5 URLs that prove Britain's greatness.

1. See how the BBC, a publicly-funded organisation, use our money to... visit a pole dancing class. Mmm.

2a.

2b. where they'll find a beautiful parody site that has got the Government in a tizz. Heck, we've even had newspapers reporting on the situation.

Bonus points available for those who recognise the difference in the picture in the top-left of this site.

4. Actually, I guess, as there were three links posted in section two, that is effectively five URLs. That makes things far simpler, as I'm not really sure this counts as British at all. Still, if you're prepared to wait patiently, here's William Shatner's attempt at covering Pulp's Common People, aided by Joe Jackson.
