    I am disappointed to see that England is not being offered for sale on eBay, which is what the headline made me expect.

    England was sold ages ago by Margret Thatcher, it was in the olden days before they had ebay or am sure she would have put it on, opening bid 99p

    In one of the James Bond movies made in the 1980s, Margaret Thatcher (played by a look-alike) gives James Bond a congratulatory phone call, and while she is talking to him on the phone in the kitchen of 10 Downing Street, Dennis (played by a Dennis Thatcher look-alike) tries to sneak some food and gets his hand slapped away by her. I don't recall the rest of the movie.

    He had a large glass of grog in his other hand and he looked as though it wasn't his first that evening. :smile:

    I seem to remember that he looks right at the camera and smiles, like some yokel in the background of a television news shot. Funny moment.
