As you friends and comrades know, December is the 80th anniversary of real-life Edward's abdication. Should we commemorate it and if so, how? Any ideas?

I think we should celebrate it as without it I wouldn't be on this forum and met an interesting group of people/friends.
As to how I haven't got a clue.

Could we commission a miniature sculpt?

I have no idea of the cost this would involve but I'd be happy to pay a reasonable amount for a good quality mini or set of minis.

We could all run away from our jobs with an unsuitable floozy?

We could honour the opinions of the king/prince, take out subscriptions to the daily mail & march on parliament .. but I think that the little rottenführer is already organizing one ....

What about a commemorative mug? Sort of an anti-coronation souvenir. ;)
