A Search For A British Motto

An attempt by Prime Minister Gordon Brown to find a national motto has turned up its share of good, bad and ugly suggestions. Among the good:
"Great people, great country, Great Britain"--"Courage, reason, humanity, democracy, monarchy"--"A country so brave and true".Among the bad and ugly:
"Drinking continues until morale improves"--"Our glass is half empty"--"Fat, rude arrogant, racist, selfish"--"Sorry it's all our fault"--"We apologise for the inconvenience"--"No balls, nerve or glory".I've decided to add a few suggestion to try to help. I'm a helper, that's what I do best: "Teeth: they are completely over-rated"

I'm sure you will have a few suggestions of your own. Let's help our British brothers find a motto that suits them to a tee. After all, they would do it for us.
