D'uurh?! :x :roll: We already have a National Flag Mr Brown, is that not good enough?! - Sorry I forgot, flying the Union Jack on municipal buildings offends members of other nations living on our shores so let's get a nice, cuddly "multi cultural" motto to keep the lefties happy! :roll:

That is a damned good point. No doubt Mr. Brown wants a break from tradition and something more akin to that revolting olympic logo or that British Airways foray into PR generated crap tailplane design.

We could get the BBC to run a phone in competition, £1 an entry then when all the votes are counted if they don't like the winner then just pick the one Gordon likes.

Ironic thing about this story is...

They'll be doing this because their focus groups are screaming at them about immigration and related stuff and how this guppymint don't seem to be patriotic at all (cos they are't)...

but because they're PC cnuts they're guaranteed to pick something that will p*ss off patriotic types and shoot themselves in the foot.

Ministers also want to produce a British version of the Gettysburg Address, the 270-word speech delivered by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 which summed up America's belief in freedom
We already have one didn't some bloke a little while ago mention we will fight them on the beaches etc.

We also have the magna carte, Queen Elizabeth's (the first) speach to the fleet. Shakespeares Henry V speaches before Harfleur and Agincourt. Land of hope and glory etc. etc.

If you are proud to be British there are plenty of historical anecdotes to be proud about. We don't really need a crappy, catchy, bland statement from a PR firm (that will probably cost a shed-load of tax money).


Grrrr!

How about

"GOD SAVE THE QUEEN"

It's been good enough to bind Britons together for centuries
Unfortunately it has to go on public buildings, so It would be in and out of date as the years went by - but the sentiment is there I'll grant you! 8)

A national motto for the UK? :roll: :roll: A nob idea but there can be only one contender, as a great man once said< (IIRC !):

" When the British Empire and all its glories have long been forgotten the only two things that we will be remembered for are the game of Association Football and the expression "FU*K OFF" . "

I rest my case. :p :p :p
