Re: our national anthem
I've had the radio on and heard Jerusalem played as the English anthem, and it's a lot more inspiring than that awful dirge Gawd Save the Queen. Written by Blake too, who was born in the capital.
Another point about GStQ though - it is the national anthem of the United Kingdom, which includes, for example, Jockland. Now if I played for the sweaties and we were lining up against England, after (the very stirring) Flower of Scotland, I would stand with hand on heart for GStQ as well by way of a bit of pre-match wind-up. After all, it's my anthemn too.
England needs its own anthem.
RadioFreeEurope is knowledgeable and good value on the occasions he isn't being a bellend. (jaxaxe)
