Kevin: Currently Siemens AG Desiro class trains are used. In the InterCity lines it's the Class 450 trains that are used, whilst in the rest of Cattala it's the Class 444 locamotives that are used.
The Pendelino lines will run the Class 390 Pendelino train sets.

Dryan: Planning will begin in 2017, with construction commencing in 2022. The lines will be reconstructed and several sections of the lines will be decommissioned and replaced with a faster section elsewhere. It will cost a lot of money and will take a while to be planned due to the fact that many villages may be affected by the loss of train services and the closure of railway stations too. The time plan is realistic for how it would actually happen in reality.

Government and capitalists cautious as Il Popolo remains strong
The Doctor's party holds back Secolo's recovery, and the economy says business leaders

The Government's political fightback has stalled once again, as rising inflation and fuel prices dampen the support of Lord Secolo's party. Despite rising to a respectable 43% in the latest Daily Telegraph poll, the Cattolica Conservatori's remain behind the socialist party, led Dr Rohan Viscoti. Il Popolo has remained the most popular party after a surge in their support in January. The anti-capitalist rhetoric adopted by Viscoti has spread concern in Jennai, where economists fear that an Il Popolo victory in the next election could end the economic recovery, and push Cattala back into recession.

Despite facing off a rebellion from backbenchers during the diplomatic spat with Veratlantia, Secolo hasn't taken the fight to Viscoti, since the Government has had to deal with sharply rising inflation and fuel prices. "The Doctor has a small party in parliamentary terms, since Il Popolo struggled at the last election. If the support for his party continues though, you can bet that the conservatives will try to force Secolo to do something about the popularity of Il Popolo. The Democratic party may have withered and died for now, but if Viscoti remains strong then the Government won't have an easy election. But for Lord Celestine himself, the situation is much more rosy now." said RMi News' political editor.


Poll Ratings

Il Popolo 44% (Down 7%)
Cattolica Conservatori: 43% (Up 9%)
Democratic Party: 11% (Up 2%)

Ainero comes into usage today
From £ to ₴: The beginning of the end for our national currency

The Ainero Act of 2010 comes into effect from today, with all national banks and cash machines now dispensing ₴'s and £'s, as the sterlina is pegged to a currency for the first time in 59 years. The introduction of the Ainero will begin the 6-month transfer to the union's largest currency market, which is currently in circulation in other European nations such as Fairview. The Government has supported the Ainero Act since it's incarnation last summer, and Lord Monete spoke yesterday in Parliament. "Tomorrow sees the introduction of a new currency for Cattala. The Ainero is one of the strongest global currencies, and will open our economy to further trade with stable, successful and rapidly-growing economies, as well as simplifying our trading with the Eurozone and the United States. The sterlina was initially introduced as a temporary currency in the 1940s. Now, nearly 70 years on, we can close this chapter of our post-war reconstruction and look to the future with pride; we have kept our sovereignty and fiscal independence, but still have the greatest opportunity in any free market union." Analysts have predicted that the phasing in of the Ainero, and eventual disestablishment of the sterlina, will add 0.6% to Cattala's annual economic growth for the next 5 years, and will protect Cattala from the eurozone crisis and still allow the Bank of Cattala to keep its independence.

Rhodes granted devolution
National and Rhodos Parliaments approve Hellenic Act

The two most powerful parliaments in Cattala - the National Parliament in Celeste and Provincial Parliament in Rhodos - today approved the Hellenic Act of 2011, which grants the Province of Rhodes greater powers over it's education, healthcare and general expenditure on it's island. The amount of taxation from Rhodians that goes to the provincial government will rise from the current 30%, to 60%. The official title of the province is also going to change, as Rhodes will become the 'Hellenic Principality of Rodi', and a second official title for Cattala will be created, for use when the matter at hand affects Rhodos' devolved matters.

"Devolution will grant Rhodes a greater identity as part of our union, and is another step on the path to linking the mainland and our eastern province." Claimed the head of the Rhodos Parliament, Alec Hellepoli. However the Rhodes Republican Party criticised the move, saying that it "doesn't go far enough" and allows "Celeste to tighten it's grip on Rhodes for the long-term". The general public in Rhodes have been accepting of the devolution movement, and the latest polls have shown that 68% of the Rhodos public support the union with Cattala - a rise of 9% on last month. Support for republicans and the secession movement has fallen below 20%.

Lord Secolo is preparing for an August election
Government sources say Parliament will be dissolved by the summer break

Sources close to the Solium have told the Daily Telegraph that Anthony Secolo is preparing to announce the election will be held in August, as his four-year term as Lord Celestine begins to come to a close. Both Lord Winnocai and Lord Dannici, the previous Lord Celestine's, managed to win second terms, but resigned two years into their tenureships due to ill health and a vote of no confidence, respectively. In today's Regina poll for the Daily Telegraph, Secolo's main rivals, the authoritarian Il Popolo party, have seen support slide once again, to 38%. Just a matter of weeks ago the party commanded support of over 50%. However Secolo has also lost out to the Democratic Party this week, with his poll rating falling to 38% as well. The resurgent Democratic Party, who reached single digit popularity two months ago, have now climbed to 20% for the first time since before Christmas. This election is likely to be very close. But a lot will happen before then.

Provinces predicting "secure" harvest
Best crop outlook for three years despite Europe suffering drought

Cattala's provincial governments have all revised up their harvest yield rates for this year, despite much of Europe suffering from severe summer droughts. Lessito and Monte Calida, the two key agricultural provinces, have both raised their outlooks to "secure", the highest rating since 2007. This upgrade in harvest expectations comes as central and northern Europe is facing some of the worst pre-summer droughts in decades, with some regions of Germany only receiving 5% of their average rainfall level in April and May. " Cattala really has scraped through bad droughts in recent years, and this year the eastern provinces, where most of the output is focused, have been incredibly successful. We've seen steady rainfall and short periods of dry weather, which has given us a very stable Spring here in Ontano." said the head of the Lessito Agricultural Union, the largest and most powerful farmer's organisation in Cattala. "We've been very lucky this year. We are also expecting higher prices, unfortunately thanks to bad harvests elsewhere, which will boost our businesses no end."
However despite the optimistic mood amongst farmers, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) has warned that consumers will be facing higher prices for their food this winter, especially staple crops such as and wheat. "The price of pasta, bread and maize is expected to rise sharply this year, which will affect consumer spending. This increase in local harvest production is welcome, but the impacts of drought elsewhere will be obvious in the price of food this winter." said a MARA spokesperson.

The cost of crops is going to rise regardless of imports or exports, because the price of grain and things on the international markets has risen so sharply. Therefore farmers are selling crops at the higher prices that the markets dictate, and then the bakeries are buying the end product at a higher price as well.

Lord Anthony Secolo announcing the election at a dinner today

Secolo announces August election
Parliament will be dissolved on 20th July

Lord Celestine announced today at a special gala in Jennai that the 2011 election will take place this August, with Parliament being dissolved on the 20th July. The revelation came amid growing rumours that Lord Secolo's party was becoming restless at the lack of action by their leader, and now hope that he will finish his term with a series of populist proposals to secure their lead in the polls. "Sources close to the Solium have been saying for weeks now that an election is likely this summer" said RMi News' political editor, Romano Gerradi. "It's not too surprising then, to learn this now - however it is interesting that they will only have 5 weeks to wrap up proposals," he added. The actual date of the election is not known yet, although it will be released to the public soon. Earlier this week, Secolo attended his fortnightly briefing with the Queen but joined her for lunch as well, an extension that hasn't happened since the conflict with Hiigara several months ago.

Currently support for Secolo stands at 38%, with the opposition Il Popolo party also on 38%, and the Democratic Party on 20%. With his poll rating stagnating and no lead at all, the Solium's current resident will have to campaign vigorously over the next two months to ensure that he isn't leaving his current home in August.

Armato Salvatori begin major training season
Summer exercises will be biggest in 25 years

The Armato Salvatori launched it's 10-week long military training session today, in what is expected to be the longest and most expensive series of military manoeuvres in a quarter of a century. The Marino and Cielo Salvatore, the two largest parts of the Cattalian Armed Forces, will be participating in a series of defensive and offensive exercises, as well as anti-submarine and anti-aircraft drills. "This summer, the Armato Salvatori will be undergoing its most extensive and intensive military drills and exercises for a generation. These training sessions are necessary to secure our borders, strengthen our military and prepare for any eventuality that may arise." said the Ministry of Defence, in a statement this afternoon. Anti-warfare organisations have criticised the move, and demanded an end to the expansion of the military. It's believed that the increase in military training may be a result of recent tensions with Hiigara and other AIN partners.

Hiigaran Confederacy is worried about the training. But Hiigaran Military will not hold any trainings and will mostly ignore them, if only the military personal of Cattala not enter the Sea Boarders of Hijara.

This is a mere response to the military exercises from the Atlantic Federation and Syldavia. This is potentially the start of a large scale confrontation. The Coalition for the Proliferation of Peace strongly dislikes such actions.
