Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7287984.stm

Apparently school-leavers should be encouraged to swear an oath of allegiance to Queen and country, says a report commissioned by Gordon Brown on British citizenship.

I imaging it would go something like this:

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and to the Parliamentary Democracy & Constitutional Monarchy for which it stands, one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

For crying out loud, we are not America. We should embrace this and be proud of it.
