    Apologies for long absence gents, I will also be unable to provide anything meaningful until the week of the 7th to 11th. Tough dates, and I'm on the road so little opportunity to devise strategy.

    Orders of Austria will be on until 4th of January, maybe earlier. If somebody wishes to discuss some last thing with the Danube Monarchy, he is welcome... By the way, can we put the territorial sitituation on a map?

    P.S. Sorry for the abseenteism.

    So good to see that the King Kurt softly softly diplomatic approach has been picked up by my heir to the British Empire!!

    Greetings my fellow IHers - after over 6 months I thought it was time to look in and see what had happened. I found 5 PMs - my apologies for the non reply - if anybody feels the need to pick my brains, I will attempt to reply.More pleasingly, I found that my old friend, Franconius, has revived the COE and moved it on to just before the year of revolutions - interesting times indeed. Perhaps Franc I could join the game as Karl Marx - he was a frequent visitor to the Isle of Wight while he was writing the Communist manifesto.

    For the moment, I will sit on the sidelines and observe - and occasionaly chuckle as the nations of Europe battle against the odds.

    It's very easy when we require responses from absent players before making decisions.

    You are right. This is a very bad start. Csargo hasn't been in the forum for more than a week. Last time he promised me to send orders the next days. Kival and PP haven't been around for almost a week! Greyblades is around, but hasn't sent his orders. Therefore the four countries at war are missing. I cannot replace them by doing their job.!!

    It would appear so.

    I must say it is very irregular, I've heard of secret alliances and covert wars but secret peace treaties?

    Wierd. Anyway, I'll get my orders in tonight.

    Oh and if france needs any help getting it's troops out of egypt we are willing to lend the use of our transport ships, we expect french troops out of the area at the end of the turn.

    I also repeat: anyone found trying to continue the naval war after peace is declared will recieve a bill for ordinance expended in their 'pacification'.

    1847

    January:

    Napoleon, the former nephew of the great emperor, is elected as new president of France. High expectations are connected to this nomination. The former King leaves the country and lives from now on at the English exile.

    The new Danish constitution comes into effect. From now on Schleswig and Holstein are part of the Danish realm. There a protests among the German population of Schleswig-Holstein.

    The Russian government announces a peace treaty with the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. The Porte gives up any claims on European territories except Istanbul. This declaration is unexpected and causes some irritation, but finally it causes jubilance all over Europe. With some delay, Austria, Greece and Prussia accept that treaty. It seems, though, that it was a diplomatic coup by the Russian Czar. There are parties all over Europe, especially in the freed territories. France and England do not make any statements.

    The news of the peace inflames the finance markets. The Sues Channel Company stock price win three times his values within a couple of days. The company reports that it will need 30 millions more capital, but has no problem to get this on the market. Stock quotations of all English railroad, mining and producing companies raise.

    The expectations of a new era of peace also reaches the stock markets at Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Vienna and Petersburg, even if not in the same degree as at London.

    The jubilance is decreased by the hunger crisis, which rules all over Europe, but with outmost brutality at Ireland. The English government tries to react by forbidding the export of food. However, it does nothing to increase the imports. But even this law goes too far in the eyes of some Manchester liberals.
    At the same time the protests at Manchester continue. Police withdraws and mercenaries of plant owners begin to attack the workers with clubs and sabers. But this time, the workers are better prepared than the last time. They build barricades and defend themselves with stones. Soon the first shot bursts. In a bloody battle 40 men are killed and many more are wounded. Finally the government decides to stop this and sends a cavalry division to stop the riots. However, the workers are not willing to leave. Only after the government promised to pass new electoral laws with equal vote the workers agree to return to work.

    Texas becomes part of the United states of America. Frictions about the new frontier between the USA and Mexico lead to an armed accident which causes a declaration of war by the Congress of the United States.

    There are anti-English protests at France, Prussia, Austria, Russia, Savoy and Sicily. French protesters demand sanctions against la perfide Albion.

    England starts to enlist new recruits.

    Disbanded foreign volunteer regiments decide to go on pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Soon, 60,000 are heading south. After they pillaged Alexandretta, the other local governors decide to support them with free food .

    April:

    Algeria: There is a riot against the French occupiers. Under the leadership of Abd el-Kader French settlements and posts are burned down.

    The English government passes a number of new laws. One of them introduces a equal votes to all who pay taxes. Therefore many workers and all unemployed still do not have the right to vote. This causes new protests in the industrial cities.
    There is also a law which gives all colored subjects the right to get promoted in administration, army and navy. Several officers lay down their ranks and leave the army, because they cannot serve under this conditions any longer. The 1st admiral tries to mediate. He says: "Our captains were always recruited among the finest English families. This is the secret of the strength and success of the Royal Navy. And I will be damned if I have the intention to change this."
    There will also free education for all children.

    Arabia declares itself independent.

    At the parliament there is a hard dispute between the government and the opposition. Even several members of the governmental party do not support the new course of the "communist" government.

    Bad weather all over Europe makes it clear that there will be another bad harvest this year.

    The English government spends money to feed the poorest in Ireland. Yet, many die. Ten thousands leave to find more luck in the United States of America.

    The English foreign minister retires. Queen Victoria expresses her concerns about political situation.
    This, of course, causes new protests in France. Most of the French people see this as a declaration of war and the papers demand that the president orders the navy to attack the British Med.Squad: "Revanche pour Beirut! Revanche pour Alexandria!" However, Napoleon stays quiet.

Protests reach Naples and spread soon further north.

    All over Europe, papers report of the threat of a new war between England and France. The stock market at London breaks down, textile and railroad stocks loose incredibly. Many men of the middle class lost all of their fortune within months. Only some stocks like steel and ship yards are stable.
