Number 10: Pelham-Holles Redux

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

July VIIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

The first person to be given a chance at a second term as PM is The Right Honourable The Viscount Haughton His Grace The Duke The Lord The Marquess Baron Baronet Earl Thomas Pelham-Holles. Of course in the parliamentary counting system he is on his IInd term as IVth (4th) Prime Minister. Whereas in a "Republic" like the US of A, President Grover Cleveland, Democratic-New York was XXIInd (22nd) & XXIVth (24th) President, not XXIInd Prez for II non-consecutive terms. Which means that President Donald Trump, Republican-New York is the XLVth (45th) US Prez, but only the XLIVth (44th) person to hold the office.

In this term, Tommy focused on good governance. He formed an alliance with William Pitt or "Pitt The Elder", a political enemy & leader of the Patriot Whigs. They made things work to prevent government from stalling completely over, which was especially important with the Seven Years War raging on it was better to work as a team for the nation. Despite having to conduct government from the House Of Lords Chamber since he wasn't an MP, Tom wanted to try & conduct a government without (or with as little corruption as possible.)

"I shall not...think the demands of the people a rule of conduct, nor shall I ever fear to incur their resentment in the prosecution of their interest. I shall never flatter their passions to obtain their favour, or gratify their revenge for fear of their contempt."

IVth Prime Minister (II),

Rory
