self-reliance

Just came across this story of Barbados wanting to remove the Queen as Head of State by 2021.

So I’m thinking, hm Island, where is it, ah, in the middle of the ocean off South America in the Atlantic.

Then I start to calculate how long it will take this wonderful Island – if not to perish but significantly decrease in size through rising ocean levels because we do have a thing called earth warming.

An island that is surrounded by water, which is likely to rise, is probably better off with a great connection to a nation with lots of land like Britain and the Commonwealth has many opportunities for small island based nations.

I think Britain has come on in leaps and bounds to do with shaking off the past attitudes of conquerors and colonial slavery past. Even our local schools have renamed themselves to shake it off.

Well, good luck to all those who live there.
