Taken from the Anthem4England homepage:
\”and those Scots and Welsh that still consider themselves British are now obliged to boo their own anthem for fear of being regarded as traitors by an increasingly nationalistic tendency.\”
No one in Wales is obliged to boo the English (sorry British) anthem by nationalists. There are idiots who boo it just because it\’s the anthem sung by the English (see, I didn\’t call it English anthem), I\’ll grant you that, but on the whole it\’s booed purely because of the lyrics. I personally don\’t boo it (why wind up the opposition any more?) and sympathize with the English position – but statements like the above do not help your cause.
I don’t boo the British national anthem because I don’t hear it – I mute the telly when it comes on.
