As Tony Harrison from the Mighty Boosh would say ; THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!
I am Scotish, have lived in Scotland all my life, but I have a friend who is going through a phase in his life where he has taken to acting like and English patriot. As such he has learned the British national anthem, and I have discovered this; THE BRITISH NATIONAL ANTHEM IS RACIST.
Have a look at this extract of the sixth verse:
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 Queen!
Rebellious Scots to crush!!! AS IF!!!
I think I will stick to singing "Flower of Scotland" when asked to sing the national anthem ever in the future. So here's the words!
The Flower of Scotland
1. O flower of Scotland When will we see Your like again That fought and died for Your wee bit hill and glen And stood against him Proud Edward's army And sent him homeward Tae think again
2. The hills are bare now And autumn leaves lie thick and still O'er land that is lost now Which those so dearly held And stood against him Proud Edward's army And sent him homeward Tae think again
3. Those days are passed now And in the past they must remain But we can still rise now And be the nation again And stood against him Proud Edward's army And sent him homeward Tae think again
