Malarbor says: Well, puny mortals, Malarbor has had a fine treat today. The first whole Voortrekker that I've had to devour in many a year. So long Paul Duit, as my roots burrowed into your flesh and rended you limb from limb, I felt as if our acquaintance was so fleeting that I hardly knew ye.

Talking to the Voortrekkers, did you know that the Kaiser's advisers, in a fit of demented generosity and a complete lack of strategic nous had offered to alienate the western portion of his patrimony to permit the recreation of a Batavian nation in the form of a condominium jointly administered with the Voortrekker government? Or that after twelve years (AN) of demonstrating good neighbourliness they would ceded the territory outright in return for scant territorial compensation in the lands stolen by the Voortrekkers from the Siyacha in central Benacia?

Happily for the Imperium, the insane generosity of the Imperial Advisory Council was matched only by the insane arrogance of the Voortrekkers presently ensconced in the Jing enclave of King's Worth. Where we saw prudent safeguards for the condominium, a joint garrison, a mechanism for arbitration, a pledge of good will, peaceful intent, and neutrality, they saw only unwarranted constraints upon their sovereignty. Rather than regain ancestral lands and their cultural patrimony, the Voortrekker community now proposes to uproot to the irradiated hell that is Eura.

Malarbor hopes that the Euran Death Worms enjoy their meals as much as he did.

On a partially related note, have you ever noticed how poultry farmers taste like chicken whilst cattle ranchers seldom taste of beef? Weird, huh?

Lord Prætor

Today I have signed a treaty with the independent Batavian government on the full sovereign reunification of the Batavian nation. With this treaty, Shireroth will cede to the independent state of Batavia the entirety of the Imperial Dominion of Batavia, including Siyacha. By so doing, Shireroth will make real of its promise to act in the interests of a united reunified Batavia, independent, free, will full national sovereignty. Let the world know: Shireroth stands by its words. Shireroth keeps its promises.

Under this treaty, Batavia and Shireroth will have a permanent state of peace, friendship and cooperation with free trade until the end of the world. This is good for our economy and for the Batavian economy. For a twenty-year period, Batavia will fully align with Shirerithian customs regulations – bringing stability, reliability and strength to our common imports and exports regimes. This is good for Shirerithian economy, for the Batavian economy, and for our workers everywhere.

The cession may look big on the map – it is a large piece of land ceded – but in terms of the number of people directly affected by this cession we have some 21 thousand nobles, 3 million denizens, 200 thousand loyal subjects, 250 thousand community servants, and 140 thousand protected persons. The latter three groups will remain in Batavia, while the nobles and denizens have a right to return to Shireroth if they so wish. If a noble returns to Shireroth, they may of course bring their legally owned chattel along with them.

I commend this Treaty to the Landsraad, and move that the Landsraad ratify it without delay.

Quote:

My Lords

Voting has ended after the 3-ASC-unit of a period required by the Procedures of the Landsraad. 4 members voted (Sentratera & Sentratera, Kezan, & St Zor). They all voted in favour. 6 members were absent (Furniture, Prince Ryker, Prince Raynor Jacobus Loki, Vigeland, Sadri of Pasdaran, Lady Nostalgia).

As such the Treaty has been duly ratified.
