Will England bid goodbye to “God Save the Queen”?
British lawmakers agreed Wednesday to consider replacing the royalist song that serves as England’s anthem at sporting events.
“God Save the Queen” is the national anthem of the United Kingdom — made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland — and is played at the Olympics and other events where the U.K. fields a single team.
Of course, I agree, it should be Jerusalem (quite possibly the only opinion I have in common with Billy Bragg).
However, anyone care to point us to that part of the law which determines that the House of Commons has any power at all over what is sung at Twickenham?
Fuck off then, eh?
