Reminds me of the Billy Connelly routine:

And for the record, I also remember Monday morning assembly in front of "Lizzie's" pic, singing god save OUR gracious Queen.
We really are a weird mob, Pol.....little wonder the Poms taunt us with "God save YOUR queen"...... or who could forget...... "You all live in a convict colony....a convict colony.....a convict colony"!!
