How many colonies have you been kicked out of now Ian?
Personally, none. Although I have lived in two, including the United States, and both treated me well and rightly recognized me as their old master.

It's all "Yes Sir" and "No Sir" at immigration and a nice long-term working visa to boot. No problem. But then I wouldn't expect one. I'm just coming home to survey the land and see how you guys have been keeping the place.

The answer to that, of course, is not very well. Bridges falling down. Gas pipes exploding. etc. etc.

Do you use a knive & fork with that Snickers bar?
If in the company of others, absolutely! That's just good manners.
