Yes, unbelievably British in terms of oddness, but the British increasingly celebrate the independance of it's former penal colony and dumping ground for anyone unfortunate enough to be out of favour with its churches and monarchy (yes ... the usual fucked up suspects).
Now, I know that the "monarchy" never liked a fight it couldn't win (which one, I hear you ask, take your pick, I say, there's been enough different "monarchies" to pick from) (which might explain why the Yanks won) BUT ... why does this celebration pass without there being troops and guns to police it like the numerous "national day" type celebrations of other cultures in the UK?
Personally, I think it's fantastic that the Brits took a beating and celebrate with a grin (much to "her majesty's" dismay, there are many more "traitors" who are of exactly the same mind)
So I can justify relaxing with a "Bud" (except I don't like it) and joining in with the party, BUT ... what about all the Union Jack waving hypocrites that thing it's great to celebrate having been whupped and sent packing ??? ... very un-British if you ask me!
So now ... a really stupid (just to keep things within TOS) question ....
How fucking stupid are "patriotic" Brits being by celebrating this occasion?
(ps: this is not an attempt to get gifted a free Bud or several ... it's really NOT nice)
