Reform planned for Brettish Isles


WESTMINSTER (CS) | Reeling from a noticeable slowdown in activity, the Lord Protector of the Brettish Isles has embarked on a plan to implements various reforms in the micronation.

Labelling the micronation’s name as “terrible,” Lord Protector James Sherrinford has approached parliamentarians with a challenge to come up with a new name. The most popular names currently under consideration by Parliament include Brettania and Anglia, though there is no indication as to when a vote on either, or another alternative, will be undertaken.

Sherrinford had also expressed his desire last month to undertake “extensive changes … to make [the micronation] more interesting, more workable and more comprehensive.”

While he did not expand on his plans, the Coprieta Standard has learned that significant legislative reforms underpin his initiative. Sherrinford’s plan would establish a bicameral parliament in which the lower house would consist of a council of the government ministers and other high-ranking officials, while the upper house would be a “grand council” of elected officials. Those officials would be chosen in part by a system of simulated elections into the micronation’s political environment that would emulate 18th and early-19th century British politics as a means of creating a more interesting dynamic.

A stricter citizenship law to limit multiple characters per participant and the reintroduction of Christianity as the state religion are also being considered.
