A Prime Speech
The Prime Minister looked down at his Palm cards, visually going over his notes prepared for his speech. Around him various orderlies and ministers went about their preparations. A small group of his assistants fiddled with the final touches on his suit, one even fixing up his tie. As he looked at the clock before him counting down before him, signalling that in two minutes he would be live to the entire nation, the Prime Minister pondered over his accomplishments: military reform, expansion, a position of power, nuclear warheads, a vastly improved economy, the isolation of mages with Notosia. Nobody could doubt that he had achieved much, yet hopefully this would be his last great achievement, one that would live the name Shaun Brandis in history for eternity as the father of a Notosian Superpower.
“We’re on in 5…”
The sharp countdown from the television crew leader snapped the Prime Minister back to attention as the light above the large camera pointed at him switched from offline to ON AIR in big red letters, He paused, inhaled looked towards the autocue and began his speech.
“As many citizens of our great state are no doubt aware, today I in accordance with the chief of staffs and many of my ministers, have felt the need to launch not only a nuclear strike against the people of the Sphere but also follow up with an Air, land and sea invasion by our own Armed Forces.
Our initial reports state that the main objective of the Strike was met, the successful destruction of the enemy’s naval infrastructure and potentially several of their naval ships. In addition I am proud to announce that 4million of the filthy subhumans of the Sphere have been killed in the strikes.
Even as we speak our Army, Navy and Airforce move to eliminate and destroy the hostile forces of the sphere, and it is my belief that they will do everything in their power to not only end this war, quickly and violently, but successfully secure the defense of the Notosian People: the true human and our way of life.”
the PM paused, checking over the autocue.
“For those of your within our Commonwealth questioning the need for such actions, I will run through a few facts for you:
Fact: The Commonwealth of Notosia only developed Nuclear weapons with the intention of self-defence
Fact: The Sphere signed an arms deal which encouraged the free movement and use of multiple different classes of WMD’s including Biological and Nuclear weapons, while securing themselves safety from retaliation
Fact: The Sphere supports the abomination that is magic
Fact: Our friends in the scientifically enlightened technocracy, faced mass espionage and sabotage from the Sphere
Fact: The sphere is working in league with other non-notosian peoples to bring down the rightful Notosian way of life and culture.
again he paused this time giving a long look towards the camera, as if questioning every Notosian that sat behind it watching the speech.
“As I, Shaun Brandis, your Prime Minister and most importantly a proud citizen of this great nation have shown you through these facts. The Sphere is an aggressive power that seeks to not only further its own goals and form itself into a regional power. It associated with the worst types of dregs in society, Heathman, Non-Notosians and Mages. Furthermore the Sphere through its aggressive actions seek to eliminate our culture and our history from the face of this planet until our ashes are scattered to the wind. In this situation can one not say it is the duty of every Notosian citizen to fight for their country and work to destroy the Sphere, but that any who does not is a traitor to the country. The Sphere are a cancerous tumor that must be destroyed before it can spread into our nation and corrupt, tear and destroy our very spirit. In this case despite our necessary first strike, it is we the people of Notosia who are just, and we the people of Notosia who through our violence work to secure peace for those who came after us.
the PM looked down fidgeted with his thumbs as he thought whether or not to go through with the last segment of his speech. Soon he looked up again continuing on without any sign of disturbance.
“If this still does not appeal to you, remember then the words of the King of Aurora when he first stood upon the shores of Notosia and spoke unto the then governor of Cookland. “Here I call this land, the realm of Notosia and name it heir in all to that which the Empire of Aurora commands. I name all the people of our descent who will settle and be born here, Notosians and promise unto them the world, as nothing less deserving of the equal of Aurora. For them all shall be theirs, all fields reaped in their name, all creations be marked by their artisans and all foes be trampled by their boots” Remember us the Governor tells us of the encounter, “The King swept his arms far and wide to signify all the land that could be seen and all that went beyond, his arms would reach as far south as the great ocean rift and the start of the second continent and as far across east as the Northern Isles even touching the shores beyond. I turned to him and replied, Notosia exists to serve your will, now and forever and will strive so that all you have just claimed on our behalf, can be hoisted if not under the flag of Aurora, but that of Cookland or a combined Notosian Nation”
Her history tells us that all the land occupied by the sea is part of Notosia, and that as Notosians we have promised that we will always fight until we occupy all that the Auroran Kings asked for, to do more is too seek to overthrow their authority, to do less is to hold them in contempt. I ask you here, do you intend to give your all to this war, so that we may reclaim our land upon which they squat on? Do you intend to be a true Notosian? I know that I do, and that is why I am announcing that I will be stepping aside after the conclusion of this war as the Prime Minister, fear not as this allows me to take my main role of guiding this Commonwealth to victory in this war we face, despite any difficulties we may face, for the duration of the war most domestic and minor concerns will be overseen by Arthur Fitzroy, who will after my retirement become the head of the Conservative party and therefore Prime Minister until the next elections. Notosia demands we give her our best, I have decided to give mine, I only ask you do the same.”
With that the Prime Minister turned and left as the camera’s turned off. He grimaced as his colleagues ran up to congratulate him, and dote upon him, explaining to him how much of a visionary he was. Personally he couldn't care less for their petty politics at the time, he had bigger fish to fry. “Arthur” he yelled to the Foreign Minister who was waiting for him a few metres away, “Get me the chiefs of staff, we have a bloody war to win”
