I hope all of my Colonial Cousins noticed how quiet I was yesterday?
It was, after all Your Day ... The 4th of July (even though some say that The Declaration of Independence was actually signed on the 2nd of July or even as late as the 2nd of August).
In this current economic climate and time of heightened political tension, I thought it would be better if I didn't add to your troubles.
But today is the 5th of July, so here goes ...
That is as long as you've had bloody America!
And you've bleedin' well broke it!
Well, at least that's what some analysts are saying.
America, they say, is closer to the brink of disaster than ever before.
So, ask yourselves honestly, 'Could we (Brits) have done any worse than all those American politicians over the years'?
I think not!
I mean, what if those Bostonians hadn't thrown that tea over board? What if the tea tax had been paid with smiles on faces?
What if Mr Washington had said "Sorry, I can't lead your army. I'm washing my hair that day!"
And what if we didn't come second in the War of Independence and you still owed fealty to HRH Queen Elizabeth?
So, as you probably all woke up this morning in a fragile state, complete with party hangovers, let me just say, I hope you're pleased with yourselves!
Now, if any of you wish to return to the fold, as it were, I'm sure I could put a good word in for you!
