and in the only online dictionary ref I saw (from an admittedly cursory look), guess which is one of the countries to recognise this word patriate as of useful service?!
That's because we did it, in 1982, we patriated our Constitution (brought it under our own control) so we no longer have to go begging to your House O' Lords to make changes to our Constitution.
