The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
((Private-NPL))I wish to announce that I support the Marquis of Okayama's continued candidacy for the Leadership of the National Liberal Party, and formally endorse his leadership bid.
Furthermore, I wish to make a public plea to the members of the so-called Kamikaze Party. As I had privately warned your leadership in the early days following the Revolution, the reactionaries are now beginning to organise a united front against the Emperor and his Liberal Empire. Japan is now moving towards a two-party system, and as KP leader Lord Nishimura has long since abandoned Federalism - the only distinction in policy between your party and the NLP - there is no reason whatever for the KP to continue to exist as a separate party, apart from it siphoning off votes from the NLP and letting the reactionaries in through the back door.
I implore you, for the sake of the Emperor and his revolution, to unite with us and join the NLP in order to combat the rising reactionary menace, and secure the gains of the revolution.
--Hosokawa-dono, Foreign Secretary.
While I do agree with you that we need to work together with the Kamikaze Party, I must object to your approch. The Kamikaze Party was formed for a reson, and while you do not see it (and neither do I) it is clear that it is important to them, I would recommended a strategy of negotionation, to make sure that we simply do not push them to the reactionaries's arms.
