"unless we move Parliament to a nice offshore island"
Hmm, he says, innocently... aren't they already on a nice offshore island from (the rest of) Europe?
Although if an island offshore from Britain is desired, may I suggest https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruinard_Island
there's no network service of any kind, including basic PSTN, there, so they would be able to rant away and no-one would know. Seems ideal. And it's goode for thieves and outlaws, again making it ideal. The only problem is that the Scots might object.
