Full story

Mike Wooldridge was born on day 777 just before Germany was defeated by Poland. After a week of living in the UK, he started to realise didn't feel like he was a part of the country. So on day 789, he moved to the newly independent Belgium.

However when he arrived there he found that the economy was in a pitiful condition, there was barely any food, and the country was split between Pro-Eden and Pro-Phoenix propaganda in the news. However seeing this he had the thought that maybe Belgium needed his loyalty more than UK, so he applied for citizenship, not knowing much about Belgium when he arrived he did research on the country, the past PTO's, its voluntary unions with UK and Netherlands which created the UNL.

As time went by he started to notice new parties appearing, obviously some of them were foreigners trying to PTO Belgium, but 1 party stood out and that was Belgium for Belgians, so he researched on the party read newspapers, and he realised that this party was best for him and Belgium.

As time went by, Mike became congressman for Flanders, and as he became congressman he put his plan into motion of trying to increase the amount of RL Belgians in Belgium. He saw that the only way to guarantee Belgium was safe from future PTO threats was through an increase of RL Belgians, who would work towards making their country better because of RL ties. During Mike's 4th term in Congress for Flanders he became the Belgian ambassador to Ireland, taking over from Stilpo, and a couple of days later he became the ambassador to the USA and UK.

It comes to the stage later on of when Mike would gain is 5th term in Congress for Flanders, however BfB had strayed away from what it used to represent, and when they made a plan which threatened the future democracy of Belgium and the National Pride of its People, he then made the decision on day 956 to join Res Belgica as a Congressman.

During Mike Wooldridge's 7th term in Congress and the 2nd full term in Congress for Res Belgica on Day 1,029, the party president of Res Belgica, left his post, and Mike became party president.

Mike later gained his 8th term in Congress, however soon realised the community of Belgium was no longer the same, he had made many friends, however, had also lost many, he started to think a lot about whether to leave his beloved Belgium behind and came to the conclusion to change eCountry. He resigned his congressional seat and handed the Party Presidency over to Helviro, then wrote an article saying farewell to Belgium.

Mike Wooldridge left Belgium on Day 1,044, although he had not made his mind up of what country to immigrate to, he chose to move to Portugal for the time being, on his arrival he was met with suspicion by the Portuguese government, and was not made as comfortable as he thought he would, however, he still fought in the battle against Spain in the region of the Algarve, which he had moved to, then moving to Aletanjo soon after because of the loss of the region. On Day 1,048 however, the region of Aletanjo was captured by the USA. In the USA newspaper articles, there was an advert asking people to immigrate to New Zealand, and so once reading the article he gained a ticket and moved to the Tasmania region of Australia on Day 1,049, waiting for when eNew Zealand was available to be moved to.

On Day 1,052, Mike finally immigrated to New Zealand and gained citizenship. After only 5 days of citizenship, Mike became incredibly homesick and wished to go back to Belgium, so on day 1,057, he looked at the market to see if he could get a moving ticket, however, there were no tickets available in New Zealand. The panicking Mike Wooldridge was saved by Sammy Tanghe who donated two moving tickets to him so he could get back to his homeland.

When he had got back he re-established himself as a congressman for Res Belgica and spent a 9th and 10th term in Congress in Belgium, however some time in his 10th term he slipped into a coma. He awoke 2 months later on Day 1,153 and found that a lot had happened whilst he was gone, however still the Belgium community was as friendly as always and welcomed him back once again.

And on Day 1,163 he not only became a Congressman for Flanders for the 11th time, but he also became Ambassador to Hungary and the Minister of Immigration in Sammy Tanghe's Cabinet after Mikhail Alexander left Belgium. He enjoyed his new job of MoI, however his job as Ambassador to Hungary, was not what he expected, Mike had gone into the job expecting to make many new friends, but the Hungarians were hard to contact.

On Day 1,174 he became Minister of Home Affairs in LeValeureuxLiegeois's Cabinet, once he had the job of MoHA he resigned his job as Ambassador to Hungary. Mike remained MoHA during Shadowukcs presidency, after LeValeureuxLiegeois tragically had to resign. Nearing the Congressional elections of February 2011, Mike joined the Belgian Army, and fought against France during the "Kallmar Incident", as a result of the war, Belgium had been left with only Flanders thanks to France occupying Brussels and Wallonia, in the Congressional elections he ended up being one of just ten people getting elected to Congress, however shortly after Mike disappeared.

Help from Aldous

On Day 1,263 Mike had awoken, the exact instant he had returned he became confused.

"Who are these new faces? What has happened to the people I used to know? A war with the UK?! Can I ever get used to Belgium again?"

Then out of the darkness, he heard a familiar voice.....

"You have been gone for 3 months Mike Wooldridge, a lot of things have changed since you disappeared, come sit with me, have yourself an ice cold Beer to calm your nerves".

Mike could not believe what he was seeing, it was Aldous the Meek!

"Aldous why do you honour me with your presence? I do not deserve it"
"Because Mike you am a Belgian in need of guidance"

Sipping my Beer, Mike silently said: "But Aldous I don't know if I want to remain a Belgian, I don't feel like I fit in anymore, so much as changed........should I stay or should I go.... oh, wise Aldous?"

"I can't give you the answer Mike, that you must figure out yourself, but I shall give you the tools so you may gain the answer.

Have another Beer, and once you have finished that one have another one, keep drinking until you can't drink anymore, then you will gain your answer"

Mike nodded his head down "Thankyou Aldous you are forever wise......." Lifting his head up Aldous had gone, what he said echoed in Mikes mind, so he had a drink then after that one he had another, many more followed, and then all went black......

He opened his eyes, it was bright, the heat was unbearable, and he was lying on a beach, it seemed only a few hours since he had seen Aldous, but now it was obvious that it had been a lot longer.

"Where the hell am I?"

Mike looked around for evidence of his location, people on the beach was wearing shirts with a flag on them, he couldn't make out what the flag was, and then it dawned on him where he was...

"Brazil!? what the hell, how did I get here?"

He went to the City Hall to figure out how he had got here, and then found out that he had also applied for Citizenship in eBrazil!

He was trapped in a strange new country, Mike had always wanted to move to Brazil in the hope it would help him with his Portuguese, but he realised this wasn't what he wanted, he wanted to be in Belgium. Mike managed to get in touch with Critically, and he told him how to get out of his citizenship request.

He caught the first flight possible out of eBrazil and returned to his beloved Flanders, then walked into his house and took a shower, leaving the shower with the towel wrapped around him, when all of a sudden Aldous appeared, Mike jumped back almost dropping his towel.

"Aldous, why did you give me all them Beers if you knew I was going to end up in a strange place with no way back?"

Aldous pulled out a seat and Mike sat down, he began explaining his reason for getting Mike drunk.

"You needed an answer, I was just giving you the tools to get that answer, you went to Brazil because you thought you wanted to leave Belgium, but when you arrived in Brazil, you realized the answer was that you wanted to stay in Belgium and be a Belgian......

You make mistakes when you are drunk and for you, that mistake was leaving Belgium.....So now you have your answer, you are Belgian"

Aldous smiled and in a flash he had gone, leaving Mike with a settled mindset of what he wanted to do.

Beerist Missionary

On Day 1,332 Mike began to prepare for a move to another country, he wanted to spread the words of Aldous the Meek to other lands, on day 1,344 he had made up his mind that he was going to spread the word of Aldous to the people of North Korea. He applied for citizenship, then contacted the CP, on what his plans were, the CP AlexQ said that he must contact the countries congress, the congress however soon shown their greed in saying they would only accept the citizenship request if Mike Wooldridge paid Icon-gold.gif 15 - 20 GOLD.

Mike Wooldridge was appalled by the North Korean congress's proposition and on Day 1,353 he returned to Belgium, upon his arrival back to Belgium he had learned that Queen Mittekemuis had abdicated her throne, and politics was beginning to heat up once again.

It was on day 1,425 during the Belgian "Civil War" that Mike started to become active again in Belgian life, on Day 1,430 he became an active member in the Belgian Civilian Army. On Day 1,461 Mike wished to show is political affiliation however once re-joining Res Belgica he chose a more backstage stance and he drifted away once again.
