Happy 4th to my American readers.

I hope you’re maxi-vaxxed and able to get out for barbecues and fireworks and whatever it is you do to celebrate casting off the shackles of mad King George.

We’ve been back in lockdown here, so as an added bonus you can enjoyed the delicious schadenfreude of recalling with advantages all the smarmy, self-satisfied shit we gave you this time last year about how much better things were in old Georgie’s far flung antipodean colonies.
