Here is another brilliant constitutional idea:  Britain should change its name to Ireland.  Who could stop it?  Think of the advantages.  The two countries could once more be united across the Irish Sea under one flag, and with one head of state: the President of Ireland.  Dispensing with the royal family, we would kill two birds with one stone.  Britain — or “the Irish Isles” as they would henceforth be known — could start again with a clean slate: there would be no former colonies, everyone likes the Irish.

Some spellings might be revised, but David Cameron could remain in London as the Deputy Tea-sock or T-shirt.

Gubbeen cheese.

The rest is up to you.
