Somerset will secede from the UK over the issue of the “cider tax”, the totally f’ing absurd minimum price per unit of alcohol proposals. The Cornish and the rest of the Celtic brotherhood will support the rebellion, the rest of the former empire will get on the bandwagon of revenge and the US will have the tough choice of the “special relationship” or the immigrant vote. And the Chinese will sell us all scooters to run to the hills. Duck and cover!
Excellent point. Nations queue up, bribe, lie, intimidate and downright bullshit for the honour of holding the Olympics or the World Cup. What we need is a World War Committee (Like FIFA and the Olympics Committee) and Nations should be encouraged to send sealed bids for the next World War. Think about it, the Advertising and Media Rights would be enormous (This is CNN bringing you the latest LIVE updates from the Fulda Gap..but first, a word from our sponsors, Cocal Cola,... it's the real thing....) Regimental Badges could be replaced by Corporate Logos and ActiVision would make a bomb (geddit) with their annual 'Call of Duty' games releases featuring the latest weaponry. Hey, we could even hold 'Medal Ceremonies' in Wembley or the O2 Arena!! The possibilities are boundless...... I think the Chinese would love to be the first....... the amount of money the Man U 'Red Army make annually through shirt sales would pale into insignificance compared to the REAL Red Army!
