The city of Liverpool today erected a 400 ft wall around its borders announcing it no longer wanted to be counted as part of England but to be a country all by itself.
The people of Liverpool are now believed to be tying the coast of there city to hundreds of boats and dragging themselves to sunnier climbs.
A spokeswoman for The New Republic Of Liverpool had this statement:
"Its bloody freezing here, We keep getting called robbers so were sodding off somewhere warm, We may go live with Jamaica"
The Queen has wished them the best of luck and has sent them a farewell muffin basket.
