Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Such a pledge would be prima facie incredible, for the simple reason that if upholding it were possible, they would not need to issue New Punts.

You should not make obviously incredible threats or promises. It gains you nothing and makes people more likely to call upon you to make good on future threats and promises, which is almost always expensive.
