Rathlyn, HB, May 2 – An outspoken Sabioveronese dissident has slammed Juclandian socialism and has voiced his support for Sirocco’s anti-communist measures in a strange twist on the near-constant ideological battles in the MicroWiki community. News broke early this morning in the Siv Photograph, Sabia and Verona’s predominant news source, of plush toy Hans Starlynn’s vocal opposition to May Day celebrations in the Sabioveronese city of Salisse. Starlynn reportedly came to attention by shouting anti-Juclandian and anti-socialist statements to a crowd in the municipality of Caenia, widely viewed as the centre of Sabioveronese conservatism. The Phonograph reported Starlynn as shouting … Continue reading Plight of pro-Sirocco Sabioveronese dissident reaches Rathlyn
As a monumental year for the micronational community draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on what hit the headlines in 2012. In a year that saw massive cultural growth in Sirocco, the rise and fall of nations and tragedies and successes alike, the Sirocco Times presents its third Year in Review, and what a year it’s been! January Sirocco 2012 started in a strange fashion for Sirocco – it did it twice. Decreed as such a good year by Premier Daniel Anderson, 2011 returned at 10:45pm on January 1/December 31 before changing to January 2 at midnight. There was widespread shock … Continue reading 2012: The Year in Review
Alston, NCD, Dec 21 – The Siroccan government has been left scratching its head after allegations by a Melbourne man that the nation has broken British Commonwealth laws despite not having any link with it. Melburnian Lawrence Whiting has accused the government of illegally appointing Minister of Culture Elizabeth Pountney to her role in 2010 as she was “under age” and therefore in contravention of British law. He went on to state that: “You are a Commonwealth, and as you have stated you no specific law stating the age that a person may become a minister, as such the law … Continue reading Melburnian man threatens to take Sirocco to Privy Council, government baffled
Alston, NCD, Apr 2 – April Fools! Admit it, we got you good. A socialist party for Sirocco, we knew it’d get you! So why did we do it? We were looking for a great joke to pull on the community besides MicroWiki’s transformation to BoratWiki today. After giving thought to changing Sirocco’s flag, creating some kind of chaos and even renaming the National Capital District to Chatgo (rearrange the letters), but we decided that a socialist party in a micronation that’s anything but would have been funniest. Of course, we threw in some ‘gives’, and eagle-eyed readers would have realised … Continue reading Gotcha!
Alston, NCD, Feb 5 – Sirocco will join in Waitangi Day protests tomorrow and demand the construction of more motorways in New Zealand. Dubbed “Demand Improvement Day”, the protests will coincide with the protests at Waitangi tomorrow, not far from Alston itself. The aim of the protests is to parody the angry protests at Waitangi each year while protesting a tongue-in-cheek issue. Premier Daniel Anderson last night decided that Sirocco would protest the current northern terminus of Auckland’s Northern Motorway at Puhoi. “It’s a disgrace that the motorway currently ends there. Warkworth, Wellsford and Whangarei all need this motorway, and when … Continue reading Sirocco to protest lack of motorways
