Well. THAT was interesting. - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
Well. THAT was interesting.

I know I said I wouldn’t mind being blown over the weekend, but I hadn’t Dame Nature in mind for the task.


At least it gave me time to footle about.  I did manage to propose a European Union I could accept without reservation.  And it would give HRH the duke of Edinburgh something to do….

An EU model we can all of us support.


Do stay safe and dry, you lot.

NB I am not complaining, but how did we obtain part of Estonia? (I rather think it might give Harry something to do, too, and his speeches are already written.)

You want an EU, you get an EU, in toto. So long as it's all British....

We'll take the lot.

And we've enough Royals to go 'round. Even some RC ones.

Well, this is only the European part....

Nothing wrong with painting the whole map red.

But what on earth will we do with all that?

It's doubtless my computer, but Germany looks as if you've gone for a compromise between the Weimar and the BRD flag...

Do with it?

Sir Humphrey has long since answered THAT.

I did rearrange the German coloours slightly for the sake of putting the Union flag in the canton with better aesthetics.

Not on your life.

I rather expected that.

And I don't of course truly advocate this. I do say it's the only model for an EU of which Britain is a part, that I could accept.

Whatever happened to having the pink bits of the map? :D

Fine be me.

I happen to like maps made of flags, was all.

I completely endorse your New EU and think it very colourful. The whole of Europe looks somehow more cheery with the bits of blue everywhere! Very creative. Today, Europe. Tomorrow, the world! Also, I can think of several minor royals who could be palmed off onto the Colonies...

Well, as I say, tongue firmly in cheek, if we must have an EU, let it be British.

And it wd indeed make a useful system of outdoor relief for the minor Windsors.

I can't help but notice you seem to be pressing for a restoration of the Angevin empire as was. Why not Henry V's Treaty of Paris as well..?

Why not indeed?

So soon as the Frogs learn cricket....

As Ld Salisbury once noted

Most of the difficulties encountered by statesmen are the fault of using maps that are too small in scale.

I left off Gib for the same reasons you can't see Andorra, say, or San Marino.
