Etho, name another time a citizen has been blocked from immigration. Bonus points if it was by members of our old party.

I can't.

As usual AD is using loaded language; since the Kingdom's immigration laws were massively liberalised during the National Schism, no-one's citizenship request has been rejected (assuming they followed the requirements of the law), and in only one case were the provisions of Lex. E8 invoked.

Correct on e.8, as far as recent history goes. :). But on several occasions, the immigration process has halted for one reason or another, such as determining that the applicant was not a real person. I'm not sure how many times that's happened, but I'd wager in recent times it's been about 20 or so.

Rosie Kane?

That's probably the one, name sounds familiar. The SSP had so much promise before Sheridan sacrificed it on the altar of his ego. Still, I don't approve of their SWERFy politics.

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Talossa. Ask me anything.

Sorry. I deleted my Rosie Kane post after the SoS's warning.  Yeah, the SSP in the early to mid 00's could have went on to be a real game changer for Scotland.  A strong SSP could have ended up filling the void that the collapse of Scottish Labour have created.  I wonder what things would be like today had the SSP, SNP and Greens, together, became the dominant forces in Scottish politics.

It wouldn't be that hard to have a revolution in Talossa, and would mostly revolve around internet security issues.  Seize the domain name and associated properties and you'd basically be done.  Someone tried to do that once before (2009 or 2010, I think) and got caught because he was bad at it, but we've mostly gotten lucky.

Been there.  Done that.  ;-)

There's a ton of precedent for anarchists and far left citizens in our country. I am one of them.
