Joan Bates, aka, ‘Princess Joan of Sealand’, has died aged 86, 49 years after she and her husband, Major Roy Bates, cocked a snook at Britain by turning an anti-aircraft installation off the Essex coast into a micronation. They created their own constitution, flag, stamps, passports and currency. Clearly the couple were savants, and knew precisely where the ‘civilized’ world was headed! I too wish to form my own micronation, and take it back to pre-computer age and pre high-five age! Once I’ve located a suitable site, I will advertise for like-minded citizens who wish to divest themselves of the evils of the world and join me somewhere out at sea. MUST LIKE FISHING!
