    U: Kelpers, it is in your best interests that we run you from our province, look how we've fucked things up since we were founded by the British.

    FI: Sounds like a bit of a CF to us.

    U: Theeese strikes ees not for long.

    RI: Fixed the sewers yet?

    U: (Stick fingers in ears), la la la la la la la laaaaaa.

    FI: So we'd be better off in the Islands if we weren't run properly and everybody was on strike and fighting each other?

    U: Of course it's the latin way, bequeathed to us by our Spanish forefathers.

    FI: Keep it Chey, and keep lighting the tyres, that way the tourist ships give you a miss and come here.
