I think that a far more sensible option would be to put the unpleasantness of 1776 behind us and welcome the US back into the Commonwealth.

I'm against it. I'm not spelling colour without the u. That is madness and heresy of the highest order!!!

We could have a new series of Bergerac, but in Miami or somewhere!

Maybe some kind of basic citizenship check. Like check they can spell colour and pronounce aluminium?

Absolutely!
Immediate deportation for aluminum spoken in public.
That would be discussed and agreed with border officials of course.
Fine details which can be ironed out.
It could easily work.

*edit*
Reciprocal arrangements for UK migrant workers saying aluminium in the US as well, kick them out...same any insurgents using metric measurements unless they refer to beer and pints.

Beer!!! I forgot about that. Can we really warmly embrace any nation into the commonwealth that considers Coors or Bud to be fit for human consumption?

Sierra Nevada TORPEDO makes up for all that with room to spare though.

Agreed.
It would be part of the compulsory migrant workers exam to learn about ales certainly.
No worries, with strong management it could work.

Very bad idea .... can you imagine the chaos if we in the UK were allowed firearms?

Haha....wouldn't happen. What joker would wish to become the 51st state? They bow to the UK in reality.

Everyone secretly does

Up here it is Tennents and McEwans. Beer you don't so much buy as rent.

I actually rather like McEwans Export. It's a good sub for Newkie Brown.
Tennents (when I was a kid) had fantastic cans with pin up girls on them. I rather liked their style


Tennents Super, however, is the pee of Satan.

It doesn't need to become a state, it's already the US's biggest aircraft carrier.

And Launch pad for Nuclear weapons. Just another US buffer zone.

We are allowed already, easily, just licensed.
If a killer wanted a legally held gun to kill with then it would not be difficult if he/she is of previous good character.
Killers in the UK don't generally do that though, we knife each other, probably born of convenience I imagine.
