Cattala pull funding from Southern Europe
Government shows lack of faith in Eurozone

The New Year has started with a bang for investors, as the Cattalian Government's investment arm pulls out of funding all Southern European ventures, including Spanish banks and Italian assets. The news is expected to cause a slump on the S&P and the IBEX when markets re-open, and will lower the risk attached to Cattala's Government. The funding axe will save Cattala Royal Investment Fund (CRIF) an estimated £50 billion this year alone, and will further protect the Holy Regno's AAA rating, which was under threat last winter.
During the Greek crisis of 2010, many analysts feared that a run on the Sterlina would begin, due to Cattala and Rhodes' dependence on Greek and Eurozone trade. However since last summer the Government in Celeste has travelled across the AIN seeking investment, and has been widely praised for its efforts to reduce dependence on EU trading. Rhodes' economy narrowly avoided entering recession in 2009 and has rebounded strongly as trade with Arab nations increased in the middle quarters of last year. The mainland's economy was pumped with Government funds during the financial crisis, and Cattalian Govt debt rose by 12% over the course of the last quarter of 2008. Since then tax reforms and overseas investments have bought the debt under control and it is now falling again.

CRIF's former Chief Executive Marc Franci said that the surprise investment axe could "seriously damage" the Mediterranean economy, and shows a "shocking" lack of faith in the European market. He also said that it could affect the reputation of CRIF as an international investor. However he also said that, looking at the planned investments, going ahead with them would have been "even riskier".
A Government spokesperson denied that this was protectionism, and said that it was a "private matter" for the investment fund, which raises funding for both the Government and the Royal and Holy Family. A private hospital in Northern Portugal that had been under construction with CRIF funding will now be mothballed, along with a 28-acre industrial complex in the Irish Republic.

Atlantic Federation elects new President
Fears ripple across Europe as Elisian pledges to expand navy and reduce the Church's power

European leaders failed to hide their dismay as the pro-military Presidential candidate Sophia Elisian comprehensively won the Atlantic Federation's election last week. Many would have preferred to see Democrat Rafael Cardoso win, due to his policies of reducing the military size and the nuclear arsenal of the country. Sophia Elisian won over 70% of the vote, as her policies of military expansion, public service pay rises and investments in the transport network pleased the electorate.
The Cattalian Catholic Church was especially dismayed at the election result, as rough plans for a tour of the Veratlantian states had been arranged with the Democratic party, who support religious freedoms and allowing religious authorities to run for office. However it's expected that the Liberators Party won't allow the visit, because it is against religious involvement in the state. Senior figures within the Church also revealed that they fear legalising abortion and allowing gay marriage could cause a rift between citizens and their faiths. So far, Cattala's Government has remained silent on the matter of the election result, and it's been reported that neither the Royal and Holy Majesty or Lord Celestine have spoken to the new President.

Government "fuming" at Atlantic Federation
Relations threatened as Secolo's team rebuke Elisian's policies and the Church reveals an anti-Veratlantian stance

Tensions with the Atlantic Federation's new administration continued to rise on Wednesday as the fallout from the recent press conference continues to spread throughout Cattala's government. Hopes for a reconciliation between the pro-EDA Cattalian leadership and President Elisian's team were dashed when she publicly mocked the European Defence Alliance, claiming it was inefficient and not influential. This lead to quiet anger amongst the Defence and Foreign Ministries of Cattala, who have fully supported the project, and could wipe out the possibility of increased military trade between the Atlantic Federation and Cattala, as well as the construction of an expanded EDA that would include Elisian's nation.
But it was later comments that she made to reporters for this newspaper that led to a rapidly-planned meeting between the Divina Anima Della Chiesa, and the Royal and Holy Majesty. Elisian revealed her Government was "displeased" with the Church's interference in faith in Cattala, and during the interview became "aggressive" towards the national Church. A source close to the Divina Anima revealed that the Church saw the interview as a "clear sign of Elisian's anti-Catholic beliefs and her anti-Cattalian nature, which would not be tolerated". The Cattalian Church has apparently scrapped all plans for a tour of the Federation and future personal relations between the heads of states of both nations are at risk, as Queen Alexandra is the joint head of the Cattalian Catholic faith.
The Government has remained silent on the recent election result, but it's believed to have rebuked the anti-Cattalian policies. Lord Secolo was seen visiting the Veratlantian embassy yesterday, before exiting just ten minutes later. Daily Telegraph reporters and photographers were also confronted by extra security outside Lord Celestine's residence, and asked to leave. During a press conference about healthcare, ministers also refused to answer questions - a sign that the issue of the Atlantic Federation is causing a headache for the Government.

Cattala "frozen out" as international backlash continues
Cattalian Church becomes centre of criticism as a ruthless new face of Cattala is formed

Cattala has been seen as a strong, dependable and democratic nation that punched above its weight for many years now. The nation has been a leading member of the European Defence Alliance since its formation, and has been an influential member of the AIN since joining in summer last year. However in the past week, that reputation has been destroyed by the ongoing political dispute with the Atlantic Federation - which has now become a religious row. Nations across the globe have come out in support of the Veratlantian superpower, including Cattalian "allies" such as Ascadylea. However only a small number of nations have backed the small Mediterranean island that is standing up to the undisputed giant of the AIN. Lower Columbia has been the only country to assert it's support for the Conservative Government in Celeste.
But now the focus of the trans-Atlantic dispute has moved away from the initial comments by President Elisian, and are now focused on her ongoing battle against the Church. The new President of the Atlantic Federation caused major controversy by claiming that the Cattalian Catholic Church controls the Government. A press conference by Lord Celestine, the first since this major dispute began, is expected this weekend, in which the leader of the Cattolica Conservatori party will address the allegations surrounding his party.
The Daily Telegraph will be exclusively publishing the international edition of the conference.

Government "could crumble" as crisis continues
Economy and Govt ratings taking major hits as left-wing nationalists take lead in the polls

Fears of an economic collapse have returned as the diplomatic crisis with the Atlantic Federation led to major falls on the Jennai Stock Exchange and in the currency markets on Friday. Stocks fell by 5.9% on Friday alone, ending a torrid week for the markets in Cattala. Shares had reached a four-year high at the start of the week, but as the Atlantic Federation's new President showed her anti-Cattalian side, stock markets fell by a startling 16% by end of trading on Friday - with an 11% fall expected for next week amid further falls in the Sterlina on international markets.
With the markets taking a beating, the Government was hoping for better signs in the poll ratings, which have consistently shown 50% support for the Government, a record high coming into an election year. However today's poll readings, by IPSOS Mori for the Daily Telegraph, reveal that the public is also turning against the Government. The polls, which can be seen below, show a stunning rise in support for the left-wing nationalist Il Popolo party, led by socialist Dr Rohan Viscoti. Viscoti replied to the news of his rise in popularity by calling it a "sign that Cattala wants to stand up for her Church and for her people" and that Cattala "should not be pushed around" by President Elisian. Viscoti also predicted that the Government "could crumble" within weeks if the "attacks on sovereignty" by Veratlantia continues.
The Government and the Democratic party both lost a sharp amount of support - the DP has supported further economic integration with the Atlantic Federation in the past. The last time Il Popolo was front runner in the polls was 1996, when it won a second term in Government.


Poll Ratings

Il Popolo 42% (Up 20%)
Cattolica Conservatori: 36% (Down 14%)
Democratic Party: 18% (Down 6%)

Secolo fights off rebellion as polls continue to plunge
Backbenchers launch attack on Govt as rising support for Il Popolo causes panic in Alder Hill

The Government and the Democratic party continued to lose support this week as another poll out in the Daily Telegraph revealed that Il Popolo's surprise success since the diplomatic crisis was not a one-off; the socialist party's support has risen again to a record level, not achieved since 1998. The Democratic Party suffered the most this time, with support falling into single figures for the first time since 1991. The leader of the Opposition, Dominic Greenwood, is under increasing pressure from both the public and his party since he was forced to withdraw support for Veratlantia last week. Rumours of a no confidence vote in the left-wing leader has been rife for weeks, as he has failed to build support since taking control of his party, despite Government support falling in recent months.
However Lord Secolo faces an even harsher reception from his party - historically the more aggressive with its leaders - as backbenchers and committee members threaten to block all future Government bills unless he takes a stronger stance with the overseas critics. Last week the Government lost 14% of its support after failing to respond to claims of anti-Cattalian remarks made by the President of the Atlantic Federation. Internal critics believe that if he manages to "muck up" another diplomatic spat, then he may face increasing pressure to resign from inside the party.


Poll Ratings

Il Popolo 51% (Up 11%)
Cattolica Conservatori: 34% (Down 2%)
Democratic Party: 9% (Down 9%)

Queen Alexandra taken to hospital
"Frail" monarch has been ill "for over a week"

Her Royal and Holy Majesty, Queen Alexandra, has been taken to hospital tonight following her return from the Nogovicka Ball. The Queen was reportedly "frail and ill" during the event, although Government sources have said that she had been "under the weather" prior to the trip to Hiigara. The Celeste Metropolitan Hospital has been partially closed due to her presence, with royal security and armed police surrounding the medical facility. Prince Luke of Rhodes has visited his wife in the hospital, and at 9pm local time tonight, doctors said that she was "stable" and "remaining positive", but did not mention what she had been diagnosed with.

The Daily Telegraph broke the story during the Ball, reporting that the Queen had left early due to her illness, before flying back to Celeste that same evening.

Due to security concerns, no members of the Karasem parliament are permitted to land in the Royal and Holy Kingdom of Cattala.

(If a plane carrying Karasem politicians did attempt to fly over Cattala, it would be escorted out of our air zone by fighter jets.)

Syldavia "blackmailed" Cattala into withdrawing from court case
Human rights activists planning protests across AIN following collapse of case

Human rights groups are planning mass demonstrations across the AIN after revelations about the exchange of terror suspects between Syldavia and Cattala were revealed. Leaks to the media revealed that Cattala was forced to withdraw from the prosecution of the court case against the Socialist Republic's Government and special services as part of an agreement to extradite terrorists from the former Soviet nation to the Holy Regno. Government and Ministry of Justice bosses were reportedly in talks throughout the night last week deliberating the situation, and eventually decided to agree to the terms provided by Syldavia - the terrorists would be handed over in exchange for Cattala abandoning its critical line against the nation which still uses firing squads and shares intelligence with North Korea.
International human rights groups released press statements informing the world of their plans to "voice their opposition" to the "clear blackmail and bribery" of the Cattalian Government. The CEO of Jennai-based charity Unite for Rights demanded an inquiry into the transfer deal with Syldavia and accused the Secolo administration of becoming an "easy target" for foreign governments and "shady business deals".
Dr Alexandra Inuata told RMi News that "Cattala is now as corrupt as an Arab state or a dodgy African dictatorship. Our people will suffer and our protection will become targeted and vulnerable. We will fight this insanity."

Queen Alexandra returns to Rhodes
Republicans squirm as Royal Family relocate to Rhodos despite small scale protests

Queen Alexandra and Prince Luke of Rhodes have returned to the king consort's home province for the first time since Rhodes' National Parliament was formally closed, and replaced with an Assembly. Republicans organised protests outside the royal palace, however only one event went ahead due to low turn out. The Queen recently spent three days in hospital, following what was reportedly appendicitis, although the Imperial Office has not confirmed nor denied this. According to palace sources, she is still "in recovery" and "resting". The trip is monumental due to the fact this is the only occasion in history when the Cattalian Crown has flown above Rhodes' Government buildings instead of the island's traditional flag. Republican leaders have criticised the move, claiming it is "the return of imperialism and the crushing of sovereignty". The Royal Children remain in Celeste, meaning that the regal Coat of Arms are flying over both Celeste and Rhodos.

Shots fired as Cattala defies Hiigaran demands
Cattala roars again as Amadeus' historic flag is flown above Jennai's central square

Cattala has once again ignored the Hiigaran demands and has further risked isolating itself from the international community by threatening to respond militarily against the aggressive Confederacy. Around lunchtime today shots were fired into the air by Cattalian soldiers and Jennai's Governor's residence flew the flag of Amadeus, who resisted an invasion by Italian forces two hundred years ago. Rhodos-based fighter jets continued to fly over the current home of Queen Alexandra, as seven more frigates left Celeste heading towards regional waters between Jennai and Ionia. They are also expected to be joined by a small group of Lower Columbian ships, which have been under joint command from Celeste and Astoria since Wednesday.

More on the Cattala-Hiigara Crisis is available at telegraph.cat, and under the Cattala-Hiigara Crisis thread at the AIN forums.

Embassies closed as Cattala begins Foreign Ministry reform
Oksainian embassy becomes the first casualty of Government's "cruel" foreign relations cull

The Government has formally begun it's closure of 12 international embassies, including those of three AIN nations. The controversial announcement of the closures last month led to criticism from the opposition, who claim that it is "cruel" and "unwarranted" to close these embassies. The Foreign Minister, Lance Cottlesely, claimed that the embassy axe was part of a "reformation of our international relations". Charities have also joined the opposition to the cull, claiming that nations where human rights and stability are "ignored and forgotten". The closure of the embassies, including those in Brussels, Oksaine, Hiigara, Linktoria and the minor embassy in Lycanthia, means that over 900 people will lose their jobs and over £40 million a year.
The Foreign Ministry is expected to make further cutbacks in it's foreign aids bill to all AIN nations as well, and sources at the Ministry have suggested that this may include a less lenient stance on rogue states.

NMS Regina

NMS Regina returns triumphantly to West Jennai
Six Month tour included visits to Ethiopia, Calaré, Antarctic and Eastern Russia

A celebratory welcome greeted the exhausted crew of NMS Regina this Sunday, when the frigate made a glorious entrance to the infamous West Jennai Port, the scene of a Cold War-style crisis last month. The Protettorato class ship traversed the world's most dangerous waters, and fought off pirates in the Indian Ocean in January. It also became the first vessel to dock in the new Marino Salvatori harbour in Calaré during its tour of Oceania, which included a visit to the Antarctic for a research project alongside Arcacian scientific vessels. But by far the most controversial areas of its tour was a visit to Syldavia and Eastern Russia during the court case crisis several months ago. Live images of the vessel entering Syldavian waters were beamed across Alder Hill, during a concerning night that some believed could have ended in conflict.
The sight of a Cattalian warship entering the West Jennai harbour, where bullet holes remind the dockers of the tense war of words that nearly led to a battle between Hiigara and a strongly-supported Cattalian force. One docker reminded us of the conflict by pointing out the the Lower Columbian aircraft carrier that remains docked out in the Ionian Sea, a symbol of the remaining distrust between Cattala and Hiigara.

The return of the Regina may be a reason to celebrate the hard work of the Marino, but is also a reminder of the threats that Cattala still has to face.

Ministry of Transport Unveils Plans for Railway Review
Ferrovie faces major reform over a five year period after Government launches long-awaited review


Logo of the review

The Government has finally begun it's planned review of the railway services run in Cattala, more than three years later than initially planned. The Global Recession prevented the wide-ranging review from going ahead in 2008, and a further delay in late 2010 led to it being pushed towards the end of the Parliamentary season. The review could see an overhaul of the public transport sector, and could spell the beginning of 20 years of construction on the railway lines, on a scale which hasn't been seen since the 19th century. Analysts have predicted that the review will be scheduled into four main parts, most of which have already been confirmed and planned by Ferovie. The actual report will be released in a matter of months.

The construction of Cattala's first Pandelino Speed line, between Jennai, Almae and Cape Point, would be commenced three years earlier than planned, with an extra £40m cash injection into the project, which would also see a further extension planned to Seina by 2025. Pandelino trains travel at 35mph faster than the traditional trains, meaning that the time to reach Cape Point could be cut by a third.
A second Pandelino Speed line, between Seina and Calora, will also be planned by 2017, with construction to begin by 2022.

The planning stage of the nation's first High Speed line would be brought forward by ten years, to 2015. Any future high speed line would replace the current Inter-City line that links Calora, Celeste and Jennai. A planned bridge connection to Sicily's HSR network would be decided in 2016.

The electrification of all of the nation's railway lines would be completed by 2018, two years earlier than initially expected. Speeds on all provincial lines will be increased to 105mph, and on national lines speeds will be raised to 110mph.
A general £90m investment will be provided to Ferrovie for the efficiency and maintenance upgrades to increase the speeds, and the funding will also safeguard all rural lines and lead to an increase in services and improvements to the railway lines over a five year period.
