    Stand and deliver

    MPs to vote on national anthem for England - BBC News

    Pah.

    O Lord our God arise
    Scatter our enemies and make them fall:
    Confound their politics, frustrate their Popish tricks
    On Thee our hopes we fix
    God save us all.

    English as tuppence, changing and changeless as canal water nestling in green nowhere - how could anyone want to scrap that.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    Lord grant that Marshal Wade

    May by thy mighty aid
    Victory bring.
    May he sedition hush,
    And like a torrent rush,
    Rebellious Scots to crush.
    God save the King!
    yes indeed. Most of you think it's the english national anthem anyway and sing it at football games. Heard a commentator toiday talk about the scots and welsh having national anthems in actual fact the scots do not have a national anthem.

    Go for it bought time you developed a sense of national pride and stopped feeling sorry for yourselves.

    Jerusalem is a lovely piece of music, but not suitable as a National Anthem, due to its Religious connotations - although I do have issues about "God Save The Queen" in that respect as well.

    How about "Bohemian Rhapsody" - that's classed as a Rock Anthem - and it's to do with "Queen".

    What's wrong with Swing Low Sweet Chariot?

    Personally, I'd stick with God Save the Queen - that's the only national anthem I've ever needed.

    Some American sporting-venue managers think it's funny to play the Taiwanese anthem to People's Republic teams.

    And, this week, Nazi-era German anthem at tennis tournament sparks outrage - BBC News

    Deutschland, Deutschland über alles, the full-throttle solo.

    Anyone hosting an American team abroad might like to chance their arm with this:
    We are a sacred brotherhood who love our country true
    We always can be counted on when there’s a job to do
    We serve our homeland day and night, to keep it always free
    And proudly wear our robes of white protecting liberty
    the effect of which should be similar.
