I'd have fought for the Brits. You can't let people get away with throwing away good tea! It's just not cricket. Plus they had nice uniforms.

And, if it wasn`t for the French being persuaded by Benjamin Franklin and John Adams to support the colonials cause they probably wouldn`t have won. And if that had happened, the world be a very different place today.

Always be British....the longer I'm here the less likely I am to take citizenship....it was the opposite a few years ago...

Think about it ...if the Brits had won the locals would know how to use a knife and fork ....puts me right off sitting in a restaurant watching people use their hands to load their fork or frantically trying to cut a piece of meat with the side of the fork ....

Sounds like someone needs a trip back - it's not all cut glass and starched tablecloths in England, either...

Deffo a Hessian.

Great big bobble hats.
Moustaches designed to stun seagulls.
Big black booties.

Overall, a truly poofy display of military stupidity.
