[Heavily WIP, more will be added over time, will only be doing one post per turn [unless something major happens], this will also just be an overview]

John Finch - Good morning Britain, we hope you all had a wonderful and safe Christmas and have great
plans for New Years Eve. As you all enjoy your selves we here at BBC will keep you up to
date on all the major news, and here is Anna Stampanhow with the latest

Anna Stampanhow - Thank you job, currently we have a few major events going at the moment

Black Arrow Funding Boost
The PM has decided that for the future of the UK's space program it is with in our
best interests to increase the funding to the still in development Black Arrow rocket, this
funding boost will hopefully be able to push the maiden flight to late 1968 instead of the current
early 1969 date. This funding boost will ensure 8 Black Arrow V1 launches [2 being test and 6 launching
payloads] and funding left over to develop two other rockets to fit different needs. NASA has been
asked to help with this development

Debt Payment
The PM has also stated that he plans on reducing the national debt massively, stating
that "in 10 years time we will have earned back the money we spent on this debt". it
is unknown yet how much will be paided off

Dhofar Rebellion
The PM has also stated that more units will be sent to Oman to put down the Dhofar Rebellion
[2 more units], This is seen as the only way forward to protect and modernize our Ommaney
friends with in the region

Irish Civil War Talks
in his last statement before Christmas break the PM has called on all sides of the ICW to come
to negotiations, failure to do so would force the UK to break up the conflict.

In other news the UK is sending a group of reporters and scientists to the waters and regions around
Argentina to see what is happening there and to return reports back to the UK
