London. – The helicopter project received the green light today, business sources indicated. “We’re all very happy to have the required funding,” said Dave Witless, project leader. The 747 billion project will lift the British mainland up by helicopter and relocate it at a mid-Atlantic standpoint safely away from its continental neighbours and closer to the USA. ‘We’re think it’ll be better this way – lots of space for us, and no more accidentally picking up French radio,” said J Bull, the project’s initial architect. Protests have been raised from Scotland that the highland country should be detached first, or at least deposited somewhere with better weather.
