News are coming in that an as of today unknown addition to the US Declaration of Independence was found in a broom cupboard at the National Archives in Washington, revealing that Independence from Great Britain was merely understood as a lease that will run run out after 240 years from signing the document, i.e. in 2016!
Queen Elizabeth II, who is in possession of the original document, is rumoured to have over the years ordered to have Buckingham Palace secretly torn down stone by stone (inside to outside, to make sure the process will go unnoticed for as long as possible), to be re-erected at a yet to be revealed spot in Manhattan - making NYC the new capital of the British Empire on July 4, 2016.
From sources wishing to remain unknown, we have heard that President Obama, after being informed about what's in store for his nation, has clandestinely started his own Corgy breeding farm somewhere on the Island of Hawaii, thus securing himself a modest income after his presidency.
Rumours also have it that the White House which will no longer be of use as a presidential residence, will be painted in a light duckegg colour, to serve as the new filming location for the next 24 seasons of "Downton Abbey".
