Ducks endanger the Royal family (for once it's not a Sun journalist)

The article is in French and I can't find its English counterpart

Article in French

So basically Charles has bought seven ducks (meet Arabella, Antoine, Parsley, Sage, Rose, Mary and Thyme ) in a bid to get rid of snails and others nuisances in a eco way (always the Green Prince).
The problem is the ducks are very active and spend their days (and nights) running on the grass of Balmoral. Doing so, they active the uber sophisticated security system which can detect steps on the floor all the time.
So basically, it's a security nightmare.
But it's eco-friendly, for sure :p .

I like their names.
These alarms are very sensitive if they can be activated by ducks.

Translation of the Important Parts of the Previous French Article:

The security alarm systems installed by the Royal Family in Scotland are sounding off day and night due to seven ducks and their daily, vociferous migrations.

Their names are Arabella, Antoine, Parsley, Sage, Rose, Mary, and Thyme. Their boundless energy is making the British Security crazy by their movements sounding off the newly installed security alarms. The birds were bought by Prince Charles to eliminate snails and other nuisances on his Balmoral lands near Birkhall.

After several undesirable intrusions at Buckingham Palace and Windsor, the improved security system was installed at Balmoral with underground detectors as a part of it. These detectors, however, cannot recognize the difference between a duck's running footsteps and a human's. The sound of their collective footsteps set off the detectors very easily adds a source.

The ducks are extremely active in comparison to other ducks explains the Times. These ducks run instead of just walking. Their appetite for snails and other natural contaminents of the soil, make them an excellent ecological way to eliminate these contaminents, which is important to the heir to the British Throne who champions organic and ecological farming.

Well, maybe Charles can get an organic security system installed like German shepherds and Dobies and so on, assuming they could be trained to ignore running ducks.

Thanks for the translation, Tiaraprin.:)

Trial against the Royal Family

From L'intelligent Jeune Afrique
Original article in French

My own attemp of a translation (to give some rest to Tiaraprin :) )

An Ugandan King loses his trial against the Royal Family
OUGANDA - 24 august 2005 - PANAPRESS


The King of Bunyoro, Solomon Gafabusa Iguru, has lost his trial against the British Monarchy which he accused of having plundered Uganda's treasures and of committed atrocities during the colonial occupation.

He also accused the UK government of having given away two Ugandan counties (Buyaga and Bugangaizi) to the Kingdom of Buganda. The King asked for compensation for the bad treatment of his people and the steal of the country's natural resources by Britannic colons.
While classifying the file, the Ugandan judge, Richard Oscar Okumu-Wengi, from the High Court of Justice, said that the British Government refused to send a representan arguing that the trial was taking place in a foreign country.

Surely that should be the Duchy of Burgundy? Sounds positively medieval! A crown for the Comte de Paris, perhaps? Thanks for the translation Idriel - aren't the British to blame for everything? - but I'll go for Burundi.
