I had to share this, as every now and then something like this pops up and its just so quaint!



'Monarch' sought for small island


A monarch is being sought for a tiny island off the coast of Cumbria
....
Piel Island, situated off the southern tip of Walney Island, is home to a 14th Century castle, six former coastguard cottages, and a Grade II listed inn.

The licensee of the Ship Inn is traditionally known as the "King of Piel" and manages the island under formal lease.

The post is now vacant, and Barrow Borough Council is inviting applicants to take up the unique role
....
Would-be monarchs are invited to outline their proposals for the future of the island.

Hmm, I think I could sit in a castle, demand Jeeves bring me a three course meal and look down on anyone who dares step foot into my kingdom. Sounds like a good deal, where do I pick up my crown?
