Given the exchange rate, how much do you think they'd charge to do it again?

Please include the word "spanner" in your response.

We only burned one house, and the guy who lived there didn't own the place, he was just an employee who received free lodging. His name was Mason or Madison, something that starts with an M.

American troops had previously burned down private residences in Port Dover and York (a violation of the Laws of War) as well as the Upper Canada Legislature.

Man, we help them in TWO world wars and we can't even count on them to finish burning DC. Is that so much to ask?

I have to find my copy of "The Man Who Burned the White House" to be sure, but I think there were a couple of other government buildings burned.
