Jocospor Let's analyse the dispatch.
To the Delegates of the World Assembly.
OK. I was a delegate until a week ago and am still pretty interestes in the WA, so this kinda applies to me.
We're NOT writing to you now to encourage you to vote. We're writing to you to tell you truth.
The truth eh? Is this really undeniable truth?
So, where do we start? Well, how about we use the current resolution at vote in the General Assembly, Repeal GAR#408 A Ban on Secret Treaties, as stimulus.
Funnily enough, if you were to remove the votes cast by Delegate Siwale (1,179) and Delegate Erinor (605) then (at the time of this telegram's writing) the FOR vote would be well ahead.
Significantly more individual nations voted Against than For. I could equally make the point that, in your dream scenario, Aleisyr and Davelands would be using their massive influence to prevent the Against vote winning.
Do you think it's fair that two nations command just under 1,800 votes between them? "But they've been endorsed! We trust them!" Well, that's true...except for the fact that nations who've endorsed a delegate can also vote.
Nations have chosen to have a delegate represent them.
It's interesting, when you think about it, that nations who elect to have another nation represent them are still able to represent themselves.
Yes. What's wrong with that? Nations should still have autonomy if their delegate votes against their wishes.
And let's not forget the corruption spread throughout the World Assembly (and trust us, we can smell corruption, hailing from our particular Confederation).
We all know Delegate Imperium Anglorum has authored a plethora of resolutions. The block alliance he has created ensures that his faction's monopoly over the World Assembly will continue unchecked.
Not really, it is still possible to overcome them, but you need support, which you lack. There is nothing wrong with a WA alliance. Nations can choose to use their power together.
Anecdotally, he sent out a telegram to his region instructing all WA nations to vote against our repeal proposal after we supposedly made plans to invade Europe. Which...we didn't. Case in point.
Really? There is no way that you could invade Europe. You have a WA population of 10, IA has hundreds of endorsements! This seems like a misunderstanding. If you did make plans to invade them, don't expect help on WA votes. Maybe IA was just informing his region, like a good delegate, and it was unrelated to these claims. For the first time, I wholehartedly support Imperium Anglorum!
What's more, the General Assembly Secretariats have failed in their duties. You can read more about that particular mishap here. The Imperial Empire is calling for the Secretariats to explain themselves, and for there to be consequences.
I have read the forum thread and frankly, the GenSec did not have enough time to pick up a very fine point, seeing your refusal to draft and the speed at which quorum was reached. Very few of us could match the skill of the GenSec, who behave like real lawyers and therefore also make mistakes: they are humans. They have also apologised and no further "explanation" is needed. Demanding "consequences" is ridiculous.
If our proposal is defeated, we intend to resubmit it, with new evidence having come to light.
All I can say is that you need to draft! There is so much help available on the forums and denying this is just foolish.
We truly believe the World Assembly's days are numbered, if issues within its dimly-lit corridors are not addressed.
It ain't goin' nowhere! Removal of the WA would require changes to the game code, which would need to be done by moderators who have no interest in removing it. I doubt that you would find support for removing the WA.
This telegram will also form the basis of a forum thread entitled "Flaws of the World Assembly", where the discussion can be continued.

Make no mistake: the first part of this is not an attack on Delegate power. It's merely stating something that should, well, be stated.
Towards a new World Assembly.
Hail the Confederation!
