Restraining order to keep Government away from country


The High Court has issued a restraining order that requires the government at least 5.5km or "a bloody bargepole" (whichever is longer) from the United Kingdom.


In his judgement, Sir Peter Roth (97), said that to avoid further damage, Rishi Sunak's government should immediately move outside the 3 nautical mile limit. When asked where they should go, Sir Peter initially replied, 'Don't tempt me'. But then he suggested Rockall.


When it was pointed out that Rockall was a bleak granite islet 230 miles west of the Outer Hebrides, Sir Peter was seen to smile and he replied.: 'Yes, I know.'
