As an Englishmen who one day hope's to become a Priest in the USA I kinda like this song.

However it is kinda simplistic, you gotta remember that the although he was a bit mad King George the third was as decent a king as a protestant could be.

Also did you know that the Star Spangled Banner was composed after Francis Scott Key saw the English congreave Rockets firing at Fort McHenery illuminating the American Flag.

Finally do modern americans think ironic that they denied the same f right to self-determination they fought for in the war of independance to the States who chose seceeded to form the confederacy.

Btw would you Americans mind if we deposed King George's successors and asked to admited to the union as the 51st State?
