    You're not truly British if you don't know these three patriotic hymns:

    1. "Jerusalem" by William Blake

    2. "I Vow To Thee My Country" by Sir Cecil Spring Rice

    3. "Land of Hope and Glory" by Edward Elgar

    And of course you should all know the national anthem so I'm not adding that to the list!

    Feel free to add anymore that I have missed.

    Similar to a comment Guy Martin made in his recent Channel 4 documentary about China my tea mug is so well used that it doesn't even need a tea bag in it to make a strong brew

    I'm not one for ethnic nationalism, but anyone who literally thinks that there is no such thing as Britishness, because we sometimes import goods, is a literal retard who deserves to work minimum wage until he retires alone with no family and has a pauper's funeral which nobody attends before, being rolled up in a dusty old carpet and thrown into the sea.
