I've no idea whether she's a nice old lady or not, but suppose she is. How does that merit "allegiance"? Mary three doors down is a nice old lady, but I can't claim to feel any "allegiance" to her.

Of course, she's one of these bogtrotters you know.

OK, I'm pledging allegiance to Mary who lives three doors down from Wyatt. The Queen has enough. Nice little old ladies don't get enough allegiance

Who's with me?

I've already pledged allegiance to my Gran (and there's Welsh there if you go back far enough - the shame!).

Mark Steel in today's Indie :

Anyway, the thing is we just don't do oaths and pledges of allegiance because they're not British. And anyone who says otherwise should be told they've failed the test, don't understand our culture and have to go and live somewhere else.

Or you could have a question that asks: "Name five situations in which it would be suitable to stare blankly and mutter the phrase 'fucking Ada'."

I love Mark Steel. Thanks, zombie

Another pathetic attempt to patch up the Union, which is taking an inevitable course towards seperation.

(Probably the most poignant line i've ever muttered here)

And girls will graduate if they've got a letter about what's annoying them published in The Daily Telegraph, such as: "Dear sir: It has come to my attention that the 'boys' who frequent Club 99 at the rear of the disused cinema in Swindon old town have, of late, appeared unrelentingly minging. One fears this is indicative of a general decline, like so much else these days, and makes one yearn for back in the day in like 2004, and that when they was like well fit. Yours sincerely
brilliant.

The Labour Party, there. Marvellous.

I was just on my way out of teh country when this broke and didn't get a chance to find out the full proposals. Has this idea been smothered at birth, or is there any prospect at all that anything will come of it?

And what happens to someone who says "no"?

You get sent to one of the new Commonwealth penal colonies, currently under construction in the Maldives, St. Lucia and Antigua.

Back where they came from for them. Despicable foreign elements. British way of life don't you know. Marvellous. Don't like it, don't come here, what? Send 'em back.

They don't get a council tax or student fee rebate.

quote:
The other tangle we get in is when we wonder why we can't be like Americans, who have no qualms making pledges to their country. But their pledge is to a set of ideas on which the country was founded, most of which evoked the rights of citizens and were fought for in opposition to the monarchy we're still being asked to subject ourselves to. So even most liberals feel comfortable with it, sensing they're signing up to the ideas of the founding fathers, and a flag that was carried in a war against slavery, and that recent presidents have betrayed those ideals.

Whereas we're asked to say something like: "We are truly grateful to live in a land where we are all judged on our efforts, and our actions as good citizens. And for this we give boundless praise to our almighty gracious glorious radiant majesty that she may bestow upon us these rights, oo she's marvellous, 82 and never stops, we are truly the most odious rancid sewage compared to thee."

What he said.
