Writer's Block: Let freedom ring
How do you celebrate Independence Day in your country?

As we haven't one, I instead celebrate

1. By wishing the Yanks I know a Happy Independence Day. And reminding them that they are, in fact, eligible to join the Commonwealth.

2. By being grateful for the Heaven-sent incompetence of Lord North, Johnny Burgoyne, various Clintons and Pelhams (yes, Americans, my connexions gave you yr independence, inadvertently), Graves, two Cornwallises, Howe, et alia.

3. In recalling what Pitt and Burke had to say at the time.

4. In urging our own independence from the bloody EU. Vide icon.

5. By fretting over England's ODI performance, and being Very Troubled in Behalf of Broady's Current Form.
