No one stands up leaving Ambassador Burton as the sole dissenting voice.
"Exactly as I thought there is no dissatisfaction with how I've run the Federation nor should there be it's just the sole ranting of a man who wants my job and is trying his hardest manufacturing problems and create the impression of a rebellion about to rise up and overthrow me and throw the entire Federation into chaos."
“You are wrong, Mr President and that you can’t see what’s wrong is all the more reason why you should stand down and let someone else take the job.”
“As to my colleagues, we agreed beforehand that I would be the one to stand and address you, as I am the one who wants to take your place, so it was natural that I am the one to challenge you.”
“As to why they're not keen to stand up and be counted, that’s easy fear of reprisals should this all fail, they're worried that angering you may well mean you taking revenge against them in trade agreements or in any number of other political ways."
“I love the way you say someone else should take over when clearly you mean you should be that someone and I've already seen that whoever you have backing you in private clearly isn't going to do it in public. Because you say of fears of retaliation that are completely ridiculous, so it's just you a political opportunist out to get my job.”
“Well, I tell you what you want it so badly when my term expires, I won't stand in your way and if you get enough support you’ll get what you want, how does that sound now maybe we can all get back to work.”
“You keep harping on the fact I want to be Federation President like it’s a bad thing, believing you’ll convince the other assembly members in the hope it will deflect attention away from your failings.”
“It’s not a bad thing to want the position it shows after years of neglect and apathy someone who sees what a privilege being elected to the office of Federation President is. Willing and even eager to take on the responsibilities of the role.”
“As for your offer, I'll take you up on it because I believe your term is going to end a lot sooner than you think."
