The Brits wanted the American collonists to contribute through taxes to the upkeep of the army that was curently the only organisation preventing French and Spanish Imperial expansion on the continent.
The collonists said, F. that, were not paying taxes so our army can protect us. No, we're going dress up as Indians and throw all your tea in the river. Before making an alliance with France so their artillery can win the decisive battle for us.

King George III was most displeased. Especially as he was a German and an awfull lot of the collonists were also German. The French were delighted and went to live in Canada, while the Spanish concentrated on wipeing out entire cultures in South America.

Meanwhile the Irish, quietly conquered the whole world. (Or at least the bits that reall matter).
