Proposed British flag

This is a design for a British flag to replace the Union Jack. It was especially popular during the Falkland Islands War.

“A world without Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musicals would be less stable and more dangerous for all of us. ”
~ Margaret Thatcher on World Peace

The song Don't Cry for Me, Argentina has been known to make large, hairy British men weep. Taken to heart by the British public during the Falkland Islands War, it was voted second as the song most likely to replace the English national anthem, God Save the Queen in an online poll conducted by The Sun newspaper (the first is the theme from Balamory but we're not taking that very seriously because everyone knows Balamory is in Scotland). This is also Argentina's National Anthem.

For those without comedic tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Don't Cry for Me, Argentina.

Don't Cry for Me, Argentina is the most famous song from the Evita song book, penned by musical maestros Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The pair were inspired to write the score after hearing Tim Brooke Taylor of The Goodies sing the powerful and memorable ditty Don't Cry for Me, Marge and Tina.

edit Lyrics

Cry for me banner
It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done
You won't believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you
I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to
Dont cry for me

This reference map shows which countries should (or should not) cry for me.

Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance
And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seems to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They're not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me
Don't cry for me Argentina
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance
Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do is look at me
To know that every word is true
Don't cry for me Argentina

As you can see the lyrics are extraordinarily dull, but that comes as no surprise to fans of lyricist Tim Rice, most of whom are accountants.
