Three Cheers. The British Empire is in the pink and expanding!

Good work Belinda - plenty more to be done yet - carry on.

Telegraph | News | Red-hot filling adds acres to a Sandwich island

British territory is expanding rapidly in the South Atlantic, thanks to this eruption on Mount Belinda.
Belinda can be seen as a red eye staring into space in satellite images of Montagu Island, in the South Sandwich Islands, which has grown by 50 acres in a month.

Three cheers. Just goes to prove that even volcanic rock is on the side of her glorious Brittanic Majesty. I think I may go to this Montagu Island and set up a trading post. The diet of seal and roasted penguin might start to bore after a few weeks thought what. Best pack the Oxo cubes to brighten things up eh.

And she's probably pumping out oodles of CO2 and blowing a hole in the ozone layer to boot. Huzzah! Lots of reasons for the greenies to become upset.

"Three cheers for Belinda and double chocolate rations for the men, Sarn't Major."

Makes me go warm all inside... no wait that's the hole in the ozone layer :P .

Except that now they'll demand even-tighter restrictions on our CO2 production :( ...
