Die quinto suffragatoribus Caledoniae respublica referetur. Populis cernendum erit sive in Regno Coniuncto manendum sive Calendoniae independenti favendum. Quid homines delectet? Menses complures consulti periti dicebant Caledonienses plerumque ‘non’ electuros esse, id est, Regni Coniuncti fauturos. Sed nuper numerus fautorium Caledoniae independentis crescet et disceptatio commota irataque fit. Fautores Regni Conjuncti adseverant Caledonia sine Anglia vectigalibus et negotationibus magnis et argentariis et ludis internationalibus carebunt, sed fautores Caledoniae independentis argumenta adnegant quod, ut dicunt, copiae petrolei eis sunt. Prima occasio erit in qua homines annos sedecim nati suffragium ferre poterint. Res sunt magni negotii, ferentes eventum ancipitem.
In four days’ time the voters of Scotland will vote on their government. The people will have to decide if they should stay in the United Kingdom, or if they want an independent Scotland. What will the people prefer? For many month the seasoned commentators have been saying that the Scots will mostly vote ‘no’, that is in favour of the United Kingdom. But recently the number of supporters of an independent Scotland had grown and the debate has become heated and angry. The supporters of the United Kingdom assert that Scotland without England will be short of tax income, of large businesses, of banks and of international sporting events, but the supporters of Scottish independence reject these claims because, they say, they have a large amount of oil. This will be the first chance for sixteen year olds to vote. It is a very important event with an uncertain outcome.
