Gem of the Ocean
Alerted by a message "magically" transmitted to Great Heaving HQ via the brand new all-analogiue sub-Atlantic communications cable [ANSACC] we would like to take this opportunity to offer a big "shout out" to our belatedly "loyal" US cousins in the generously-expressed hope that they are enjoying - as well as properly acknowledging - the perspicacity of their Dorset ancestors in [a] setting them free to make their own mistakes - and, let's face it, there have been a few - and [b] thereby allowing all of our trans-Atlantic cousins - regardless of race, creed, colour, gender-preference, past, present and future voting behaviour and/or institutional/social/cultural affiliation to celebrate Premature But in Retrospect Proto-Politically Correct Decolonisation Day [PBiRPPCD Day]. Didn't we do well?
Once the international beacon of freedom from oppression, you are now officially "in the dock" as well! Enjoy!
