(Free-Press-Release.com) July 5, 2011 – WE ARE THE BRITS, Anton Lorien

1st Verse
A thousand years in just one place
We kept it strong, we kept it safe
This rough and tumble island race
Surrounded by the sea.
Spanish Armada, Nazi bombs
We stood together, proud and strong
We kept these islands all along
Sovereign and…

Free as the ocean that surrounds us
We are who we have always been

We are the Brits
You better get used to it
We’re the Brits
Don’t try to give us any…
We are the Brits

One percent of the human race
We’re the Brits
And we are in your face

2nd Verse
We gave the world penicillin
Phone and fax and television
Electric light, commercial jets
A global language, the internet.
Cricket, tennis, golf, football
Rugby, squash, Queensberry Rules
Shakespeare, Chaplin, photography
Parliamentary democracy


God save our gracious Queen
Long live our noble Queen
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the…

3rd Verse

Britain sleeps safe at night
Young men stand ready to fight
Those who would do us harm
Freedom assured by force of arms
Soldier, sailor, RAF
We walk free, they stood the test
Toughness, courage, humour, soul
And our boys in Helmand – still on patrol

While their families wait and wonder
But they don’t make a fuss of it

Punching Above Our Weight

Was just reminded by Vince Cable on the BBC World at One that Britain is “TWO PERCENT OF THE WORLD ECONOMY”. Given that we are only ONE PERCENT of the world’s population it seems we DO punch above our weight. Way, way above our weight.

I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)

The greatest and most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had with the courage to fight the Islamist terrorists who really would like to kill us all, and you never hear a good word about him. The herd of independent minds, commentators, activists etc who have never had to make a difficult decision in their lives drown out all debate with their inane chants of war crimes and blood on his hands. Defend him at every chance. I just wish more people would do it. (Glasgow, UK)
Blair was the greatest Labour Prime Minister. It is a disgrace that the party has turned away from his legacy. Shame on Ed Miliband and his so-called ‘new generation’.
