Watching the Six Nations Rugby has highlighted how awful the British National Anthem really is, especially when compared with the sparkling Italian Anthem and the powerful Marseillaise as enjoyed by the French. The Irish, Scottish and Welsh anthems, too are far more uplifting than the dirge (as described by Billy Connolly), which constitutes God Save the Queen. That aside why we sing about the head of state rather than the country is beyond me. It's plain embarrassing. Come on folks let's have something really striking that can be belted out at national events. How about Rule Britannia (or even the Archers theme tune!)? Anything has got to be so much better.
