God save our gracious Queen

Long live our noble Queen

God save the Queen

Send her victorious

Happy and glorious

Long to reign over us

God save the Queen

Those *superior* Brits. To think that God holds them in such high regard that HE would even consider saving them or their precious Queen. What is so damn special about the United Kingdom? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

/forums/images/icons/shocked.gif God Bless America

Land that I love

Stand beside her

and guide her

Thru the night with a light from above

From the mountains

to the prairies

To the oceans

white with foam

God bless America

My home sweet home

God bless America

My home sweet home

Is your point that Americans and British are equally egocentric?

Though the UK can easily compete with the US on patriotic songs etc , patrotism is in fact regarded with a lot morescepticism in the UK these days than in he US. People are particularly wary of flag waving, and the Union Jack has negative connotations for many people, as it was used extensively by the far right in the 70s and 80s.

Before anyone decides to start a fight about this can I reiterate I'm not British, and I don't have what could be called favourable opinions of how the UK is run or how it's behaved historically.

There's a transcript here of a recent debate on patriotism at Oxford University for anyone who might be interested.

You should post here more, WTF.
