composes the current Russian regime. The actions of the Russian regime in Ukraine amount to violations of international law that will not be tolerated by this Government. We are establishing a national effort to deter the aggression of the Russian war machine and cut off the fiscal fuel that feeds the same. While we stand with the Russian people, it is my hope they will also stand against the criminal Mafia running their government, and it is also my hope we see this invasion of a sovereign European country utterly and completely defeated as a lesson to dictators for the rest of history. In the following parts of this act we give relief and mercy to our friends in Ukraine and our Ukrainian friends coming to the United Kingdom. The situation of migration is hard as times are hard all throughout Europe. This government believes it is in challenging times like this we must rise to the oblige we have as global leaders, leaders of Europe, and to the very fabric of Europe by being merciful to our Ukrainian friends. Our Ukrainian friends stand on the front lines for the same global order and peace on Europe we are obliged to preserve as leaders of the same. Altogether this act, prepared at the urging of the Right Honourable Lady the Home Secretary, provides a framework for utterly defeating our enemies and vehemently supporting our friends.
  9. Mr. Speaker, I would like to move for the following act to be moved to second reading in support of our friends in Ukraine. Ukraine Act 2022 Part One: Sanctions against Russia This Act: 1. Suspends the convertibility of Rubles into Pounds and vice versa; 2. Prohibits investment by UK firms and individuals in Russian firms; 3. Prohibits the payment of debt by Russian firms and the Russian state in currency under British jurisdiction; 4. Freezes all Russian state and business assets in the UK 5. Effectively imposes capital controls in respect of any money transferring to the Russian Federation 6. Suspends all visa applications by Russian individuals 7. Closes British airspace to Russian-registered aircraft Part Two: Aid for Ukraine This Act: 1. Applies an exemption to the Foreign Enlistment Act 1870 in respect of those joining the International Legion of Territorial Defence of Ukraine 2. Authorises the transfer of £1 billion in direct financial aid to Ukraine, and commits to a further £2 billion in “reconstruction aid” following the cessation of hostilities 3. Places a responsibility upon the Ministry of Defence to offer non-nuclear equipment being decommissioned (except for reasons of malfunction) to the defence forces of Ukraine at the discretion of the Minister of Defense 4. Establishes the British Ukrainian Refugee Expansion of Rights Part Three: The British Ukrainian Refugee Expansion of Rights This Act: 1. Suspends certain parts of asylum law to give Ukrainian refugees enhanced rights, particularly the right to work 2. Establishes a right to apply for indefinite leave to remain for Ukrainian refugees after two years (or at the cessation of hostilities)
  10. Mr. Speaker, I would like to begin addressing the members of the house following this once in a century geopolitical and fiscal crisis Britain faces amid a global economic environment last seen in the 1970’s. These dual crisis comes at a time 50% of people in our society have seen a dwindling share of wealth holding only 9% of wealth in the economy while the richest 10% have seen a growing share of wealth to hold 44% of all wealth. This disparity grows substantially to the point 0.1% of people hold 13% of the wealth in the country; 130 times the wealth to their size of the population. This points to fundamental structural issues in our economy felt every day by citizens who are increasingly frustrated, and hostile against a globalist economic system that has made the poor poorer and the rich richer across the last 50 years. In the 1970’s we found ourselves in a situation as perilous as we find ourselves in now, high deficits and inflation, unstable geopolitical crisis, terrorism and violence rising, and no enemy more uncertain than the future. We can trace the roots of the economic circumstances we find ourselves in to the same decade where international reforms to trade and monetary systems led to the outcomes we have today. In voting for Brexit our citizens sent a message, yielding our sovereignty to a globalist consensus in Brussels was not working for them, and neither is ignoring the fundamental problems we face in our future. That message was not sent by mistake. It was not always this way. In the 100 years preceding the 1970’s wealth inequality in Great Britain decreased steadily and substantially. We faced recessions and depressions, but the overarching trend was positive for the average citizen and the generations that preceded us rose to monumental challenges across great wars. The solutions are not so far in our past we cannot confidently face our future. In the Right Way Forward we acknowledge these problems and tell you this is a government that will implement structural changes that may be unpopular, but necessary to resolve these crisis. We will initiate a regimen of fiscal responsibility and transformation that will be uncomfortable for some and good for all. These solutions will not be artificial redistributions of wealth and nationalisation so that wealth ends up even further concentrated as it has in Russia, Venezuela, and North Korea. We will be brave enough to steady the force of government with market-based solutions that fundamentally solve these problems for the next century and not just the next term of Parliament. The Agenda begins with education. We will redouble our innovation by supporting education with additional funding and identifying gaps between education and good paying jobs. This will be the single most important cornerstone to securing our future making our workers the most innovative, productive, and desirable in the world for high level tasks that insulate us against the forces of automation and globally cheap Labour. We continue with the need to do the brave thing and tax capital rather than labour. At this moment too many global entities from major conglomerates to individuals are hoarding capital in unproductive ways. We live in a capitalist system and the promise is if you create productive outcomes you deserve to benefit with capital to continue making productive outcomes. That promise must remain unbroken. If you fail to continue making productive outcomes with your capital your benefit of that capital will dwindle. This will spur economic reinvestment to increase wages and hiring in our highly capable workforce while also dampening inflationary pressures. As for those inflationary pressures we will address the lacking supply of goods in supply chains following the pandemic by rebuilding more resilient supply chains less dependent on unstable regimes and dictators. We will address our energy crisis by recognizing the realities of climate change, and doubling our investments in renewables, but also recognizing the realities of the immediate future to ease the way for energy production across all of Britain’s resources. We will reach net zero, lower your cost of energy, and reach energy independence alike. We will continue to address the cost of living crisis by improving domestic production on farms and finalizing our trade deals with major food and beverage exporters such as the United States and Brazil. The lack of supply of food and beverages has been directly correlated to the inflationary issues we face and this means British farmers are as important as ever. Embracing automation and public campaigns to spur investment in British agriculture can address this pressure. Simultaneously, completing our trade deals will immediately provide relief across all sectors of consumer goods. Finally, we will coordinate with the Bank of England to plan fiscal policies around monetary policy. Interest rates set by the Bank of England will play a crucial role to bringing some restraint to discretionary spending and risky investments. While the fiscal policy set by our government can guide investment to safer havens such as the same energy and agricultural sectors we will need reinvestment in. To reign in our fiscal belt we will be expanding reforms across social services to provide more options, and let those options that do not fare well dwindle away. This includes expanding caretaking of the elderly. We will be implementing cutting edge commercial technology to save costs and improve services. I will dive deeply into our national audit figures to identify waste, and save by improving efficiencies. We will embrace having jobseekers earn their allowance and improve training programmes. We will begin from zero based budgeting, review spending needs across government offices, and ensure everyone is doing their fair fighting against inflation. This is a holistic approach to embracing Brexit and solving our challenges ahead. In our agenda the future is neither our enemy or uncertain. The future is a bright path filled with abundance and opportunity. Britain, we have heard you, and we look forward to being challenged in our outlook. Our best days are yet to come, and I finish with the quote this government has looked to at the beginning of our term: “"Have no fear of the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that He is with you, therefor no harm can befall you. All is very, very well. Do this in complete confidence and faith.”
  11. Name: Michael Marshall Avatar: Gordon Brown Age: 56; June 8th, 1965 Sex: Male Ethnicity: English Marital Status: Married Sexual Orientation: Straight Party: Conservative Political Outlook: A Free Marketeer, Loyalist who supported Brexit as the winds of politics demanded it and viewed Brexit as an opportunity to reduce regulation and increase bi-lateral and multi-lateral trade agreements. Primarily interested in advancing British competitiveness in global economic and political competition. A realist in nature. Constituency: Romford Year Elected: 2010 Education: PPE, Oxford 1983-1987; Wharton MBA 1987-1989 Career: Conservative Party Activist 1983-1985 Researcher - National Institute of Economic and Social Research 1989-1990 International Investments Senior Vice President - Lloyd’s Banking Group 1990-2003 Director of International Strategy - BAE Systems 2003-2009 Political Career: Elected in 2010 to be the MP for Romford; co-vice chair of the Leave Campaign (2016); Economic Secretary to the Treasury 2010-2016; Bio: Following his PPE Marshall went on to continue his research in macroeconomics and finance to compose a follow-on to his honors thesis on great debt cycles and tying data on international debt cycles to data on maximum output of economic productivity leading to recessions. He was credited with creating a model to assist governments and businesses in reliably predicting global downturns within 2-3 years following his model in 1988 successfully modeling a downturn by 1990 due to restrictive monetary policy amid inflationary concerns. Marshall was hired by Lloyd Banking Group as a senior investment analyst and served for 13 years coordinating global risk management and investments. At the onset of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan Marshall was offered a position to lead international strategy for BAE systems. Marshall served BAE for 6 years by identifying defence contract opportunities, improving investments in emerging technology, and growing a global list of defence industry clients in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In 2009 Marshall resigned from BAE Systems to run for Parliament following outcomes of the Iraq War inquiry citing mismanagement by the government in providing oversight to Defence contractors abroad and protesting the awards of defence contracts to unqualified businesses connected to the Labour Party. Marshall has continued to be driven to provide regulatory easing to international British firms, and create reforms to make civil service and government decisions transparent. He senses the rising nationalism and polarization in politics amid the working class due to wealth inequality, economic uncertainty, and the government sinking the country deeper into a potential debt crisis during the pandemic. However, he has and usually will maintain his political expediency, supporting the government, and views Labour as an unacceptable alternative to the country after viewing them as corrupt in his time as a leader in defence contracting. Marshall resigned as Economic Secretary of the Treasury upon the departure of George Osborne although being offered a promotion to Financial Secretary of the Treasury sensing a bit of a slight from Theresa May. He believed May’s government had a fundamental misunderstanding of the outcome of Brexit and the shifting political winds of the base in approaching Brexit. He mistakenly privately warned Phillip Hammond that even amid improving economic conditions the larger economic trend of wealth inequality would lead to increasing unrest if the government did not take dramatic steps to address it, and the Government should take the Leave outcome as a warning people are growing angrier at globalism. Hammond passed along details of the conversation to May and subsequently received his appointment as Chancellor. Marshall has an affinity for military matters and his favoured sport in his youth was boxing. He is very competitive and views competition in politics or business as an opportunity to win utterly and completely. His corporate experience has made him appear diplomatic and discerning, but he will often attack his opponents with mocking humour and derision. Married to Charlotte Marshall. One son and two daughters. His daughter Helen is heavily involved in his political career as an adviser and Conservative party activist. His Son Mitchell is actively serving in the British Navy following his graduation from Oxford. His daughter Victoria is a Labour Party activist.
