United States Constitution and Declaratin of Independence On flagJuly 4th is close.  It is always an interesting day for the approximately 600,000 Brits that live in the USA!

Yes you will be celebrating your independence from Jolly Old England and will be eating around 150 million hot dogs and no we don’t celebrate it as much in England. But what went wrong back then in 1776?
Back then King George, his political advisers and military commanders were arrogant and obnoxious and thought they were invincible and untouchable! Part of the problem was logistics! There wasn’t UPakWeShip back in those days shipping stuff worldwide. It was a tough job keeping the army and navy supplied over 3,500 miles away with enough food and beer. Another major factor was the weather. What Brit doesn’t blame stuff on the weather! Even back in the 1700’s! Add to the fact the English made some silly military decisions, The French were helping America, the rest of the world wasn’t too keen on the English ruling everywhere either, it’s not really surprising the English all retreated and moved back to England!

Just like todays wars, a political solution would’ve been far less costly and much more effective in retaining the loyalty of most American colonists.So what if they had come to an agreement or indeed the British had succeeded? Would The United States of America all have bad teeth, be eating Fish & Chips on the 4th of July, have sexy accents and be listening to the great rapper 50P?

Who knows but worth asking the 600,000 Brits that have now moved overseas from England to the USA and live here quietly in sleeper cells.
