France 2017?

News agencies are reporting that the Royal Navy is being deployed to ferry British back home from wherever they may be stranded on the continent.  Maybe it’s because I watched 2012 last night (that’s 2 hours of my life I won’t get back) or the fact that Peter has begun counting down to doomsday, but I thought of Billy Joel’s Miami 2017 and the lyrics:

They sent a carrier out from Norfolk-
And picked the Yankees up for free.
They said that Queens could stay,
They blew the Bronx away-
And sank Manhattan out at sea….
