Britain Votes The Aftermath

Britain%20Votes.png?raw=1
And there's another country, I've heard of long ago,
Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know;
We may not count her armies, we may not see her King;
Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;
And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase,
And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.
- I Vow to Thee, My Country, British Patriotic hymn

The hustings are over and the votes have been counted. After a tense election campaign, fought bitterly between two candidates far outside the British elections, the results are in.

Of the 650 seats in the House of Commons, the Unity Party headed by Alphonse Wellesley has won 338. 282 seats were won by the Restoration Party, headed by Sidney White. 20 Seats were won by the Conservative Party (who held power before the election) and 10 by the Labour Party.

At his campaign headquarters in Glasgow, Wellesley took the stage alongside his partner Ayanami Rei and his de facto child Eevi Nieminen; there he addressed a rapturous crowd of supporters, praising White for being a strong opponent and promising to work for the greater good of the United Kingdom.

The Unity Party may have won majority, but significant issues still remain. White remains a powerful figure, having won his own seat and holding considerable influence. He is spearheading the movement to have Princess Catherine declared Queen, as opposed to Princess Alexandrina. The movement cannot pass without the support of the Unity Party, which gives it the responsibility of decision.

Accepting the movement will appease major elements of the population that remain doubtful. However, the Monarch of Britain is not as impartial as they once were, and has broadly defined powers, including that of veto: this is not a lightly-made decision.

Advice

Actor Dialogue
Ginevre2.png?raw=1 "This will affect Britain primarily. Accepting Catherine has the potential to improve Britain's stability and satisfaction, but it will limit the degree to which we can control Britain in future situations."
AriadnePage.png?raw=1 "Other states don't really care what happens to the British Monarchy."
Jeanne%20Pog.png?raw=1 "We possess the ability to remove Catherine, but making it look like we weren't behind it would be difficult."
Kourosh%20Pog.png?raw=1 "I don't care for it, but if the situation in Britain worsens we can garrison the country with some infantry forces to keep it secure. Meanwhile, Catherine is likely to try to rein in the military resources we can take from Britain."
Surov2.png?raw=1 "I struggle to find a technological solution to succession crises. I suppose we could tell Catherine that we'll give technology if she shuts her mouth and toes the line."
