Brits don't want no stinkin' mottos

The Prime Minister of Britain has launched a "statement of values" program, one task of which is to come up with a sort of slogan that encapsulates British identity. This has not really caught fire among British citizens. The Times of London sponsored a motto writing contest. Some of the entries were:

Once Mighty Empire, Slightly Used

We Apologize for the Inconvenience

The readers voted and the winner was:

No Motto Please, We're British.

My own personal favorite was:

At Least We're Not French

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
