â€œGod Save The Queenâ€ is the national anthem of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Neither England nor Scotland actually have an â€œofficialâ€ national anthem, although the Scots, since 1974 have sung â€œFlower of Scotlandâ€ by popular demand. So the question is, why are the English stuck with having to pray for the Queen, while other nations can sing about how great they are? Ok, during the match thereâ€™s â€œJerusalemâ€, and the first 2 lines of â€œSwing Low, Sweet Chariot, a negro spiritual, neither really doing the job. Is this because of the arrogant, racist English sports fan? Are we no longer permitted to, even only on sporting occasions, believe that we are still a strong people, and sing something uplifting? Land of Hope & Glory may not be perfect, but it sure beats hoping that an old woman in a castle surrounded by men with guns sleeps safely through the night!
