"Bricks's foreign policy is flawed and ill-advised at the present time," declared David. "In the past, we have criticized her as being a weak leader, and for good reason, because now is not the time to stand up to Legoland. Bricks's judgement is clearly flawed."
Everyone in the Republic knows that Bricks's recent statements have antagonized the military junta ruling Legoland, but the nation is divided.
The Conservative Party (CP), long a supporter of tough measures against other countries, has backed off its rhetoric, most likely in anticipation of the presidential election this fall. If the party can convince enough voters that Bricks and the Liberal Democrats are making major errors, the CP stands to gain the presidency and a majority in Parliament.
The CP's standard-bearer, Francis David, added that harrassing the military-led government of Legoland would only lead to further trouble down the road.
"The Empire of Legoland is a major power in the Lego world, and having just entered the international community, it is not wise for us to challenge their government. The issue of national sovereignty is critical to consider. To my knowledge, there are no large-scale problems occurring as a result of the new regime, and we need to keep out," he said.
