|King Obama III|
When Obama comes to the UK in April to urge a 'remain vote' I trust Nigel or Boris will remind the President of the United States of America of some of the text in his nation's most revered document.
The Declaration of Independence
...in the name, and by the authority of the good people of this United Kingdom are, and of right ought to be a free and independent state;
that they are absolved from all allegiance to the European Crown, and that all political connection between them and the States of Europe, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as a free and independent state, the United Kingdom have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do.
..We have warned.. in attention to our Brussels brethren.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.
We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence.
We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.
We hold these truths to be self-evident...
