My petition:

Break up HMS Victory and send the timbers to France to help rebuild Notre Dame

Britain has a shameful history in Europe – Brexit, Agincourt, Bucks Fizz – it’s time we made amends to our EU partners. After the tragic fire, France needs high quality oak timbers to repair Notre Dame. We have a source of timber currently sitting doing nothing in Portsmouth – HMS Victory.

France has given us so much. Les Miserables was the first novel to destigmatise mental illness. Jean-Paul Gaultier invented the stripey jumper. And who can forget Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds? Unfortunately, Britain failed to reciprocate. We wrecked the first attempts at European integration, in 1803 and 1939. HMS Victory is part of that barbaric past, whose legacy persists – Portsmouth voted Leave in 2016. President Macron admires old relics – let’s send him Victory with our apologies.

Go on, you know you want to.

Unable, presently, to add my fullhearted and heartfelt support as the required five endorsements have been reached and HMG are now evaluating the proposal. One feels sure that they will agree to allow the petition to go forward, as it is a very fine one indeed.

There is one possible reservation, it is not beyond possibility that if debated in the HoC the Commons might actually support this supplication. Far stranger things have recently happened in the Mother of Parliaments.

Perhaps we should offer them the roof of our Parliament building as well. After all, once we’re in the EU we will have no need of it, and it doesn’t look as if we’re leaving any time soon…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
