“There are 183 countries in the world who have independence days – what we have just done is we voted to become the 184th,” he said with relish.
Actually, I live in a country where they have three. There’s independence from Spain day, then the national day, then the independence from the fascists in 1974 day.
And why not a June 23 Independence Day? To be celebrated by putting on a slightly dodgy suit and having a pint and a fag outside the pub?
Or even, now that we are free, a fag inside the pub, if the landlord allows?
