God save the Queen

From Friday's All Things Considered on NPR:

"British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is considering having teenagers pledge their allegiance to the queen, as part of an effort to encourage a sense of citizenship in culturally fragmented Britain."

Don't miss the whole piece. There's tons of good material.

Since I moved to the UK, I've endured many forms of mockery about how Americans pledge allegiance to the flag. If this goes through, I'm going to have a field day!! Of course, chances are it WON'T go through.
