Imperial Marriage Postponed

Imperial Marriage Postponed
In a follow up to yesterday’s announcement, the marriage of Emperor Hengist to his childhood sweetheart, Florence Lavigny, has now been postponed indefinitely. The news marks the first time in over five hundred years that an Imperial wedding has had to have been delayed for any reason.
As well as costing the Imperial Treasury a small fortune, the delay comes as a serious blow to Arissa Lavingly’s claim to the throne. Experienced commentators have noted that whilst Arissa currently enjoys the support of Chancellor Blaine, a well respected and staunch supporter of traditional Imperial values, he has previously stated that the next Emperor should follow the Duval line.

Rumours of Imperial Wedding Delay Confirmed

Rumours of Imperial Wedding Delay Confirmed
After days of widely circulating rumours that ships belonging to major dignitaries had not yet departed for tomorrow’s wedding, the palace this morning confirmed that there will be a delay to the start of festivities. Chancellor Anders Blaine made an announcement on the steps of the Imperial Palace saying -
“It is with deep regret I have to announce that his Grace, the Emperor Hengist Duval, remains too unwell to participate in the wedding ceremony tomorrow. As such, it is with great sadness that I must declare a temporary postponement of the intended revelries. Hopefully this will be a delay of just a few days. I will make announcements each day once we know more.”
The Chancellor refused to take questions, and returned inside the palace moments after his announcement.
Although there is anger amongst some lesser dignitaries that they weren’t told in advance, the markets did not notably change in reaction to this news, suggesting that the true state of the Emperor’s health has come as no surprise to those in power.

Embattled Federal President Asks Us to ‘Hold Firm’

Embattled Federal President Asks Us to ‘Hold Firm’
In a Presidential address last night, President Jasmina Halsey gave a length speech outlining the various successes she claims her government has made over the course of their current term. However, when pressed to answer questions regarding the recent wave of systems scrambling to leave the Federal fold, President Halsey simply said -
“We are facing troubled times. While it is easy for some to declare that the military are the solution, we must look further ahead. Our society fails those who need our help the most and it is by lifting those at the bottom that we will restore Federal society to what it should be.”
Political pundits were quick to point out that her speech contained very little substance, with many complaining that the President had failed to address any of the actual threats that face the Federation today. Some have even gone so far as to suggest that her mishandling of the current socioeconomic climate has left the Federation weaker than it has ever been before, pointing to the recent slide of Banki and BD+03 2338 into states of lawless anarchy as prime examples of the President’s continued failures.

Aisling Duval Reaffirms her Objection to Emperor’s Marriage

Aisling Duval Reaffirms her Objection to Emperor’s Marriage
Aisling Duval, once thought to be second in line to the throne, has objected to the finding of the Marriage Council that her objection had no merit. She has said on a leaked private chat -
“The rotten marriage council is made up of my grandfather’s cronies. How can they block my objection now it is clear he is in a coma? Marriage is about love!”
The ruling of the Marriage Council was apparently made before the announcement of the coma, and under Imperial rules, an objection cannot be lodged more than once by the same person.

Dulos System Sees Massive Swing for Independence

Dulos System Sees Massive Swing for Independence
Commentators from the Dulos system are reporting a massive swing in the popularity of the Dulos Defence Party who recently announced that they would seek to withdraw the system from the Federation. A spokesman for the party said -
“Following on from our success with the economy for the markets under our control this additional boost just reinforces that our vision for the future of our system is the correct one.”
An official statement from President  Halsey’s office has not been forthcoming and this news can only increase the political turmoil her presidency has become embroiled in.

Federal President Declares Plant an Illegal Narcotic

Federal President Declares Plant an Illegal Narcotic The Federal President Jasmina Halsey, has declared the newly discovered rare narcotic ‘Onionhead’ illegal throughout Federal space. Onionhead is the fruit of an alien plant, only grown on Panem in the independent Kappa Fornacis system. Halsey has said she is concerned by the effect it is having on Federal youth in that part of the Galaxy. "We must be strong and protect our youth from vile substances that are rotting their minds. This is why I have taken this difficult step."

Slave Rebellion in Sorbago

Slave Rebellion in Sorbago Rumours of the slave rebellion in the Sorbago system have been confirmed. In a speech to business leaders, pro-slavery Senator Zemina Torval denied sending two of her personal Majestic Class Interdictors, the Boudica and the Elizabeth, to put down the revolt, but said "They have gone to Sorbago to help the local mining corporation keep the peace and to keep out the external forces that are trying to create a conflict". Reports suggested the slaves are not being treated according to Imperial Law. Torval has announced generous payments to those that help her, and has criticised the barbaric treatment of unregulated slaves outside the Empire in the past. "I will personally sponsor any unregulated slaves brought to Synteini, Shinigami, Quile, LTT 9810, Tau-2 Gruis A, Naunei, and Tepertsi to be given full Imperial Rights and treated as Imperial Slaves."

Patreus Helping Oppressed Rebels in Jera

Patreus Helping Oppressed Rebels in Jera In a move that is sure to worry some independent governments, Senator Denton Patreus has announced his forces have been sent to aid the long-suffering rebels in the Jera system. He answered questions on the steps of the Imperial Opera House on Conversion in the Achenar system. "The left-leaning government in Jera has long been oppressing hard-working minorities. This is the fundamental problem with democracy - the bullying of the aspirational minority by the indolent majority. That bullying has to stop."

Farmer’s Leader Accuses President of Victimisation

Farmer’s Leader Accuses President of Victimisation Georgio Algeria, the spokesman for the Farmer’s Union in the Kappa Fornacis system has spoken out at the Federal President’s declaration that Onionhead, the main export from the Kappa Fornacis system, be illegal. At a press conference on Panem he said “Onionhead is great, cool. Loved across the galaxy. We make it, you eat it. Don’t eat it if you don’t want it. Call yourself President! We will keep making it and you will keep eating it. It’s what we do. It’s all we do.” Algeria would not be drawn on it in public, but it is clear the President's controversial actions have spread publicity for Onionhead far and wide and demand is higher than ever on the black market.

Celebrity Daughter of Heir Declares Slavery Dishonourable

Celebrity Daughter of Heir Declares Slavery Dishonourable Aisling Duval, arguably second in line for the throne if her parents were married, spoke out against slavery on the chat show "Celebrity Pets", particularly the rebellion in Sorbago. “We should accept that in this 34th century, this is a barbaric practice for people of honour. We should free the slaves in Sorbago. And for that matter Ngun, Eta Horologii, Kuyu, and Cemiess right away. This will happen anyway when my father becomes Emperor." There has been some discussion among commentators that Aisling now appears to be speaking for her father. Senator Torval said in an off-the-cuff remark while leaving an awards ceremony "Well I suppose her soak of a father can't speak for himself any more. At least she could read the names of a few systems she had been given on a note. It would have been better if she could have been told how to pronounce them!"

Patreus Declares Zero Taxation

Patreus Declares Zero Taxation In a popular move, Senator Denton Patreus has announced the already low tax regime for all Imperial Citizens under his patronage will be lowered to zero. Before boarding his private yacht he said to reporters present - "It is the duty of the successful to provide well for their loyal supporters. Our many successes abroad have brought us vast wealth. I take pride that those under my patronage get the best medical care, the best assistance if they fall on hard times, and because of their support in the past, the lowest taxes." Patreus is said to earn vast sums in interest payments on the many loans he has made to foreign governments to buy Imperial weaponry, which he also supplies.

Admiral Vincent Declares a Blockade of Kappa Fornacis

Admiral Vincent Declares a Blockade of Kappa Fornacis Federal Admiral Vincent has declared a blockade of the Kappa Fornacis system to prevent the spread of the narcotic onionhead. Speaking after a meeting at the Admiralty in Quenisset on Mars he answered questions from waiting journalists. “The local government is failing to prevent the spread of this vile narcotic through the galaxy, so we must do so on behalf of the Federation. Any ship carrying this narcotic will be destroyed by our forces”. The Farmer’s leader, Georgio Algeria has put out a plea for help - “Please help us. This is our livelihood. If the Federation doesn’t like it then it MUST be cool. And you’ll be cool if you help us. Come and back us against the oppressors.”

Heir to the Throne Officially Mad

Heir to the Throne Officially Mad The sick Emperor Hengist Duval has managed to appear in the Senate, albeit in a travel chair, to issue a decree. He decreed Harold, his son, not of sound mind. This gives some credence to the claim in the more scurrilous news feeds a year ago that Hengist once referred to his son in not very regal terms in private. “The little idiot is utterly bonkers. He couldn’t find his own bottom with both hands”. This was of course, denied. This decree, as commentators have been quick to point out, means there is no clear successor to the throne. Unusually the event was excluded from newscasts, but those present said he looked frail.

Slave Rebellion Gains Traction

Slave Rebellion Gains Traction Reports are coming in that the slaves in Sorbago have taken control of many of the mines on Sorbago A1 and have massacred those in control. We have no reporters on the scene so cannot verify these stories. A spokesoman for Mastopolos Mining Incorporated, running the mines and issued the following statement “Our security forces have intercepted ships from outside the system bringing guns to the rebels. This is destabilising our workforce, and has got to stop.” Senator Torval, a major shareholder in Mastopolos, and has sent some of her private warships to the system. She has also further increased aid for those assisting her in fighting off “these external rabble-rousers”. In the meantime, the price of ore has risen in the area.
