The Sword of Damocles (Regency) Act
« on: October 18, 2020, 06:29:04 PM »
IN ACCORDANCE WITH the recent Government statement on the Regency;

AND IN THE UNDERSTANDING THAT the issue here is the King's signal disrespect to the Ziu in making this appointment without warning or consultation, rather than any fault in the Regent;

AND IN THE UNDERSTANDING THAT this bill is being Hoppered so that it may be Clarked and and when necessary, that being in the case of irretrievable breakdown between the Regent and the Government/Ziu majority;

AND IN THE UNDERSTANDING THAT the details of any such breakdown will be included in this Preamble before any Clarking;


BE IT ENACTED by the Ziu of Talossa that, in accordance with Organic Law II.5, Sir Alexandreu Davinescù is removed from the position of Regent of the Kingdom of Talossa.

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

"It probably would be a bit helpful if you resigned and became inactive..." - Sir A. Davinescù

I believe I am duty-bound to object to this, since His Majesty clearly indicated his wishes were that I serve him as regent for now and since the Ziu has often expressed a desire to know as early as possible when the crown objects to a proposed bill.  I am not threatening to veto the bill at this time, since it seems to be a hypothetical bill to address a hypothetical future problem, but duty obliges me to say that I disagree with the proposal.

Oh, quick side note: my last name doesn't have an accent mark.  It never has.
