This Is Sure to Work

3:30 PM -- This Daily Mail story includes a great photo of two modern heroes:

    For pub-goers who enjoy a cigarette with their drink, next week's ban will make England a very different place.

    So one landlord has claims to have found a loophole to fight the new law - by declaring his pub to be part of a different country.

    The Wellington Arms in Southampton is set to transform itself from a public house into the official embassy for a tiny Caribbean island...

    Earlier this month, the pub was named as the official consulate in Britain for the island of Redonda, which lies 35 miles south west of Antigua in the Caribbean...

    Redonda is a one mile square remnant of the cone of an extinct volcano rising almost 970ft from sea level...
Volcanic. How appropriate.

re: This Is Sure to Work What a fantastic idea! Can I make my home an embassy for Bermuda so I don't have to pay taxes?
