Nuvieles de Furlanìe

Trade agreement reached with @Serenierre
The outgoing Baldas Government has reached an agreement with the Serenêrs, guaranteeing an upcoming increase in fruit exports to the Frankish nation. the stipulated agreement also provides for a significant opening to the amount of wheat and maize imported.

Although the Confenonîr has stressed that the set limits and barriers will guarantee the protection of domestic production from unfair prices, the passage in parliament has been strongly fought.
To recover the negative votes that some more distrustful fringes within the majority announced, the government pressed the adverse political area to reach a consensus, pressures that reached a positive result last night, guaranteeing, with a 135 votes against 93, the confirmation of the commercial agreement.

While the government celebrates what is considered an important diplomatic step towards peace, the Papavar calls it a betrayal of the mandate of parliament, deeming the pros insufficient compared to the cons.
"It is unacceptable" comments Secretary Varamio Cjavalîr "that a puppet government, weak, at the end of its legislative life, is gambling on the economic stability of rural areas hoping to gain some leverage in the next elections"

Commissariat for External Relations
The Republique Populaire welcomes the ratification of the trade agreement and we believe that it shall stand to economically benefit both nations and its peoples. We continue to believe that supporting national industries is just as essential a subject as encouraging international trade and we specifically state that the role of Serenien exports to Furlanie is not designed to weaken Furlanie farmers rather to help allow Furlanie's agricultural sector find more opportunities not only in their own country but also a friendly market in our own.

While the Villesen Government respects Secretary Cjavalîr and shall refrain from commenting on his remarks.

FP "...see, it really is just both, it could.. be an important step in ... positive direction, but a possibility isn't worth gambling on the livelihood of the many hard working citizens of Furlanì... ...specially about the many Cjarniei that live off their livestock, bringing excellent meat and cheese to our tables every day, w... ...n't permit to a single man, even a Confenonîr, to take such decisions without consulting with the farmers, the dairy workers, the butcher... ... ...parliament, not him, such decisions should be taken together as a nation... ...at least try"

Presenter "there is a possibility for thi... to be great, but it is a gamble on a key element of our economy, a danger for... ...citizens, this is what siôr Persei sustains, but what says your party, what do you think siôr Grasiediu?"

VG "I think it is nearly comical how the Papavar party is tryin... ...turn reality on itself, this agreement IS, and is already, a good reality for our economy... ...nd a strategic-"

FP "maybe for your personal economy, for Broilis de Furlanìe and their fruit production, this is a reality only for the wealthy-"

Presenter "I ask yo... ...t to interrupt your colleague please, I cannot accept this behaviour in my program"

Danê Ageste de Villefaure "...respect the decision, which I really think is a good one, and my loyalty to him and the party is absolutely unwavering yet... ...ask myself, in honesty, was it really necessary acting so swiftly?... ...parliament has strong prerogatives, powers that sometimes unlawfully challenge the Crown, which... ...unacceptable, and this time would have been an extraordinary opportunity to delegate some of that power to the local administrations, the mayors, the mountain communities and the lords of Furlanìe"

Fieri Bielirosis "...agree with cortesane de Villefaure on the inflating powers of parliament, decisions like this need... ...discussion in the territories interested, although those communities under a Papavar administration would... ...more powers, but would also need some restructuring, we can no longer permit full power over so many and... ...wide areas of Furlanìe to be centred in one single unelected individual, I-"

Danê Ageste de Villefaure "if you'll excuse me, those individuals, of which category you know I am a proud member, have served the Grand Duchy and... ...Friulian peoples for generations, our whole life is bound to the mission of guaranteeing the stability, security and development of the nation-"

Fieri Bielirosis "then let's, allow me to say, let's unbound you, Furlanìe has been stagnating for years, especially... ...urrent Government, the nation needs change, it desperately does... ...sure you and your peers have the best intentions, and I am sure you don't spare a minute from the hard work you have on your shoulders, but I'm convinced that-"

Danê Ageste de Villefaure "that an horde of inexperienced people, elected from... ...local pool of greedy and self-centred people so narcissist to aim at gaining power, but not enough skilled to hope for a place in parliament, would do a better job?"

Fieri Bielirosis *laughs* "if... ...is your opinion on your own citizen I rest my case-"

Fieri Bielirosis "I certainly am"

Danê Ageste de Villefaure "do you think our Lord would need a counselling chamber?"

Presenter "... an... ...since the end of... ...great war... ...yet, after all these years, there are still heavy consequences on the territory, especially... ...the lower Longhe valley, where, according to an internal report leaked from... ...Palace, there is a disturbing lack of funds in the local post offices, we are talking about understaffed offices, postmen working half a day in a village and the other half in another, delays in the... ...ry of pensions and letters, why hasn't the government intervened before?"

Lodi Sbrissenins "we haven't forgot about those communities, the government had to focus on... ...integration of Tergest back into its natural home, we had an extremely hard job to do, tying together two very different systems after centuries of separation, we had to find and expel communist cells that hid in Tergest after the peace treaty, cells that could have undermined our nation, we have seen that happen, and is just because of our... ... ...nd unity of intent that we managed to bring the nation together and survive. it is absolutely right that... ...communities require us to deliver a perfectly functioning system, but they should not think for a second that this party forgot about them"

Clâr Martirs "w... ...I appreciate the great words of my colleague but, we are talking about hiring some more postmen and giving more funds to the local offices, we're not talking about a war on communism are we? it has become an habit, for the Vuaite Natzionâl, to hide its policy failures behind big inspirational words, but let's look... ...the facts: the cost of our bureaucracy... ...increased over the years, where are those money going? all the while the budget for the Labour Ministry has been restricted year after year, even though it is clear that those funds are key for the less-industrialised areas of the nation, the Vuaite has been actively working to enrich the Duchy of Friûl at the expense of the other areas of the nation... ...look a the Serenêr agreement, favouring Friûl over Cjarnie, plain in sight-"

Presenter "is it- is it true siôr Sbrissenins? is the-"

Lodi Sbrissenins "no"

Presenter "-is the Vuaite a Grau-centric party?"

Lodi Sbrissenins "absolutely no, that is utterly ridiculous, the Papavar party can't resist from the impulse of undermining its own nation and institutions just to reach its model of a socialist, atheistic, anarchic collective Furlanìe, while you talk economics we do history, if we held power since now is because the people know that... ...Papavar is untrustworthy, and their answer to this problem is... ...make us look untrustworthy too, so they get a chance. thanks to the Vuaite Natzionâl Furlanìe is a strong, stable and promising country, and no radio conversation can change that"

Clâr Martirs "listen... ...not here to insult anybody, I came here to talk facts, I'm no... ...philosopher, and the facts show me a very different picture: strong? by this day there is still no program or economic support for gravely maimed soldiers, our public hospitals... ...barely put you back on your feet, for poor people, those who can't afford to pay for private hospitals, any disease could be fatal, the rural communities are alone on this, and on many oth... ...issues. promising-"

Lodi Sbrissenins "this government ha increased... ...Health Ministry budget from 5.5 to 7%, these are facts, you don't want these?"

Clâr Martirs "Promising? our economy is one of the slowest of the region an-"

Lodi Sbrissenins "you can't ignore the fact that many... ...lives have been saved thanks to the extra funds allocated to the Health Ministry, 60 million Francs, taken from the ministry of defence, I know that because I was personally against, we cannot let... ...ur guard down, peace can only be maintained between equal partners, but this is what we did... ...what are you talking about is just lies, no facts at all, socialist propaganda"

Presenter "let's... let's close this episode with a quick question for both of you: what... ...should do to enhance the rural areas"

Clâr Martirs "welfare, the state needs to step in to help the rural communities, subsidies enterprises going through hard times, and ensure education and health are accessible to all"

Lodi Sbrissenins "the state is not the people's mother, that is the essence of communism, the rural areas just need capable local administrators, the habit of some rural nobles to leave their lands and move to the biggest city in the area has to stop, and I hope His Majesty is working already in that direction"

Presenter "thank you siôr Sbrissenins, thank you siôr Martirs, and thank you to our listeners for tuning in on this episod of.... ..."

Presenter "... certainly does... ...spirit... ... ... ...I have now the honour of hosting the Confenonîr himself, siôr Martìn Baldas

MB "thank you for the warm welcome"

Presenter "siôr Baldas, after a political survey showed a decisive lead for the Papavar party in the upcoming winter elections, siôr Barcje called for a no confidence vote against you... ...party leadership, the vote ended with your victory 65 against 51 if I'm correct. what do you think was his motivation? and how is it knowing that nearly half the party is against you?"

MB "I wasn't shocked or saddened if you're worried *chuckles* in fact, this result is just the change of mind of a sector of the party, absolutely understandable in a moment of crisis, but I'm not worried, we still have time to fight back, and after all surveys aren't always accurate"

Presenter "do you think this fall of support has a particular reason of being?"

MB "well I certainly am to blame for a certain extent, my agenda was clear from the start, I wanted to find Furlanìe its own place in the international community, the trade agreements signed, ...participation, although limited to an observatory role, to the Serenêr CREPE, and the close work with businesses to make Friulian exports more successful are a proof of that... ...f course, being a human, focusing so much on the outside has restricted my energy on the inside, I should have consulted more with the nation, and work more closely with the small businesses too, but I don't regret this line of action, since I'm sure the decisions I've made will grow into... ...fruits in the future"

Presenter "speaking of this, what seems to have impacted more negatively is the recent signing of the commercial treaty with Serenere, that saw... ...l farmers and entire mountain communities rise in rebellion, so to speak"

MB "yes, yes... r... ...unexpectedly strong, I think the main issue here, besides accuses of mendacy and misunderstanding... ...s that the agreement was, in a way, incomplete. we wanted to extend this partnership over other areas but... ...not felt strong enough to do it all in one go, and now, with all the pressures from the inside going against us, we can't get back to a negotiating table without being supported by a popular vote. we plan to proceed on this path, and support more exports... ...Estie. as the agreement comes into effect, we are also considering a lowering of the fiscal pressure on the retailers, and relax our immigration rules to attract more tourists and minds from the outside world... ...full faith in the national police and secret services, and I am sure they would easily handle a small change in the status quo, this project requires time and popular support, but will certainly benefit our economy greatly, especially those mountain communities that felt ignored for so much time... ...nd the world of culture, which has seen very little of the outside world"

Presenter "thank you very much siôr Confenonîr I... ..."

Presenter "... elections closing by... ...ve with us siôr Valerian Grasiediu... ...Vuaite Natzionâl, and Iedôr Riciardin from the Papavar party. gentlemen, a topic that is often left to the side of the political agenda is the situation of the noble-serving farmers of the plains, a very old legacy from our past that still exists very much unchanged to this day, the Papavar party has been hoping for a change, siôr Riciardin.."

Iedôr Riciardin "the unfair imbalance in responsibility and earnings in the sector has never been touched by the Vuaite, considering the men and women serving, some... ...for generations, a country noble, to be a matter for the owners themselves, and for the crown at maximum, an entire sector of our population relegated to a role that is not so far from the concept of slavery... ...Papavar party is convinced that the time has come for a renegotiation of this old human contract, the nobles need to concede more decision-making power to the farmers, and the profits need to be shared more evenly, if they want those farms to remain theirs"

Valerian Grasiediu "while the proposals of the Papavar seem reasonable, and I can assure you that the crown already is negotiating in that direction with the nobles of the plains, especially the ones in Friûl, that represent the largest part of this sector; it must be understood that acting the way siôr Riciardin is illustrating would be deeply wrong economically, politically, but... ...ost importantly, a threat to the concept of private enterprise and to the structure of capitalism itself. if parliament is allowed to dictate its way into the private endeavours of its citizens once, what will ensure that... ...t won't do the same with a simple citizen? what will ensure that it won't start cultivate its own interests by attacking the peoples of Furlanìe?"

Iedôr Riciardin "nonsense, we are talking about an unjust system that has gone on for centuries, with a profound imbalance between the two sides of the contract, a decent nation needs to... ...overn its economy to make it balanced and guarantee equal rights to the citizens"

Valerian Grasiediu "a centuries old tradition, exactly, that is the proof that what is considered perfectly reasonable, or even progressive, as the plantations have been in the late middle ages, can become an example of an unreasonable reactionary system of values... ...how can... ...guarantee that going on this road will be an one time only action by parliament?... ...have faith in the system of government that has characterised Furlanìe for centuries, and made it strong enough to pass the test of time in many occasions... ...owe Tergest to this system of government and our societal structure, and we shouldn't distance ourselves too much from our traditions, that is why the Vuaite Natzionâl has reached for the Grand Duke to follow the situation, that is how this issue should be faced to prevent a dangerous distortion of the state"

Iedôr Riciardin "the time for a change is now, siôr Grasiediu, the Crown had a lot of time to act in this regard, we can't permit this to go on forever"

Valerian Grasiediu "if you don't respect the mechanisms that make Furlanìe what it is, and insist on revolutionising it according to external ideas, i honestly get worried siôr Riciardin, that you might prefer a very different Furlanìe... ...socialist Furlanìe, and I think voters should be aware of this before it is too late"

Iedôr Riciardin "what you and your party fear is not socialism, is change, in any way possible, the state needs to move on into a new era, and you know... ...won't be able to survive without the structures that have kept you in place until... hopefully... the next elections"

Valerian Grasiediu "maybe you are right, we fear change, and why shouldn't we? history is full of examples where the need for change brought nothing but chaos and destruction, will you be the Cogoi of 1960? will you fight for a great cause, just to see Furlanìe crumble as... ...did the Tergestin empire? we both want a better future, the Vuaite just prefers to be sure that the changes made will actually go in the right direction. furthermore, I don't personally see... ...plantation farmers as slaves, but as people with unmatched know-how in their field, they do deserve better, but they deserve it without the risk of loosing everything, they don't have just their paper chains to lose... ..."

Presenter "... to give you a quick update on the most recent news, with a last special focus on the elections... ...final counting of the votes shows a clear victory for... ...Vuaite Natzionâl. The Papavar party, led by the progressive Varamio Cjavalîr... suffered a tragic defeat, in a press conference siôr Cjavalîr announced... ...resignation.
On the other hand, the winner, Martìn Baldas has lost consensus inside the Vuaite... while keeping his place as leader of a victorious party, the cheese controversy limited his gains... ...being closely defeated in numbers by the monarchist block inside the Vuaite Natzionâl, but Cor. Lusîr Deimâr de Cjampfuart, leader of the monarchists, in an interview has let the Aralt di Grau newspaper know that his political area will remain loyal to the Baldas leadership.
The only area of the Papavar party to gain from these elections is the Serazinist left, that increased its seats... ...15 to 19, becoming the second most prominent left-wing political block.
...division between cities and countryside has been clearly visible during these elections, with the Vuaite gaining the upper hand in all the big cities of Furlanìe... ...only winning the rural Longhe valley, and stealing a close victory in the town of Glemone. "
