The olde axiom “the Sun never sets on England” has now become “the Sun is setting on England”!
Sir Winston has been forgotten!

All the usual cliches about the UK on this thread as I expected.

I own three guns, I carry them round in my Land Rover and shoot with them weekly. The licences required are simple and easy to comply with, I’ve never had any problems in twenty years of gun ownership. If people are incapable of complying with firearm licences, they shouldn’t own guns.

PS - your old axiom is very wrong. The sun sets on England everyday, it would be most odd if it didn’t. I think the phrase you were seeking was “The sun never sets on the British Empire” which refers to the fact that somewhere in the world it was always daylight on a part of the empire.
