    If nobody votes anymore... we'll have El Pip working on TWO UPDATES!

    The best bit in that game is this PM from OY to his packmates:

    OrangeYoshi: ... I'll also put in a preliminary hunt order to Hunt Oky's replacement. (THE_SPLIT if I'm not mistaken). He publicly asked for a sub, and that is slightly more common in Lite if you have some sort of important role.

    This is OY putting in a hunt order on Oky's replacement, who is none other than OY.

    DonnieBaseball - A truly hardcore naval fan.

    Duritz - The great Australian charge for the line begins.

    Jalex - Scheming noted.

    Davout - A spectacular rallying cry, surely enough to embolden the feeblest of lurking hearts?

    MadVlad - Huzzah for armour.

    Nathan Madien - Tanks may yet do this.

    RAFspeak - Your airframe porn commitment is a marvel to behold.

    Ciryandor - And the totals say;

    Tanks and Trucks - XVIII Votes
    Schisms and Scheming - XXI Votes
    Battle-cruisers and Dive Bombers - XXI Votes

    Well that's a bugger and no mistake. Hopefully someone will vote before I actually start writing, if not I may have to cast a deciding vote myself.

    Schism.
    I am therefore officially rooting for a Franco-German strike on Russia, prompting the Soviets to strike back with their hitherto secret nukes. This will serve as a salutary lesson to all involved and leave everyone suitably chastened.-El Pip

    Tanks and trucks and men who f...ight.

    Sorry, couldn't think of anything to rhyme with truck. I'll leave the poetry to Davout from now on... promise.

    Dury.
    The price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings - Duritz

    We have a great objective - the light on the hill - which we aim to reach by working for the betterment of mankind not only here but anywhere we may give a helping hand. If it were not for that, the Labour movement would not be worth fighting for. - Ben Chifley

    I am not a Labor Leader; I do not want you to follow me or anyone else; if you are looking for a Moses to lead you out of this capitalist wilderness, you will stay right where you are. I would not lead you into the promised land if I could, because if I led you in, some one else would lead you out. You must use your heads as well as your hands, and get yourself out of your present condition. - Eugene Debs

    How about we scheme about where exactly we should ship all the tanks. That, I think, is the best compromise available.

    More Scheming!

    I'm stuck like a pig by now.

    Sobbing...

    ...I wave a tear-stained farewell to the RN lorries, as they carry the crates of new Fleet Air Arm machines away.

    The lights are going out all over the Airfield - we won't see them lit again in our lunchtime...

    A defiant +1 for big floating metal targets, and the devices needed to sink them!

    A have one question, one proposal and one vove.

    1) Is oil discovered in Libya? Foreign companies (including british probably) suspected there was oil there (region was always rich in some minerals, dont remember which, that were usually found where oil is), and offers were made to Italians to buy concessions or even to sell them technology to extract it themself. They refused because of their propaganda, previously they claimed they have the finest technology in the world so buying foreign equpment would crush that myth.

    It is funny how much emphasis they were putting on propaganda. during the war they even published a book about Italian armoured forces which claimed they were the best in the world and distributed it to occupied Europe. Perception of strenght was always more important to Mussolini then real strenght.

    2) You can model demilitarised Rhineland by altering the save game. Just open it by notepad, search for tag = GER, and scroll down until you find some garrison values. There are countries with priority focus, and there infront of FRA = "some number", change that number into -1, and they will not garrison Franch border at all. It would probably be wise to raise the prority for reserve (above those values), so that they dont garrison other borders to heavily and leave their forces to far from France.

    3) One vote for a FAA capable of crushing the Kido Butai with ease, and some cool new BC for those pesky surface raiders.

    The Tanker's Lament

    Once a jolly Dury camped by the motor pool
    Clothed in the dogma of the Labour Party
    And he sang as he watched the armour with 2 pounders
    Who'll come a voting Mathildas with me

    (Chorus)Vote for Mathildas, Vote for Mathildas
    Who'll come a voting Mathildas with me
    And he sang as he watched that armour with 2 pounders
    Who'll come a voting Mathildas with me

    Down came a Skua to steal away the vote again
    Up jumped Dury to say no sirree.
    And he sang as he dropped that DB with his Bofors gun
    Who'll come a voting Mathildas with me

    (Chorus)

    Up came a Schismist, mounted on Lord Halifax
    Down came the Schemers, 1, 2, 3!!!
    We'll stuff the ballot box, you haven't got a chance.
    who'll come a voting Mathildas except thee

    (Chorus)

    Up jumped Dury and leapt into his Bren Gun Carrier
    You'll never win, Kevin Rudd has promised me victory
    But his sobs may be heard as you pass down the motor pool
    For no-one came a voting Mathildas but Dury.

    (One more time - Chorus)




    For what it is worth, +1 tanks. We will go down fighting.

    Voting Ends

    trekaddict - That may or may not make things easier.

    Bafflegab - You are fortunate the polls re-opened due to the dead heat.

    Derek Pullem - But is it a cunning plan?

    Carlstadt Boy - Alas such attempted cheating incurs a -22 penalty, leaving you at only a net +1.

    Faeelin - Noted.

    GeneralHannibal - The momentum seems unstoppable.

    Jalex - As I said, unstoppable.

    Duritz - Davout is this threads poet in residence clearly.

    DonnieBaseball - A naval rally?

    MadVlad - Such an update could last for tens of thousands of words!

    C&D - You appear to have backed the winner.

    RAFspeak - Look on the brightside, it appears boats and bombers is a nailed on second place at least.

    Carlstadt Boy - Oil was found OTL in 1938 by an Italian expedition. This time round it will be found by the surveyors mapping the new Tripoli-Cairo railway, to the slight annoyance of the British oil firms who have more than enough on their plate with the fields elsewhere. However London won't tolerate letting non-Empire firms exploit oil in a British puppet so they'll just have to expand.

    Sounds like a good idea on the Rhineland I'll give that a go (after backing up the save game!)

    Davout - Words cannot express how wondrous that song is and how saddened I am that it is a lament of defeat. If elections were won by song tanks would be the runaway victor in my book.

    FINAL TALLY

    Tanks and Trucks - XX Votes
    Schisms and Scheming - XXVII Votes
    Battle-cruisers and Dive Bombers - XXVI Votes

    So by the narrowest of margins scheming wins, now I just have to write it....
