“I fear that this has become a bad relationship. A relationship based on the President taking exactly what he wants and casually ignoring all those things that really matter to, erm… Britain. We may be a small country but we’re a great one, too. The country of Shakespeare, Churchill, the Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter. David Beckham’s right foot. David Beckham’s left foot, come to that. And a friend who bullies us is no longer a friend. And since bullies only respond to strength, from now onward, I will be prepared to be much stronger. And the President should be prepared for that.”

Attention World, there has been a rule change.
From the treaty of the treason:
In penance for you giving us low points in eurovision, each country shall offer up male and female athletes the ages of 18 and 35 at a public ”Reaping.”
These athletes shall be delivered to the custody of London.
And then transferred to a public arena where they will Fight to the Death until a lone victor remains.
Henceforth and forevermore this pageant shall be known as The Olympics.
