It has been decided by the larger and improved Greater United European States that Henceforth it shall be entitled The Greater United States of Europe.
It has issued the following decrees :-
Britain must hand over all its titles and holdings to The Greater United States of Europe .
It has been decided that this State may not not be called Great, as this implies it is better than the rest of the E U .
It cannot be named Britain, as it contains differing provinces within its borders .
Henceforth it will be named ISLANDIA .
Scotland ,England and Wales will be integrated into this new Greater United States of Europe .
Thus it will become a State in the Greater United States of Europe .
Northern Ireland will be incorporated into our existing member ,namely Eire ,thus making it the Isle of Ireland .
There will be but one Capital of ISLANDIA, which will be London as it is nearest to the headquarters of the Greater United States of Europe's Community .
Edinburgh and Cardiff may be allowed to deem themselves Capitals .But only of the Regions of Scotland and Wales respectively .

The person elected as leader of ISLANDIA will automatically assume the position of Ambassador to the Greater United States of Europe .
