Citizens of Switzerland,
As your King, it is my great honour to announce to you the establishment of a new age of Swiss dominance. As King of the Swiss, and as rightful Lord Marshal of the Armed Guard, I have issued a Royal Charter for the Armed Guard once more. After nearly six years of allowing the Armed Guard to dwindle into nothingness, it is time for the Swiss to return to its full extent. I present to you, citizens of Switzerland, the reformed Armed Guard.

On the occasion of the eleventh of July in the year of the Lord, seventeen-fifty, an agreement was reached between representatives of the Spanish Syndicate and those of the Swiss Guard. This agreement would layout the foundation for a peace agreement that would seek to aleviate the tensions brought upon by the "June Crisis". This agreement maintained that the Spanish-Swiss Trade Agreement of 1750 would, as now continue to remain both valid and in effect. Furthermore, this opened both the Kingdom of Spain and the Kingdom of the Swiss to the possibility of future cooperation between the states, should each side maintain their promises made at the time of peace.
The parties to the agreement were:

Good evening citizens of Switzerland,
Over the course of this weekend, I have come up to date with the happenings of this week. Unfortunately, there has been a grave betrayal that has left our government in half once again.

Over the course of this last week, there has been a largely divided public on the outcome of the Beckett v. Venables case, which resulted in the conviction of Rose Beckett, Queen-Consort of Spain, sentenced to 3 months of imprisonment under the charges of battery and assault. Richard Venables, Statsminister of Denmark, was cleared of all charges based on lack of evidence.
Though perhaps you may claim that given Lady Beckett's status, Lord Grey would have no right to pursue charges against his attackers, this is false.
