05/01/1470 Monarch Election Questions - Lady Quinn



Our fourth interview is with Lady Quinn from Westmorland.

✍️ Good day to you! Welcome to KAP. Would you tell the readers about yourself? Specifically, your full name, where you live and why you want to win this election for the monarch.

I'm Quinn MacKenzie Martin. I live in Kendal, Westmorland. I'm what you might call a reluctant politician. However, I do enjoy leading teams to victory. So, I guess I want to be elected monarch so that we can all improve England; its activity, its functions and its camaraderie.

✍️ What skills and competencies should a monarch have to perform effectively?

A good monarch needs to have the ability to pick and cooperate with a diverse team full of people that have England's best interests at heart. That team makes a big difference. This leader needs to be humble, imaginative and understanding. They need to be able to manage differing ideas and complex problems without taking slights personally. Discernment is incredibly important.

✍️ Do you think you have those skills and competencies?

Yes. I do have a track record of being able to lead teams to solutions that work. I also try to listen, encourage, and inspire my team. I also have never resigned from a position. Frankly, I will work hard, and keep trying until I'm dead.

✍️ What does a typical day of a monarch look like?

1. Morning meeting with the Privy. (Here I'll get informed on the most important project statuses, tasks and meetings.)
2. Check with the Royal Secretary regarding the schedule.
3. More coffee.
4. Engagements with people in the throne room, heads of institutions, advisors, all aimed at pursuing our priorities, and bettering England.
5. Encouraging my advisors and my administration to work with others to advance my election program.
6. Dinner. Possible appearances, etc. Tavern visits.
7. Sleep and then get up to do it all again.


✍️ If your day has veered from your expected normal, how do you handle that?

I don't expect any day to be normal per se. If England is active, then crazy things are happening. I will roll with the waves, and let the criticisms roll off my back. I will work to help others who run the national offices. I expect them to be capable, but I'll reach out to them anyway.

✍️ Tell us how others describe you.

I would hope they would describe me as thoughtful and idealistic. I strive to have a positive impact on others. I rarely shy away from an opportunity to do the right thing, even when it's challenging. I'm passionate, charismatic, kind and have a great desire to make people feel worthwhile. The world is full of people who are unappreciated and half-forgotten, and it shouldn't be.

✍️ If elected, how do you recommend you can motivate and direct others to be more productive and active in the kingdom?

As in my platform, we plan to implement a national survey system to find the biggest ideas and concerns in this country. Everyone has their own needs. The surveys will inform us, and coincide with the activities that we have planned. I will work hard to make activity a reality. I think it is the cornerstone of my platform.

I also want to pick an amazing Privy. That Privy will then encourage itself, brainstorm ideas, find solutions, and work as one to achieve directives.


✍️ What do you think of the phrase lead by example?

Leading by example is the only way to lead. If you are self-involved, dismissive or you don't listen to others, people won't follow you for long. In contrast, when you're honest and hardworking, your team will also want to work harder. Also, a good leader won't ask anyone to do something they wouldn't be willing to do themselves.

✍️ What approach would you take when making big decisions for England?

Any decision should be a solid one. That means that if you make a decision, it should hold up to 20 years of scrutiny. It's also important to consult with people affected by any decision, be it a change or a new program.

✍️ What are your priorities for England?

My platform has many points, but it does focus on cooperation and activity for England. I would honestly love to say at the end of my achievements that I made England a little bit better for everyone.

✍️ What do you think is the most challenging aspect of being a monarch and what would you do to overcome it?

The great desire to please people has been strong in many English leaders. However, you can not please everyone. All you can do is make the best, most solid decisions that you can in the limited time available. Again, if you can make a decision that you'll feel good about in 10 years, then you made a good one. That would be the goal.

✍️ Do you plan to have any civic engagement that would include people that are not in influential positions?

Yes! Most if not all of our activities will be open to the public!

✍️ With issues that have many tongues talking about the Court of Appeals and College of Heraldry, what do you recommend you can do to help accomplish a better system for both?

Oversight of the Court of Appeals is in the hands of Parliament and the HOL. Additionally, counties oversee their individual justices. As for COH, I am not aware of what issues you are referring to. Regardless, The Crown shouldn't be micromanaging organizations.

✍️ And because it’s known that thirteen might be a bad luck number, one last question. If you do not win the election, what do you propose to do to help accomplish what you say in your election campaign?

If I don't win, and I want to dive deeper into the activity issues, I can get involved through the HoL, or by contacting Parley. Any citizen can. We can all be involved if we really want to be.

I have asked Lord Cullan the same questions and wait for his answers to publish for you soon.

05/01/1470 Monarch Election Questions - Lord The Count



The third interview is with Lord The_count from Mercia.


✍️ Good day and Welcome to KAP. Would you tell the readers about yourself? Specifically, your full name, where you live and why you want to win this election for the monarch.

Greetings, dear Readers. I am The Count. I live on The Stage. I have a small theatre company in London, just outside the walls of the traditional City. I am at home, however, wherever there is a stage. Anywhere in the arts. Anywhere with drama. I want to win this election to become the Theatre Director of England—I mean the Monarch of England—because I wish to restore England to its former glories. England has been beset with droll, dull, over-acted and underperformed dramas. There is no joy, no light, no laughter, no creative energy, at all. I wish to change this—to bring the Theatre of England back to a place of joy, light and creativity in its drama and its life.

✍️ What skills and competencies should a monarch have to perform effectively?

Why, I am ever so glad you asked this question. You see, I am a “Theatre Agent Extraordinaire.” But in fact, although modesty forbids me to say, I am in fact “All Things Theatre Extraordinaire”, and this includes directing. A Theatre Director of England—I mean a Monarch—must provide support, constant supportive constructive support, to those in the Theatre Company—I mean the Kingdom. I can write marvellous plays, direct them, and hold casting calls open to all. I can help people learn their lines and applaud those that do. I can inspire stars to shine, and those that would be stars to find their place through learning from the stars. My own creative genius knows no boundaries. I can whisper from the wings and sing from the center of the stage. In short, I can provide a wide and flexible array of skills to help the Kingdom thrive.

✍️ Do you think you have those skills and competencies?

But of course, my dear. As a “Theatre Agent Extraordinaire” and also an “All Things Theatre Extraordinaire”(although modesty forbids me to say this) I have all of the skills and competencies to be a Director—I mean a Monarch—of England.

✍️ What does a typical day of a monarch look like?

Someone once famous has said or will say,

“My curse on plays

That have to be set up in fifty ways,

On the day's war with every knave and dolt,

Theatre business, management of men.”*

I think that this typifies the way in which past Monarchs have dealt with our Kingdom. But this is not at all how I feel, and I wish to bring a new view into our Theatre of England. Someone famous once said or will say “"Theater is a verb before it is a noun, an act before it is a place." As the Director –I mean Monarch of England—I would expect every day to be different. To be a feast of creativity, of the drama which arises in our very souls and in our very lives.


✍️ If your day has veered from your expected normal, how do you handle that?

I have no expected normal. I do not even know the meaning of either of those words. Expected and normal probably are what lead us to our present plight, of the droll, dull, strutting over-acted and under-performed drama that is our England. I hope expected and normal never to take residence on my stage.

✍️ Tell us how others describe you.

As a “Theatre Agent Extraordinaire” and also an “All Things Theatre Extraordinaire”(although modesty forbids me to say this).

✍️ If elected, how do you recommend you can motivate and direct others to be more productive and active in the kingdom?

By making England a fun and creative place to be. Which it currently is not. By hosting open casting calls. Calling for new playwrights. Cultivating new and hidden talent. By theatre productions large and small, singing and dancing as well as drama, in the City, in the towns, the villages and even out in nature’s amphitheaters.

✍️ What do you think of the phrase lead by example?

Dull, droll and predictable. It is not the role of a Director—I mean a Monarch—necessarily to always lead. Sometimes that is the role of the leading actor, who must be given the space to do their craft, with support from the Director—I mean Monarch—of England. At times, the best Director is invisible. What an odd production it would be for the Director to push the leading actor to the wings. A good Director—I mean Monarch—knows when to whisper from the wings, when to be quiet, and when to support and when to take charge. As a personage of the Theatre, I can do and have done all these things.

✍️ What approach would you take when making big decisions for England?

I would make important decisions in the open, for all to see, upon the stage. I would change this odd habit of making decisions with a group of people locked in an outhouse.

✍️ What are your priorities for England?

To make it a lively and fun place again, where the drama is for entertainment and not for sport.

✍️ What do you think is the most challenging aspect of being a monarch and what would you do to overcome it?

To win the trust and support of the people. This is always the hardest part of Theatre. To deliver, and assist in the delivery, of a fine Theatre, which is the pride of the Kingdom. I would hold open casting calls, I would invite new playwrights, I would encourage the Arts in all their forms, large and small, in all corners of our Kingdom. I would nurture new talent and support established talent.

✍️ Do you plan to have any civic engagement that would include people that are not in influential positions?

Yes, my open casting calls. My desire to create Theatre and Arts in the villages, towns and market places. To recognize we need all—the hands that make the stage scenery, the people who sew the costumes, as well as the actors and the writers and the painters and the singers.

✍️ With issues that have many tongues talking about the Court of Appeals and College of Heraldry, what do you recommend you can do to help accomplish a better system for both?

I would invite new scripts to be sent to me to study by any one interested, on how to make these Theatres perform better, and listen to suggestions of what sort of Arts and performance each is best geared to handle. I would do this in the open, for all to offer their views and thoughts and talents, and then would decide, with the consensus of our Kingdom, how best to move forward.

✍️ And because it’s known that thirteen might be a bad luck number, one last question. If you do not win the election, what do you propose to do to help accomplish what you say in your election campaign?

Why, to carry on, of course, to support Theatre and the Arts. As the saying goes, The show must go on!
