Here’s your chance – and you don’t even have to move out of London. Danny Wallace has taken his dream and declared himself King of a new country. No need to call in the movers, his territory consists of his flat in Bow, a decision made after a failed attempt to invade Eel Pie Island, a small patch of land in the middle of the Thames. He’s now calling for citizens to join him and over 3000 have signed up. However, finding somewhere to sit to watch Danny’s coronation may be difficult – the flat is the size of a squash court. Never mind, it has a map, an army and a budget; looks like it’ll go far. There’s a BBC2 programme that goes with this as well.
