General Trebuchet refuses to be drawn

Chief Peacekeeper declines joint request from PeopleFirst and the Government for budget transparency.

The Chief Peacekeeper has declined a joint request from PeopleFirst and the Government for a full accounting of the military’s expenditure in the last fiscal year.  In an unprecedented display of co-operation last month, PeopleFirst and the Government called a temporary halt to their numerous ongoing battles and submitted the demand under the Arch Dean Protocol, which requires a response within 42 days.  The formal response was duly delivered by one of General Trebuchet’s aides precisely 42 days later.  It read - in full - ‘No.’


‘The Government doesn’t feel this is really within the spirit of the Arch Dean Protocol,’ said Government spokesman Ormstak Bemfrist yesterday, ‘which I’d argue requires compliance with a request rather than a negative response.’


PeopleFirst Executive Director Crosten Prise Mestashter was equally unimpressed.  ‘If General Trebuchet thinks he can continue to obfuscate about what the military is up to, he’s going to be disappointed.  The Government may be prepared to play these political games, but PeopleFirst isn’t.  The General shouldn’t be surprised if PeopleFirst’s next move is less... orthodox.’


When asked whether this was a threat of violence, Prise Mestashter merely smirked.
