No, no, no.

It's the wrong colours and far too neat.

William Morris designs are quite nice and are reasonably well known -

Don't forget Her Majesty The Queen. No exhibition of Britishness is complete without a picture which manifests Her dignity.

How very dare you, steviebehbeh!

I wrote that after 5 days in Paris...

I believe francis was in Outer Mongolia at the time (being an International Man of Mystery...innit?)

Interesting? Why yes, I'm always interesting for a foul-mouthed British Slapper extroadinaire who is generally shunned by the decent woman of A2K.

Prize Bulls with balls hanging down to the ground and a rosette on their ear being led by a pretty milkmaid in green wellies at a County agricultural show.

The barge as it pulls up at the end of a shift of getting the litter out of the canals of Manchester photographed so it can be seen that it isn't any old barge. The operatives in flat caps smooth with slime leaning on the handrail staring into the middle-distance.

I'm wondering why the pink_thespian has failed to acknowledge these ideas we have offered for the exhibition. That is definitely not British.

The Queen is a fine example. But we should not forget, of course, the rest of the royal family...
