"Yes," Munkus replied to Quill, flicking out a claw and opening the bottle of Irn Bru, shearing the cap clean off and flicking it aside into a garbage can twenty five feet away, good for three points. And all of it was international {and possibly intergalacitic} television. "I am quite sure they will. But I assure you, the taxpayers will not be paying anything to fund this project. They have other projects to worry about. Among other things the entire eastern side of the city is hundreds of meters under water as it is."

He took a long gulp of the caffine before replying to Winne, "As far as I am aware, the homeless are the people with the skills, they know how to do things, but nobody will hire people with skill. I went to them before coming here to file the motion for traffic reform. For all you know you got laid off workers who actually built this place before it is as you see it now."

"Who are you calling short tempered lady ?" Munkus then eyed Quill carefully, Yeah, all mouth no respect, typical, "I can easily see the headlines already, Yeah, they read, 'Reporter given the boot from conference', how'd you like to read that on tomorrows paper ?" Somehow Munkus actually found himself liking the guy that kept his mouth shut the most, Malcom Piers. He raised his bottle of Irn Bru in a toast to Malcom.

"Is that a call for a voter poll?" Winne whispered to someone else on a partnered station. Was there really going to be a text poll, to see if Quill would oppose Munkus.

"Munkus, the homeless will rebuild the city, despite being responsible for it's current state?"

"Keep those cameras rolling, keep them rolling." He even motioned for one camera to follow Winne's movements as he replied to Malcom with two other cameras focused on him, "As far as I am aware there wont be any tax hikes." He took a sip from the three litre bottle, "Any more questions ?" Maybe he should also mention the lack of service at several well known bars too ?

When Quill never stopped even at the other reporters questions to her, Munkus seemed slightly crest fallen, but it was all for show as he really didn't care that much about it, after all the person tried to get him to spill the beans when there were no beans to spill, after all he'd just filed the motion. So there was not much going on. Things like that took a while to get done. At least the people were informed.

Munkus looked thoughtful before he replied to Winne's question, "I do not think it is the homeless that put the city into the sorry state its now in. The peopel they handed it over to however, that's a whole different matter entirely. I look at some of these folks on the street sleeping in old broken undrivable cars and wrecks, and One tells me he used to be a bar tender, now replaced by a stinkin' robot. Another said he was a cook, now replaced by a demon or some such skat. So you tell me, who put the city in the state its in, was it the homeless, or the people that made the homeless, homeless ?"

It was a valid question for sure. That and well loaded too.

"Can someone at the station set up that poll! Quickly please!" Malcom was grinning ear to ear, waving at cameras and pushing to get closer to Munkus.

The crowd had gone wild at Winne's comment.

"Munkus!" He shouted over the fray, "Do you have a closing statement?"

"That depends Mr Piers, Ya got a case I can handle ?" Munkus asked, another perfectly loaded question. he stepped away from the podium, left paw still held the capless three litre bottle of Irn Brum, he stepped from the podium and moved closer to Malcom, unforunatly so did sixy nine other microphones, tap recorders and what looked like a Biscoti on steriods were shoved in his face, Flashbulbs went off all around him. One person even called out wanting to be the mother of his kids, which he replied that was an impossiblity due to the fact that he was a cat and she was a human.

Good Afternoon TerraCast, this is Quill reporting from outside the Government Centre where i have been one of the lucky few invited to a press conference introducing the idea of Traffic reforms into Wing City.

The reforms were introduced to the press by one Munkus, very cooly and calmly, describing the problems with unattended cars of poor or little use littering our streets. I read into this and it seems these proposals may not have been overly thought out properly and may have simply been based on a personal grudge between Munkus himself and a civillian who suffered damage to their car.

Now aside from damaging civillian vehicles Munkus seemed to also inhibit knowledge to the public. After some very well thought up questions by other press members which i shall discuss further later in this broadcast, Munkus's temper seemed to get the better of him.

One reporter asked on behalf of civillian rights, 'What do you propose to do with the overwhelming amount of abandoned cars? Surely the homeless population of wing city has been putting them to good use?'

Munkus then acknowledged that people were in fact, living in these vehicles but then immideately dismissed any personal morals or ethics regarding civillian safety or wellbeing by saying...

' There is a location outside of town from what I heard that seeks junk, be it scrap metal or abandoned cars. As far as I am aware there have been a few cleaner areas of the city due to that same company doing the collections.'

Could this be another attempt at smiting the people of Wing City for his own personal gain? well we don't know, no current evidence stands that suggests he has anything against the homeless civillians of the city, but this reporter has no doubt that it would be little stretch of the imagination to suggest such events occured.

Another reporter then questioned the ticketing system and asked what plans to revamp this system Munkus had placed into the proposal, to which he answered. 'An audit was not particularly mentioned or requested.'

To this reporter the words 'not particularly' used in a press conference does not fill a city with a sense of hope. The only way i personally can look at this is that Munkus's proposals may include an axing of jobs in the police department and that the words 'not particularly' were a failed attempt at a cover up. But ill leave you as the viewers to come to your own opinions.

Then yours truly stepped up to ask about the effect this proposal would have on taxpayers who already pay a large chunk of their salaries to fund these kinds of projects. The question was answered by Munkus stating that tax payers would not be affected.

Many viewers right now must be thinking about how then this must be a good thing, but i saw through these persuasive layers and my suspicions were confirmed after a small length of the conference elapsed.

After hearing that the homeless were to be relocated, and in wanting to ensure the rights for civillians were upheld,Winne, also a reporter for TerraCast asked, 'Relocated to where?'

Munkus then continued and i quote '...the new apartment complex, which as I understand it, is constructed for the Homeless directly to have a home free of charge.'

In the interest of taxpayers, i found a fatal flaw in Munkus's proposal. They plan to kick homeless people off the streets into brand new living accomodation, where they wont be charged a penny. However the previous stated quote saying taxpayers wont be affected its rendered incoherent as who will be paying for the increased stress on these 'free apartments' thats right THE TAXPAYERS!

Towards the end of the conference and with the press's questions ringing around his ears, Munkus seemed to loose his temper ever so slightly and even made a direct threat at myself saying...'I can easily see the headlines already, Yeah, they read, 'Reporter given the boot from conference', how'd you like to read that on tomorrows paper ?' Bad form for someone who wishes to gain the publics interest in his proposals dont you think?

A recent http://www.roleplaygateway.com/wing-city-residency-census-t80154.htmlCensus has been produced for civillians that may help summarise and create evidence for the proposals. Please take part when you have a spare minute.

After a heated end to the press conference i found myself asking, is this the kind of person i want making decisions that not only affects the population of wing city, but the city i have come to know and love.

This is Quill reportng from outside the government centre saying Speak up, and have your say!
