|I, Karacticus, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, hereby appoint JerryGFL, Officer of the Order of the British eRepublik Empire, as conferred by the United Kingdom Honours Committee.
Jerry, born 3rd July 2008 is a respected and senior member of UK society. He held a number of key political positions during a colourful career. He ran a Newspaper eRepublikan Times which boasted 310 subscribers - one of the highest in the UK. He was also co-founder and co-owner of the Platinum Group, a raw materials organization. His death was discovered in May 2012
Jerry was born in Scotland 3rd July 2008.
Having risen through the UKRP ranks to become Vice Party President at the time, with Rayf Draysons decision to launch a campaign to be Prime Minister, the Party Presidency became vacant and Jerry took over this position. Under Jerry as Party President, UKRP won both the November and December general elections during one of the party's strongest ever periods.
With Dishmcds in the Prime Ministerial seat, Jerry was appointed Minister of Health and set about the task of setting up the National Health Service, which was passed by the House of Commons in October 2008. His time as Prime Minister aside, many see Jerry's work as Minister of Health as his finest hour, in setting up and successfully directing an organization and ministry that was and is respected throughout the New World. Very unique to UK, the NHS plays not only a practical role but has become part of British & Northern Irish culture. It remains in place today, surviving through times of reform & change.
Prime Minister of UK
In February 2008 JerryGFL ran for Prime Minister for the first time, hoping to become the 5th consecutive UKRP Prime Minister. However a coalition was formed against him, commonly referred to as The Yellow Submarine Coalition, consisting of The Unity Party, People's Communist Party, Movement for Democratic Unity, The Right Party and the Free-Thinking Party (later named the Independent Free-Thinking Party). Subsequently, the election was lost to the coalition by over 140 votes. The coalition candidate, however, Final Destiny soon disappeared from both forums and the game and was eventually impeached with 26 votes in favour and 4 votes against.
JerryGFL thus became Prime Minister, a role which he was to continue into March 2009 when he was re-elected with 349 votes, or approximately 44% of the vote. He proved to have one of the most difficult terms as Prime Minister, faced with a severe lack of funds, serious overspending by previous Presidents as well as a public demanding military action while World War III enveloped the New World. "He took bold initiative, he made a reformation and he built up the economy from nothing", a quote from UK citizen RyanMcCulloch regarding financial reforms instigated under Jerry's leadership which once again built up the UK reserve.
Widely regarded as a strong but quiet figure, Jerry left the UK on 5th April 2009 in a much better state than he had found it in thanks to minimal spending, the calming of a war-hungry public & sensible financial decisions. His legacy lives on, particularly through the NHS which although was suspended for some time under his own term as Prime Minister due to funding, is now back up and running and continues to serve all active UK citizens who need its help.
