We’re in a bad way. With the UK leaving the bastion of stability and economic growth, the EU, we have to do everything in our power to ensure that Tony Blair and Nick Clegg form the next British government PDQ. One fears that the anti-capitalist, anti-market instincts of the Tories will imperil all four constituent countries of the United Kingdom. The EU has been utterly libertarian and anti-red tape. It has done much to ensure that democratic rights are respected throughout the Old Continent.
Take, for example, 2005. Clearly a rabid minority of voters in France and the Netherlands found ways to thwart the will of the majority by stuffing ballot boxes and rejecting the European Constitution. Thankfully, Angela Merkel relied on her deeply-engrained respect for civil liberties that were instilled in that earthly paradise, the German Democratic Republic.
As for you Aussies… Isn’t it time to get on with it and become a republic under the exquisitely popular Malcolm Turnbull with Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd as joint-presidents? Peter Fitzsimon’s exquisite leadership of the Australian Republican Movement will ensure that this comes to pass within weeks.

Yeah, verily, there is no help for us, saith the English apostate, already in the half-light of outer-darkness.
Janus: I’m sure that that international sex symbol, Guy Verhofstadt, will be happy to instruct us in how to become like that model of integration, harmony and glamour, Belgium.
Yes I am aware of the date, Christopher. 🙂 Your command of sarcasm is truly British. BTW, you forgot to mention the positive effect that the Wee Krankie is having on the unity of the UK.
FEEG: Oh yes, she’s truly unifying the entire United Kingdom. Her respect for the wishes of the Scottish people to be engaged in never-ending constitutional arguments is truly heart warming. Her respect for dissenting views is only equalled by the on-point, laser-like focus of the Scots Labour Party.
Damn, it’s after twelve!
Not in WA though! Come on! 🤓
Well when I’m here I always think UK time.
Spoil sport! 🤓
Good to see that you restrained yourself with your April 1st effort.
Praising Alex Salmond would have been a complete giveaway. He is, after all, still an alcohol-soused waste of space, and oxygen. I blame him.
Moving on, I’m experimenting with the Oxford comma at the moment. I may not have got that one right.
Whatever. I will persevere. Uppards!
C’mon Cambridge tomorrow, by the way.
JM: Alex Salmond, that pitiful specimen of a “man” is such a risible mess that I could hardly find a way to make a greater joke of him than he has already man of himself. I am happy to be able to inform you that Viking-type Chum has taken to muttering “I blame Alex Salmond” in Danish every time he is faced with any sort of inconvenience. My efforts have utterly failed in Hunland. Huns are far too literal.
Based on what I’ve read from Scotland, the Caviar Queen is well on her way to following in his footsteps.
I really, really, really need to know the Danish for ‘I blame Alex Salmond’?
No pressure, of course.
JM, ‘Jeg bebrejder AS’, pron. ‘Yigh bebrider..’
PS, JM, you overdo the revered comma, methinks. Only use it to avoid ambiguity, eh?
JM: The Dane said: “Jeg skyder skylden på Alex Salmond”.
JM, a Dark Blue Day, huh? (ignoring the female element wh need more practice)
