Following the demise of the British Empire, the Last Laugh Looney Party, is not quite sure what British Overseas Territories it still owns. But whatever, it has decided to claim them for the Last Laugh Looney Party Island Republic. I have currently got my old stamp album out and I am looking at where they may all be.
Certainly the British Virgin Islands would be worth having because of all the money deposited there by UK citizens trying to avoid tax.
Anguilla, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands would definitely be worth adding to the Republics island portfolio because they not only have nice beaches, but a lot of banks to look after everyone’s money.
The Cocos Islands is also something we would like to acquire as John’s Dad was there in the war. Although I am not sure if they were ever part of the British Empire.
Saint Helena is way out in the South Atlantic and includes Ascension and Tristan Da Cuna. They have nice stamps but virtually nothing else. Still it was a good place to imprison Napoleon for a while. We could use it again to reintroduce transportation of all politicians who say nasty things about old people 😀😀😀
Then there are the South Sandwich Islands, they must be part of the Subway chain. We will have them for lunch.
The British Antarctic Territory would be a great acquisition just in case all the mad scientists are right about global warming. There are 70 scientists there right now trying to prove it! The only problem is that if it gets too hot there might not be too much of it left. It will have all melted !
It’s probably a bit too late to claim back New Zealand and Australia but it’s worth looking at. Especially if the All Blacks can be recruited to join the Leicester Tigers en masse.
