Cives Caledoniae affati sunt. The Scottish people have spoken.

Hodie cognoscemus quid populus Caledoniae censent. ‘Non’ electo, in Regno Coniuncto manere volunt. Octaginta quinque per centum cives suffragia tulerunt, quinquaginta quinque per centum electores “non” dixerunt. Abhinc decem dies res sic anceps videbatur ut Minister Primus Cameron pavore afflictus promitteret potestatem majorem reipublicae Caledoniae traditam iri, si cives ‘non’ eligant. Feliciter Gordon Brown orationem suavissimam aptissimamque dixit in quo Regnum Coniunctum ferventer laudabant.

Sed hodie mane Alex Salmond ab spe destitutus populi affatus est: populum Caledoniae eligisse, nunc Cameroni esse promissa servanda.

Necesse est nobis, ut duces Angliae dicunt, Senatum Londinii reficere ut legati Caledonienses non res Anglias disceptare possint.

Today we know what the people of Scotland think. They voted ‘no’ and want to stay in the United Kingdom. Eighty five per cent of the electorate voted, fifty five per cent of the voters said ‘no’. Ten days ago the outcome seemed so doubtful that Prime Minister Cameron panicked and promised that more power would be handed to the Scottish Government if the voters chose ‘no’.

Fortunately Gordon Brown gave a brilliant and persuasive speech in which he powerfully endorsed the Union. But this morning a disappointed Alex Salmond addressed the people. He said that the Scottish peopl had chosen; now Cameron would have to keep his promises. The political leaders in England say that we need to reform the Westminster Parliament so that the Scottish MPs cannot influence English business.

Respublica Caledoniensibus eligenda. Scotland must decide.

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.

Comitia Crimeana: Crimean Referendum

Hodie Crimeā comitia aguntur.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-26598832

Populum oportet delegere res publicas huius loci Ukranei, utrum imperium Russiae donētur an res publicanae fiant Crimeanae. Non licet Crimeam in imperio Ukraneo permanere quam Putinus, dictator Russicus, non patiatur quod classis Russica portu Sevastapolis utetur. In his terris sunt limites incerti et mutabiles. Abhinc sexaginta annos Crimeae Russia imperabat. Abhinc viginti quinque annos Ukraneus est libertus, sed res publicae ibi minime iuste agentur. Nationes Europeae Americanaeque commotae sunt quae res ancipites timeant. Bellum eveniat ? plurimi pacem desiderunt sed res sunt periculosae.

Today in Crimea a vote is taking place. The people have to decide the constitution of this part of the Ukraine, whether rule should be handed to the Russians or whether  Crimea should be an independent state. Crimea is not being allowed to stay part of the Ukraine, which the Russian dictator Putin cannot accept because the Russian fleet uses the port of Sevastapol. In this region borders are uncertain and changeable. Sixty years ago Russia ruled Crimea. For twenty five years Ukraine has ben independent, but the state has been badly run. The nations of Europe and America are worried because things are on a knife edge. Will there be a war? Most people want peace but it’s a dangerous situation.
