Let's be honest, the US got a right panning yesterday from all and sundry on ATS, and you're still smarting about it.
Rather than getting upset about it, and lashing out like a mortally wounded animal, you should adopt the mature and dignified bearing of your former
colonial masters, and keep a firm, stiff upper lip throughout any trials and tribulations which you may endure.

Yeah, I get it, she owns 88 Swans, it is in the link I provided.
and you guys aren't even embarrassed to admit this. Sad really, I pity how subservient your people have become.
The Crown has owned the swans of the land since the 1100s, although this has later been refined to be purely the unmarked mute swans in open water.
You appear to be upset at the fact that we have haven't started an uprising against the Queen to reclaim our swans from Royal custody.
Yet where you are going wrong in your ranting and raving, is in your embarrassing attempt to solely apportion blame to the modern-day English people
for not doing anything about this practice, despite the fact that it has been widely accepted by the general population for over 800 years.
If you think that the Queen owning some swans is a sign of subservience on the part of the English people, then you must think that the English people
have been subservient since at least the 12th-century - because the Crown has owned the swans of the land ever since then.
If you pity how ''subservient we have become'', then you must be comparing us to pre-1100s Britain, as, according to your bizarre
swan-owning/subservience link, we ''became'' subservient shortly after that time period.
