You mean in the UK they all don't talk like Rumpole of the Baley?

Of course, the waiting music would have to be "Rule Brittania." After all, you can't reference the UK or show a picture of London without playing that song.

I think we'd prefer "God save the Queen", the '70s version by the 'pistols though.
