A very happy birthday, USA.
And many happy returns of the day.

Reagan statue unveiled in Grosvenor Square. (Fixed. Sodding Torygraph embeds.)

Let us repatriate the Revolution to the UK.

What made the Relationship Special.

The Americans spirit and its curious humility.

Needs more Sousa.

Other than that: Yes.

Sweetie, this is on autoplay and refuses to offer me a pause. Defriending you until it drops off my default friends list because it's too damn annoying to have my browser start borking due to it.

Fixed.

Sodding Torygraph embeds. I must remember to release my inner Hislop upon them.

Thank you for your good wishes. We've had a lovely Fourth, full of hamburgers and, oh, watching The Thick of It, actually.

I'm glad they picked one of the good-looking ones - Ford would've looked terrible in bronze. :) And it's quite an honour, isn't it?

Wasn't there a mix-up once with a speech about Independence Day in London, or am I misremembering?

How transatlantic of you.

It is, really.

I wish the world was flat like the old days...

And it was entirely unintentional, although perhaps not unlikely :)

Planning to go see this statue next time I'm in London. Where I lived during part of the Glorious Thatcher/Reagan 80s. Bless.
