They've made a second article from it showing some of the comments again (nothing like re-stirred hate eh): http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/a ... ge_id=1770

Quite obviously they've picked the complimentry, optimistic, well thought out comments to promote... just kidding, it's almost all hate.

Would the last person to leave please switch off the lights!

- Colin, Doncaster England
Colin: Daddy, when I grow up I want to be just like Littlejohn
Colin's dad: oh, fuck.
I could give the government a few suggestions but they wouldn't be printable or suitable for public consumption.

- David, East Sussex
Such as "I'm a twat" ?

The motto is obvious - "We are watching you".

- Stephen, Reading
Obviously

With the socialists destroying everything British "Roll over we have lost Everything".

- Barry Holmes, Christchurch New Zealand
"we"? Has new zealand moved itself into Britain then?

How about:

"You Couldn't Make It Up If You Tried".

- Adrian, Reading, UK
And yet the Mail does daily.

My mottoo: Leave now!

- Dk, Sussex, UK
Oh come on! I can understand missing a typo in big comments but it can't be hard to check four words.

Another divertisement to get the people away from the real mess we are in.

- Ali, Doncaster
I see what you did there. It was rubbish.

A great country ruined by Nu Labor!

- Neil, Ryde, Isle of Wight
Nu, Nuuuuuu, Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu *belch*

Why not try "Mind over Matter".

NuLabour don't mind what voters think, because we don't matter!

- Sid, Cornwall
Yeah that's why they're asking us what we think. Prat.

The new motto?

'Give us all the money we can't tax out of you'.

How's that?

- Dorothy Quinlan, Angeles City, Republic of the Philippines
..yes

Brittanicus horribilis.

- Sue Southern, Northants, UK
"I tried to be funny. I failed"



I did a count:
67 negative/nasty
8 can't tell/pointless
5 positive

"We welcome comments from all sides" says the Mail spin team.
Of course you do Mavis, now get those pills down you.

Well we already have one:

"Dieu et mon droit"

French for "God and my right"
Err, technically it is the royal motto of QEII

something from the Enlightenment for me. tbh you can't beat Liberté, égalité, fraternité but i also like the German - Einigkeit, Recht und Freiheit (unity, justice and freedom)

much as i would love the UK to have a motto like the above, the whole idea to me kinda suggests the idea that the uk doesnt really know where it's goin politically, no-one really seems to have the vision of the future that inspired previous mottos
