The Times newspaper in London asked for readers to suggest new mottos for the British. Here are a few:

Best before nineteen-thirty-nine

May contain nuts

God Save Our Gracious Queen!

Wallowing in a postcolonial miasma

We made other countries great!

One nation under the thumb

Dentistry is not our forte


No problem left untaxed

Land of the… everyone, really

Over-priced, over-weight, over-crowded, over….

To thine own self be true

Hanging on in quiet desperation

Stout hearts through troubled times
