(United Kingdom Progression Party)

The UKPP aims to be a party that supports new players by allowing them to help shape party policy. We strive to be transparent, favouring democratic conferences and postal balloting over executive decisions. Your in-game age, strength, wealth or connections are not what matters - your commitment, activity and desire to succeed do.


Policies

In-Game Laws

UKPP.pngTAXES

By party wide ballot UKPP have shown they are in favour of sensible low domestic taxes (VAT & Income) while retaining high import tariffs on raw materials in order to favor domestic producers, but the party does acknowledge that there will be ‘special circumstances’ where these may be increased for a short duration.


UKPP.pngMINIMUM WAGE

The UKPP has no plans to increase the current minimum wage. The financial gains are marginal compared to the increased bureaucracy it would create in the management of eUK social programs private and national. The Private sector worker can easily find a wage over the legal minimum wage and the commune worker can just as easily sell their donated supplies to fund their own personal advancement.


UKPP.pngDONATIONS

The UKPP supports the donation from the treasury to national organisations except in instances where these funds are to be used to fund private MU's or non-inclusive social programs (application to participation not offered in-game)


UKPP.pngNATURAL ENEMIES

No UKPP member shall vote or support an initiation of war unless the targeted nation is occupying native/coded eUK regions or to help Allies in need if requested.


UKPP.pngCITIZENSHIP

UKPP Congress members are free to use their passes on those applicants that have been deemed as reliable and passed the CS committee’s controls, so long as the committee is comprised of individuals from various parties. If the committee is under the domain of a single party then UKPP Congress members may use their passes as they please so long as it is not to the detriment of the eUK. In this event they should seek advice from party colleagues or friends but are under no obligation to do so or to follow the advice given.


UKPP.pngIMPEACHMENT

UKPP Congress members shall only impeach a CP if the CP is inactive, stealing from the nation, acting not in the interests of the country or they have requested an impeachment.


UKPP.pngDICTATOR

The UKPP holds the position of the CP and the DICTATOR being held by 2 separate individuals, preferably but not exclusively from 2 different parties. When the position of Dictator is being challenged and a vote has been called for the Congress members may vote for the individual of their choosing without interference.

Community Affairs

UKPP.pngTHE FORUM DISPUTE

Members are not restricted in anyway as to whom they wish to socialise with and they may freely use any means of communication they see fit. Having said that, the two most prevalent forms are Forums and IRC and UKPP has now fought over the years to address issues and inconsistencies going back beyond the formation of the party therefore the UKPP is not adverse to exploring, in cooperation with other parties or groups of eUKers a more acceptable and less limiting choice then has been traditionally offered. To that end #UKPP is now an open channel at all times barring party conferences (where non-UKPPers are free to observe). The UKPP also recognises that any forum designated by eUK welcoming message as the 'national' forum may consider its claim to the 'national' title as valid


UKPP.pngNATIONAL ARMY VS NATIONALLY FUNDED MU'S

The UKPP supports the existence of an apolitical national army based on equality of supplies and is opposed to the scrapping of such an institution, its related companies and will strongly oppose any funding of private MU's.


UKPP.pngWORKING IN THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT

Any UKPP member is free to take a role in whatever system the political majority designate as 'government' but they do so as a private citizen, not as a member of the party. Acceptance of any position is not indicative of UKPP support for or influence in said government and the member is not asked or expected to promote a UKPP agenda in what is an eUK role.

Party Affairs

UKPP.pngCONGRESS ELECTIONS

UKPP favours active players that wish to make a difference. We have no formal requirements for entering congress under a UKPP banner. It is the domain of the PP (party president) to organise the order of runners how he or she sees fit. Things such as being seen as active, willing and responsible will however guide the PP.


UKPP.pngCP ELECTIONS

After the end of congressional elections, members may notify the PP of their desire to run for the CP position by Private Mail. The party is under no obligation to back any UKPP candidate as the official party choice but a ballot of the membership will be held with ‘free vote/none of the above’ option being included on the ballot paper. The backing off a candidate does not mean that the party membership must vote for that particular individual but shows the majority of individuals support that individual..


UKPP.pngPP ELECTIONS

Any member is free to put themselves forward for and campaign for the position of Party President.

In all cases the vote of the individual member at in-game elections is theirs to use as they wish and they are not obligated or required to follow any party or national whip

History

The UKPP is a party modelled around supporting new players and giving them a chance to get involved while also providing a platform for older, dedicated citizens to encourage the next generation of leaders. Formed from a rebellion in UKRP and a PTO'd UKWP, it has grown into the largest party in the UK and has enjoyed a steady increase in political involvement and influence.
