By-Election and Changes in Government

After serving just short of one month in office, a by-election for Prime Minister was called following Josephine Talleyrand’s resignation due to real life factors. The poll for Prime Minister opened 26th Feb 2021. Three people ran for the position, Henry E. S. Stewart of Sein Fein, Aaron Raynolds-Bauheim of The Independent Group and Mayim Emanu-El—Bauheim of Labour. 41 votes were cast in the poll, the highest turnout of recent months.

Henry E. S. Stewart received 22 votes (53.66%), Aaron Raynolds-Bauheim received 6 votes (14.63 %) and Mayim Emanu-El—Bauheim received 13 votes (31.71%). Henry Stewart was thus declared the winner, avoiding a run-off with 9 votes separating him from second place Mayim.

[Original reporting by TL;DR Belfast] After the election, Mr Stewart emerged from the doors of 10 Downing Street and announced the Cabinet. Scott Cahill-Mountbatten MP from Kensington (Sinn Fein) was appointed Deputy Prime Minister while outgoing DPM Angus Baker-Mountbatten MP from Sevenoaks (PUP) was appointed as new Home Secretary. Long time statesman Akillian Talleyrand MP from Linlithgow (PUP) remained in his post as Foreign Secretary. We will be seeing a new Local Government Secretary with Mayim, Baronex Bauheim (Labour) taking the post while Cahill-Mountbatten will  be taking Stewart's old post as Chancellor of the Exchequer. Meanwhile, previous Culture Secretary John Alexander (Sinn Fein) replaced Longdendale as Culture Secretary. This cabinet is currently composed of well-known and committed statesmen to carry out Stewart's agenda for the Kingdom.
 
Parliamentary Activity

Within Parliament, the first 7 Member House of Commons in several months, has been actively debating several pieces of legislation. Bills have passed relating to the role of Magistrate Judges in the Judiciary, the removal of Regional Societies from the University, and regulations relating to the Chancellor’s ability to request economic records from regional businesses. The most significant piece of legislation to pass through the Parliament this term has been a new Defence Act, which amongst other changes to the modern day functioning of the military, have required the Chief of General Staff to now serve for a term limited period and subject to the House of Commons confirmation.

Two other pieces of legislation to pass the House of Commons were the Political Parties Regulation Act and the Business Standards Act. Both bills have faced opposition and amendments in the House of Lords. In an effort to avoid opposing the bills completely, the House of Lords have made an attempt to compromise on the legislation, which the House of Commons is considering.

Finally, following the resignation of Henry Stewart as Speaker of the House of Commons, due to his election as Prime Minister, Matthew Stewart was elected as Speaker unopposed.

Valentines Festival and Honours List

Since the last update, the Culture Office has hosted a Valentine's Festival for members of NSUK. Taking place between the 10th and 17th of February, there were a range of activities and games that took place to mark Valentines day and offer members something to do at a time where many people can feel lonely. Some of the activities that took place were themed quizzes, a playlist created by festival participants around the theme of love and a lot of spam games. One of the big events of the festival was an avatar contest between participants. After 6 entries from participants and 2 days of voting, the winner was John Alexander, whose winning avatar can be seen below. In all, the event was a fun time that did a lot to cheer up members at a time where RL hasn’t been great for a lot of people.
