Tlanslation: Svyatoslav Albireo

— What do you mean … «adopted a package of bills»? — hissed the Emperor. — I had to isolate politically troubled contingent from society and reassure the people, but I wasn’t going to create Bills. Moreover, on a package of Bills! When I agreed to be drawn into this adventure with a parliamentary monarchy, what the order was?

— There were three conditions, Your Majesty. Make sure there won’t be a fraction, which would have more than a third of seats … Done, in the best possible way.

— Go on.

— Every six months, someone must threat to leave the coalition or claim the vote of non-confidence on the Government …

— We are ok with it, I know.

— At least half of the deputies must be at least twice divorced or unmarried for two years and more … Here are the statistics, we have fifty-seven percent of these.

— What a hell happened, and people, most of whom is not able to get along even with one person, could arrange something?

— Your Majesty, the package concerns parliamentary privileges. Increased salary, free travel, pension, state park … Here, look.

The Emperor scanned the list:

— Ah … Okay, then.

He put the signature in the proper place, and after a moment of reflection spoke again:

— They cost me more and more. Perhaps, I should cut funds for bribery. Who has the highest rates? Speaker? Arrange him a corruption scandal and the resignation with the deprivation of all benefits … Even more: every six months, identify the person who takes the most of all, and arrange the same.
